The Investment Tax Credit (aka HR 3961) is one of the most successful clean energy policies ever passed and has helped support a robust solar industry in the United States.
Since the ITC was enacted in 2006, the U.S. solar industry has:
- Created more than 200,000 jobs
- Invested $140 billion into the U.S. economy
- Increased solar deployment by more than 10,000%
- Grown by an average annual rate of 52% each year
Despite this massive success, the ITC has already begun stepping down ahead of a complete elimination of the credit for residential systems in 2022, while the commercial credit drops to 10%.
Politicians on both sides of the aisle have stated their commitment to addressing climate change and developing solutions to reduce our nation’s carbon emissions. Please let them know that you support extending the Solar ITC as part of this solution. Thanks!
