Solar usage in Hawaii continues to grow, with 2011 being a banner year for Hawaii's solar industry.The Hawaiian Electric Co. recently reported they had reached 20 megawatts of solar photovoltaic energy on Oahu.
At Kama'aina Solar Solutions we're excited to be part of Hawaii's continuing journey towards energy sustainability and malama aina--taking advantage of an abundant and renewable natural resource that belongs to all of us.
Not surprisingly, state and federal solar tax incentives continue to be huge promoters in helping home and business owners make the switch to photovoltaic energy. AlternateEnergy has created an infograph that breaks down the state of Hawaii's tax incentives. The infograph includes all major tax credits and incentives availabe to residents of Hawaii for photovoltaic solar systems, solar hot water systems, and solar attic fans.
The infographic includes the recent November 2012 changes to the state solar tax rules for how a system is calculated.
