Why Go Solar in Wilmington?

Free Solar QuoteWilmington, North Carolina is just the place where solar energy is welcome. Thanks, in large part, to the amount of local and statewide economic incentives to get clean, renewable energy to more Wilmington homeowners.

Like any cost-conscious homeowner interested in going solar, you want your solar power to increase the value of your home, reduce your electric bill and give you more control over the amount of energy you use.

There are a number of exemptions, incentive programs and financial credits available for homeowners in Wilmington who make the switch to solar.

Here are a few of those credits and programs at a glance:

  • Property Tax Exemption —Solar panels will not only add value to your home but, in Wilmington, they also won’t increase your property taxes. That’s because of a Property Tax Exemption which means the value that solar adds to a property isn’t included in property tax assessments.
  • Utility Rebate Programs — Homeowners in Wilmington who are also customers of Duke Energy Progress can receive a rebate up to $6,000 to be applied to the cost of their solar panels. It’s the utility’s way of making your solar switch easy.
  • Solar Tax Credit —Receive a 26% Federal Tax Credit from the United States government toward the entire cost of your solar panel installation as well as the inclusion of a backup battery in your system.
  • Net Metering — Sometimes your solar panels will produce more electricity than your home will need. Net metering sends excess energy to your utility company’s grid. The utility will credit your account for the electricity they receive, and decrease your monthly even more.

Wilmington Property Tax Exemption

solar panels wilmington ncMany homeowners know about solar power’s ability to reduce or eliminate electricity bills, but few know how going solar impacts their property value.

In Wilmington, solar installation will improve your home’s value but there is also a massive property tax exemption that makes the investment in solar worth even more.

Residential solar systems are exempt from property tax assessments to the tune of 100% of the appraised value of the total system.

Rather than seeing the increase in home value appear on your property taxes, you won’t see your home solar system appear on your property taxes at all!

Thanks to the local and state governments in North Carolina and, more specifically, Wilmington, you can get that added value without any added costs.

I rarely write reviews but definitely had to for the great service I received. From my sales guy Shawn Williams being upfront, honest, and knowledgeable to Matthew Bass making the whole experience smooth sailing and hassle free by making sure everything was taken care of. As a bonus, even the electrician Dale Rogers was very nice and even referred me over to someone who could visually design and transform my backyard. When I tell you my whole experience was the best I have ever had with any type of company I have dealt with, it truly is an understatement. I will definitely be referring everyone to Sunpro. Thanks again for my solar!!!
