Take Advantage of Local Pennsylvania Tax Incentives for Solar Panels
Find out exactly how much solar will save Philadelphia, PA homeowners
In 2016, the US Department of Energy launched a program to recognize local governments for encouraging solar energy and removing barriers to solar development. This revolutionary program was something called “SolSmart.”
One of the first cities to receive a SolSmart designation, Philadelphia, now enjoys a “Gold” rating as a national leader in solar energy.
As Philadelphia’s mayor Jim Kenney proudly stated, “Solar helps us create jobs and lower our carbon footprint. We are committed to a 100 percent renewable energy future, and solar is a key piece of the puzzle to get us there.” Kenney was an early advocate of Philadelphia’s Energy Campaign, which promotes renewable energy and funds a local solar development initiative, Solarize Philly, the largest in the nation.

To make things easier for homeowners interested in solar energy, we’ve answered some of the most common questions we’ve received from Philadelphia residents.
What are My Solar Financing Options?
If you’re interested in solar financing, now is the time to invest. The federal government offers a national program designed to promote solar energy: a 30 percent solar tax credit for the cost of solar panels. However, this credit is due to drop to 26 percent in 2020 and 22 percent in 2021. The program is set to expire in 2022.
Momentum Solar also offers unique solar financing options for Philadelphian residents, including plans with flexible payment options.
How Do Solar Costs Compare to My Current PECO Bills?
The actual cost of solar energy is quite low. For the period of your loan, however, your monthly costs will be determined by the scope of your financing. By taking advantage of the federal program as well as Momentum Solar’s financing options, you will likely pay monthly bills equal to or lower than your monthly PECO bill.
Once your system is paid for, your energy costs will be minimal to zero with a nominal annual cost for maintenance.
Is My Home A Good Candidate for Solar Panels?
Philadelphia may have up to 128,000-plus solar-capable rooftops. However, your home’s solar viability depends on many factors, including the integrity of your home’s structure, your roof type (including the pitch) and the condition of the electrical wiring. You’ll also need to assure that the local energy supplier, PECO, can connect you to the energy grid.
