Virginia Homeowners Going Solar at No Cost. Here’s How…

Installing solar panels can cost the average Virginia homeowner $25,000, making it too expensive for most people to go solar. The good news is that a new state-funded initiative wants to change that. This new program aims to help homeowners make the switch to solar at no upfront cost through rebates and incentives.

Funded by the Federal Government as well as private non-profits to promote alternative energy, this Program’s directive is to get solar panels installed on the roofs of those who cannot afford the high upfront costs. This program uses rebates and incentives, in the form of Earned Income Tax Credits (EITCs), as well as money raised by companies who want to lower our carbon footprint.

Through this program, homeowners receive solar panels, full professional installation and a dramatically reduced (if not completely eliminated) electric bill with no out of pocket expense. According to initial reports, this program is saving Virginia homeowners an average of $1,016 per year.* Plus, if you own the panels, a new solar system can increase your property’s value by as much as 20%. Finally a real stimulus homeowners have needed for years!

The goal is to install solar panels for 25,000 middle class homeowners in Virginia by the end of 2017. As of June 14, 2021, they have already filled over 70% of this quota and could run out by the end of this month. If you’re interested in this program, you need to act now.

If you currently own a home in Virginia, we encourage you to apply for this program here. Just answer a few simple questions and we’ll be able to determine if you qualify. There is no obligation and it only takes 30 seconds.

EDITORS NOTE: You’re NOT under contract with your current electric provider, even if they say so. If you’ve already paid your current bill, you can very easily cancel and get the balance refunded.

Benno A. Deifel finally got the hint…we have 5 panels and are so happy we did it. Always hot water at NO COST – for 10 years now. Paid for itself.

Mary Chewning Not exactly what you think. You get 40% off the cost and the rest comes over the years in utility saving due to the solar. Still a good deal for a home owner, even if you finance the 60%.

Carolyn Watt All solar is of no cost to the homeowner, if they get the pay as you go program! The solar company owns the panels that they install free of charge! The custome…See More.
