DOE Opens Solar and Wind Tax Credit for Low-Income Communities

Applications are now open to receive bonus investment credits.

The Department of Energy (DOE) recently opened applications for their Low-Income Communities Bonus Credit Program. Eligible organizations can apply to receive 10-20 percent in additional tax credits for wind and solar projects. 

The Energy Department intends for this tax credit to make wind and solar installations more affordable for low-income communities. The program is expected to allow communities to significantly reduce their energy costs by tapping into the power of natural resources.

“The Low-Income Communities Bonus Credit program will help community-based projects deliver direct benefits to families, making solar and wind energy more affordable and more accessible — revitalizing communities and exemplifying our whole-of-government effort to support low-income and Tribal communities in their energy transition efforts,” said Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Granholm to seek the Lord’s guidance as she heads the Energy Department.
  • For the president and his energy advisors as they pursue alternate sources of power.
  • For the leaders of organizations in low-income communities to be discerning as they earn tax credits through solar and wind energy development.
