Leading The Nation in Solar Energy
Virginia is #2 in the nation for solar energy with over 5,662 MW of solar installed. That’s enough solar power to produce electricity for over 683,648 homes! Why are so many Richmond homeowners installing solar?
Richmond residents get a rebate when installing on their residential properties. Depending on the size of your solar panel system you can expect to receive a rebate between the amount $4800 and $6000 dollars. When you add in a tax credit from the federal government and additional savings from our solar company, going solar has become an easy decision for Richmond residents.
Solar costs have dropped by 55% over the last 5 years to make solar more affordable and allowing more Richmond residents to help sustain the environment. Unfortunately, some solar incentives will be decreasing. After 2022, 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 Richmond.

Determining whether solar is worth it completely depends on a homeowner’s situation. It is our priority to help our customers become aware of how their current situation connects to solar. The first step we help homeowners take is to show them the major benefits of going solar. By exploring possible benefits, it is so much easier for homeowners to determine their “why,” or their main reason for going solar. Whether your “why” is to save thousands of dollars on electric bills over the life of your solar system, to reduce your carbon footprint, to own your electricity and be independent, or to increase the value of your home, knowing why you’re making the switch to solar will help you determine whether it’s worth it for you.
With a clearer reason to go solar in mind, homeowners will have an easier time determining whether the solar panels are worth their price. We pre-qualify each of our customers before they start on their solar journey. Some scenarios that prevent homeowners from going solar are their roof doesn’t get enough sunlight exposure, they don’t have a high enough or taxable income, or their power bill is simply too low. If a homeowner fits into any of these categories, we recommend that they not move forward with solar. By setting this standard, our customers know what they are getting themselves into before they make any payments.
When a customer passes the pre-qualifying stage, we know that their home can greatly benefit from going solar. Thus, we ask the homeowner for their latest energy bills in order to build out an accurate solar proposal. Our proposal team will use a homeowner’s billing information as well as sunlight tracking software to determine how many panels their home will need to offset 100% of their energy bill (or whatever % the homeowner desires). With that proposal built out, one of our solar specialists will personally or virtually meet the homeowner and walk them through the cost, savings, and installation process of going solar with Blue Raven Solar.
Your solar panel system is customized for your home, budget, and lifestyle. Our solar company uses modern black-on-black solar panels, which are higher quality and blend in with your roof. The system also includes a 25-year manufacturer warranty along with a production guarantee, a workmanship warranty, and a roof penetration warranty.
We make sure you save money in the long run by installing efficient photovoltaic (PV) solar panels, inverters, and other equipment. This also adds to your home resale value should you decide to move. As improvements in solar technology have improved efficiency and lifespan, many new homeowners are eager to invest in solar. A home that has a solar system that is paid off is more marketable and valuable to the latest generation of home buyers. As solar increases in popularity in Richmond and other areas, homeowners who invest in a solar system can increase the overall value of their home anywhere from 1-10%.
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 in Richmond almost as easy as flipping a switch.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Virginia residents want to keep their home clean and beautiful, so Richmond homeowners are jumping at the chance to become a part of the renewable energy movement and switch to solar.
