Apply for capacity into TVA's solar program by Dec. 16
In Tennessee and in parts of nearby states, TVA's Green Power Providers (GPP) program is the only viable way to sell solar generation to the local power company. Unfortunately, TVA is closing the program to new projects after 12/31/19. Current GPP participants' 20-year agreements will not be affected.

If we have not already submitted your project request form to TVA, and you want to build a solar project next year to sell your solar energy to the grid, please let us know ASAP. TVA allows 6 months to build for existing buildings, and 12 months to build for new construction.

To allow time for local power companies and TVA to process and approve your Capacity Reservation Request form by the end of this year, LightWave Solar needs to have your project contract signed before December 16, preferably sooner!

Ask your Congresspeople to extend the solar tax credit!
The federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) for solar projects is set to step down to 26% next year, and it will step down further until 2023 when the tax credit goes to 10% for commercial solar projects and zero for residential solar projects.

Continuing the tax credit at 30% will protect and grow green collar jobs, reduce carbon emissions, and lower utility bills for solar system owners. 

If you would like to see continued solar growth and more solar investments by businesses and homeowners, please ask your Senators and House Representatives to support the bills that extend the ITC for solar and other clean energy technologies at the full 30%.
