This regularly scheduled sponsored column is written by the Arlington Initiative to Rethink Energy team (AIRE). This county program helps you make smart energy decisions that save you money and leaves a lighter footprint on the environment.
Solar is popping up everywhere. So far this year, we’ve had more than 175 households join our Solar and Electric Vehicle Charger Co-op. Thank you, Arlington!
The cooperative helps residents, small businesses and nonprofit organizations buy solar and electric vehicle (EV) chargers at a discounted price through bulk purchasing. The cooperative provides support to participants to make the purchasing process easy. This year, we also provide information about storing your solar power at home in battery systems.
Take advantage of the federal residential solar and electric vehicle charger tax credits. This year, the residential tax credits are 26% for solar and 30% (up to $1,000) for electric vehicle chargers. Business tax credits are also available.
There are two final information sessions this year. Please join us to learn more:
- July 23 @ 12 p.m. In Spanish/En Español
- July 28 @ 6:30 p.m. In English
If you are a building owner, like Rocklands BBQ, you should know that you can obtain financing through an Arlington program for up to 100% of the hard and soft costs associated with improvements related to improving energy efficiency, switching to renewable energy and increasing water efficiency.
Developers can get up to 20% of a new building’s total eligible construction costs financed, provided the proposed building exceeds certain energy performance codes.
Congratulations again to Rocklands BBQ for becoming the first Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) financed project in the entire Commonwealth of Virginia.
If you are a contractor, property owner or developer, learn more about how the Arlington C-PACE program can benefit you.
