    Now that I think about it, the Massachusetts credit for solar panels is held back for the first year until the can see the first year's production data. So this way they can see that the installed systems are actually delivering the power to the grid and not just sitting idle.

    It is amazing the system is so relaxed. It is really an honor system. As best I can tell, the solar energy tax credits (solar electric, solar hot water, etc) are run in the same way. If you say you installed solar PV, the government takes you at your word.
