We’re helping people in Columbus get maximum solar savings with no upfront costs

The home of the Ohio State Buckeyes is a great city to live in, with plenty of things to do, places to go, and food to eat. With a low cost of living, all four seasons, and a great mix of city and nature, Columbus is a bustling city that has a lot to offer. Columbus residents want to keep their home beautiful and the air clean, so more and more Ohioans are making the switch to clean, renewable energy.

Thanks to the federal investment tax credit (ITC), Ohio’s net metering policysolar renewable energy certificates (SRECs), and the Energy Conservation for Ohioans (ECO-Link) program, switching to solar in Columbus, Ohio has never been more affordable. Every solar panel we install on your roof is to give you more freedom and control over your hard-earned money. You also get the satisfaction of knowing you’re doing your part to reduce harmful emissions that harm our planet.

Solar cuts down the amount you pay for electricity from the City of Columbus Division of Power or American Electric Power Company . You produce the electricity your home needs and the surplus energy goes back into the power grid. Not only do solar panels help you reduce your carbon footprint, but they also free up your hard-earned money to let you head down to the shore, never miss a day out on the water, and just do more of what you enjoy.

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 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 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.

Ohio 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 Ohio, so please get in touch to find out how we can serve you.

We provide solar to many areas within and near Columbus including Blacklick, Delaware, Hilliard, Grove City, Newark, Lewis Center, Westerville, Reynoldsburg, and more.

It’s time to take control of your electricity costs in 2020 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.

I shopped around and they had the most knowledgeable salesperson. It took some time to get all the permits and schedule everything, but they kept me informed and took care of everything. The crew did the install in a day, working until 7pm to complete the job. All around, very pleased.

Awesome experience. They did a great job getting everything setup and all the paperwork filed. Everything was spelled out in the contracts and they made sure I understood exactly what everything meant. I ran all the docs through my lawyer and there wasn’t any BS in them and what they told me was accurate.I would tell you to call them.I worked with 3 other companies getting quotes and all of the other contracts were ambiguous and didn’t clearly spell out what the deal was. I was kind of left to my own avail to trudge their stuffs.read more

This entire experience has been super easy and fast. The only delay I've seen is with my town and the build permit and final inspection. That's normal though. Blue Raven has given me updates along the way. The installation was done quickly and professionally. Super impressed so far.

We installed our panels about a year ago and I am very happy. Our Blue Raven contacts handled literally every phase of the installation from applying for permits from our village and HOA to the final debug. Then when we had a problem with the output if a few panels they made it right. My bill went down to 15.00 this last summer. That was awesome to stick it to the man. Being in Chicago I realize this will fluctuate and I am looking forward to seeing if I can manage my electric usage to build up my credits and keep it at 15.00 year round. All in all my experience with Blue Raven was and has been a very positive one and would recommend them to anyone thinking of going solar.read more

Blue Raven Solar proved to be easy to work with, from sales to installation. The installation crew was courteous, extremely efficient, and on time. We haven't turned on the system yet--there are some checks to complete first--but everything up to now has been very professional and worthy of recommendation to others.

How many solar panels will I need for my home in Columbus, Ohio?

The amount of solar panels your home will need depends on four key factors: Average energy usage, the peak sunlight hours in your area, the power output and efficiency of your solar panels, and the structural characteristics of your roof.

 

The most accurate estimate will come from a professional installer who can evaluate all the pertinent information, calculate the optimal number of solar panels needed, and recommend an appropriate solar energy system to meet your needs. Now let’s consider the details of those four factors one-at-at-time.

 

1.  Average Energy Consumption

Refer to your utility bills to find information about your average electricity usage. Your usage may be shown in the form of kilowatt hours (kWh) used over a given period, such as 30 days, or calculated based on the beginning and ending meter readings taken each month. Whatever the number, your total monthly usage can be divided out to tally average daily and hourly energy requirements.

 

2. Climate & Hours of Sunlight in your Area

The number of peak sunlight hours for your location will impact the amount of energy you can expect a rooftop solar-electric generator to produce, and therefore the number of solar panels it will take to produce your daily and monthly average demand. For instance, a home that is located in a mostly sunny area will generally need fewer solar panels than a home that is located in a predominantly cloudy or rainy area.

 

3. Solar Panel Efficiency

The productivity of a solar panel can vary based on its technology, design, size, and position on a roof. In the northern hemisphere, optimal solar panel positioning is south-facing, tilted at a 45-degree angle, and out from under any possible shading. Opting for higher-efficiency panels will yield more output (wattage) with fewer panels.

 

4. Roof Characteristics

A professional installer can assess the architecture of your roof, including its angle relative to the sun and other factors, to determine the best arrangement and the ideal number of panels to reliably match your daily energy demand. For instance, if your home’s usable roof area is limited or partially shaded, it may be necessary to install several small panels rather than a few large ones to create optimum efficiency.

 

Our qualified solar specialists and team of installers and electricians in Columbus will work together to ensure that your solar journey is aligned with your goals for your home. Whether you want to cover 100% of your home’s energy usage or only some, our team will be able to determine how many panels are needed for your system. At Blue Raven Solar, we’re proud to use  mono-crystalline, Tier-1, black-on-black solar panels in all residential installations. All our installations yield top performance, premium looks, and a 25-year manufacturer’s warranty on equipment.  We custom-design rooftop solar energy systems for each individual customer with a goal to produce the targeted amount of clean energy to save customers money and increase the value of their property.
