SOLAR SAVINGS IN SOUTH CAROLINA

Why do people love living in South Carolina? With it beautiful beaches, rich history, great weather and proximity to both the mountains and the coast, South Carolina has grown in popularity and many of its cities consistently rank on “best places to live” lists. Also, with lots of sun and several solar incentives, South Carolina is also a great place to make the switch to solar! When homeowners combine federal tax credits with state tax credits, they’ll be sure to save big on their solar system.

NET METERING

Net metering is applicable to all South Carolina residents. Every residential solar owner is entitled to credits for excess energy production. Those credits will be applied to the homeowner’s next utility bill and if there are excess credits at the end of the year, homeowners receive compensation.

STATE TAX CREDITS

South Carolina is one of the few states to offer state tax credits for going solar. The tax credit covers 25% of the cost of your solar system and can be carried over for up to ten years if you don’t pay enough in taxes in any one year.

As far as installation, the crew showed up at the appointed time, worked diligently, and finished ahead of schedule. They were respectful of my property, of the plants around the exterior of the house, and left the area cleaned up when they were finished.I had to call the office with an issue after the crew left the site. They promptly attended to the issue, to my complete satisfaction. As of right now, I am. VERY SATISFIED CUSTOMER!!!**System is not up yet, so I don't have any additional info to add at this time. I am awaiting my inspection and a visit from the local electric provider to switch over my meter...then I will be producing my on solar power! Very excited!!read more

Very impressed by their work the crew is extremely professional, cleaned up and communicated the details every step of the way. My experience has been very positive so far as they have kept the project moving while dealing with my busy schedule, the poor weather and also working with PGE. I also have a concrete tile roof so it's not easy to work on but they were very careful and replaced any tiles that were cracked in the process. Overall excellent job by Crew #4, who took great care during the installation process. Thank you for the great work!read more

The installation crew arrived on time and got right down to work. They were as unobtrusive as any work crew could be with such big job on the roof. They completed the effort in a timely manner and left the yard in at least as good condition as it was on their arrival. The personnel that I interacted with directly were most courteous and positive. They answered all of my questions to my satisfaction and gave a clear description of the work done, the functioning of the collector, and what to expect in the way of building inspection and installation of the new Xcel meter in the coming days.I can unequivocally say we have been given excellent service from sales to installation from Blue Raven on this residential installation project.read more

Well, it's been a year and a half since we had our Blue Raven Solar Panels installed and I am every bit as happy with them today as I was on day one. It still boggles my mind that everyone in CO Springs hasn't taken advantage of this technology, especially with the tax credits available. It really is a painless procedure, adds to the value of your home, cuts your energy costs, and is great for our environment. I'm happy we have solar and Blue Raven was the right company to hook us up.

It has been one year since we had Blue Raven install our solar system. It was a bit tricky, and coordination was difficult during the construction phase (and during the pandemic!), but we made it through that, received many helps and return calls when we had questions, and excellent customer service, so that we can honestly say, KUDOS to Blue Raven! Thank you for the free electricity! Our electric car is working great, our electric bills are zero, and just a few months more and we'll have the return on investment!read more

Have had our solar panels for one year now. It was fun (for me at least) to compare our utility bills from the year before and we basically cut our bills in half (not taking into consideration the rise in utility costs, so probably even better). We have had zero issues and the installation process was painless. Would definitely recommend.

The technicians who came to install the units were all very nice and really easy to work with. They were extremely helpful and made sure to keep the work area clean. Jesse (the salesman we worked with) was professional and helpful in explaining everything to us. He continues to be very helpful with any questions we have. The system looks very sleek on the roof and so do the smart thermostats that they installed inside. We travel a ton, so I am very thankful for the Ecobee thermostat that I can control from an app on my phone saving us a ton of money.read more

Installers showed up on time and were very courteous and non intrusive. I chose to work from home during the install with some spiritual music on to drown out any noise. To my surprise one gentleman was actually humming along with me. All in all the installation wasnt even noticeable and my housemate slept through the whole day. The exterior of the house and work space was kept clean and organized throughout the install. Other than new esthetically pleasing panels on the roof (unlike my neighbors) I cant tell they were really here. I will say that the thoroughness and attention given on the user devices left me comfortable with the system. I will be reaching out to Blue Raven to install panels on my other property as well.read more

GOT MY FIRST POWER BILL, MORE THAN HALF WHAT IT WAS LAST MONTH. THIS MONTH WILL BE THE FIRST FULL BILL THAT I RECEIVE. VERY PROFESSIONAL SERVICE. THE ONLY THING THAT I RECOMMEND IS, THAT BLUE RAVEN SHOULD NOT TAKE A DRAW ON YOUR LOAN UNTIL THE SYSTEM IS ACTIVATED. THAT IS THE ONLY THING I WOULD HAVE CHANGED IN THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE. OTHER THAN THAT, BLUE RAVEN IS THE WAY TO GO WITH SOLAR.read more

Blue Raven is absolutely amazing! We started by wanting to know more about it and what it would look like for installation. Evan was very knowledgeable, patient, and broke things down for us in a way that was easy to understand! He had us a Solar! To this day, He continues to check on us make sure that everything is working correctly followed up on appointment even though his part with us was done. The installers that came out we’re great to they worked diligently to install the solar panels and after they were done took the time to walk us through its use and where we could go for future support. Blue Raven has been very responsive and We have already told many of our friends family and neighbors about them and their product. If you have any on cellular, make the switch today!read more

Blue Raven did a great job with the installation in 2017, explained in detail and walked me through each step of the process of getting connected to solar. Price was good with the rebates, and the payment was easy to make and view through their 3rd party vendor. I would recommend them if you're looking for a solid solar installation company!

Blue Raven handled the entire process for the solar installation for me, so it was nice to not have to do too much footwork on the entire process. This included scheduling any required inspection, filing any required paperwork (including the HOA approval), and setting up the loan for the system. Installation only took about half a day, and the installation team was able to improvise a fix for some design oversights pretty quickly.I was also provided with access to a dashboard website where I can review the generated output of my system day-to-day and by the hour, which is helpful for comparing to the energy company's net meter reporting. All-in-all, the process was quite painless and I look forward to reducing my future reliance on energy from the grid. Thanks, Blue Raven Solar.read more

Installers were very courteous, professional, on time, quick, and knowledgeable in any questions I had. They cleaned up everything very neatly as it was when they got here. Wouldn't have even known they were there if it wasn't for the panels lol. Would say I'd definitely use them again but I don't think we plan on leaving this place anytime soon.....or ever!!!!

It’s shocking more people aren’t going solar in South Carolina. I’m getting around $8000 back from the federal government AND about $6000 back from South Carolina on my taxes for going solar. Didn’t pay any money upfront, just replaced what I was already paying SCEG every month with a cheaper solar payment. Install is clean with interior conduit and quality panels/Inverter. I chose Blue Raven over a local company because they offer a lot more value overall (have more experience with installs, better reviews, quicker response time to issues, etc.) and the risk of them going out of business is minimal in comparison. Been a great experience so far with Blue Raven.read more

I was paying $150/month to SCEG when I spoke to Blue Raven about the possibility of going solar. No upfront or out of pocket money and now I pay $120/month and will eventually pay $0/month once my system is paid off. In the meantime I’m saving $30 every month which is a lot since I’m on a fixed income. Install looks great, all my expectations were met! If you’re looking for a great experience going solar, look no further than Blue Raven!
