SB 1484 of 2014 provides a tax credit for new renewable energy systems that produce energy for self-consumption and are used primarily for manufacturing. Eligible systems must have a capacity of at least 20 megawatts (MW) or have a typical annual generation of at least 40,000 megawatt-hours (MWh). In order to qualify for a tax credit, the taxpayer must invest at least $300 million in new renewable energy facilities. The tax credit is worth $1 million per year for five years for each facility up to $5 million per taxpayer per year.

Taxpayers must first apply to the Department of Revenue on a form prescribed by the Department. The Department will preapprove taxpayers on a first come, first served basis until it has preapproved a total of $10 million credits in each year. Program guidelines and application for preapproval of the credit are available here.

For the purposes of this tax credit, renewable energy includes a variety of biomass resources, solar thermal electric, photovolatics, and wind.
