Solarize Indiana will conduct a Zoom meeting March 17 to alert area residents about the extension of federal tax credits for solar panels.
The meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. It will involve a 30-minute presentation followed by an hour for questions and answers. It is free and open to the public, but registration is required. To register, visit or send an email request to Carolyn Vann, firstname.lastname@example.org or John Vann, email@example.com. The Vanns are the co-chairpersons for Solarize Indiana.
During the meeting, area residents and business owners will learn how the federal tax credit of 26 percent has been extended through 2021 and 2022 for installing solar panels on houses, farm structures and places of business.
“One of the main benefits of installing solar with the help of Solarize Indiana is group pricing. In addition to reducing the costs of installing a solar system, adding solar panels to structures permits more energy independence with less exposure to increasing utility bills,” Carolyn Vann stated.
Net metering will be available through June 2022. Adding solar does not affect the assessed value of a structure and will not increase the owner’s property taxes. The press release stated the addition of solar panels has the potential to increase property value.
