Photovoltaic Tax Credit Rules Discussed at Public Hearing

Nov 25, 2013

The State Department of Taxation conducted a public hearing on solar photovoltaic tax credits today and is weighing the possibility of making a temporary rule permanent by the end of the year.    As HPR’s Wayne Yoshioka reports, solar PV industry leaders say the department is contributing to market uncertainty and hampering the state’s goal of achieving greater energy independence.
