Commercial Solar in 2023

Going Solar in 2023

We’ve never seen anything like it.  The Inflation Reduction Act has enacted Federal Tax Credits for Solar that increase previous amounts by 100% in some cases.

Many of our clients are enjoying 50% tax credits.  When combined with depreciation, those tax credits result in tax shields covering 75% of a system’s cost.

The Dept of the Treasury has released guidance on the tax credits and various adders that create the pathway to retaining these tax credits

Unprecedented Tax Breaks

The investment Tax Credit has been increased from 26% to 30%, and may now be transferred or sold to other taxpayers. The 30% applies to both business and residential projects, including projects installed in 2023, and will last until the end of 2032.

Energy storage projects were previously ineligible for tax credits unless they were connected directly to solar power projects. The Inflation Reduction Act removes these requirements and allows energy storage projects to receive the same 30% tax credit, even if they are stand-alone facilities. Batteries connected to a solar power project will continue to qualify for the credit, even if they are no longer being charged by solar power.

Interconnection costs will also be included in the tax credit, for projects smaller than 5 MWac.

SGE Solar Employee Outing 2023

Our team here at SGE Solar has been putting in some serious hustle, staying late, working weekends, and just generally going above and beyond. In light of  everyone’s hard work, why not have a well-deserved break at the ballpark! We all had a fun-filled day watching the WooSoxs at the new stadium Polar Park! Thank you to all our customers patience while we had the office closed for the day. And thank you to all our employees for continued hard work and dedication throughout the year. It’s like hitting the reset button on productivity and motivation.

The Future is Bright: Massachusetts Relaxes Net Metering Cap for Solar Projects

The future of renewable energy in Massachusetts is looking brighter than ever! Last year Governor Baker signed H5060, An Act Driving Clean Energy and Offshore Wind, into law. This landmark legislation, which seeks to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the state’s dependence on fossil fuels, includes a key provision to relax the net metering cap for residential solar projects up to 25 kilowatts. This is a major step forward for renewable energy initiatives in the state, and with this new policy, Massachusetts will be able to take advantage of the economic and environmental benefits of solar energy.


The new law is an important milestone in Massachusetts’ commitment to clean energy, and we’re excited to see what the future holds. Contact us to learn more and to get a free solar quote for your home or business!
