Hawaii is one of the American states cracking ahead to make a switch to clean, solar power. We have reported several achievements Hawaiian Electric Co. reaching 20 megawatts of solar photovoltaic energy on the island of Oahu.
As usual, government incentives play a key part in promoting a switch to renewable power. The Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency is a good place get started, but if you want to make your life a tad easier, check out the infograph that AlternateEnergy has put together so consumers can learn about the gist of what’s on offer in that State.
The graph breaks down all the major tax credits and incentives available to Hawaii residents for photovoltaic solar electric systems, solar hot water systems, and solar attic fans, as well as some statistics on the current state of electricity in Hawaii.
The graphic reflects the recent November 2012 changes to the state solar tax rules for how a system is calculated.
