26% Federal Solar Tax Credit has been extended.

This week, the Federal Government passed a bill extending the 26% solar investment tax credit (ITC) for two more years.

Under this new bill, residential, commercial, industrial, and utility-scale solar projects installed in 2021 and 2022 will be eligible for 26% tax credit. This number will drop down to 22% for solar projects in 2023, and disappears completely for residential installs beginning in 2024


This post will be about batteries. ALL types!! There are literally DOZENS of battery chemistries out there. I will talk here about the 6 or 8 MOST USED types, and let you know which are the best, and which are the most expensive. Funny, it’s not just the purchase price that matters,… From a common sense standpoint, the battery LIFE is important and the right way to calculate cost is on a $ per charge/discharge cycle over the guaranteed LIFE of the battery. This makes the most sense and is the most accurate way to figure things. I’m a bit pressed for time, so please come back in a couple days and I’ll have some HONEST impartial battery information for all you data hungry solar enthusiasts!!
