In addition to the Federal 30% Business Energy Tax Credit, the Solar Jack system qualifies for many individual state tax incentives. The DSIRE (Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Energy) website operated by the N.C. Solar Center at N.C. State University is an excellent source for information. You should always consult with your tax professional regarding applicable tax credits and incentives. Solar Jack has no affiliation with the N.C. Solar Center.

Pacific Gas and Electric Company report: “Solar Jack Emerging Technologies Technical Assessment”, prepared by Lincus, Inc. – June 15th, 2016
Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s (PG&E) Emerging Technologies Program commissioned and funded an assessment of the Solar Jack Energy Management System. The assessment and resulting report was performed and prepared by Lincus, Inc. under the direction of a PG&E project manager. The 43-page report provides a complete technical assessment of the Solar Jack Energy Management System (EMS) and validates that the Solar Jack EMS captures and recycles the waste energy produced by rod beam pumps (“pump jacks”).
For this assessment, complete data was collected at two host sites selected by Lincus, Inc. and PG&E. Test results from these sites showed that the Solar Jack EMS yielded energy savings ranging from 16.7% to 51.7% of the baseline energy consumption. These results were consistent with case studies generated by Solar Jack based on data collected from previous installations.

A Solar Enhanced, Zero-Waste Energy Management Solution
This white paper describes the energy inefficiencies that exist in the operation of most pump jacks and how a solar enhanced, zero-waste energy management solution eliminates these inefficiencies and reduces maintenance requirements, allowing the pump jack operator to reduce their overall operating cost.
