Cost of Solar Panels in Columbia

The cost of getting solar installed in your home is based on a few factors such as energy consumption, sunlight exposure, equipment, labor, and available solar incentives. The various factors involved make it difficult to give a one-size-fits-all price for every Columbia home.

26% Federal Solar Tax Credit

Everyone is starting to catch on to just how great renewable energy is, including the government. The federal government, wanting to encourage people to switch to renewable energy, is offering a tax credit called the Federal Solar Tax Credit, or the Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC for short). 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.

When you decide to go solar in Columbia, take advantage of the 26% tax credit through the end of 2022. The Solar Federal Tax Credit for homeowners with solar power will drop to 22% in 2023.

25% South Carolina State Tax Credit

If you own a home in Columbia, 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 solar. 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 solar panels installed today!

Columbia South Carolina 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 solar system.

Dominion Energy (formerly South Carolina Electric and Gas Company) offers net metering to its customers. This program has a capacity up to 2% of its peak capacity. Currently, Dominion Energy has reached its max capacity and is currently closed to new applicants. Below are the requirements needed for application upon the re-opening of the project.
