From the ITC credits you’ll receive for the purchase of an EV, solar and storage to local state and utility rebates, now is a great time to use sustainable energy for your home and car!
Federal Investment Tax Credit
Beginning January 1, 2023, if you buy a qualified used electric vehicle (EV) or fuel cell vehicle (FCV) from a licensed dealer for $25,000 or less, you may be eligible for a used clean vehicle tax credit (also referred to as a previously owned clean vehicle credit). The credit equals 30% percent of the sale price up to a maximum credit of $4,000.
The credit is nonrefundable, so you can’t get back more on the credit than you owe in taxes. You can’t apply any excess credit to future tax years. Learn more.
Electric Vehicle Chargers do will qualify for ITC credits when combined with a home residential solar system or storage installation. Make sure to include all your energy efficiency upgrades as part of your SUNSOLAR SOLUTIONS contract to receive the greatest value.
