The federal government provides a tax credit for 30% of the system cost for homeowners who own their own solar photovoltaic systems. These savings do not apply with a solar lease agreement, so homeowners that own their own system keep these tax credits and experience the most savings. Additionally, California State law prohibits a property tax increase for adding a PV system, so your property value increases with a SunStar system without increasing your tax burden.
