Solar power in Moncks Corner, South Carolina
Berkeley Electric Coop offer their solar customers an excellent net metering program in Moncks Corner.
South Carolina offers a state tax credit of 50% of your state tax liability up to $3,500 to be claimed as a tax deduction for installing solar.
After factoring in the state tax credit you may claim a large portion of the remaining cost — 26% in 2020, and 22% in 2021 — as a deduction to federal taxes. The federal solar tax credit can be spread over several years and will always cover the set percentage, regardless of system size.
Utilities are fighting a hard battle to end net metering, no good will come from waiting!
Net Metering Broken Down
Under net metering excess solar generation is sent to the grid and retail value per kWh is provided. After covering the cost of power drawn from the grid at later times you receive credit that may be applied to future bills within the same 12 month billing cycle. If at the end of the 12 months credit remains then Berkeley Electric will deposit the money into your account.
