The U.S. Department of Energy and the North Carolina Solar Center are excited to announce that a new, modernized DSIRE is under construction. The new version of DSIRE will offer significant improvements over the current version, including expanded data accessibility and an array of new tools for site users. The new DSIRE site will be available in the summer of 2014. Staff are currently working hard on the new DSIRE and are unfortunately only able to make minimal updates to the DSIRE website at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for using DSIRE.

Summary:

The Alternative Energy Product Manufacturers tax credit may be claimed for manufacturing alternative energy products and components, including renewable energy systems, fuel cell systems, and electric and hybrid-electric vehicles. Alternative energy components include parts, assembly of parts, materials, ingredients or supplies that are incorporated directly into end-use products.  SB 233 of 2011 added "products extracted from or secreted by a single cell photosynthetic organism" to the list of eligible alternative energy products.

The total amount of the credit is approved by the Taxation and Revenue Department and is not to exceed five percent of the taxpayer’s qualified expenditures. A qualified expenditure is the purchase of manufacturing equipment made after July 1, 2006.

The alternative energy product manufacturers tax credit may only be deducted from the taxpayer's modified combined tax liability which is the total liability for the reporting period for the gross receipts, compensating tax, and withholding tax. Any portion of the alternative energy product manufacturers tax credit that remains unused at the end of the taxpayer's reporting period may be carried forward for five years.
