This makes West Marin a superior location for harnessing the energy of the sun.

 Due to the abundant sunlight in the communities of Nicasio, Point Reyes Station, Stinson Beach, and Bolinas in the West Marin area of Marin County, California, PV cell solar panel systems run at maximum productivity for 71% of the year.

Tax credits and other financial incentives reduce the cost of installing a solar panel system in California’s West Marin area!

When you invest in a solar panel system in the towns of Nicasio, Point Reyes Station, Stinson Beach, or Bolinas in the West Marin area of Marin County, tax benefits and other financial incentives may be available for your home or business.

  • The Residential Renewable Energy Tax Credit is a federal program that allows homeowners to claim a tax credit up to 30% of their total “solar property” project costs, including labor and system wiring.
  • A second government program, the Business Energy Investment Tax Credit (B-ITC), offers a 30% tax credit incentive to qualifying commercial systems that were built before 2022. From the beginning of 2022, the incentive value will decline every year through the end of 2025. From then on, the incentive will be 10% of the solar project installation costs.

To learn more about current incentives, visit the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency. And check back regularly for new savings and incentives programs.

If you decide to lease a solar panel system instead of purchasing, not every financial incentive will be available.
