Installing Charleston Solar Panels
If you’re looking for a place with a rich history, look no further than Charleston, South Carolina. On that note, Charleston is now making history with the remarkable growth of the solar industry because residents in Charleston are experiencing huge savings from their high electric bills. Charleston’s coastal location, and a town of many ‘firsts’ in the United States, make it a great place to make the switch to solar panels.
With over 210 sunny days a year, solar panels in Charleston can turn sunshine into savings. Powering your home with clean energy keeps South Carolina environmentally friendly and clean, even while saving. Homeowners in Charleston can take advantage of the generous state and federal tax incentives to make going solar easy and affordable. And you’ll get to save money each month thanks to your solar energy system. With Sunpro Solar’s 25 year Labor Warranties and Production Guarantees, plus incentives like net metering, the 26% Federal Solar Tax Credit, and the 25% South Carolina Tax Credit, there’s no better time to get Charleston solar panels than right now.

26% Federal Solar Tax Credit
If you’d like to get solar panels in Charleston, be sure to take a look at this. Everyone is starting to catch on just how great renewable energy is, including the government. The federal government, wanting to encourage people to switch to renewable energy, is offering this tax credit. It’s called the Federal Solar Tax Credit, or the Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC for short). With it, those who go solar can receive up to 26% of the total cost back in tax credits. Furthermore, any remaining credits that you don’t use will be rolled over to the next year.
Keep in mind though that the tax credit will be slowly reduced over the next couple of years. It’s reduced to 22% in 2021, and will be phased out for residences in 2022. So be sure to move quickly if you’d like to take advantage of this incentive and get Charleston solar panels.
25% South Carolina State Tax Credit
The state of South Carolina has an amazing incentive available for its residents who want to purchase a solar array. Like the ITC, this incentive allows you to receive some of the cost of your solar panels back in tax credits. This one is state based, and you can get up to 25% back. The maximum amount of credit that you can apply in a single tax year is $3,500, or 50% of your state tax liability. You may apply it to whichever is the lesser amount.
With the ITC, and the state tax credit, you could save a lot when purchasing your Charleston solar panels. And like the ITC, the credits from this tax incentive also roll over to the next year if unused. A chance to get 51% off an investment is pretty hard to find out there. Take advantage of this one, and get your Charleston solar panels today!
Charleston Solar Net Metering
To encourage people to switch to renewable energy, some electric utility companies will offer net metering, or power performance payments. With net metering, any extra energy your solar panels produce is sent to your electric company’s grid. Your account is credited for the power the company receives. This gives you extra monthly savings thanks to your Charleston solar system.
Dominion Energy (formerly South Carolina Electric and Gas Company) offers net metering to its customers. This program has capacity up to 2% of their peak capacity. Currently Dominion Energy has reached their max capacity, and is currently closed to new applicants. Below are the requirements needed for application upon the re-opening of the project.
