Virginia offers a variety of valuable incentives for homeowners who are ready to go solar. To get a complete picture of how much a solar panel installation might cost you in Northern Virginia with these tax savings and other incentives, visit our Virginia purchase guide here.

Local Property Tax Exemptions

Certain Virginia Counties, including Prince William, Loudoun, and Fairfax, offer full or partial property exemptions for solar systems used primarily for heating, cooling, and hot water systems.

Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) for Virginia Solar Panels

The Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is a national incentive that allows homeowners to recoup a big chunk of equipment and installation costs. 

The dollar-for-dollar credit is worth 26% of the total cost in 2021 and 2022, dropping to 22% in 2023 before sunsetting in 2024. 

Now is the time to take full advantage of the credit, which has a significant impact on the total cost of making the transition to solar.
