SOLAR ROOFING

SOMETHING NEW UNDER THE SUN


SOLAR ROOFING IN NEW YORK


Have you been considering making your life more environmentally friendly? Solar roofing from Graves Brothers Home Improvement is a great place to start! It’s easy to take advantage of the power of the sun — even in New York. If you’re getting a new asphalt roof, we’ll also check to see if solar is a good choice for you. It’s all part of our free estimate.

Solar is a clean, powerful, renewable energy, and by using solar panels on your home, you can produce about 80% lower carbon emissions than fossil fuel. If you’re trying to go green, or just buying an electric vehicle, this is a great place to start your energy independence.

With the appropriate solar energy system, you can reduce, and even eliminate, your electric bill. Save even more with New York State and federal incentives for solar panel roof installation!”

SOLAR TAX CREDITS


NEW YORK STATE SOLAR EQUIPMENT TAX CREDIT

New York State offers a tax credit to those who purchase solar energy equipment for the purpose of heating, cooling, hot water, or electricity for residential use. The credit is 25% of your solar energy equipment, up to $5,000. Complete the IT-255 claim form to receive your tax credit.

FEDERAL SOLAR TAX CREDIT

In addition to the New York State incentives, there is also a federal solar tax credit. The Investment Tax Credit (ITC) allows you to deduct 26% of the cost of installing a solar energy roof from your federal taxes. There is no cap, and this credit applies to both residential and commercial properties. Just use Form 5695 for residential energy credits. The amount of this credit will decrease at the beginning of 2023, so call us today to get that solar roof started!
