Before making a qualified investment, a taxpayer shall apply to the Secretary of Commerce to enter into an agreement for this tax credit.

The credit will be taken in ten equal, annual installments, beginning with the year in which the taxpayer places into service the new renewable electric cogeneration facility.

Limitation of Credit

If the amount of the credit exceeds the taxpayer’s tax liability in any one taxable year, the remaining portion of the credit may be carried forward until the total amount of the credit is used, except that no such tax credit shall be carried over for deduction after the 14th taxable year after the taxable year in which the first annual installment is allowed.
