Charlotte FAQs

Yes, solar panels are worth it in Charlotte because the city sees about 214 total days with sun annually. This makes solar a profitable investment — one of its many benefits. Enjoy increased energy independence, lower electric bills, a higher home resale price and a reduced carbon footprint.

Charlotte residents are eligible for federal solar incentives, including the federal solar investment tax credit (ITC). In August 2022, Congress passed an extension of the ITC. This extension raises the credit from 26% to 30% if you installed or will install your solar system between 2020 and 2032.

Residents can also take advantage of city- and state-based solar rebates and incentives.

Charlotte is a great city to go solar! The city sees about 214 sunny days per year — higher than the national average. Charlotte residents can also apply for a number of rebates and incentives to offset the immediate and long-term costs of going solar

An 8-KW solar system is typically sufficient for a 2,000 sq ft home’s electricity needs. Purchasing a system of this size from solar panel company Freedom Solar will give you 24 SunPower solar panels

Panel size varies depending on the brand, but the average solar system requires at least 20 solar panels.

Yes, solar panels increase your home’s resale value! According to Zillow, homes with solar power sell for 4.1% more. Compared to most other home improvement projects, installing a solar system on your home leads to a higher return on investment (ROI). 

Yes, they do! But the amount depends on how much energy your system can produce. 

In general, locations that receive more sun on average have higher energy outputs. This leads to lower dependence on the grid — and thus lower monthly electricity bills.

Solar panels add value to your home, so they may affect your home insurance. You should double-check that your policy covers solar panels (policies typically do) and review the instances under which your insurance provider covers damages. You may need to increase your policy to cover them.

Home Battery Backup Systems

Backup power is a system that connects to electricity sources, typically solar panels and the electric grid, to store excess power and return it to your home when you need it, generally because of a power outage during an emergency. In most cases, your backup power supply will come from a generator or a battery. Today’s solar batteries are also intelligent energy management systems that can optimize your home’s energy usage to take advantage of utility time-of-use plans or to ensure that your electric car is charged with solar power.
