The Renewable Energy Tax Abatement program came under the Energy Office’s jurisdiction in July 2009. The program awards partial sales and use tax and partial property-tax abatements to eligible renewable energy facilities. The Energy Office staff reviews the abatement applications, conducts public hearings to determine eligibility, and reviews annual compliance audits after abatements have been granted.
Regulations for the program were adopted in 2010. The state has approved 21 tax abatement applications, which include large scale solar PV, solar thermal, biomass, geothermal, and wind projects throughout the state. A list of projects is available online here.
