UNCLE SAM WANTS YOU
TO SAVE ENERGY

Have you been wanting to green your home, but don’t have the green to do it? As part of the federal stimulus package, the government is offering a tax credit on various products that will help boost your home’s energy efficiency. The tax credit covers 30 percent of the purchase price—and, in some cases, the installation cost as well—of eligible products “placed in service,” or put into use, in existing primary residences (not new construction) between January 1, 2009, and December 31, 2010. The maximum credit you can receive for all qualifying products during this period is $1,500.

Here is a brief summary of basic eligibility requirements; because not all items in a category qualify for the tax credit, be sure to confirm product eligibility before you buy. The Energy Star website (see the Related Resources) provides more detailed information as well as resources to help you choose the right products for your home.

For these items, the tax credit applies to both purchase and installation costs:

States and utilities may offer additional incentives (see the Related Resources) for the products listed above, or for products not included in the federal tax program, allowing you to save even more money.
