There are more than 100,000 residential solar-power customers in Arizona. With federal tax credits for solar energy systems slated to decrease over the next four years, those numbers are expected to climb exponentially as residents take advantage of the incentives before they go away.
“The federal tax credit for solar installations is 30 percent through 2019,” said Joseph Cunningham, director of operations for Sunny Energy, one of Arizona’s largest providers of residential and commercial solar energy systems. “The credit will drop to 26 percent in 2020, then to 22 percent in 2021 before going to zero in 2022.”
