Current incentives and rebates can exceed 50% of the
stimulus package included a tax credit for residential solar
and a rebate for commercial solar. These factors reduce

the cost of the system up to 20%. Both the CSI rebate and
the federal stimulus incentives are set to expire. If you

take advantage and secure your future. At BCC Solar, our
