Solar Panel Installation Durham, NC

Durham, also known as Bull City, is known for its magnificent skyline, the bustling Brightleaf square, and home to Duke University. Durham, the city of Medicine, is also part of the North Carolina Research Triangle, which is a national leader in both health care and research. It’s a place where people are on top of new developments and advancements, so it’s no wonder why in Durham, solar panels are becoming so common.

Why Go Solar in Durham, North Carolina?

Renewable energy like solar power is rapidly growing all over the nation. Aside from keeping the environment healthy and clean, solar panels also increase your savings each month due to the reduced utility bill. That’s especially true for Durham solar panels as the city sees over 200 sunny days a year. Switching to solar is easier than ever with these great incentives: Free Solar Quote


26% Federal Solar Tax Credit

A great way to get a solar energy system is to take advantage of the federal solar tax credit, also called the Solar Investment Tax Credit, or ITC. When you use this incentive, you can get 26% of the total cost of your solar panels, including installation, back in tax credits. So, if your solar panels cost you $11,000, you’d get $2,860 back in tax credits, which would reduce the cost down to $8,140. That’s a pretty good deal.

To use this tax credit toward your solar installation, there isn’t a better time to act. When you decide to go solar in Durham, take advantage of the 26% tax credit through the end of 2022. Starting January 1, 2023, the Solar Federal Tax Credit for homeowners with solar power will drop to 22% in 2023.

Net Metering for Durham Solar Panels

Another great way to get the most out of your solar panels is with net metering. It works like this- when your solar panels produce more electricity than your home needs, that excess energy is sent to your utility company’s grid. Your utility company then credits your account for the electricity that they receive from your company.

Currently, net metering is available throughout North Carolina, including Durham. We’ve listed an overview of the requirements below. Please note that Sunpro Solar handles the entire net metering process on your behalf. The requirements are simply listed below for your information.
