Benefits of Solar Energy in Virginia

Virginia homeowners who make the change to solar energy can enjoy a 30% federal income tax credit (ITC) that lets them recover a portion of their investment. Because Virginia law allows municipalities to exempt solar power from being counted on your property taxes, you not only save on state taxes, your home is likely worth more than one without solar power. Virginia also offers a net metering program where you can feed excess energy generated by your solar panels and get credited on your bill for it. Any excess generation can be carried over from one year to the next.

Virginia Solar Energy Resource Hub

From the charming Chesapeake Bay to the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains, Virginia receives four-plus hours of peak sunlight each day, which is enough to generate solar energy for the average home. And while peak sunlight hours are important, your solar panels collect and generate energy during off-peak hours and even on cloudy and snowy days too.

The technology of solar panels in Virginia, and in general, is at peak efficiency. Panel design is sleek, practical and modern, made to blend seamlessly with your roof. These improvements in efficiency and design are part of the reason solar power in Virginia has become so affordable. When you consider the affordability of solar panels, the 30% federal income tax credit, and rising rates for electricity, it’s easy to see how solar power can reduce your bill.

Don’t Rent Your Power, Own Your Power

While electricity costs in Virginia are slightly lower than the national average, those rates aren’t likely to remain low. In fact, national rates for electricity have increased over 50% in the past 15 years. Solar power can become an essential energy resource for your home. Which means, the sooner you start using solar energy, the more rate hikes you can avoid and the more money you’ll save.

With the reduced price of solar panel installation and the panels’ increase in efficiency, a solar panel system is your best protection against hikes in your energy bills. When you have a solar energy system installed by POWERHOME Solar, sudden changes in the energy market will have less of an effect on your bill. Solar energy is renewable, efficient and clean. Because of this, when you install solar panels to generate energy for your home, your energy bills remain lower for the life of your solar panel system.

When installed properly, solar panels will not damage your roof. They will turn your roof into an energy generator for your home. In addition to being a Virginia solar panel company, we are also a roofing company. Because we are experts in both, you can be sure that when we install your solar panels, they will be installed correctly with no damage to your roof.
Will My Solar Panels Work in Winter?

Although solar panels work best during peak sunlight hours, as long as sunlight reaches your solar panels, they generate power. No matter if it is cold, cloudy, snowy, or rainy. Also, when the weather is cold, your panels may work more efficiently, since they do not experience an energy loss due to heat. The snow often reflects light, which also improves the overall efficiency of your solar panels. If your solar energy system is covered with too much snow, however, this will temporarily affect its energy production.
