ARTICLE 25. RESIDENTIAL SOLAR WATER HEATING TAX CREDIT.
§
11-25-1. Amount of credit.
Any person who installs a solar water heating system on property owned by them and used as a residence, shall qualify for a state personal income tax credit of thirty percent of the cost to purchase and install the system up to a maximum amount of two thousand dollars.
§
11-25-2. Restrictions.
In order to receive the credit for a solar water heating system on residential property, the system must derive at least fifty percent of its energy to heat water from the sun.
§
11-25-3. Carryover credit allowed.
If the credit earned in the year the solar heating water system is installed exceeds the allowable tax credit amount the residential property owner may claim for that taxable year, the excess credit may be carried over for the next taxable year.



NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to give credit for energy savings when a solar heating water system is installed on a residential property.
