Net metering is applicable to all South Carolina residents. Every residential solar owner is entitled to credits for excess energy production. Those credits will be applied to the homeowner’s next utility bill and if there are excess credits at the end of the year, homeowners receive compensation.
South Carolina is one of the few states to offer state tax credits for going solar. The tax credit covers 25% of the cost of your solar system and can be carried over for up to ten years if you don’t pay enough in taxes in any one year.
By owning your own solar system, you qualify for tax deductions from the government. In 2020, the government lets owners deduct 26% of the cost of installing a rooftop solar-electric generator, including the cost of any necessary remodeling or retrofitting work associated with the solar installation, from your federal income taxes. Thus, if you were to spend $10,000 dollars on your system, you will receive a $2,600 tax credit. As an added bonus, many states allow for households with solar units to qualify for a deduction on their state income taxes as well.
As solar power becomes more popular, these incentives will likely disappear. Thus, there is no better time to go solar than the year 2021.

At Blue Raven this is the heart of what we believe: our nation’s current power generation is not sustainable. As a nation, we still get over 67% of our electricity from the burning of fossil fuels.
Regardless if one believes in global warming or not, we can all agree that the toxic pollution that these carbon-based energy sources spew into the atmosphere is not a good thing. The simple test is this: would you like your family to live next to a coal-fired power plant?
Standard electricity is produced from fuels like coal, oil, and natural gas. When burned, these fuels emit chemical gases causing pollution and harm to our environment. Fossil fuels are not only destructive to the environment, but they are also a limited resource. Solar electricity is by far one of the cleanest forms of energy.
