Net Metering in Illinois
Net Metering in Illinois

The state’s two largest energy providers, ComEd and Ameren, offer Net Metering as required by the state. If you send more energy to the electrical grid than you are using, you can receive a credit on your bill. Contact an All Energy Solar consultant to see what incentives are available in your community. 

What is net metering?

What is net metering? Net metering is the policy that allows people with a solar power system on their property to receive a credit on their electric bill for the excess energy they produce. Customers of participating Illinois public utility, municipal utility, and rural electric coops may participate in net metering, however the rules of how it works and how much compensation is received differ depending on the electricity provider in your area and the size of your solar energy system.

Solar power customers with utility net metered systems will be credited for each kilowatt produced by their system that is sent back into the grid. If your solar power generation exceeds your electricity usage for a given month, you will receive a credit for each excess kilowatt hour, to be applied in later months when you generate less electricity than you consume.

Federal
Federal Income Tax Solar Credit
Federal Income Tax Solar Credit

Available to any property owner in the United States.

Established by The Energy Policy Act of 2005, the federal tax credit for residential energy property applies to solar-electric systems and several other renewable energy technologies. The Consolidated Appropriations Act, signed in December 2015, extended the expiration date for PV technologies, and introduced a gradual step down in the credit value for these technologies. Additional extensions of the federal solar investment tax credit occurred in 2020 and 2022.

Expenditures with respect to the equipment are treated as made when the installation is completed. If the installation is at a new home, the “placed in service” date is the date of occupancy by the homeowner. Expenditures include labor costs for on-site preparation, assembly or original system installation, and for piping or wiring to interconnect a system to the home.

The maximum allowable credit, equipment requirements and other details vary by placed in service date, as outlined below.

Solar-electric tax credit step-down schedule

  • 30% for all systems placed in service between 1/1/2022 to 12/31/2032
  • 26% for systems placed in service after 12/31/2032 and before 01/01/2033
  • 22% for systems placed in service after 12/31/2033 and before 01/01/2034
  • Standalone solar battery storage is eligible for the tax credit, as of January 1, 2023
  • Systems must be placed in service on or after January 1, 2006, and on or before December 31, 2034.
  • For residential installations, the home served by the system does not have to be the taxpayer’s principal residence.
  • For both residential and commercial installations, if the project meets certain criteria, the Investment Tax Credit can be greater than 30%.

If the federal tax credit exceeds tax liability, the excess amount may be carried forward to the succeeding taxable year. The form that you will need to complete in order to file for the federal tax credit is Form 5695. It is to be filed in conjunction with your Federal Income Tax Return. This form can be found at www.irs.gov.
