Solar power in Little Rock, Arkansas
Entergy Arkansas offers its Little Rock customers a net metering program. Entergy will provide credit for any excess generation a customer’s solar system generates. The net metering credits are equal to 1 kilowatt hour of energy that are applied to the customer’s next bill in order to offset future electricity usage. If the customer has credits in their account that are over 2 years old, they can sell them back to the utility for cash at the avoided cost rate. However, you, as the customer, will end up saving more money by keeping the credits and having them apply to future bills since the credits are worth the retail rate of electricity.
Little Rock residents can also take advantage of the federal solar tax credit. The tax credit is equal to 30% of the cost of a solar system and is applied to your federal income taxes. In some cases, you may be able to wipe out your entire tax bill for the year! The combination of the federal tax credit and Entergy’s net metering program can provide you with an excellent return on investment on a solar system installation in Arkansas!
