The Duke Energy Carolinas and Duke Energy Progress solar rebate requires that your bidirectional meter either be installed in the same year, or in the last 90 days of the previous year. For the the 2019 program year you can begin work on your solar installation after October 3, 2018, to be eligible to apply for the 2019 rebate.
This is to abide by the 90-Day Rule intended to allow customers who install late in the year to still have a chance at the rebate. Because rebates are considered in the order received, it can be beneficial to avoid delays that could hold up your project, so that on January 1, 2019 you’re qualified and ready to apply for the rebate.
