Howard County, MD Solar Incentives

Note: In May 2011 the Howard County Council approved legislation (Council Bill 21-2011) effectively ending this incentive program. The enacted legislation limits the tax credit to property owners from which an application was received on or before May 25, 2011, or which had a contract in place on or before May 25, 2011 and submit an application by April 1, 2012. The legislation also increased the aggregate annual tax credit limit from $250,000 to $500,000 in order to help clear an extensive waiting list of property owners who have already been approved for tax credits.
 

Why not take advantage of incetives that your county offers? If they dare you to pay less taxes and do something smart for your home like install your own solar electric system, then go for it!

Howard County residents receive a property tax credit of up to $5,000 for having their own solar electric system installed on their home or business.

Howard County is a leader in implementing green technology that will allow its residents to live healthier and with stable electric bills in the future. 

A system that produces $2,500 per year of savings will cost +/- $14,500! The system will last 25 years or longer!
