Why Solar Might Be The New Columbia Yellow Gold
Have you heard of Columbia’s climate action campaign (CPAC)? The city is on a mission, encouraging all Columbians to improve the local environment through conservation and clean energy. Columbia touts an impressive goal “to power [the] city with 100% renewable power by 2036.” This example of green energy efficiency has motivated locals all over the city and surrounding area to go solar. Residential solar panels help protect the natural beauty of Columbia, but it’s the utility savings that are driving more and more Columbians to the new Yellow Gold of the sun.
As of January 1st, Duke Energy is offering a $.60/watt residential solar rebate to Columbia residents. Depending on the size of your solar panel system you can expect to receive a rebate amount between $4800 and $6000 dollars from Duke. Columbians also enjoy a 30% federal tax credit plus a 25% South Carolina state tax credit. Installing solar in Columbia has become a serious no-brainer. These credits/rebates, along with a 55% drop in equipment costs over the last 5 years, make solar systems affordable and give you energy independence.
Blue Raven Solar is proud to be part of an effort to install 1,571 MW of solar in South Carolina over the next 5 years. But what gets us most is excited is seeing Columbians, like you, begin saving big on utility bills. Solar has become the new Columbia Yellow Gold that frees your cash to do more of what you enjoy. Whether it’s a stroll in the park, a night at the Colonial Life Arena, traveling, or just spending more time with family… solar panels give you options.
