Solar Is Powering Richmond
The capital of Virginia and one of America’s oldest major cities is also one of the best cities to live for affordability, employment, and outdoor recreation. Richmond is also the perfect place to go solar in 2021. Federal incentives will save you thousands of dollars on your solar system, and many utility companies offer incentives for customers who wish to go solar.
Richmond residents want to keep the air and water clean and the environment flourishing. But there’s another reason people are installing solar panels systems. Richmond and surrounding area homeowners are saving big on utility bills.
Solar cuts down the amount you pay for electricity to your utility company. You produce the electricity your home needs and the surplus energy goes back into the power grid. Solar panels free up your hard-earned money to let you and your family do more of what you enjoy.
Between a federal tax credit and other local incentives, solar has become a no-brainer for Virginians. Plus, homeowners who own their panels will almost always end up saving more money than those who choose to lease. Read more to learn about going solar in Richmond.

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 in Richmond 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.
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.

How do we describe our love for Virginia? The birthplace of the nation is known for its rich history, east coast charm, and friendly citizens. Virginians also love saving money, which makes solar a n0-brainer.
Richmond’s population is growing faster than both the state of Virginia and the United States, and this is thanks to its affordability, booming job market, unique art scene, rich history, and plenty to do year-round for the whole family. Richmond also experiences all four seasons, with hot and humid summers, pleasant falls and springs, and mild winters, which makes it perfect for homeowners to make the switch to solar. Plus, with net metering policies, the federal tax credit, and residential property tax exemption, Richmond homeowners can save thousands of dollars on their solar system.
Blue Raven Solar is among the most well-reviewed, fastest-growing solar companies in the nation. As a full-service in-house solar provider, we do not outsource our work to any contractors.

We take care of design, permitting, engineering, electrical, installation, paperwork, and everything else.
While there are many reasons why Blue Raven Solar is in Virginia, these are the some of biggest:
Discover Your Why for Going Solar
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.
Estimating the Cost and Savings of Solar for your Home
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.
