The State's Utilities are mandated to produce a certain percentage of their power from renewable energy sources, including wind, geothermal, and solar, by the end of 2019.
The South Carolina Renewable Energy Commission is responsible to educate, and qualify, potential South Carolina homeowners about the numerous state net metering programs.
Your home was selected because of the amount of sunlight your home receives on the roof and geographical location in terms of power demand and proximity to power stations.
The homeowner will not be charged any out of pocket expense to make the switch to renewable energy and the system may add equity to the property. Homes will also be protected from upcoming rate increases.
Homes that qualify for the program can reduce their utility bill by up to 80% and Homeowners are eligible to receive $5,000-$15,000 on their taxes returns due to Federal and State Renewable Energy Credits (SREC).
DISCLAIMER: Space is limited for these programs and an interconnection application must be submitted to your utility to know if your home qualifies. SCREC will assist homeowners with submitting an application. Simply receiving a notice does not mean your home is qualified.
*UPDATE* This program as been reinforced and reactivated by The CLEAN ENERGY ACCESS ACT 336 (2019) due to rising utility cost associated with the failed, $8,000,000,000 nuclear plant in Genkinsville, SC.
