No. New Jersey enacted legislation exempting renewable energy systems used to meet on-site electricity, heating, cooling, or general energy needs from local property taxes - making solar the only home improvement you can make that increases the value of your home without increasing your property taxes!

A tax credit is a dollar-for-dollar reduction in the income taxes that a person or company claiming the credit would otherwise pay the federal government. The ITC is based on the amount of investment in solar property.

A taxpayer may claim a credit for qualified expenditures for a system that serves a dwelling unit located in the United States that is owned and used as a residence by the taxpayer. Expenditures with respect to the equipment are treated as made when the solar panel installation is completed. If the solar installation is at a new home, the "placed in service" date is the date of occupancy by the homeowner. Expenditures include labor costs for on-site preparation, assembly or original solar panel installation, and for piping or wiring to interconnect a system to the home. If the federal tax credit exceeds tax liability, the excess amount may be carried forward to the succeeding taxable year.

First, check with your licensed tax professional to be sure that you qualify ... but in our experience, YES the roof qualifies.

Solar panel systems cannot power your house during a power outage unless you install some form of energy storage (a battery back up system). This is true of all solar systems. In recent years, battery backup systems have become less expensive and more popular. If you are interested in complete independence and reliability - talk to one of our solar energy experts about adding a battery backup to your solar energy system.
