Incentive Programs and Leasing Options make it easier to GO SOLAR with Harmon Solar.

APS offers Renewable Energy Incentive Program opportunities to homeowners and businesses who install various renewable energy sources. Amounts will vary based on the type of technology used and the scope of your project. For example, APS now offers homeowners $.60 per kWh incentive for grid PV Systems for their utility customers. This is down significantly from the 2011 $1.00 per kWh incentive. However, with the decrease in panel costs and the leasing programs now offered through Harmon Solar, you can still go solar for less money out of pocket than you would have paid last year.

Renewable Energy Tax Incentive for businesses Offered by Arizona

The Renewable Energy Tax Incentives Program (A.R.S. §41-1511) was established by the Arizona legislature in 2009 to promote the renewable energy industry in the state.

The goal of the program is to encourage business investment that will produce high quality employment opportunities and enhance Arizona’s position as a center for production and use of renewable energy products. The program accomplishes this goal by providing tax incentives to companies in the solar, wind, geothermal and other renewable energy industries who are expanding or locating in Arizona. The program offers two benefits; up to a 10% refundable income tax credit and up to a 75% reduction on real and personal property taxes.
