Indiana: Call on your representative to extend the ITC!
A key incentive for homeowners to go solar is set to expire soon unless Congress acts now
The federal solar investment tax credit (ITC) has helped thousands of Hoosiers generate their own clean solar power and lower their energy bills. Solar installations have increased by more than 10,000% nationwide. This has created more than 200,000 jobs, and pumping $140 billion into our economy. In Indiana, there are now more than 3,000 solar jobs.
But unless Congress acts this year, the ITC will phase out in three years. Indiana’s solar market is already facing uncertain headwinds. This is because of changes to our net metering policy. The last thing we need is federal policy making it harder for Hoosiers to go solar.
That’s why it’s so important to urge your Congress Member to co-sponsor the bi-partisan Renewable Energy Extension Act (HR 3961). This would extend the ITC for five years at its full 30% value. The bill needs more sponsors from both political parties.
Tell your representative that extending the ITC would help Hoosiers go solar, enjoy cleaner air and water, and create more local careers in the growing solar industry.
