Solar in South Carolina
Solar in South Carolina
Solar in South Carolina is possible with a 25% State tax credit for customers who live and work in SC – and programs for net metering that promote residential solar by giving customers full retail value back for solar energy sent to the grid on really sunny days – the Palmetto State is a hotbed of new solar installations. Match this with the current Federal ITC program at 26% and South Carolinian’s can save up to 51% on the cost of their solar install for their home.
Renu Energy Solutions serves both residential and commercial customers in South Carolina, offering solar electric, battery storage and energy efficient products such as programmable thermostats and solar attic ventilation fans, to permanently reduce your utility bills.
How Has Solar Impacted South Carolina?
South Carolina has emerged as a superpower in the world of solar — it’s the perfect place to convert to renewable energy and the state is reaping the benefits.
The solar industry brings in over $58 million in state and federal taxes annually from South Carolinians and has provided at least 7,250 jobs. When you go solar, you are not only reducing your carbon footprint and saving money on your utility bill, you are also helping to boost your local economy.
Will My HOA Let Me Go Solar in South Carolina?
South Carolina is a state where homeowners associations are allowed to restrict solar installations, so always check with your HOA before you put panels on your house. In many cases, there are ways to obtain local building permits to work around the restrictions and gain permission from your neighborhood’s HOA, so always weigh your options before giving up on going solar!

Frequently Asked Questions About Solar For Your Home
How exactly does going solar and a solar system itself work?
How many solar panels do I need for my home?
Roof-size/available space: When we look at the size of your roof and the space available, we gather data that tell us the maximum number of solar panels your home or site can hold and we even consider shading. We use a software “Suneye” which takes a 360 picture of your roof and we use this photo to determine if your home is a good candidate for solar.
Energy Usage: When we determine energy usage we look at your past electrical bills from over the course of a year to make sure your system isn’t too big or too small.
Your Budget: We take your budget seriously and most importantly, we want you to be satisfied with our services. We take your feedback on how much you want to spend so that we can size your system appropriately.

Curious about the cost of a home solar system?
When our clients ask this question, we immediately tell them about the federal tax credit that comes with going solar: it allows you to increase your tax refund, or decrease the amount of taxes you owe on your system.
The federal tax credit is currently at 26% and will remain at that number through the end of 2022, giving you plenty of time to take advantage of the savings! For example, if the total cost of you system was $22,000, when you subtract 26% you are then left with a $16,280 solar system. There is not set price for a home going solar as there are many factors that contribute to the total cost. The price of a solar home can range from $10k to $100k based on the size of your roof, energy usage, aesthetic preferences, and of course, budget.
Home Solar System
The amount of electricity that a solar energy system will produce will depend on a number of factors, including the location of the home, system design, and much more. Ideally, a home with an unobstructed south-facing view will produce more than enough energy.
Installing battery backup along with your solar energy system for home or business is a smart move and can increase the value of your clean energy investment as well as peace of mind when a grid outage occur.
Electric cars – with no gas engine at all – now work for most budgets and lifestyles. With more and more models to choose from, drivers are choosing electric vehicles (or EVs) than ever before!
