Commercial systems receive a 10 percent tax credit (maximum of $50,000) for wind, geothermal electric, and biomass systems less than 600 kilowatts. For systems with a total capacity of 600 kilowatts or greater, the commercial tax credit is $0.35 per kilowatt-hour for four years.

How to Apply To receive a tax credit for installing a renewable energy system, a taxpayer must submit an application to the Utah Geological Survey's State Energy Program for certification of a system's eligibility and the amount of any tax credit that may be claimed. When a tax credit has been certified, the taxpayer will receive a completed Utah State Tax Commission Form TC-40E that the taxpayer may use to document a tax credit claimed on his or her tax return.
