Home solar tax credit: How to claim it (Form 5695)
If you installed a home solar system last year, this might be one of the few times when you’re eager to file your taxes. That’s because the tax credit is worth 30% of the total price of your home solar installation. Most home solar installations are between 4 kW and 10 kW in size. The national median price of an installation is $3.80 per watt, which means that most installations will cost at least $15,000 before incentives.
