SOLAR POWER STATIONS FOR OXBLUE CONSTRUCTION CAMERAS ARE ELIGIBLE FOR RENEWABLE ENERGY TAX CREDITS

OxBlue is notifying construction and real estate professionals in the U.S. about renewable energy tax credits that may be available to them with the purchase of an OxBlue Solar Power Station. This notification is being released to construction and real estate professionals who use construction cameras to stay informed about construction site progress, who are interested in green power, and who are looking for ways to reduce taxes. U.S. Customers who purchase OxBlue solar power stations will normally save more than $1,000 dollars with the federal tax credit. As an additional service, OxBlue will prepare the required paperwork at no charge for use by the client’s tax professional.

Highlights of the Solar Energy Property Tax Credit:

  • The tax credit can be claimed by taxpayers on Form 3468
  • Solar energy property is defined by the code (code section 48(a)(2)(A)(i)(II)) as equipment that uses solar energy to generate electricity, to heat or cool a structure, or to provide solar process heat (but not for a swimming pool)
  • The credit is not allowed for property unless it is depreciable or amortizable; its construction, reconstruction or erection is completed by the taxpayer; and it meets the official quality and performance standards in effect at the time of acquisition

Extension of Tax Credit

At the end of 2015, the U.S. Congress passed legislation that maintains the solar tax credit at 30% through 2019. This creates a significant opportunity for existing and future OxBlue customers who elect to purchase solar-powered construction cameras. After 2019, the credit was to decrease incrementally according to the following schedule: 26% through 2020; 22% through 2021; and 10% thereafter. However, as of December 21st, 2020, the credit has been extended at 26% through 2022, 22% in 2023, and 10% after that.

“OxBlue has been a pioneer in solar-powered construction cameras. Many of our new and existing customers have taken a particular interest in our solar-powered construction cameras due to the ease of installation, reliability, and cost point,” explains Chandler McCormack, CEO of OxBlue Corporation. “The tax incentive makes the decision to purchase the OxBlue solar power stations that much more compelling. Our clients will be rewarded by the federal tax code for using technology that helps keep everyone involved with a project up to date on progress.”

In addition to federal tax incentives, customers of OxBlue may be eligible for other state, local and utility incentives that promote renewable energy. Additional information regarding these incentives can be found on the DSIRE (Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency) website at dsireusa.org.
