West Virginia homeowners and businesses soon will have an additional option when it comes to their source of electricity, as POWERHOME SOLAR is announcing its expansion into the Mountain State. West Virginia becomes the fourth new state for POWERHOME SOLAR in 2021, and becomes the 14th state in its footprint.

Customers in West Virginia will be served by the company’s offices in the adjoining states of Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania. POWERHOME SOLAR will be hiring 10-20 additional installation crew members in each neighboring state to keep up with demand. The company also is actively hiring 15-20 new sales associates.

West Virginia residents have the 16th-highest average electric bill in the U.S., per 2019 figures from the U.S. Energy Information Administration, giving consumers in the state good reason to consider adding solar. Solar panels can be financed (in some cases, for roughly the same cost as your electric bill), and unlike a reoccurring utility bill, once the financing ends, so does the payment for solar.

“This is an exciting time to offer West Virginians an alternative to grid energy,” said POWERHOME SOLAR CEO Jayson Waller. “We are at a time and place when homeowners and business owners want to own their power. Expanding into West Virginia means offering consumers a way to potentially cut costs on their electric bill, as well as reducing their carbon footprint through  renewable energy.”

Not only can investing in solar energy potentially increase residential property value, current tax credits reinforce that solar energy is a sound decision. Congress recently extended a federal solar tax credit of up to 26 percent on newly-installed solar systems through 2021 and 2022.
