There is a state tax credit for 25% of the system cost up to $2,000.
After deducting the state tax credit , you may claim part of the remaining cost as a deduction to federal taxes thanks to the solar tax credit. This incentive may be spread over several years, and covers all system sizes.

Net Metering Broken Down
Each kWh of unused solar generation sent to the grid offsets the cost of drawing a kWh at a later time eg. at night or on a cloudy day. RMP does let you use excess credit after covering your bill to offset the cost of future bills but they do not credit your account if at the end of the billing cycle you still have credit, it just disappears.
