New Year, New Rebate Program! Duke Energy is now accepting applications for the North Carolina 2019 Solar Rebate Program. The time to act is now, as this incentive program is first-come, first-served. Launched on January 2nd, Duke Energy is accepting residential, nonresidential, and nonprofit customer applications. This one-time Solar Rebate can save North Carolina residents up to $6,000 or $0.60 cents per watt of solar energy installed on a 10kW Solar Kit. A larger system may be installed, but this incentive is limited to up to 10kW AC for residential solar systems.

For the average home, a 10kW system is approximately the right size to eliminate that monthly power bill. For a state-of-the-art solar power system, payback on a typical home is about 2 years when you qualify for the Duke NC rebate and the Federal IRS tax credit. Whether you want solar panels at your home or business, this one-time rebate can help make going solar more affordable by offsetting the up-front cost of installation.
