As of right now, the Investment Tax Credit is set to “step down” at the end of 2019. Read our blog to learn why it’s important that we defend the ITC and have it extended.


The Investment Tax Credit (ITC), otherwise referred to as the Federal Solar Tax Credit, allows you to deduct 30% of the total cost of solar panel installation from federal taxes. This tax credit applies to both residential and commercial systems alike. Additionally, there is no cap on the value of the systems.

The ITC was established by the Energy Policy Act of 2005 and was set to expire at the end of 2007, but due to its popularity and effectiveness, Congress has extended it several times. Currently, it is set to gradually expire starting in 2019 and will cease to exist for residential systems by 2021. See below for a diagram of the changes:

HES Solar places safety as our highest priority, and that extends from our employees to our customers, to anyone else we may potentially be in contact with through the course of business. Along with the safety procedures we adhere to in the normal course of our work and projects, we have instituted several safety protocols for all of our employees during these times of vigilant public health precautions due to COVID-19. 

Our employees are given temperature checks each time they enter the office, and office visits are only allowed when necessary. 

We’ve instituted remote working for all of our employees who are able to perform their job duties at home. Meetings are done through virtual meeting rooms. 

Field employees maintain a six-foot distance between themselves and fellow employees, customers, vendors, and all others unless unavoidable. 

Masks are required whenever interacting with fellow employees, customers, or the public and whenever social distancing is not possible. 

To ensure these procedures can be met, employees have been provided with face masks or face coverings, eye protection, gloves (as necessary), and foot coverings (as necessary). 

To help ensure frequent sanitizing, employees have been provided sanitizers in the form of gel, liquid, and wipes, antibacterial soap, and paper products for cleaning such as tissues and paper towels.
