Abstract

Objectives

  • Describe potential implications of Federal solar tax incentives for CSI program design, without advocating for particular changes
  • Identify questions that require further research or IRS determination
  • Solicit feedback and comments on analysis; and suggested next steps

Caveats

  • We are not tax lawyers …
  • ...but this presentation builds off of work conducted by Ed Ing and Keith Martin (neither has reviewed or commented on this presentation), both with deep expertise in the area
  • Open questions remain that can likely only be answered by the IRS
