South Carolina offers a number of appealing incentives to residents that install a solar panel system.
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.
Find up-to-date information on South Carolina solar incentives and clean energy tax credits at the DSIRE program page for SC. (DSIRE is the Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency®.)
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.
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.
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.
