RALEIGH — North Carolina lawmakers are close to extending and expanding a state income tax credit for renewable energy generators people install on their property.

The House is scheduled to take final legislative action on extending the tax credit by five years to 2016.

The credit is worth 35 percent of the cost of the unit, which would include up to $8,400 for the cost of home installation for a geothermal heat pump. The cost of installing a heat pump in North Carolina ranges from $17,500 to $27,000.

The North Carolina Solar Center at N.C. State said about 20 to 30 are installed each year before the tax credit.

RODANTHE, N.C. — American heroes will be remembered at the Chicamocimico Life-Saving Station Museum Complex on Hatteras Island.

The fourth annual “American Heroes Day” will be held Thursday in Rodanthe. Chicamocimico was built on the Outer Banks in 1874 and was part of the U.S. Life-Saving Service, which became the U.S. Coast Guard.

The beach apparatus drill is usually the most popular event. The historic reenactment of a rescue method used by the U.S. Life-Saving Service involves a large two-wheeled cart filled with life-saving equipment; the firing a projectile with a black-powder cannon to get lines to a stricken ship; and then sending out equipment to save the lives of those on board.
