Tax Incentives

Energy efficiency tax credits may be dropping, but they aren’t disappearing.  If you plan to make any improvements to your home this year, make sure you check out the changes that have been made to the federal tax credits available for energy-efficiency upgrades. 

Dakota Electric strongly encourages members to consult with their tax adviser or the IRS before beginning a project or making a purchase that may qualify for a tax credit. Dakota Electric is not providing legal or tax advice.
