According to the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIC), North Carolina ranks number two in the nation for solar power. In the past few years, the number of residents and corporations across North Carolina in places like Garner, NC and New Bern, NC that have installed solar power systems or have taken advantage of solar power incentives has risen. Not only are these solar power customers harvesting the sun to power homes and businesses, but they are earning state and federal tax incentives along the way. Based on data from the SEIC, over 7,000 jobs have been created in North Carolina because of the solar power industry.
Solar power systems are more affordable now than at any other time in U.S. history. Across the nation, the cost of installing solar power systems in homes has decreased about seventy percent. In North Carolina, that decrease is more than sixty percent in the last five years alone. There is enough solar power installed in North Carolina to power well over 300,000 homes, putting North Carolina only behind the state California as the nations solar power leader.
As time goes on, forecasters are expecting to see more of an increase in the number of residents and businesses that chose solar power as their main energy source. Solar power is one investment that will pay off, as evidenced by the data over the last couple of years. Whether you are a central North Carolina business in places like Raleigh or Garner, a coastal resident of Wilmington or New Bern, or a western Carolina resident in Boone or Asheville, investing in solar power is a good choice.
