The Urban and Industrial Sites Reinvestment Tax Credit Program provides up to $100 million in tax credits over a ten-year period to support projects that create jobs and capital investment in under-served areas. An Urban Site Investment Project is eligible if it creates significant economic activity and if it is located in a designated community. Eligible Industrial Site Investment Projects must have made an investment in or improvement to real property that has been subject to environmental contamination.

Montana established the Universal System Benefits Program (USBP) in 1997 as part of its restructuring legislation.

United Power is providing rebates to their customers for the purchase of photovoltaic (PV), wind, and solar water heating systems. These incentives are separate from the rebates provided by the Colorado Governor's Energy Office and require separate applications. PV and wind systems must be grid-connected. Systems up to 25 kW in capacity may be installed, but United Power will only provide a rebate for the first 3 kW. Systems installed as part of new construction or residential development properties are not eligible for this program.
During the 2012 legislative session, Vermont passed a 100% property tax exemption for solar photovoltaic (PV) systems up to and including 10 kilowatts (kW). For systems greater than 10 kW, the state assesses a uniform $4 per kilowatt (kW). This applies to the equipment, not to the land.
The 100% exemption for small PV systems expires January 1, 2023, although a study will be completed by January 15, 2021 recommending whether or not the exemption should be continued beyond the expiration date and whether or not the $4/kW uniform rate should be amended.
This section applies to any excavation which may impact underground facilities, including those used for the conveyance of electricity or the transportation of hazardous liquids or natural gas. Excavation is prohibited unless notification takes place, as described in this chapter.
Through Ukiah Utilities’ PV Buydown Program, residential and commercial customers are eligible for a $1.40-per-watt AC rebate on qualifying grid-connected PV systems up to a maximum system size of 1 MW.

Rebates are available on a first come, first served basis and are limited to $7,000 per residential installation and $20,000 per commercial installation.
