IS SOLAR IN WILMINGTON A GOOD CHOICE?

Wilmington is an excellent place to invest in solar energy with its abundant sunshine and optimal weather. While solar panels are a large purchase, North Carolina has several rebates and incentives available for homeowners who make the switch.  

 

North Carolina is swiftly advancing in its adoption of solar energy, spearheading a movement towards cleaner, more sustainable power sources and ushering in a new era of environmental responsibility. This transition to solar power is reducing carbon emissions, but also generating significant savings making solar a good choice for Wilmington residents. 

 

The cost of traditional grid electricity in Wilmington is relatively high—15 ¢/kWh, which is twelve percent higher than the average electricity rate in North Carolina. The economic appeal of solar panels in Wilmington is further amplified, offering significant long-term savings to residents and businesses alike. Embracing solar energy also aligns with environmental goals, reducing reliance on fossil fuels and mitigating climate change by producing clean, renewable energy.

SOLAR COSTS, INCENTIVES, AND SAVINGS IN WILMINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA

Wilmington residents, like you, can experience the benefits of lower monthly energy bills while contributing to a brighter, greener future. There are also several tax credits, incentives, and programs to reduce the cost of going solar.

FEDERAL INVESTMENT TAX CREDIT (ITC)

The federal investment tax credit, also known as the ITC, provides homeowners with a 30% tax credit towards the costs of the customized, rooftop solar installation. You can claim this credit when you file your federal income taxes. If the ITC exceeds the amount you owe in federal income taxes, the unused portion of the ITC is not lost, but rolls over to subsequent tax years, meaning you are guaranteed to get the full tax credit.

NET METERING PROGRAMS AND POLICIES

Net metering programs and policies allow solar adopters to benefit from the excess energy their solar panel systems produce. Duke Energy offers net metering to its customers and allows them to choose between two different programs. One allows homeowners to offset their solar usage for times when they are not producing energy, like at night. The other option is to sell back the excess power you generate for credits, to reduce your utility bill.

PROPERTY TAX EXEMPTION

North Carolina’s state-wide property tax exemption for homeowners who install solar on their homes presents a financial benefit. By installing solar panels on your property, you enhance its value but also enjoy the assurance your property taxes will remain the same. This exemption acknowledges the positive impact of solar energy adoption, incentivizing homeowners to invest in home renewable energy without facing additional financial burdens. As a result, North Carolina residents can confidently embrace solar power, knowing they are enhancing the value of their homes without increasing their property taxes.

DUKE ENERGY NORTH CAROLINA REBATE

Duke Energy extends rebates to North Carolina customers seeking to install solar panel systems. Under the program, homeowners can receive a rebate of $0.40 per watt for systems up to 10 kilowatts. For instance, an average 8-kilowatt (kW) system would qualify for a $3,200 rebate. Learn more about how to apply for this rebate.

FLEXIBLE FINANCING ON HOME SOLAR PANEL SYSTEMS

In North Carolina, cities and counties have the authority to offer low-interest loans for solar panels and other energy upgrades, providing homeowners with flexible financing options. Under this legislation, solar loan terms are capped at 20 years with an interest rate limit of eight percent, offering homeowners a significant incentive and financial security. This regulation has led to increased interest in adopting solar energy among homeowners. 

 

At Blue Raven Solar, we recognize homeowners value autonomy in their financial decisions, seek to maximize savings through various solar incentives, and prioritize exceptional customer service. That’s why we provide tailored financing solutions to accommodate different circumstances. Whether you prefer upfront payment or alternative financing methods, we have options available to suit your needs and help you seamlessly transition.

FIRST STEP OF BECOMING SELF-SUFFICIENT: GENERATE YOUR OWN ELECTRICITY

At Blue Raven Solar, we are committed to a fundamental principle: the current trajectory of our nation’s power generation is not sustainable. With over 70% of our electricity still reliant on the combustion of fossil fuels, it’s clear a shift towards more environmentally friendly alternatives is necessary. 

 

Conventional electricity production is reliant on resources such as coal, oil, and natural gas. However, the combustion of these fuels releases harmful chemicals, polluting our air, greenhouse gas emissions, water pollution, land degradation, health impacts and more – all resulting in long-term damage. Fossil fuels are nonrenewable and finite, which means they will not be around forever. This increases the urgency to transition to renewable energy sources. 

 

Solar power, in contrast, is a clean and renewable energy source. By relying on the sun, solar energy minimizes the environmental impacts and reduces our reliance on finite resources. With its reliability and long-term viability, solar represents a promising solution to the challenges posed by our current energy landscape.

INNOVATIVE PHOTOVOLTAIC TECHNOLOGY

We believe Blue Raven Solar distinguishes itself through its unwavering commitment to superior solar technology and customer service.

 

Our commitment to superior technology is demonstrated in our premium solar inverters. We install inverters when you install solar on your roof. Since AC power is the standard for household appliances, the DC current from solar panels needs to be converted before getting added to a home’s power supply. Microinverters get wired to make this conversion and create a gateway between a solar array and a home’s main electrical panel. 

SEAMLESS HOME SOLAR SOLUTIONS

As a comprehensive, in-house solar provider, we can help you make the switch and become more energy independent.  

 

Our rooftop installation team is local to your area, in Wilmington, North Carolina, providing prompt service and customer support. With our step-by-step solar installation process, you will be creating clean energy in 1 to 2 months, in most cases. From design and permitting to engineering, electrical work, HOA approval (if applicable) and installation, we strive to make going solar a seamless experience.

 

Our expert survey team conducts a thorough assessment of your residence, optimizing positioning and finalizing the design of your custom solar array. Blue Raven Solar offers high-quality equipment including monocrystalline solar panels, Enphase microinverters, racking systems, and solar batteries, ensuring efficient power generation and conversion. Our solar panel systems include a 25-year manufacturer warranty and additional assurances such as production, workmanship, and roof penetration warranties, providing peace of mind.

THE ECONOMIC DYNAMICS: RETURN ON INVESTMENT AND STORAGE SOLUTIONS

Choosing solar for your home and financing your system through Blue Raven Solar means enjoying consistent, manageable monthly payments.  

 

As the disparity between your fixed payments and the rising electricity expenses widens, the value of your investment in solar power grows. Our research demonstrates homeowners experience the highest satisfaction when they not only gain ownership of their power source but also access substantial savings. In addition, incorporating solar batteries or other home storage solutions can enhance your energy independence and provide storage for excess energy, further maximizing your savings potential and resilience against utility rate fluctuations.

Truly amazing experience from start to finish. I don’t typically post reviews, but Blue Raven deserves it. Our salesman, Brantley was incredible. Made us feel like we were his only client. He had a way of making everything very simple and easy to understand and seemed to respond instantly to any questions we had, day or night. Can’t recommend this company highly enough.

Blue Raven Solar was great through the whole process of getting the panels installed. They helped keep me aware of the process throughout all of the stages. Design approval, HOA approval, utility approval, installation, jurisdiction inspection, utility commissioning, and enabling the system. Great responsiveness and helpful throughout the whole process.

Consultants were extremely kind and professional, always answering every extensive question. They work with you step by step through the entire progress and check in regularly to ensure the process is on track and going smoothly. I highly recommend going with this company and program. My panels were delivered and installed ahead of schedule and when I needed someone to check the system, they sent someone out the very next day.

Thank You Evan and Blue Raven! Super Stars all around. From Evan coming to our house and introducing us to these panels to these GREAT technicians... completing the job. Sorry I’m not good with names so I apologize, but these 4 guys were all AWESOME! (A couple of them drove down from Nebraska - not a short drive to North Carolina) They were hard working and very respectful. I’m sorry I can’t remember all 4 guys names. The guys who installed the panels worked for 10 hours straight. I had to go outside and offer them water. The Electricians came out the following day and again I had to go outside and offer them water as well. They worked for 7 hours straight. All together it was a special experience and I’m looking forward to a decreased Electric Bill and a HUGE investment in my family’s future. Before they left for the day they all explained the process and what they performed that day. They answered all of my questions I had. Again, thank you Blue Raven! This company is AWESOME!read more

I just had my solar panels installed. My sales guy, Sam, was extremely knowledgeable and convincing and walked me through my million questions until... I was comfortable with my decision. When the crew came to install, I was blown away by their kindness, knowledgeable, work ethic and speed. I had two obnoxious dogs running around and the crew was so patient with me and made sure to keep the gate shut and be respectful. They cleaned up after themselves and were cheerful and safe the whole time.I haven't gotten my solar set up for service yet, but I'll update this review when I do. So far, 10/10 experience!!read more
