Solar is backed by the state and comes with federal tax benefits

Go solar in Massachusetts in 2022 and save with some very generous incentives including a 26% federal tax credit, a $1,000 state tax credit, SMART solar cash incentives and savings on your utility bill.

NOTE! The 26% federal tax credit is offered on a national level and is scheduled to phase out by the end of 2023. There is still time to receive the full benefit. Our solar team can tell you more.

Solar is a heavily supported technology in Massachusetts.

Massachusetts is offering some fantastic incentives for solar in 2022. When you buy solar, you get a $1,000 state tax credit, a 26% federal solar energy tax credit, SMART solar cash incentives, and savings on your electric bill for years to come making the cost of solar panels much less than you might think.

The truth about free solar panels in Massachusetts

Some companies offer a solar lease or power purchase agreement on solar. They promise to install the panels for free and claim that you will save. The truth is, leasing companies own the system and reap most of the rewards. Since the solar leasing or power purchase solar company technically owns the system, they take the solar panel tax credit and SMART cash payments. That means you lose out on the real savings.

What’s more, is you are locked into a 20-year contract with the company which can make selling your home difficult or impossible. The best option for solar is to buy the system. Northeast Solar is an award-winning installer, winning the Angie’s List Super Service Award year after year. We pass the solar tax incentives and SMART cash payments to you and offer unsurpassed customer service before, during and after your installation.
