Have We Got a Deal for You
Yes Solar Solutions has a special deal for you to buy a solar lottery ticket for the Duke Energy Solar Rebate. This way you can get a chance to win the rebate without spending money now to invest in solar. If the rebate would be an important part of your decision to go solar (up to $4,000), let us set you up to apply without your having to buy solar now. 2022 is the last year of the Duke Energy Solar Rebate.
How It Works
By now, most Duke Energy customers know the solar rebate has become a lottery, with applications twice a year. The upside, is that it is no longer first-come-first-served, dependent on who applied in the first few minutes of the application period. Now everyone applying has the same chance if they apply during the week-long window of January 5 through January 12 of 2022. The downside is that with two application periods a year now, in January and July, the amount of rebate is spread more thinly. So, it is a lottery in every sense of the word. But… you can buy a ticket!
Yes Solar can submit the design plan and interconnection request to Duke on your behalf for a few hundred dollars, and provide you with your Duke ID number and all the instructions for how to apply for the rebate. If you do receive the rebate you can decide at that time whether to go ahead with your project. There are some excellent reasons to go forward too, even if you don’t get the rebate or get on the waiting list.
Why Go Solar
We have all heard about the ever-decreasing cost of solar. But it seems to have leveled, and even increased, depending on the brand, on the country of origin, on the shortage of raw materials, on shipping, trucking, etc. It is a very volatile market and expected to be so for the foreseeable future with COVID ransacking the countries that provide materials and manufacturing. The specter of inflation adds to the uncertainty. The other cost looming is that of climate change. There is little dispute now that climate disasters affect the cost of energy. And energy rates are unlikely to decrease. You can actually freeze your cost of energy by installing solar now and it will never increase again.
The Easiest Way to Go Solar
If you haven’t heard, the 26% federal tax credit has been extended through 2022, but it will be the last year (unless something changes). If you don’t have the cash to pay for solar upfront, or you would rather take your time, you can have the benefit of solar for the next year and a half without paying anything. Yes Solar can install your solar system in the first quarter of 2022 with an 18-month same-as-cash option, and you can enjoy all the benefits of solar for a year and a half, and pay for solar after you get the 26% tax credit in 2023.
And if yours is the winning ticket to the lottery, so much the better! If you do win the rebate, your system will have to be installed by June 15 of 2022. Recent meter holds by Duke Energy have slowed installations, so the sooner the better to avoid losing that rebate. Our installation schedule is more flexible in Q1, and it is the best time to get the best work from the best solar company at the best cost.
