The Tar Heel State is Going Solar!
The Old North State is Becoming the New Solar State
North Carolina Homeowners are Switching to Solar (With $0 Up Front!)
Solar is more popular than ever in the Tar Heel state thanks to a long-overdue 2017 law authorizing solar leasing, allowing homeowners more opportunity to move to solar energy. This is on the heels of North Carolina getting a big kickstart in 2007, when the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Portfolio Standard (REPS) (Senate Bill 3) was passed, requiring all investor-owned utilities in the state to supply 12.5% to start moving toward new energy sources.

Florida has enough solar installed to power 453,837 homes—with the Martin Next Generation Solar Energy Center producing enough power to supply over 8,216 Florida homes (75 MW)! Considering prices have fallen 38% over the last 5 years, The Sunshine State may just become The Solar State.

Rebates & Incentives
Normally, when you add value to your house, your property tax bills increase—not so with solar! Thanks to North Carolina's property tax exclusion, all solar homeowners who are using their systems for residential purposes won't see their property taxes increase in relation to the value of their solar system.
Proudly Serving North Carolina Homeowners
The North Carolina Utilities Commission (NCUC) established net metering rules for the state’s three investor-owned utilities (Duke Energy, Progress Energy, and Dominion North Carolina Power) in 2005. Net metering credits you for the extra electricity your system produces, allowing you to use those credits when your system doesn’t generate enough power.
