More about solar power in Michigan
In Michigan, solar is becoming an increasingly popular and viable solution for homes and businesses. This has a lot to do with Michigan lawmakers' efforts to promote the adoption of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels and solar thermal (solar hot water) systems. A number of MI initiatives have helped lower out-of-pocket costs, and there's even been talk of setting up a statewide feed-in tariff, or FIT. (FITs ensure that solar panel owners receive a premium price for ALL the electricity that's generated by their system.) A state-sponsored program, for instance, has been offering rebates to residential and small commercial customers of six WPPI Energy Utilities. There is also an energy efficiency grant program, through which businesses, non-profits and schools may receive financial support for solar energy projects. For more information, check out our Michigan solar incentives page.
Not to be overlooked is the 30-percent federal renewable energy tax credit, available to both individuals and companies. For commercial solar power systems installed in 2009 and 2010, companies can opt instead to receive a solar energy grant equal to the 30-percent tax credit -- this is a great incentive.
