The Federal Government expanded its effort to promote energy efficiency and conservation in dwellings by offering financial incentives. Credits for renewable energy systems; such as solar panels, solar water heaters and solar photovoltaic systems, cover up to 30% of the cost of the systems plus labor and installation expenses, with no set maximum on the size of the allowable credit.
Tax payers can claim their credits using IRS form 5695 (www.irs.gov). This reflects Congress’ view that over the long term homes and buildings should be encouraged to use alternative sources of energy production to supplement or replace traditional carbon fuel based sources. If Florida home owners install what the state government defines as a renewable energy device, the Florida Department of Revenue will EXEMPT that equipment from property taxes up to the combined original cost of the equipment plus the installation cost.
To qualify, renewable energy devices must have been installed after Jan 1 2009. (Chapter 196.175 F.S. www.flsenate.gov). SOLAR RIGHTS LAW (section 163.04, Florida Statute) 163.04 Energy devices based on renewable resources. (www.flseia.org)
