  1. Solar Thermal Heating Systems forSouth Central Alaska Andy Baker, P.E. Independent Clean Energy Consultant YourCleanEnergy LLC

  2. Your Clean Energy Finding affordable alternatives to fossil fuels is now one of the great challenges of our times Viable energy projects must meet realistic criteria: We seek out projects that will capture the imagination and interest of clean energy advocates in government, business and the public; projects that can remain sustainable through the expected design life. AFFORDABLE RELIABLE SAFE

  27. INCENTIVES FOR SOLAR THERMAL SYSTEMS FEDERAL TAX CREDIT – RESIDENTIAL 30 % Tax Credit , no cap limit Solar water heating property must be certified by SRCC or by comparable entity endorsed by the state in which the system is installed. At least half the energy used to heat the dwelling's water must be from solar.

  28. FEDERAL TAX CREDIT – COMMERCIAL 30% Investment Tax Credit – no limit The credit is equal to 30% of expenditures, with no maximum credit. Eligible solar energy property includes equipment that uses solar energy to generate electricity, to heat or cool (or provide hot water for use in) a structure, or to provide solar process heat. IRS FORM 3468
