What are the least expensive upgrades to do to my home to qualify for the Residential Energy Efficient Property Credit?

You may be eligible for a credit equal to 30% of the cost during the taxable year for:

  • qualified solar electric systems;
  • qualified solar water heaters;
  • qualified fuel cell property;
  • qualified small wind energy property; and
  • qualified geothermal heat pumps.

Remember that the credit for expenditures made for qualified fuel cell property is limited to $500 for each one-half kilowatt of capacity of the property; the amounts of the other qualified expenditures eligible for the credit are not limited.
