Earn tax credits for energy efficiency

If you made your home more energy efficient in 2016, you can earn a federal tax credit, Grzes says.

For example, if you installed a solar electric system or solar water heater by the end of 2016, you can claim a credit when you file your taxes next year.

You also can earn a tax credit if you've installed energy efficient doors, windows or skylights. These tax credits are scheduled to end after 2016.
