Helping Raleigh Get Maximum Solar Savings with No Upfront Costs

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 486,000 homes statewide in 2018 (and counting). With federal and local incentives, Blue Raven Solar has made it easy for Raleigh residents and beyond to save big on fluctuating utility costs. And this year, Duke Energy has proposed a $62 million solar rebate program for North Carolinians. Going solar means you could be eligible for a Duke rebate of $4,800 up to $6,000.

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?”

HIGHLY recommend, one of the solar experts came over and answered all of my questions. He made me feel incredibly comfortable with the whole process. They really do whatever they can to make sure you understand how everything works. The install was quick and flawless, and the installers were really nice guys too! I love my panels!

My experience has been great with them. Jake was a great sales consultant and guided me through the process and answered all questions. Louis came out to get all the measurements and was quite kind and courteous. The installers showed up right on time and installed everything in a few hours. The whole process has been smooth. The only problem I had was with my energy company and had nothing to do with Blue Raven Solar.

The installers were great. I think they went above and beyond for me. They made a point to come out and check on us. We had a power outage after we upgraded the electrical panel and I called Duke energy about the problem and the person tried to talk me through it and said they would send someone out the next time they could. I could not figure it out on my own so I called blue raven and there was someone out here within an hour to look at the problem they fixed it and my power was back on. My sales person has never missed or not responded to one of my calls and he has came back to my house as many times as I requested and the communication has been great. The process took a little longer than we had expected but those errors came from Duke Energy. I am happy with my experience and have recommended friends.read more

I sincerely feel that EVERY home should have solar! I LOVE the idea of solar and love it even more that it is no cost! Who wouldn't want to go solar when Blue Raven makes it so easy??? (I would give them 10 stars if I could)Think about it - $0 down, no money out of pocket for 18 months, and you help the environment. Our monthly electric bill will pay for the solar for my family - what is not to love about that? (can you say 'no-brainer')From the moment my husband set the appointment with the office, to the moment that our solar was turned on was quite the experience!We met some of the nicest, most thoughtful folks that you could ever ask for. Our questions were answered each step of the way. With each 'team', we knew exactly what was going on. Every email that I sent was answered right away. Any issue or question that I had was taken care of immediately. John J was instrumental in making the final stage of us going solar an absolute dream! You could not have asked for anything more! He took care of us like we were family and I have nothing but great things to say about him.I would absolutely recommend John and the Raleigh Blue Raven team to EVERYONE I know. Blue Raven will install solar on my next house that we buy. In fact, that will be the first thing that gets done! Yes, it is that awesome!read more

So far, so good- the PV system was installed just before gusts and heavy rains from Florence hit, and there was no damage or roof leaks. The components match what was sold (including beefy aluminum roof clips) per our very responsive sales consultant, Doug. Blue Raven's installation crew was professional and got the work done on schedule. Thankfully everything was buttoned-up before the storm. The superintendent gave frequent updates. The home office was quick to respond to a field change and documented approval of a revised drawing.Current status is waiting for net meter from Duke Energy and city inspection. This review might be updated when system is operating.read more

Glad they knocked on my door!! Couldn’t have made a better choice! Blue Raven’s process is super streamline and they are with you with updates the entire way. Top of th line equipment! I had to go with a hybrid system with 63% offset because of shading md I’m seeing tremendous saving on my power bill!

Blue Raven Solar did an amazing job with our solar job. Our salesman, Curtis did a great job explaining how the system works and every aspect of our solar conversion. The installation process was equally as professional. Chris and his team were here at the time promised. They worked efficiently. At the completion of the job, left the site clean. Chris was patient and took time to explain all aspects of how to use our new thermostat. We highly recommend this solar company. Their professional staff and performance.read more

“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.”

-Swenson Family

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 almost 3 years now since we opened our Raleigh, Blue Raven Solar headquarters. And while there are many reasons why we’re here, these are the biggest:

  • Raleigh Embraces Green Energy: 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.
  • Raleigh 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.
  • Raleigh 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.
