Adding Charlotte to the Family, Freedom Solar Power Expands into its Second North Carolina Market
November 15, 2022
Freedom Solar Expands into the Third Fastest Growing Major City in the US
Buzzing with anticipation, Freedom Solar is happy to plant its roots deep in the Hornets’ Nest bringing over 15 years of experience, installing 157 cumulative megawatts – the highest of any Master Dealer of SunPower technology – and partnering for a sustainable future with 15,000 customers to date. Charlotte is Freedom Solar’s second market in NC, adding to a total of eleven in the country, with big plans for the coming years as solar energy adoption continues to grow.
We hope to educate North Carolina residents about how easy it is to harness clean, affordable, reliable energy from the sun when you are working with two of the most trusted brands in the industry. Freedom Solar allows “Charlotteans” to invest in North Carolina’s first and only Master Dealer of solar systems from SunPower®, one of the most trusted solar panel brands in the industry known for the best-in-class product quality, performance, longevity and value.
We understand the importance of protecting your investment. Upfront expense is the primary reason Americans do not purchase solar panels for their homes. Our end-to-end in-house operations and service is unique in the Charlotte market, ensuring all systems and technology are covered under one hassle-free 25-year warranty. Freedom Solar recently deployed a survey analyzing the sentiments of Charlotte and Raleigh homeowners and found that those who already adopted solar energy believed warranty is the most important factor when selecting a solar panel provider, not upfront cost.
In the same survey, 69% of respondents considered upfront cost as the biggest concern to purchasing solar; however, 51% of respondents were not aware of current or future tax credits derived from North Carolina legislation or the recently passed federal Inflation Reduction Act. Programs like the Inflation Reduction Act offer 30% tax credits for solar or renewable energy installations, without even taking additional local and state incentives into consideration. With the average solar installation in the U.S. costing approximately $20,000, that could mean a $6,000 tax credit for households. Take a look at the clean energy benefits the Inflation Reduction Act helps with before ruling out attaining energy independence, making the switch to solar during the prime of incentives could save you money both short and long term.
“As a native North Carolinian, we deserve a reliable solar provider that puts people first, shoots straight, exhibits pride in quality workmanship, and stands behind their product and workmanship in every state we serve,” said Chip Phillips, Charlotte Area Sales Manager. “I am thrilled for Freedom Solar to launch in the Piedmont and provide our neighbors with best-in-class service and cutting-edge systems to achieve energy independence for local homeowners and leave this world better than we found it.”
As always, we like to let our customers do the talking. Hear from a few NC residents who are living more freely with solar energy:
I chose to go solar because I wanted to hedge against rising electricity costs and save money by going net zero. It was a no-brainer to go solar!Marcos

“Trying to save money on electricity and doing better for the environment was our motivation for going solar. Freedom Solar has made getting solar almost effortless. The friendliness of the staff has solidified the feeling that I picked the right company.”Jeffrey

With North Carolina’s commitment to green energy being one of the strongest in the nation, Freedom Solar is excited to offer North Carolinians the chance to invest in a reliable product backed by excellent customer service that is good for the environment. Freedom Solar’s panels have saved over 1.7 billion pounds of CO2 from the atmosphere – the same environmental benefit as taking approximately 167,000 cars off the road. Freedom Solar promises only the best for the Queen City, and deliver, it will!
