Harvesting Sunshine Produces Big Savings in Raleigh


Every year Raleigh is voted one of the best places to live in America. Carolina Dogs, Cheerwine, breathtaking beauty, and a great cost of living. It’s hard to imagine the City of Oaks getting any better than it is right now. But with the rise of residential solar across North Carolina, life in Raleigh is getting even better. By producing clean energy with home solar panels, local residents are preserving Raleigh’s natural beauty and cutting home electricity costs.


Since 2007, solar system installs have risen from powering 92 homes in North Carolina to powering over 683,648 homes statewide in 2019 (and counting). With federal and local incentives, Blue Raven Solar Raleigh, NC has made it easy for residents and beyond to save big on fluctuating utility costs.


Also, Duke Energy offers a $0.60/watt solar rebate to Raleigh residents. Depending on the size of your solar panel system you can expect to receive a rebate between the amount $4,800 and $6,000 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 North Carolina residents. This program is first come, first served, and once Duke Energy runs out of available funds for rebates, solar customers can join a waitlist for the rebate.


Rebates like this, coupled with a 70% drop in solar equipment costs since 2010 have made owning solar fantastically affordable in Raleigh. So much so that Wake County officials have put forth a “clean energy resolution” to move from fossil fuels to 100% green energy by 2050. Our solar company is proud to be a partner in an effort to ensure a green future for Raleigh by harvesting sunshine that puts money back in your wallet, so you can focus on other important things like: “Which is better, Lexington or Eastern style barbecue?”

“He came to the door, offered the inverter with the solar panels, and he calculated out what the cost would be and it is way less than even our lowest electrical bill. It was a no-brainer.”

So, Blue Raven was the fourth solar company that I reached out to. The first three gave me the full dog-and-pony show. 1+ hour spiels. Slick talkers.... Ugh.I reached out to Blue Raven on the recommendation of my neighbor. Left my name and number on their website. They called back the next morning and I could just notice a difference. The person on the phone was very straight forward about the whole thing. I explained that I'd done my research, and had three other forms at my house, and all I wanted was someone to explain how the financing really worked. So he said he'd inform the sales person.That's how I met Megan Thomason. She is the nicest, most professional sales agent I've ever met. I don't mean professional like a lawyer or doctor, I mean she just knew her business and answered every one of my questions with straight forward answers. No spiel, just a very nice conversation with honest answers. On top of that, I think Megan is just a nice person. So, Blue Raven got my business.Now the Blue Raven team that helped us through the HOA, permitting, and installation were, in my opinion, top notch. Very on top of all the details. Lots of very good communication. Not too much and not pushy. They just kept at it. I'm forgetful, so their reminders were important for me. Just a decent experience. I can tell you that it went just the way I expected it too. What a relief.Lee, the Blue Raven installation lead showed up at my door on Friday exactly at the scheduled time, in the middle of a huge downpour, to tell me that it wasn't going to happen that day. Another nice guy. Asked if he should move the solar panels and equipment off the driveway while it was POURING rain. He moved everything to the back of the house so my wife could park her car.The Blue Raven team called later that day to reschedule. Turned out they had an open slot for Monday morning. Perfect. Lee and the crew showed up bright and early. They got right to work. Had 15 panels installed in about three-ish hours. I checked as they were finishing, and one of the panels on the end was bowed up because my brand new house with its brand new roof has a sag in the middle. Asked Lee if he could level it. " No problem, Mr Fowler. I'll see if I can adjust the clip on that side." It wasn't perfect, but it was a lot better, and not their fault, either. Their electrician had the attic and outside wired just around the same time. Hmmm, team work.So Lee and his crew had the whole installation done by 11 o'clock. They walked me through the entire setup, answered my (dumb) questions and then told me what to expect next: city inspection, Duke Energy, etc.The whole journey has been absolutely painless. It's been my best experience with tradesmen yet. I think Blue Raven is just a bunch of nice people doing decent work and striving to do it right. I have to tell you, I found that very refreshing. It speaks to a management that knows what they are doing.So, Blue Raven, I tip my hat to you and wish you the very best. And thanks for making this a very simple more

Did you know that North Carolina is the Nation’s second largest solar energy producer? Cities like Raleigh have placed North Carolina as a global leader in clean energy. You can find this statement on the city’s website: “The City of Raleigh is… committed to conserving energy to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, equating to real dollar savings for our citizens. It’s been over four years now since we opened our Raleigh, Blue Raven Solar office. While there are many reasons why we’re here, these are the biggest:


Wake County has submitted a “clean energy resolution” to transition to 100% green energy by 2050. Few other counties with cities like Raleigh have such an inspiring goal.


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.


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

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.


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.


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.


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 Solar, 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 60% of our electricity from the burning of fossil fuels.


Regardless if one believes in global warming or not, we can all agree the toxic pollution these carbon-based energy sources spew into the atmosphere is not good. 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.


Raleigh 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 North Carolina, so please get in touch to find out how we can serve you.


We provide solar to many areas within and near Raleigh. Major cities include Durham, Cary, Apex, Jacksonville, Chapel Hill, Garner, Fuquay Varina, Morrisville, and more.


It’s time to take control of your electricity costs 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.
