Helping Charleston Get Maximum Solar Savings with No Upfront Costs

South Carolina embraces solar energy with over 130,000 homes being powered by solar and counting! ! With South Carolina being one of the best in solar tax credits and rebates, along with an effort to educate and help homeowners, many are turning to solar even more in 2020.

As of January 1st, Duke Energy is offering a $.60/watt residential solar rebate to Charleston 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 the 25% tax credit from the state, the tax credit from the federal government, and additional savings from Blue Raven Solar going solar has become an easy decision for Charleston residents.

Every month our solar company is working with people just like you to slash monthly utility bill costs. Our focus is helping homeowners save with solar, but like you, we are also working hard to help the city of Charleston achieve its goal of “[becoming] a global leader in environmental sustainability.” Solar costs have dropped by 55% over the last 5 years to make solar more affordable and allowing more Charlestonians 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 Charleston 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 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.

Impressed with Blue Raven from first time I talked with the salesman to loan process and truly professional installation. Everything was laid out for me and explained thoroughly so I understood exactly what to expect, who to call, and every option I could choose from.

Good company to do business with. Unlike some of the other high-pressure pitches we had, they were transparent, honest and had a competitive product. We’ve been up and running a year now and so far most our electricity bills are $0

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

My solar panels were installed today they look great. I can’t wait until they are turned on and I getMy first power bill with them. UPDATE 10/29/2018. 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

My Blue Raven experience has been excellent. The customer service is second to none. I experienced only one issue with my system and it was resolved immediately by resetting the firmware. Blue Raven cares about their customers by the way they follow up after the installation.

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

The salesman, Rhett, was knowledgeable and personable. The home office kept us informed throughout the entire process. The installers were prompt and courteous. Kenny was on time and able to answer my questions. Everyone I have dealt with at Blue Raven has been nothing less than great! Installation and inspection are complete; now it’s time to start saving money🤗

Awesome service from the initial representative who explained thoroughly how things work as far as the panels and the incentives from the government. 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!!!! Highly recommend these guys to anyone looking to cut that unbearable electric bill!!!!read more

The company has been great, unfortunately my house had some issues that have made this process seem like a nightmare, but Blue Raven has been wonderful keeping me posted as to the progress and dealing with last minute changes on very short notice. I haven't been energized yet but can't wait!!!!!

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!

ABOUT BLUE RAVEN SOLAR CHARLESTON, SC

Blue Raven Solar came to Charleston, South Carolina in the summer of 2016 and we’ve never looked back. In fact, Charleston has quickly become one of our biggest offices, with our environment-loving neighbors joining the solar revolution, as well as our friends that are just interested in saving money.

 

Blue Raven Solar is among the most well-reviewed, fastest-growing solar companies in the nation (among the top suppliers on SolarReviews, Google, and Yelp for Charleston). 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 4 years now since we opened our Charleston, Blue Raven Solar headquarters. And while there are many reasons why we’re here, these are the biggest:

  • Charleston Embraces Solar Power: Few other cities in the country are considering a plan for 100% renewable energy by 2050.
  • Charleston 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.
  • Charleston 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.
