Stop TVA from Under Paying
for Solar Energy
to TVA for FAIR Reimbursement of Green Electricity

What's the change in TVA Green Electricity ?
In 2018, TVA has made a huge change in the way it pays for green electricity to the little guy (you).
The new / 2018 TVA contract with a Green Power Provider ‘pays’ for the solar electricity at a “flat-rate”.
This rate does NOT include any cost increase due to inflation (rising Electric Rate) for the entire 20 years.
What could that hurt ?
Over 20 years the power of inflation is staggering.
Forecasting inflation rates over 20 years, the impact of TOTAL Income to a solar system provider is a decrease of up to 25%
Financially, this lowers the profitability (Annual Return on Investment) by half from 4%/yr to below 2%/yr.
Unfair “Flat Rate”
Reimbursement to Solar
Electricity Providers in the TVA Area
TVA is part of our federal government-owned monopoly.
Yea, you know, the same government that takes taxes from us to "serve" Americans.
The one that is protecting the environment.
You know the one.
Countdown to end of Federal Energy Tax Credit :
you have 4 months
as of Aug, 2019
30% tax credit
for your new solar system will no longer be available after the end of 2019
Schedule of Federal
Energy Tax Credit
on Residential Green Energy Systems
Until the end of 2019, you will recieve a 30% tax credit for you green energy (solar system, wind turbines & solar hot water heating systems) investment. You are able to get back 30% of ALL costs associated with adding a solar system to your home by filing form 5695 with your income tax return.
For the year 2020, you will only recieve a 26% federal tax credit.
For the year 2021, you will only recieve a 22% federal tax credit.
For the year 2022 and forward, there will be NO MORE federal tax credit.
Even if you don’t have enough tax liability to claim the entire credit in one year, you can “roll over” the remaining credits into future years for as long as the tax credit is in effect.
Note: Geothermal Heating & Cooling systems NOW qualify for a tax credt.
