Solar power in Juneau, Alaska
Alaska Electric Light & Power (AEL&P) offers Juneau solar customers net metering. Through their net metering program, excess generation produced by a solar system will be credited at the avoided cost rate of electricity. Though it is less than the retail rate, it is still extra money in your pocket that can be used to help cut utility bill costs.
Juneau residents can also take advantage of the solar tax credit. The tax credit is equal to 30% of the cost of a solar system and is applied to your federal income taxes. In some cases, the credit could wipe out your entire tax bill for a year! The combination of the federal tax credit and AEL&P’s net metering program can provide you with a great return on investment when installing a solar system in Alaska.
