Draft Residential Energy Tax Credit Form Available

July 13, 2009

The draft of IRS 2009 Form 5695 for Residential Energy Tax Credits is now availabe.  As previously discussed here, this credit provides up to $1,500 for a variety of energy-efficiency improvements including insulation, windows, doors, roofing, furnaces, boilers, and air-conditioners.  It also provides for a 30% credit for renewables including solar PV, solar water heating, wind, and geothermal.

As you’ll see in the disclaimer from the IRS, this form is subject to change.  But it should give you a decent idea anyway.

 We have a good summary of the tax credit with qualifying measures and an FAQ.


Energy-efficiency tax credit and green jobs stories on NPR

May 12, 2009

There were a couple of stories of interest on NPR’s Morning Edition today.  The first was a quick story on the tax credit (with a minor factual error regarding the credit on HVAC installations).  This is much along the lines of what we’ve discussed here earlier

There was also a related story on Green Jobs, which parallels the GreenHomes experience as we expand into new states and locations.
