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 policy, solar 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.

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.
