Find out how much you can save by going solar in the Tar Heel State

Want to lead North Carolina's transition to solar energy?

Who needs the electricity of a Duke vs. UNC matchup when you can energize your home with the power of the sun?

As demonstrated with the first manned flight in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina has always been a state of innovators. From the Blue Ridge Mountains to the beaches of the Outer Banks, North Carolinians have continued that pioneering spirit by adopting solar at a rapid pace. In fact, in 2014 North Carolina installed more solar electric capacity than 48 other states!

Although 2015 ended without the extension of the state tax credit, residents are still eligible for the Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC). This means that you can still realize substantial savings through solar ownership by deducting 26% of your system's price tag from your federal tax liability. Net Metering Programs are also available in most areas, whereby the utility company will credit you for any excess power generated by your solar system.

Like a smile on Cam Newton's face, let us brighten your day and help you go solar with Dividend Finance.

The savings potential from going solar in North Carolina can easily become a reality for you. Aside from saving money on your monthly electric bill, the other key incentive that helps solar ownership in North Carolina make sense is the federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) available in all 50 states*. This credit, which is equal to 26% of your system cost, is applied to the federal taxes you owe each year, thereby lowering the net cost of your solar system. The ITC is a great benefit of going solar: money that you would otherwise pay in taxes can now be used to own your solar system sooner. It is important to note that you can only reap the benefits of the federal ITC if you own your system directly - it is not available to homeowners who opt for a third-party ownership model, such as a Solar Lease or Power Purchase Agreement. With a Dividend Finance solar loan, you own your system and you get all of the economic benefits of going solar in North Carolina.
