Our one-piece curbframe and flashing design cuts 90 minute installation to 30 minutes!* Plus, Wasco E–Class skylights deliver up to 46% more daylight!** Our E–Class self-flashing skylights sit directly on the roof deck, giving you a larger glass area per rough opening compared to competitor. Backed by a 10 Year Leak Free Warranty.

The EVMS model is available in standard and custom sizes, with a wide range of accessories, glazings and finish color options.

Wasco’s E-Class skylights feature condensation control without the use of weep holes for maximum energy efficiency. Wasco’s thermally broken vinyl curb frame incorporates a large condensation that channel collects condensation until it can naturally evaporate, eliminating the need for drainage weep holes that allow outside air to pass through the curb, diminishing the energy efficiency of the skylight.

Wasco E-Class self-flashing skylights are for use with thin roofing materials such as composition, slate or wood shingles and shakes up to 3/4″ thick. All E-Class models require a minimum 3:12 roof pitch. A Metal Roof Adapter is available for low profile 1″ standing seam metal roofs with a minimum 4:12 pitch. Standard size models fit 16″ and 24″ on-center roof rafters.

Guide to Receive Your Federal Tax Credit

Background

Solar Powered Motorized Venting SkylightUnder two laws – the Emergency Stabilization Act of 2008 and American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) – Wasco Solar Powered Model EVMS qualify under “Solar Electric Property” expenditures when purchased and installed from January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2019 (26% in 2020, 22% in 2021). This tax credit is a direct debit of the taxpayers total tax liability. The combined effect of these two laws provides a 30% Tax Credit on both the purchase and installation of qualifying products in renewable technologies such as; Solar Electric Property, Residential Solar Water Heating, Qualified small wind energy and qualified Geothermal Heat pump energy as well as others.

 

What You Should Do

After Installation

  • Keep your receipts for total price paid (invoice from contractor for product and installation) of the qualifying Wasco products.
  • Attach receipts to a completed Manufacturers Certification Statement1 and keep for your records (Download Statement).

When Filing Your Taxes

  • Fill out the IRS Residential Energy Efficient Property Credit tax form 5695 (under “Qualified solar electric property cost”)
  • Submit it with your taxes. Enter this tax credit off of form 5695 on your IRS tax form 10402 (tax forms can be found at www.irs.gov).

1 IRS Notice 2009-41 suggests the taxpayer is not required to attach this certification statement to their tax return. However, the taxpayer should retain this certification statement as part of their tax records.
2 As in all tax matters, the taxpayer is advised to consult their tax professional. Wasco Products, Inc. assumes no liability regarding the homeowner’s ability to obtain tax credits.
