HIGH TOUCH SERVICE, LONG TERM SUPPORT
The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority offers an upfront incentive to lower the cost of solar for commercial installations. The amount of this rebate is based on the size of the installation and when the installation occurs. As more solar is installed, the amount will be reduced meaning the sooner you go solar the more you will save.
Property Tax Abatement
In 2008 New York State enacted legislation allowing a 4- year property tax abatement for solar expenditures made on buildings located in cities with a population of 1 million or more people. Buildings that install solar systems before 2019 will receive an abatement of 5% of the qualified expenditures over 4 years.
Investment Tax Credit
The federal investment tax credit allows a taxpayer to claim a credit of 30% of the cost of a solar system. The ITC is a dollar for dollar reduction in income taxes that an business would otherwise pay to the federal government. The ITC is claimed by the owner of the system, and can even benefit an organization that pays little to no taxes when using certain financing options.
The Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS) allows businesses to recover the cost of solar systems over 5 years. Systems installed before 2019 qualify for a 40% bonus depreciation in year one. Bonus depreciation drops to 30% in 2019, and 0% in 2020 and beyond. The depreciation is recognized by the owner and can lower costs for those with no tax appetite when using certain financing options.
SOLAR IS FOR EVERYONE
Community solar now allows anyone who owns a roof to generate extra income from otherwise unused space. Community solar is a large scale, shared solar installation that allows anyone in the same utility load zone to access clean energy produced by the system and get credits on their electric bills. Community solar developer will pay you an annual rent for use of your rooftop and oftentimes repair the roof if there are existing issues. You increase your NOI and Cap Rate by choosing to add solar to your existing assets.
