K2 Systems promotes U.S. production of CrossRail, MiniRail solar systems

K2 CrossRail

K2 Systems says two of its residential rooftop solar mounting and racking products (one of which is new) will be manufactured in the United States and meets the Inflation Reduction Act’s (IRA) domestic content standards in Q3 2024: the CrossRail System and the MiniRail Comp System (new).

The IRA Domestic Content Adder bumps the 30% Investment Tax Credit to 40%. How to earn the domestic content adder is still complex, but the short answer is: 40% of a solar PV system’s components must be sources from the U.S. to qualify for the 10% domestic content bonus. Solar modules and cells make up a large portion of that PV system total, but in rooftop solar, every little bit will help.

“K2 Systems remains committed to expanding its product line to support the solar industry’s transition to increased domestic production,’ the company noted in its announcement. “Our goal is to ensure customers can maximize their eligibility for tax credits and bonuses while fostering American manufacturing growth. You can be confident that more K2 Systems products are being transitioned to U.S. manufacturing to meet these standards.”
