This bill is one of many anti-solar and anti-renewable energy bills proposed in this session, even though clean energy has brought over 34,000 jobs to North Carolina since 2015 - a 31% increase.

This bill would make having a solar energy system more costly for owners by removing Present-Use Value status for their land. This would remove the tax breaks from agricultural, forested, or horticulture land and trigger requirements for payment of deferred taxes when a solar energy system built on the property receives a property tax abatement and the energy generated by the system is not used solely ‘for the benefit of the land’.
