In the HP131 article on the economics of renewable energy ("Money Matters: Does an RE System Make Economic Sense?"), I read, "For systems under 10 kW, the federal government offers a 30% tax credit to homeowners and businesses, with no cap." I believe that the 10 kW limit mentioned here is incorrect. There is no cap on PV system size. For reference, see Section 25D in Title 26 of the U.S Internal Revenue Code: "Residential energy efficient property."
