This is a good time to do solar. The 30% federal tax credit is still available but being phased out over the next 4 years. Net metering, which provides bill credits for extra electricity put on the grid, will be replaced next year by a new less favorable distributed generation tariff. The federal solar tariff on solar panels hasn't impacted solar prices yet.
