Tax Cuts for Going Green

The federal government wants to give you a little incentive to go green.
Until Dec. 31, you can save up to $500 in consumer tax credits when you buy energy-saving products such as high-efficiency furnaces, water heaters, windows, and insulation.

Even after the end of the year, you can get reimbursed for up to $2,000 for solar upgrades. Products include solar water heaters and photovoltaic roof panels, and this incentive is good through Dec. 31, 2008.

For a complete breakdown of all of the tax incentives, just head over to the Energy Star site.

You can install those curly-cue florescent lightbulbs, put caulk around your windows, hang heavy curtains to close at night, etc. Its kind of like getting a tax cut.
