How/when will I receive my rebate?
If your energy company provides a rebate in your area, the rebate is assigned to us, DKD Energy, so we can subtract that amount from the total cost of your system before you pay anything or prior to financing your loan (if applicable).
In short, you benefit from your rebate immediately (we get to be the ones waiting for it after your install, so you can save money right away).
Do I get a tax credit?
Yes! Everybody who installs solar is eligible to receive a federal tax credit. However, the amount will vary on your taxable income, so we recommend you talk to your CPA or Accountant.
If for any reason you can't get the full rebate the your first year's return, you can spread the rebate amount over up to 5 years. So unless you don't pay any taxes you should get your full tax credit back.
