Policy & Markets
The N.C. Solar Center helps businesses, policymakers, and organizations develop clean energy and transportation initiatives in the state. To promote economic development, we assist businesses by providing them information regarding state regulatory and tax policies as well as other resources. As an educator of energy policy in the state, our organization also conducts extensive research about financial incentives for the industry through the DSIRE program and collaborates with other entities for policy research. Moreover, the N.C. Solar Center consults with citizens, local governments, and organizations to provide clean technology implementation strategies.
The N.C. Solar Center’s staff is available to provide, on request, technical assistance to North Carolina policymakers and other stakeholders developing policies regarding renewable energy, energy efficiency and alternative fuels. The Solar Center also attends and participates in meetings of in-state and regional non-governmental organizations (NGO’s) with a focus on sustainable energy issues. The staff is also available to make presentations regarding the state of North Carolina energy policy when invited to do so.
