Norfolk FAQs

The solar investment tax credit (ITC) is a federal incentive available for anyone making the switch to solar power. The ITC helps you save 30% on your total project cost if it was installed between 2022 and 2032. It then decreases to 22% in 2034.

While Virginia itself doesn’t offer a solar tax credit, you can still take advantage of city-level solar incentives and rebates.

As of 2021, a Freedom Solar customer can expect to spend an average of $38,000 for a 9.1-kilowatt (kW) residential system. This cost includes equipment such as SunPower solar panels, labor, permitting, and inspections from homeowners associations (HOAs)

Federal incentives as well as local rebates and incentives will further lower your total cost once they go into effect.

Solar panels increase your home’s resale price with a return on investment (ROI) that’s higher than most other types of home improvements. You can expect your residence to increase in value with a solar photovoltaic (PV) system.

No. You might produce enough solar energy to power your home on your own, you can’t be completely off-grid without a battery backup for house.

However, you can still buy a battery for home backup power in the event of a power outage from a hurricane or winter storm.

Virginia is rapidly increasing solar industry projects. Norfolk specifically has the largest number of solar installations in the state.  

Thanks to local net metering programs, Virginia utility companies will buy back electricity.

Solar panels typically require little maintenance, but it’s still an essential part of owning a solar panel system.

Maintaining your solar panels — which includes routine cleaning — will keep their efficiency at top-rated performance levels, and also increase their lifespan. And in terms of maximizing energy output, clearing dirt, debris, snow, and more will make a significant difference. 

Contact our solar repair and maintenance service department to assist you with cleaning and other forms of maintenance such as repairs and inspections.

There is a possibility that your solar panels will increase the cost of your home insurance since they add value to your home. However, this is dependent on your homeowners policy. 

Homeowners’ policies usually rate their premiums according to the value of the house, so in the event of an accident, your home is adequately covered. Therefore your insurance policy will likely increase to match the increased value of your home. 

Own Solar and Save

Stop renting electricity. Make your own clean power and get short-term and long-term financial benefits while helping protect the environment. Local, state, and federal incentives will make your system even more affordable.

Home Battery Backup Systems

Backup Power Systems We Offer:

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.
