In North Carolina, for renewable energy property used for any purpose other than single-family residential purposes, the tax credit is equal to 35% of the cost of the system (including installation), $0.60/square foot for lighting retrofit projects, and $1.80/square foot for energy-efficient products installed during construction.

To see the full list of incentives in North Carolina, you can visit DSIRE, which is the Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiencies and click on your state.

In August 2008, North Carolina enacted legislation that exempts 80% of the appraised value of a “solar energy electric system” (also known as a photovoltaic, or PV, system) from property tax. For the purposes of this assessment, the term “solar energy electric system” means “all equipment used directly and exclusively for the conversion of solar energy to electricity.” This incentive is effective for taxable years beginning on or after July 1, 2008.

In addition to these and other programs, North Carolina’s Energy Improvement Loan Program (EILP) is available to businesses, local governments, public schools, community colleges, and nonprofit organizations for projects that include energy efficiency improvements and renewable energy systems. Loans with an interest rate of 1% are available for certain renewable-energy and energy-recycling projects. Eligible renewable-energy projects generally include solar, wind, small hydropower (less than 20 megawatts) and biomass. Loans with a rate of 3% are available for projects that demonstrate energy efficiency, energy cost savings or reduced energy demand. Energy conservation projects usually include improvements to HVAC systems, energy management controls, high efficiency lighting and building envelope improvements. Loans are secured by bank letter-of-credit (non-applicable for local governments and school systems).

In order to qualify for the EILP, a project must (1) be located in North Carolina; (2) demonstrate energy efficiency, use of renewable-energy resources, energy cost savings or reduced energy demand; (3) use existing, reliable, commercially-available technologies; (4) meet federal and state air and water-quality standards; and (5) be able to recover capital costs within the loan’s maximum term of 10 years through energy cost savings. Note that letter-of-credit fees do not apply to government agencies and public schools.
