Residential Solar & Wind Incentives - Tennessee

Residential Solar & Wind Incentives - Tennessee For residential renewable energy systems in Tennessee, the federal government currently offers an unlimited 30% tax credit toward the purchase price of a solar electric, solar hot water, or wind energy system.

Most residents of Tennessee receive their electricity from the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). TVA has a rather unique program in place for owners of solar electric and wind energy systems, called the Green Power Providers. TVA incentives and capacity vary frequently, please visit their website to better understand incentives.

Note that under this program, TVA owns SREC's produced by the system.

Appraisers also estimate that renewable energy systems increase a building's resale value significantly.
