The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) developed three resources to help Americans navigate changes to the federal solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC), which was expanded in 2022 through the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). These resources—for homeowners, businesses, and manufacturers—provide thorough overviews of the ITC, Production Tax Credit (PTC), and Advanced Manufacturing Production Tax Credit (MPTC). They demystify the tax code with intuitive explanations and examples, answer frequently asked questions, and explain the process of claiming the tax credits.
