Solar and Wind Energy Business Franchise Tax Exemption
You are here
For the purposes of this exemption, a solar energy device means "a system or series of mechanisms designed primarily to provide heating or cooling or to produce electrical or mechanical power by collecting and transferring solar-generated energy. The term includes a mechanical or chemical device that has the ability to store solar-generated energy for use in heating or cooling or in the production of power." Under this definition wind energy is also listed as an eligible technology.
Texas also offers a franchise tax deduction for solar energy devices which also includes wind energy as an eligible technology.
