Here are some ways to generate your own power:

Types of Power

Solar, wind, biomass and more the options for generating your own power may seem endless. And certain types of power may be more conducive to your geographical location and the characteristics of your property.

Incentives and Calculators

The U.S. Department of Energy funds the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency (DSIRE), a comprehensive source of information on state, local, utility and federal incentives and policies that promote renewable energy and energy efficiency. In addition, Duke Energy offers customers incentives for energy efficiency upgrades through the Smart $aver Incentive program (Residential; Business; Large Business). And here are some calculators to help you determine the cost-benefit of owning your own system.

Often times, as customers learn more about generating their own power, they realize that it’s not really a feasible option. Keep in mind that we offer many other programs that can help you conserve energy, save money and help the environment.

Connect to the power grid

To ensure the safety and reliability of your generation source and our power grid, take into account our interconnection requirements. Also take a moment to learn about our rate options and tariffs, and how they can benefit your project.

Find an installer

Unfortunately, Duke Energy does not endorse specific products or companies for your generation project. We recommend you visit the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners’ Installer Locator, as well as the American Wind Energy Association and N.C. Solar Center, to learn more about the possibilities of renewable energy generation.
