North Carolina homeowners: It's time to go solar!
As of January 1st, homeowners in Duke Energy Carolinas or Duke Energy Progress territory (Charlotte, Raleigh, Greensboro, Asheville, Fayetteville, Wilmington, etc.) have access to up to a $6,000 rebate to install a solar system, in addition to the 30% Federal Investment Tax Credit. The rebate is paid directly by the utility.
There's two BIG reasons to go solar in North Carolina now.
1. Homeowner rebates won't last long.
The rebate is 5 megawatts (MW) per utility territory, meaning Duke Energy Carolinas and Duke Energy Progress each have a 5MW limit. This is the equivalent of only 715 homeowners in each utility territory that will receive this rebate. Once the limit is reached, the rebate will go away. Don’t wait, act now and get the money you deserve back from the utility!
2. Your monthly bills are about to go up—again.
Both Duke Energy Carolinas and Duke Energy Progress are asking for substantial rate increases just in 2018. These rate increases are then passed on to Duke Energy customers. DEP is asking for an increase of $18/mo for an average customer. DEC is asking for $600 million. Go solar and fix your energy costs today!
