The time for commercial solar power is now. Tax credits, commercial solar incentives, and rebates exist at the federal, state, and local level – break even in as little as two to four years.
Maryland business owners who install a solar panel system on their property before 2016 are automatically eligible for a federal tax credit equivalent to 30% of the total cost of the system installed.
This credit through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 is in addition to the State of Maryland Clean Energy Grant Program, which provides solar owners with a $0.50/watt (up to $50,000) grant to further reduce the up-front cost of the system. Right now, businesses based in Baltimore and Harford counties are also eligible for additional property tax credits. With these combined incentives at an all-time high, the gross system cost and payback period of the solar power system is drastically reduced.
