Rep Power: 10
I live aboard my boat, I don't have a house (I don't see how that makes me a rich jerk?). In 2007 I successfully (and legitimately) claimed a federal tax credit for my solar panel installation. This turned what would have been tax owed, to a rebate - Yea!
I understand that for 2009 wind generators are now also include and you can get a tax credit for 30%, but you'll have to read the small print, it may only be valid if this is your PRIMARY residence.
The credit is for 30% of the full thing (system + installation costs). There may be a cap but this certainly didn't impact us on Footprint in 2007.
