SOLAR SAVINGS IN NORTH CAROLINA

Here at Blue Raven Solar, we know that deciding whether a solar system is right for your home usually involves a lot of number crunching and research. Finding each individual rebate or net metering policy for your specific state and city can cost you time and cause a lot of frustration (as many sources are outdated and inaccurate). We’re here to help you decide whether or not solar is a worthwhile investment for your home and situation, not just to sell you solar panels.

 

North Carolina receives more than the average national sunlight, and its hot summers and moderate winters make the Tar Heel State a great candidate for solar energy. In fact, the solar industry has grown pretty quickly in North Carolina thanks to local and federal incentives. With about 6.5 MW installed, or enough solar to power almost 800,000 homes at the end of 2019, North Carolina is one of the leaders in the nation for solar and continues to grow.

 

Now that we see North Carolina is a great place to consider residential solar, let’s take a dive into what incentives drive homeowners in the Tar Heel State to go solar:

NET METERING

The three largest electric utilities in North Carolina are required to provide full retail rate net metering to their customers. This means that homeowners with solar can sell back their excess electricity at full value to generate credits for future month’s utility bills. All unused credits get transferred to these utility companies without compensation at the beginning of each summer.

SOLAR REBATES

Duke Energy offers homeowners $0.60/watt for systems up to 10 kilowatts, meaning that solar customers can save up to $6,000. This rebate is one of the best in the nation and has influenced many homeowners to make the switch to solar.

BUILDING PERMIT REBATE

Solar system owners in North Carolina are eligible for a rebate on the cost of the building permit when installing solar.

PROPERTY TAX EXEMPTION

By putting solar on a roof, the value of a home increases immediately. Unfortunately, this means that homeowners will experience an increase in property tax. Luckily, North Carolina allows 80% of this increase in home value to be exempt from property tax.
