Solar customers in South Carolina can claim a 25% solar state tax credit on installation costs. Tax incentives are a major reason why there has already been over 1,781 megawatts (MW) of solar energy installed in South Carolina.

SC Solar Tax Credits

South Carolina offers one of the best state solar tax credits in the nation. In addition, there is the Federal Solar Tax Credit, that all should take advantage of. Combined, these two solar tax credits can help decrease your cost of installing solar in South Carolina.

SC Solar Rebates

On top of the 25% South Carolina solar tax credit, there are more solar incentives you can receive when you install solar in SC.

State Tax Credit

When you go solar in South Carolina, you may be able to cut your cost by a quarter when you take advantage of the 25% solar tax credit.

Unlike other states, you can carry the value of the credit over 10 years of filing taxes, to ensure you get it all back regardless of how much you pay in annual taxes.

Santee Cooper Solar Rebate

Similar to the South Carolina’s Duke Energy rebate, customers of Santee Cooper can get $1.30 back per watt of solar energy installed. However, this rebate caps at $5,200. 

Federal Solar Tax Credit (ITC)

The Federal Solar Tax Credit is 26 percent for construction started before until Dec. 31, 2022.

Similar to other solar tax credits, with the ITC you can deduct 26% of the cost of your solar energy system from your federal taxes.

In 2023, the solar ITC drops to 22%.

Net Metering

Many utility companies in South Carolina also offer net metering which allows you to earn credits on your electric bill on days when your system produces more energy than you use. You can use those credits on days when your system produces less than what you need (can happen in wintertime some). 

Duke Energy and Dominion Energy in South Carolina offer net metering for solar energy.
