NC Solar Rebate Program

Duke Energy has launched a 2018 solar rebate program in North Carolina that makes installing solar panels for your home or business a better investment than ever before.

New Solar Rebate from Duke Energy

North Carolina homeowners, businesses, and non-profits who install solar panels in 2018 are eligible for a rebate from Duke Energy. The new solar rebate significantly reduces the net cost of a solar installation making clean energy more affordable than ever before.

  • Homeowners can save 40%-50% on the cost of a solar system when they combine the Duke Energy solar rebate with the federal tax credit for solar.
  • Businesses can achieve even bigger savings–more than 70% off the cost of a solar system.

Check our summary of the rebate below and read what Bob Kingery (co-founder/CEO of Southern Energy Management) had to say about the rebate in the Charlotte Business Journal.
