Abstract
In this paper, I investigate the effects of the U.S. federally implemented Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) on states’ solar energy installation and utilization. In particular, I compare relative trends in solar installation and utilization between states with initially higher levels of solar and states with initially lower levels of solar, before and after the implementation of the Solar ITC. My findings demonstrate that states with initially higher levels of solar prior to 2006 — the year the Solar ITC took effect — experienced rapid, significant growth in solar installation and utilization relative to states with initially lower levels of solar, on average. ...
