The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 extended many consumer tax incentives originally introduced in the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPACT). Residences, businesses, utilities, and governments are eligible for tax credits. Consumers who install solar energy systems, including solar water heating and solar electric systems, can receive a 30 percent tax credit for systems placed in service before December 31, 2016; the previous tax credit cap no longer applies.
