Leading The Nation in Solar Energy
North Carolina is #2 in the nation for solar energy with over 5,662 MW of solar installed. That’s enough solar power to produce electricity for over 683,648 homes! Why are so many Asheville homeowners installing solar?
Asheville residents get a rebate on their building permit when installing on their residential properties. Also, as of January 1st, Duke Energy is offering a $.60/watt solar rebate to Asheville residents. Depending on the size of your solar panel system you can expect to receive a rebate between the amount $4800 and $6000 dollars from Duke. When you add in a tax credit from the federal government and additional savings from our solar company, going solar has become an easy decision for Asheville residents. This program is first come, first served, and once Duke Energy runs out of available funds for rebates in 2020, solar customers can join a waitlist for the rebate.
Solar costs have dropped by 55% over the last 5 years to make solar more affordable and allowing more Asheville residents to help sustain the environment. Unfortunately, some solar incentives will be decreasing. After 2020, the federal tax credit won’t be so generous, and you never know how long local rebates and incentives will last. It’s time to take control of your utility bill. There has never been a better time to go solar in Asheville than 2020.

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 in Asheville almost as easy as flipping a switch.
The 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 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 Service: Going solar happens in steps: consultation, design, permitting, installation, inspection, and energization. Each step involves its own process. When you go solar with Blue Raven, our team works hard to keep the whole experience trouble-free.
Become Your Own Power Plant
At Blue Raven Solar, 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 fuels like coal, oil, and natural gas. 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.
North Carolina residents want to keep their home clean and beautiful, so Asheville homeowners are jumping at the chance to become a part of the renewable energy movement and switch to solar.

Asheville residents get the best of both worlds: the hustle and bustle of city living, while being only minutes from mountains and nature. With its thriving art scene, fine dining, craft breweries on every corner, along with plenty of outdoor activities and breathtaking views, Asheville is a charming city that offers something for everyone. Asheville residents also experience all four seasons, with hot summers and little snow in the winter, making it the perfect city to make the switch to solar.
Blue Raven Solar came to North Carolina in the summer of 2016 and we’ve never looked back. It has quickly become one of our biggest markets, with our environment-loving neighbors joining the solar revolution, as well as our friends that are just interested in saving money. Asheville residents are making the switch to clean, renewable energy and saving thousands, and you can, too.
Blue Raven Solar is among the most well-reviewed, fastest-growing solar companies in the nation (among the top suppliers on SolarReviews and Google. As a full-service in-house solar provider, we do not outsource our work to any contractors. This means a speedy installation—1 to 2 months in most cases—and superior customer service for you. We take care of design, permitting, engineering, electrical, installation, paperwork, and everything else.
It’s been almost 5 years now since we opened our NC Blue Raven Solar headquarters. And while there are many reasons why we’re here, these are the biggest:
Determining whether solar is worth it completely depends on each homeowner’s situation. It is our priority to help potential Blue Raven Solar customers become aware of how solar can help them save money and reduce their carbon footprint. Our solar specialists are not just trying to sell a product to customers, they are helping homeowners decide whether solar would improve their lives. The first step we help homeowners take is to show them the major benefits of going solar. By exploring possible benefits, it is so much easier for homeowners to determine their “why,” or their main reason for going solar. Whether your “why” is to save thousands of dollars on electric bills over the life of your solar system, to reduce your carbon footprint, to own your electricity and be independent, or to increase the value of your home, knowing why you’re making the switch to solar will help you determine whether it’s worth it for you.
We pre-qualify each of our customers before they start on their solar journey. Some scenarios that prevent homeowners from going solar are their roof doesn’t get enough sunlight exposure, they don’t have a high enough or taxable income, or their power bill is simply too low. If a homeowner fits into any of these categories, we recommend that they not move forward with solar. By setting this standard, our customers know what they are getting themselves into before they make any payments. After deciding to make the switch to solar, our dedicated teams of installers and field service technicians, along with our permitting and support teams working behind the scenes, will ensure that your solar journey is as easy and seamless as possible for you while working hard to get your solar panels installed on your roof and energized.
At Blue Raven Solar, we’re proud to use mono-crystalline, Tier-1, black-on-black solar panels in all residential installations. All our installations yield top performance, premium looks, and a 25-year manufacturer’s warranty on equipment. We custom-design rooftop solar energy systems for each individual customer with a goal to produce the targeted amount of clean energy to save customers money and increase the value of their property.
