Any North Carolina Resident has the option of installing solar electric panels, and low cost solar alternatives on their houses. The North Carolina Solar Tax Credit aims to make it so much easier! In North Carolina, panels installed on east or west facing roofs receive about 85 percent as much solar energy as a south-facing roof. This means cheaper electricity and up to 35% back on your solar system. The panel installation may be tempting to do on your own to save money, but having a solar company install them with save you a headache in the long run. If they install them and have a problem, they will come back to fix it. If you install them and have a problem, you’re stuck unless you call a professional to help. A professional also knows exactly how to place the panels for optimal use, and will give you advice on cleaning and maintenance.

Solar for Ground Mounts on Farms


Your solar panel installation can be done on both your roof or by using ground mounts. A ground mounting system allows for the business or family to choose an optimal place on their property to get the most use out of the panels. The solar panels should always be installed by a solar company, and this will ensure the homeowner has a professional installation, along with a resource for any questions. These systems are easier to place because they are on open land and don’t require any additional drilling like you would see on a traditional roof mounted system. They are also easier to clean and maintain than a traditional setup. A ground system has a better range of motion, and this enables the buyer to get the perfect tilt for the most sun exposure. The cost for a ground mount system and a rooftop solar panel system are usually the same or a very close comparison, and most companies will offer both and let the buyer choose which option suits their needs.

As previously stated, it may be tempting to install the panels yourself to save a little money, however, if you have a company install them you know they’re done correctly, and set up for the optimal energy output. You should shop around and get quotes for businesses that service your area, so you get the best deal. Make sure you are very clear with your specifications, the type of system, and how large you want to install. This information will all help you get an accurate quote. The cost of the installation and the cost of solar panels will primarily depend on those factors that are listed above. A professional will come to your house and do a walkthrough to see how the panels will sit with your roof’s angle, and they may do a general walkthrough of your property to see if ground mounting is an option that will benefit you.

North Carolina Solar Panel Incentives and Tax Credits

North Carolina solar incentives are a big reason this state has been leading almost every other state for the most solar panels installed in residential properties and businesses. This state currently offers its residents a 35 percent tax credit for renewable energy property built, bought or leased by the taxpayer and put into service during the fiscal year. North Carolina also offers a corporate tax credit to businesses who install solar panels. The state will rebate up to 35 percent of the cost of an eligible renewable energy investment by a business. In early 2015, the North Carolina solar tax credit expiration went into effect and took away many incentives for homeowners to invest in solar energy. However, Congress passed and extension, and it is the NC solar tax credit 2017. This tax incentive will be in effect for five more years before it is up for an expiration once again.

Solar panels will continue to gain traction as more and more people learn about the incentives to install them. They will start looking at different companies and ask for more solar energy information as they become more vested in the idea of installing their own panels. Since there are a wide range of companies and options to choose from, people will start asking more questions as well as purchasing more systems.
