Installing a new roof along with a Solar PV system allows you to take the 30% Tax Credit on the FULL invoice amount. Essentially anything that is involved with getting a solar system on your roof is included in this tax credit calculation – be it roofing or electrical upgrades.
Since the solar PV system is structurally connected to the roofing system, this is considered as a 1-system installation so that the roofing component is a functional part of the PV system, and therefore it and its associated costs are covered in the Federal IRS 30% tax credit.
IRS Form 5695 is the form you submit for the Renewable Energy Tax Credit, which reads:
Qualified solar electric property costs… No costs relating to a solar panel or other property installed as a roof (or portion thereof) will fail to qualify solely because the property constitutes a structural component of the structure on which it is installed.
For the cost of a solar installation you can install solar panels and a new roof.
$12,000 Roof + $18,000 Solar = $30,000 Total Project, and a $9,000 Tax Credit!
