    Find out how much you can save by going solar in the Aloha State

    Want to lead Hawaii's transition to solar energy?

    Enjoy all of the benefits of simple solar ownership.

    As the southern-most state in the U.S., Hawaii is home to some of the best sun in the country. But this isn't the only reason going solar makes sense - the state also boasts some of the best financial incentives for solar ownership.

    First and foremost, Hawaiians are eligible for the Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC). This means that you can realize substantial savings through solar ownership by deducting 30% of your system's price tag from what you owe Uncle Sam. In addition, Hawaii offers a 35% state tax credit that can be applied to your tax liability at the state level. If that's not enough to make you hula-hoop around, going solar will also help you get away from high-priced utility power and put even more money back into your pocket.

    Over the past few years there has been a solar eruption across Hawaii, and you will be hard pressed to find a better time to go solar in the Aloha State. Soon enough you will be throwing luaus with all of the savings from your Dividend Solar EmpowerLoan!

    Frequently Asked Questions

    The potential savings from going solar in Hawaii are very real. Aside from saving money on your monthly electric bill, there are other key incentives that help solar ownership in Hawaii make sense: 1) the 30% federal tax credit 2) the 35% state tax credit, and 3) net metering.

    First, the federal government offers a 30% Incentive Tax Credit (ITC) which is available in all 50 states*. This credit, which is equal to 30% of your system cost, is applied to the federal taxes you owe each year, thereby lowering the net cost of your solar system. The ITC is a great benefit of going solar: money that you would otherwise pay in taxes can now be used to own your solar system sooner. It is important to note that you can only reap the benefits of the federal ITC if you own your system directly - it is not available to homeowners who opt for a third-party ownership model, such as a Solar Lease or Power Purchase Agreement. With the Dividend Solar EmpowerLoan, you own your system and you get all of the economic benefits of going solar in Hawaii.

    Secondly, Hawaii's solar tax credit covers 35% of the system and can be used as a credit on your state tax payments.

    Finally, like many other states, Hawaii utilities have Net Metering policies which allow homeowners to be credited for extra energy fed back to the power grid. If designed optimally, a homeowner can expect to offset 100% of their current electricity use while also having some left over to sell back to the grid. Please note that in some areas of Hawaii (e.g., Kauai), utilities have adjusted net metering policies that have reduced the benefit of selling power back to the grid.
