Bifacial Reversal on Solar Module Tariffs Exemption from 2022

Bifacial Reversal: What Does this Policy Change Mean for the Solar Industry

In a significant policy shift, the Biden administration has reinstated tariffs on imported bifacial solar panels, reversing a two-year exemption. This move, driven by domestic manufacturers’ concerns over surging imports, aims to bolster U.S. solar manufacturing. Previously exempt due to limited domestic production, bifacial panels have dominated imports, prompting the change. The decision aligns with Biden’s broader strategy to support local industry through the Inflation Reduction Act. While pre-existing contracts are temporarily protected, the overall impact is expected to reshape market dynamics and support domestic growth.

Capitalize on 2024 Solar Tax Credits and Incentives in North Carolina
With the recent reinstatement of tariffs on bifacial solar panels, the cost dynamics in the solar industry are shifting. However, there’s a silver lining for North Carolina residents looking to invest in solar energy: 2024 brings a suite of tax credits and incentives designed to make solar adoption more affordable.

Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC)
The federal government offers a significant incentive for solar installations through the Investment Tax Credit (ITC). For systems installed in 2024, homeowners can deduct 30% of the cost of installing a solar energy system from their federal taxes. This credit applies to both residential and commercial properties and includes the cost of equipment and installation.

North Carolina State Incentives
North Carolina supplements the federal ITC with its own state incentives. The Renewable Energy Property Tax Credit provides a credit worth 35% of the cost of renewable energy property constructed, purchased, or leased. While this incentive is capped, it can significantly reduce the upfront costs associated with solar installations.

Utility Rebates
Several utilities in North Carolina offer rebates for solar installations. For instance, Duke Energy’s Solar Rebate offers significant rebates for residential and commercial customers who install solar panels. These rebates can further reduce the net cost of solar systems, making them more accessible.

Net Metering
North Carolina’s net metering policy allows solar panel owners to sell excess electricity back to the grid, earning credits that can offset future utility bills. This arrangement maximizes the financial benefits of your solar investment, ensuring that any surplus energy generated doesn’t go to waste.

Why Act Now?
The combination of federal and state incentives, along with utility rebates, makes 2024 an ideal time for North Carolina residents to invest in solar energy. These incentives won’t last forever, and with the changing landscape of tariffs and import costs, locking in these benefits now can provide long-term savings and energy independence.
