Tennessee Valley Authority Green Power Providers

Should you choose to become an electricity generator, by participating in TVA’s Green Power Providers program, you’ll have the opportunity to be paid out for the solar energy you generate! Simply sell your electricity to TVA and they’ll pay you a premium payment (way above what you would pay for electricity normally) for the first 5 years the you participate in the Green Power Providers program. You can’t go wrong with a little extra cash in your pocket, and a shorter solar panel payback period.


Federal Tax Credits

The Federal Tax Credit, also known as the Investment Tax Credit, is by far one of the greatest incentives available for homeowners going solar. You can deduct 30% of the cost of your solar equipment from your taxes – thanks to the ITC. Meaning, you’ll be rewarded major savings on your solar installation.
