Indiana residents and business owners will learn how the federal tax credit of 26% has been extended through 2021 and 2022 for installing solar panels on houses, farm structures and places of business during the next Zoom meeting of Solarize East Central Indiana.
The meeting sponsored by Solarize ECI, a grassroots community group affiliated with Solarize Indiana, will take place at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday. A 30-minute presentation will be followed by an hour for questions and answers.
There is no charge to attend the meeting, but prior registration is required at facebook.com/solarizeECI or by sending an email request to Carolyn Vann at [email protected] or John Vann at [email protected]. The Vanns are co-team leaders of Solarize ECI.
One of the main benefits of working with Solarize ECI and Indiana Solarize is group pricing that reduces the costs of installing a solar panel system. Adding solar panels to structures also permits more energy independence with less exposure to increasing utility bills, Carolyn Vann said. Net metering will be available through June 2022.
Adding solar will not increase the owner’s property taxes, but it has the potential to increase property value, she said.
