Durham Solar Power FAQs

  • Two direct factors that affect the price of solar arrays are installation costs and solar system sizes. The median cost in North Carolina for a solar array is $4.63 per watt. A standard 7 kW panel would then cost just under $23,000 after factoring in the federal tax credit.

  • Solar power  is popular because it can offer long-term savings. You could save nearly $7,000 over 20 years with solar based on North Carolina’s average electric rate, the 30% tax credit, and median state costs. Energy prices also typically rise with time, meaning your electricity bill savings could gradually increase.

  • You can connect with a trusted solar installer near you by filling out the form on this page. SaveOnEnergy partners with local installers that are ready to help interested homeowners. The installer can then help you understand financing options and determine the proper array size and type for your home.

  • If you want to cut back your carbon footprint, installing solar is a direct way to do so. Solar power does not emit carbon dioxide, unlike oil or coil.
