National and subnational governments can offer tax incentives to project investors and end users in the form of reduced value added, corporate or personal income taxes. Tax incentives can be provided as tax credits, tax refunds, cash grants, or initial lowered taxes on purchases. Tax measures could also include “property assessed clean energy” programs that enable homeowners and businesses to obtain affordable financing for clean energy projects that is secured through property tax liens and that can be transferred to a property buyer upon sale.
