In South Carolina, taxpayers may claim a credit of 55% of the costs of purchasing and installing a solar energy system or small hydropower system for heating water, space heating, air cooling, energy-efficient daylighting, heat reclamation, energy-efficient demand response, or the generation of electricity in a building owned by the taxpayer. The term "system" includes "all controls, tanks, pumps, heat exchangers, and other equipment used directly and exclusively for the solar-energy system." The term "system" does not include any land or structural elements of the building, such as walls and roofs, or other equipment ordinarily contained in the structure.

Why is AC-Coupling important

AC coupling is not only valuable to the end users who power their homes or businesses during grid outages; it is valuable for solar installers and distributors looking for new revenue streams. The market scale demonstrates the potential of the technology: More than 300,000 residences in the U.S. have grid-tied solar. Pair this with grid uncertainty due to storms, and AC coupling is a highly attractive retrofit opportunity nearly every home or business with grid-tied solar is a potential customer for upgrading to grid-interactive with AC coupling.

SC utility interests stop solar meeting

South Carolina electric cooperatives have stopped a solar energy forum that was supposed to let people explain how the state can improve its sun power rules, which are among the least customer friendly in the country. Solar energy is growing in interest because making power from the sun can lower power bills for homeowners, schools and businesses. Since solar panels produce energy for free, less power is needed from electrical utilities. Solar panels also do not release any pollution or toxic waste, unlike coal and nuclear plants.
