SOLAR INSTALLATION COMPANY IN
CHICAGO

Down arrow

From Windy City to Solar City

It started in 2016. A community solar initiative in Cook County that will result in $1.12 million dollars in electric bill savings over the next 25 years for homeowners just like you.

 

Did you know that Chicago gets just as much usable sunlight as Los Angeles? And just 25 solar panels can offset 100% of the average annual single-family electricity consumption in Cook County. While not every roof will need 25 solar panels, our solar company will design your residential solar panel system to guarantee you maximum solar savings.

 

Every panel we install on your roof is to give you more freedom and control over your hard-earned money. You also get the satisfaction of knowing you’re doing your part to reduce harmful emissions that harm our planet.

With BluePower Plus+™ you will get 18 months of free solar power, transforming your utility bill into monthly savings you can count on. Our BluePower Plus+ plan combines the best financing aspects of a 3rd party owned solar lease, a power purchase agreement (PPA), with the superior return and flexibility of solar ownership.

ABOUT BLUE RAVEN SOLAR IN CHICAGO

Blue Raven Solar is among the most well-reviewed, fastest-growing solar companies in the nation (among the top suppliers on SolarReviews, Google, and Yelp for Chicago). As a full-service, in-house solar provider, we do not outsource our work to any contractors. This means a speedy installation process—1 to 2 months in most cases—and superior customer service. We take care of design, permitting, engineering, electrical, installation, paperwork, and everything else.

 

How can we describe our love for Chicago? The world’s best pizza, hot dogs, St. Patricks day celebration, and arguably the best sports city in the country… need we say more? Since opening our Chicago Blue Raven Solar headquarters we keep finding new reasons to love Chi-town:

CHICAGO EMBRACES CLEAN ENERGY

By 2025 every government building in Chicago will receive electricity from 100% clean energy, and few states/cities have as many tax rebates and incentives for home solar panels (Investment Tax Credit, MACRS, SRECs, Capacity Rebate, and more…)

CHICAGO DESERVES THE BEST SOLAR SAVINGS

With our no money down, 18-months free solar power and energy production guarantee, we knew we could help people like you save money with solar like never before.

CHICAGO VALUES SOLAR QUALITY

While there are many local solar companies to choose from, we believe that our commitment to better solar technology helps Blue Raven rise above other solutions.

 

Now is the perfect time to make the switch to solar in Chicago! Illinois has approximately 11,000 state homes powered by solar, and counting. Over the next 5 years, Illinois is projected to rank 20th in state rankings for solar. Illinois has a goal to have 25% of its energy needs met by renewable energy sources by 2025.

HOW MUCH WILL SOLAR PANELS SAVE ME IN CHICAGO AND SURROUNDING AREAS?

Much of the initial attraction of going solar is to reduce the cost of monthly electric and utility bills. But how much does solar actually save on these bills? Well, a lot depends on how much photovoltaic (PV) energy your system is producing. The more your system produces, the more you can save. Typically, a residential solar setup produces anywhere from 350-850 kilowatt hours (kWh) per month. The average home uses approximately 909 kWh of energy per month (according to U.S. Energy Information Administrations), so owning solar can save you upwards of 90% on your monthly electric bills.

On top of monthly savings, the state of Illinois has great incentives for homeowners who want to make the switch to solar. Illinois has a renewable portfolio standard meaning the state is committed to producing 25% of its electricity by renewable resources by the year 2025. To accomplish this goal, the state is offering incentives to help its citizens put solar on their roofs. Net metering programs, solar renewable energy credits (SRECs), property tax exemptions, and 30% federal incentives make going solar more affordable for the homeowner and make Illinois one of the top states in the nation for solar.

 

Another aspect to consider when you decide to go solar is the impact it can make on the environment. In its lifetime, the average residential solar system will offset the energy produced by burning over 80 tons of coal or 175 tons of carbon dioxide. The energy generated is also equivalent to planting 4,000 trees. So yes, solar panels make an impact and help our planet, and you can feel good knowing that you are making a difference.

 

Because there are a variety of factors to determine your savings, it’s hard to know how much money you’ll save exactly. Luckily, here at Blue Raven Solar, we offer a free savings estimate. All you have to do is submit your contact information and answer a few questions about your energy use, and our solar specialists will be able to give you an accurate, zero-commitment savings report. Estimate Savings Report

 

As you can see, you can access major savings by going solar in Chicago. Whether it be saving on monthly bills, saving on reduced federal income taxes, or saving the environment, you can start saving with Blue Raven Solar today!

YOU WILL GET PREMIUM SOLAR EQUIPMENT

We make sure you save money in the long run by installing efficient photovoltaic (PV) solar panels, inverters, and other solar equipment. This also adds to your home resale value should you decide to move away from Chicago.

Your solar panel system is customized for your home, budget, and lifestyle in Chicago and surrounding areas. Our solar company uses modern black-on-black solar panels, which are higher quality and blend in with your roof. The system also includes a 25-year manufacturer warranty along with a production guarantee, a workmanship warranty, and a roof penetration warranty.

At Blue Raven Solar, we have an entire team that is dedicated to designing custom solar systems for each homeowner in Chicago. Each member of the team is highly trained and knows the ins and outs of solar technology. Our design team uses a software that allows us to see the impact of shading from trees on your roof and where your solar panels will spend the most time in the sun. As a rule of thumb, our designers place as many solar panels on the south facing eaves because they generally spend the most amount of time in direct sunlight. If you don’t have a southern facing roof, east and west facing roofs get enough sunlight to make solar panels a viable option. By creating a simple calculation, our team of designers can determine how much electricity each of your panels will produce and how many panels your home will need to offset the amount of electricity that you desire. The best part of this whole process is that it is absolutely 100% free! The custom design also includes a proposal that outlines projected lifetime savings, pricing, financing options, and solar incentives.

How Solar Energy Works

How solar energy works is a combination of technology, economics, and customer service. But it begins with the sun beaming enough energy to earth each hour to power global civilization for a year. With the right equipment, you can harness your share of it and power your life on sunlight. Blue Raven Solar combines all those into a hassle-free experience to make going solar almost as easy as flipping a switch.

THE SOLAR TECHNOLOGY

Photovoltaics, power inverters, net metering, and photons from the sun create a clean, renewable power source for homeowners. Switching to solar shrinks utility bills and your carbon footprint while boosting the value of your home.

THE SOLAR ECONOMICS

Falling equipment prices, lucrative tax incentives, and attractive financing make solar energy more accessible to average homeowners than ever. In today’s energy market, rooftop solar often pays back its initial price in just a few years.

THE SOLAR SERVICES

Going solar happens in multiple steps: consultation, design, permitting, installation, inspection of the system, and energization. Each and every step involves its own unique setup and process. When you go solar with Blue Raven, our Chicago solar team works hard to keep the whole experience stress-free.

Become Your Own Power Plant

At Blue Raven this is the heart of what we believe: our nation’s current power generation is not sustainable. As a nation, we still get over 67% of our electricity from the burning of fossil fuels.

Regardless if one believes in global warming or not, we can all agree that the toxic pollution that these carbon-based energy sources spew into the atmosphere is not a good thing. The simple test is this: would you like your family to live next to a coal-fired power plant?

Standard electricity is produced from fossil fuels like coal, oil, and natural gasses. When burned, these fuels emit chemical gases causing pollution and harm to our environment. Fossil fuels are not only destructive to the environment, but they are also a limited resource. Solar electricity is by far one of the cleanest forms of energy.

Chicago and surrounding area residents are jumping at the chance to become a part of the renewable energy movement. We’re excited to help you throughout your solar journey and hope to help you make a positive impact on the environment while saving you thousands on your electricity bill! As America’s #1 solar installer, we continue to grow throughout Illinois, so please get in touch to find out how we can serve you.

We provide solar to many areas within and near Chicago, including Elgin, Schaumburg, Aurora, Joliet, Cicero, Hanover Park, Naperville, Evanstson, and more (for a full list of areas serviced, see below).

It’s time to take control of your electricity costs in 2021 with Blue Raven Solar. Give us a call or request a free custom quote. It only takes a couple of minutes to find out how much you could be saving with one of the top companies in the solar industry.
