For USA folks, Im going to install a 14 ft by 8 ft gazebo in the back yard to house the solar panel for an off-grid setup to power a few things. I have a person who does my taxes and I will ask him as well but I wanted to get opinions from this forum as well. Can I claim the addition of the gazebo on the solar tax credits ?

My understanding is structural components like a gazebo don’t qualify for the credit.

Instead of a gazebo, why not build a 14x8 ground mount structure? You might later notice that it also makes a nice shelter from sun and/or rain.

I have limited space in the backyard. Also Im under HOA and want to make sure it looks good for approval.
