Clean Energy Property Tax Credit

Save energy, save money and protect the environment by using clean energy resources in your home or business. As part of the Georgia Energy Challenge, Georgia offers tax credits for certain types of energy efficient and renewable energy property, as well as for the delivery of wood residuals to qualified biomass facilities. The Clean Energy Property Tax Credit (CEPTC) will be available to taxpayers placing qualified clean energy property in service between July 1, 2008, and December 31, 2014. The program’s annual cap is $2.5 million for 2008 through 2011 and $5 million for 2012 through 2014.

The Georgia Environmental Finance Authority (GEFA) provides guidance, requirements, forms and other information to assist eligible taxpayers with claiming the CEPTC. GEFA does not provide tax advice. Please consult a tax professional for specific advice.

Installation of eligible property does not guarantee a tax credit with the state of Georgia, as funds may be exhausted at any time throughout the year. We encourage you to submit your tax credit application immediately upon project completion.

Information on the application process, eligible clean energy property and contact information can be viewed in a PDF.

Funding for the CEPTC is no longer available and applications are not being added to the wait list. However, GEFA is still processing technical review pre-applications in the event of future funding.

You can access the application directly.

Should you have additional questions regarding the CEPTC, please contact Andrea Schroer.
