U.S. Federal Small Wind Tax Credit
U.S. home owners and businesses can save 30% off the total cost of their Windspires by applying for a 30% tax credit on their federal income taxes. The credit applies to the total cost of the project, including the turbines and installation.
U.S. Businesses are also eligible to take their 30% tax credit as cash. Under a new program introduced by the U.S. Treasury and Department of Energy, businesses may now collect their credit in cash within sixty days of completing an installation instead of waiting for an end of year tax credit.
To learn more about the program visit the U.S. Treasury website.
