Solar in the News
Call Your Representatives TODAY
The newly filed House Bill 889 will expand North Carolina’s solar rebate program while maintaining its overall cost. It's a great common sense solution to help more North Carolinian's access solar without increasing any costs to the state. Make sure you call your representative today and ask them to support House Bill 889! We've put together all the important contacts you might need as you advocate for solar with us! 
Find Your Rep's Information
