Three Virginia bills to provide a 35 percent state income tax credit for nonresidential solar equipment in specific areas, including opportunity zones, failed to advance in the state Legislature. HB 2165 and HB 2460 each died in committee, while SB 1496 was changed in committee to a grant-funded program with no funding. After passing the state Senate, it was killed in a House subcommittee.
