Electric Vehicle (EV) charging has a new boost from a re-instated tax incentive that offers a 30% federal tax credit to businesses and homeowners who install EV charging stations before December 31, 2020.

The tax credit legislation also retroactively applies to EV chargers installed in 2017, 2018 and 2019.  To read a bit more about the legislation and find the IRS form you can take a look at

Solar also continues to enjoy an exceptional tax credit through 2020 at a rate of 26% of the installed cost.


This particular solar installation powers the charging of a Chevy Bolt as well as the energy needs of the classic Sears kit home in the background.  The system is grid-tied for net-metering with  MonPower, the local utility.
