What does the GOP tax reform mean for solar?

US House of Representatives

House Republicans recently introduced their latest 429-page tax reform bill, which proposes several changes related to renewable energy. The plan would increase taxes on wind, solar, biomass, geothermal, and hydropower in an effort to reap $12.3 billion in government revenue over the next 10 years.

Although the plan would cut the $7,500 federal tax credit for electric vehicle purchases, Republicans opted to extend tax credits for current residential energy efficiency programs to December 31, 2021.
