About Tax Exempt Solar

ABOUT TAX EXEMPT SOLAR

Tax exempt organizations often require a unique approach to going solar since tax-related clean energy incentives are typically not available to tax exempt organizations.  Schools, religious insitutions and other non-profit organizations often take advantage of a lease or power purchase agreement (PPA), effectively reducing installation costs significantly via a third-party solar provider.

PROJECT FINANCING

Depending on your city and utility, financing for tax exempt solar projects may be available in the form of:

  • Solar Leases
  • Power Purchase Agreements
  • Property Tax Assessments
  • Rooftop Rental Programs

UTILITY REBATE AND INTERCONNECTION PROGRAMS

Rebate funds are available from most Los Angeles area utilities to reduce upfront costs for onsite generation. California utilities are required to credit customer electric bills at full retail rates for each kilowatt-hour (kWh) of grid-connected solar power generated on the customer premises.

Southern California Edison and Los Angeles DWP offer “feed-in tariff” programs to purchase excess customer-generated electricity at fixed wholesale rates over a long-term contract, usually twenty years.
