The IRS has issued new rules for small wind energy systems and the Investment Tax Credit (ITC). The ITC is a federal tax credit for renewable energy systems.
In the case of small wind, the credit is 30%. (Read more about the ITC on DSIRE). The new rules require machines to meet certain certification standards, which are defined by the American Wind Energy Association or the International Electrotechnical Commission.
This certification guidance applies to qualifying small wind energy systems that are purchased or operational after January 26, 2015.
