Freedom Solar residential installations cost an average of $38,000. This price includes a 9.1-kilowatt system, labor and project management costs (such as inspections and permitting).

Raleigh is a great city to go solar! Raleigh sees about 213 sunny days per year — higher than the national average. Residents in Raleigh are also eligible to apply for a number of North Carolina-based rebates and incentives.

No, solar panels will not increase your property taxes in Raleigh — or anywhere in North Carolina, for that matter. North Carolina offers a 100% property tax exemption for residential solar installations. After you install solar panels, your home’s value will increase — but your property taxes will not.

Absolutely. Solar panels generate a significant amount of power, greatly reducing your monthly electricity bill. The more you typically pay for electricity, the more you’ll save.

Your solar panels may affect your home insurance. Since solar panels add value to your home, you’ll likely need to increase your insurance policy — that way, your solar panels are covered in the event of an accident. You’ll also want to be sure to check your policy to ensure that solar panels are covered (they typically are) and review the instances in which your insurer will pay out for damage.

Home Battery Backup Systems

Backup power is a system that connects to electricity sources, typically solar panels and the electric grid, to store excess power and return it to your home when you need it, generally because of a power outage during an emergency. In most cases, your backup power supply will come from a generator or a battery. Today’s solar batteries are also intelligent energy management systems that can optimize your home’s energy usage to take advantage of utility time-of-use plans or to ensure that your electric car is charged with solar power.

Backup Power Systems We Offer:

  • Solar battery backup power systems including Tesla Powerwall
  • Home generators
