What incentives are available to offset the cost of the system?

There are three main categories of incentives- federal,state, and utility. Federal incentives apply throughout the US (although some entities may not be able to claim them) and are typically in the form of tax benefits. State incentives are awarded by each state and vary in the amount available and the structure through which they are awarded. Utility incentives only apply to a given utility’s service area and are administered by a company as opposed to the government.
