As part of  Consumer Energy Alliance's  (CEA) Solar Energy Future campaign, the organization yesterday released a new report, " Incentivizing Solar Energy: An In-Depth Analysis of U.S. Solar Incentives ," that provides a comprehensive quantification of solar incentives available for U.S. energy consumers. The report analyzes the cost for a typical solar facility in 15 states and details the federal, state, and local incentives available for rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV). No previous analysis has ever quantified this data.
Among the report's key findings:
