Solar power in Simpsonville, South Carolina
Duke energy and Laurens Electric coop both offer a very similar net metering policy. This agreement with your utility credits excess solar generation sent to the grid at the retail value for power. When more power is exported than drawn credit is still given at the retail rate to future bills within the same 12 month billing cycle. Remaining credit at the end of the 12 months is deposited into your account.
There is a 25% tax credit up to $3,500 or 50% of your state tax liability whichever one is the least. After subtracting all other incentives 30% of the remaining cost may be claimed as a deduction to federal taxes. The federal solar tax credit can be spread over several years and always covers 30% no matter the system size or cost. Incentives like these make solar an obvious choice for a home investment.
