Solar incentives in South Carolina**

The South Carolina state credit is equal to 25% of solar installation cost, up to $3,500 per year or $35,000 total. Santee Cooper offers their customers a varying rebate according to system size. Many utility companies in South Carolina also offer net metering, which allows residential solar homeowners to be paid back for excess power that their systems produce and deliver to the larger power grid. All major investor-owned utilities are currently offering net metering to eligible customers.

South Carolina homeowners are also eligible for the Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC).*** The ITC allows you to deduct 26 percent of the cost of installing a solar energy system from your federal taxes.

Solar panels perform in all kinds of weather

Going solar is a big decision, and although there are many factors you should consider, local weather shouldn’t be a deterrent. Solar panels are designed to work in almost any type of weather… even snow and clouds!
