Solar For Religious Properties & Places of Worship

Harnessing the power of solar energy for your religious or faith-based property can help you reduce energy costs and embrace an environmentally friendly approach to sustaining the planet.

When you adopt 100% renewable solar power for your church, mosque, or other place of worship, you open the door to many benefits, including setting an inspiring example to the community of a more sustainable approach to energy usage. You’re also eligible for clean energy tax credits under the Inflation Reduction Act.

TENCO SOLAR has over 20 years of expertise in the installation, maintenance, and financing of solar panels and solar battery storage, ensuring a hassle-free transition to solar power at your house of worship. We also offer commercial solar carports, free consultations, and exceptional customer service.

Benefits of Solar Energy For Churches & Places of Worship

Places of Worship, churches, or other religious properties that switch to energy generated by solar panels will enjoy three key benefits that make the investment worth it:

Cost Savings

Just like homes and businesses, religious institutions can significantly reduce their electricity bills by generating their own solar power. This can free up funds for other important initiatives.

Solar installations on religious properties serve as visible symbols of the institution's commitment to sustainability and social responsibility. They can inspire pride among congregation members and enhance the reputation of the organization within the broader community.

Religious Property Solar Financing Options Available

Investment Tax Credit

Faith-based, tax-exempt entities can also take advantage of the federal government’s Investment Tax Credit of 30% or more, depending on your project’s specifics. Available incentives include:

  • Direct pay: This refund from the IRS is in the form of a tax credit. It’s available for projects placed in service after 2022 and before filing for the credit. Projects that produce less than one megawatt of power have a baseline coverage set at 30%. Those who begin construction in 2024 and are 1 MW or above in size must meet domestic content requirements to receive the full refund.
  • Transfer of credit: If your property isn’t eligible for direct pay, you can sell all, or a portion of, the tax credits for a given year to an unrelated eligible taxpayer.

A tax advisor can offer more information about these options and how they apply to your property.
