What incentives and rebates are available to reduce wind energy costs?

There has never been a better time to buy a small wind turbine in terms of incentives. The federal Investment Tax Credit now offers 30 percent of the total cost of an installed system, the first time small wind has had such a generous federal incentive. Some local utilities may also have rebate programs. At the state and local level, there are a number of additional small wind incentive programs. Check with your local utility to see if you are eligible for rebates or other programs. The Database for State Incentives for Renewable Energy and Efficiency maintains a list of rebates and incentives.
