South Carolina Solar Incentives

South Carolina Has the Best Solar Tax Incentives in the Southeast

South Carolina shows us what southern hospitality looks like when it comes to solar policy, and it’s just getting started. With one of the most forward-looking solar trends in the region, the future of South Carolina is looking extra bright. There’s plenty of tax credits and rebates to go around, but Sunrun can help you funnel them into solar savings from day one.

South Carolina Solar Incentives, Rebates, & Tax Credits

Solar Savings Types Value of Savings
Federal Solar Tax Credit  The 26% federal solar tax credit is available for home solar systems installed by December 31, 2020
Solar Panel Tax Credits 25% of total system cost

**Customer’s ability to monetize rebates, incentives and tax credits depends on several factors, including, without limitation, continued state subsidization of these policies, the applicable Sunrun product type, and whether a customer purchases or leases a solar system from Sunrun.

Solar tax incentives and rebates in South Carolina

South Carolina has one of the most generous solar tax credits in the region. You can enjoy a 25% state tax credit if you buy your own solar system.1 If you don’t pay enough in taxes to qualify for the full 25% credit, it’ll roll over into the next year. But there are other ways to save that don’t involve taxes when you go solar in South Carolina.

In addition to South Carolina’s state solar tax credits, you’d also be eligible for the  federal solar tax credit, if you buy your own solar system outright. The federal solar tax credit gives you a dollar-for-dollar reduction against your federal income tax. The 26% tax credit applies as long as the solar energy system is installed by December 31, 2020. Starting in 2021, the value of the tax credit will step down to 22%. After 2021, the tax credit for residential solar ends.
