Already applied and on the
waiting list?

Due to the volume of interest in the solar rebate program, a waiting list is in place. Because the program is fully subscribed based on the applications received, there is no guarantee any project will be accepted into the program from the waiting list. Projects are listed based on the date we received your application. If your project is able to be accepted into the program, you will be notified via email. Please contact the Duke Energy Solar Rebates team if you believe your project should be listed on the rebate waiting list.

The waiting list will be updated the first Friday of the month.

See where you are.
