Bail-Out Money is Coming Your Way... Ok, Just a Little.

The new year brings new ways to save money. Now Solatube is qualified as an energy improvement option for your home, making you eligible for a federal tax credit of 10% of the material cost, up to $200. For more information and qualifications, download the Frequently Asked Questions sheet.

To receive your tax credit, you will need:
  • To fill out IRS form 5695.
  • The Energy Star/NFRC label attached to the Solatube diffuser OR the DIY kit packaging. (You can also find it on the Solatube website.)
  • The Energy Star Document (included in your Owner Packet, provided by the installer)
  • A copy of the original purchase agreement
All you have to do is take the above information to your accountant when you do your taxes for 2009. This is just another great reason to install Solatubes in your home. You're saving money on energy, your home is brighter and more enjoyable, and the goverment's rewarding you for it.
