SunSense Solar PV Program

SunSense Solar Power

Important Update: The SunSense Residential Solar PV program is fully subscribed for 2015. Please monitor this SunSense webpage for future updates.

When you add solar photovoltaic (PV) panels to your home, you can generate clean, renewable electricity any time the sun is shining. And if you qualify for our SunSense Solar PV program Duke Energy will help reduce the cost of installation with a rebate of $2 per watt installed (for up to 10 kW). The SunSense Solar PV program:

  • Provides rebates of up to $20,000 from Duke Energy
  • Reduces your electric bills
  • Adds to the value of your home
  • Provides the satisfaction of generating clean, renewable energy

How to qualify for a solar PV rebate

Duke Energy has allocated $1.9 million towards the 2015 residential PV program for customers wishing to install a PV system and qualify for a rebate. Please note:

  • Reservations will be issued on a first-come basis and only for correctly completed applications.
  • A reservation does not guarantee that a rebate will be awarded, only that funding for a rebate is available should the system be installed, meet all requirements and pass inspection.

How to get started

Start by contacting solar contractors in your area to evaluate your home's site potential for generating solar energy. It's always a good idea to secure quotes from several contractors. 

If you decide to proceed and plan to apply for the Duke Energy rebate, review the information on the Requirements tab and follow the steps outlined in the Application Process tab.

It is important to note that to qualify for the incentive, installation of your PV system should not begin prior to receiving approval from Duke Energy.
