There are over 130,000 homes being powered by solar in the Palmetto State 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.

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.
Become Your Own Power Plant
At Blue Raven this is the heart of what we believe: our nation’s current power generation is not sustainable. As a nation, we still get over 67% of our electricity from the burning of fossil fuels.
Regardless if one believes in global warming or not, we can all agree that the toxic pollution that these carbon-based energy sources spew into the atmosphere is not a good thing. 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.
South Carolina 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 South Carolina, so please get in touch to find out how we can serve you.

After arriving in South Carolina in 2016, Blue Raven Solar has grown and expanded in the Palmetto State.. In fact, South Carolina has quickly become one of our biggest markets, with our environment-loving neighbors joining the solar revolution, as well as our friends that are just interested in saving money.
The city of Greenville is not only one of the best places to live in South Carolina, but it is also the perfect city to go solar, with its sunny weather and local incentives, such as Duke Energy’s net metering policy and the state’s solar tax credit.
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 Greenville). 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 more than 4 years now since we opened our South Carolina Blue Raven Solar headquarters. And while there are many reasons why we’re here, these are the biggest:
With beautiful beaches, lots of sun, and several solar incentives, South Carolina is a great place to go solar! With utility bills increasing, Blue Raven Solar offers affordable solutions that will help Greenville residents save money and cut their utility bill forever.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.
Federal Tax Incentives – By owning your own solar system, you qualify for tax deductions from the government. In 2020, the government lets owners deduct 26% of the cost of installing a rooftop solar-electric generator, including the cost of any necessary remodeling or retrofitting work associated with the solar installation, from your federal income taxes. Thus, if you were to spend $10,000 dollars on your system, you will receive a $2,600 tax credit. As an added bonus, many states allow for households with solar units to qualify for a deduction on their state income taxes as well.
As solar power becomes more popular, these incentives will likely disappear. Thus, there is no better time to go solar than the year 2020. If you still have your doubts, don’t hesitate to get a free online estimate with Blue Raven Solar. It is our mission to help homeowners across the nation determine whether solar is a smart investment for your unique home and situation. At Blue Raven Solar, we are committed to helping our customers start saving immediately. We provide multiple ways to finance your new panels.

During these 18 months, the only cost that customers will have is a small monthly charge of around 10 dollars to have your panels stay connected to the grid. All in all, it is our mission to help our customers save tens of thousands of dollars during their solar journey.
