The federal solar tax credit is 26% of your total solar investment through the end of 2022. This percentage goes down to 22% through the end of 2023 and is unavailable for residential solar systems after that. Tax credits are subject to change and eligibility for federal tax credits depends on your individual and financial circumstances, so we recommend you always consult with your accountant or tax advisor to determine your eligibility.⁵
