Property Tax Exemption for Renewable Energy Systems
Connecticut provides a property tax exemption for "Class I" renewable energy systems and hydropower facilities that generate electricity for private multi-family residential use. The exemption is available for systems installed on or after October 1, 2007, that multi-family dwellings limited to four units. In addition, "any passive or active solar water or space heating system or geothermal energy resource" is exempt from property taxes, regardless of the type of facility the system serves. In addition, Connecticut municipalities are authorized, but not required, to offer a property tax exemption for qualifying combined heat and power (CHP) systems installed on or after July 1, 2007. Connecticut municipalities are also authorized, but not required, to offer a property tax exemption for the amount by which the assessed valuation of an active solar energy heating or cooling system exceeds the assessed value of a conventional heating or cooling system, and also the amount by which the assessed valuation of a passive or hybrid solar energy heating or cooling system installed exceeds the valuation at which such real property would be assessed if built using conventional construction techniques.
