Saskatchewan Solar Power Incentives, Rebates and Programs
Currently there are no Provincial or Federal incentives for residential solar installations. However if you own a business the following programs may apply to you.
Capital Cost Allowance (CCA) Renewable Energy
The government of Canada makes clean energy projects, such as solar energy, more fiscally attractive for the industry by providing business income tax incentives. The capital cost allowance allows businesses to write off clean energy investments over a period of years.
Canadian Renewable and Conservation Expenses (CRCE)
CRCE is designed to encourage commercial investments in clean energy generation and energy conservation projects by providing income tax incentives for certain start-up expenses associated with these projects.

In addition to the Saskatchewan solar power incentives offered through our partnership with SaskPower, the Canadian federal government offers two solar incentives for those who are committed to, or on their way to, providing sustainable energy. The Capital Cost Allowance Renewable Energy (CCA) falls under two classes in the income tax regulations—certain capital costs of renewable systems are eligible for accelerated capital cost allowance. The second incentive, Canadian Renewable and Conservation Expenses (CRCE) specifically targets new commercial projects by providing certain start-up costs with income tax incentives.
