The Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is a renewable energy incentive program that passed in 2005 then extended multiple times over the years. It currently gives any homeowner
or business that installs solar panelling a dollar-for-dollar tax credit of 30 percent of the cost

I'm Sue Owen, the Communications Intern here at All Energy Solar. Because I'll return to school this fall and won't be able to continue here, I wanted to write a letter to Congress that I hope will express how over the course of this summer internship, I have been wholly persuaded that solar power is the best way for the country to consume energy. In the letter, I ask Congress to enact a hefty tax on carbon. Join me in writing Congress in favor of climate action, and as a collective force we can make the changes necessary to preserve our environment. What an inspiring and educational internship this has been!Read More
Imagine if all the energy utilities in the world got rid of their fossil fuel powered cars, and replaced them with electric hybrid cars. They would save huge amounts on fuel costs and prevent countless pounds of carbon dioxide from infiltrating the polluted environment. It just so happens that Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) and other utilities have begun a revolution in commercial transportation. PG&E’s electric hybrid drive train Class 5 work trucks save fuel and have batteries that can be used to power the grid when electricity outages occur.Read More
