SOLAR in the COMMUNITY
We help Appalachian churches, charities, nonprofits, and municipalities mine the sun for clean, affordable energy, leveraging community investment for decades to come
how solar helps West Virginian Churches, charities & Nonprofits
Your community is already a great place to live, work, play, and raise children. Why not empower the groups and organizations that form the fabric of our communities to go further faster? Every dollar saved is a dollar spent on making our hometowns safer, happier, and healthier.
When organizations own their own solar panels, power bills go down. When the sun is out, the panels produce electricity, wires carry the electricity to an inverter (the electrical brains), and the power produced spins your meter backwards –reducing the amount you buy from the utility. It's like owning a personal power plant.
Of course there's more to it, but that's why we're here. Have questions? Just ask us.
solar within reach
We started with a nationally recognized endeavor that solarized the roof of a Shepherdstown church, we understand that solar is further out of reach for organizations that can't take advantage of tax credits, due to nonprofit status.
That's why we've taken an innovative approach to financing, with ownership, or off-balance-sheet treatments. We'll consult with your organization or municipality, to put together the right combination of funding options to make solar a reality; and one within reach for everyone in the communities we call home.
Are you part of such a group or organization? Our consultation, proposals, and assessments for usage-reduction programs –like high efficiency lighting upgrades– are free.
the best in solar equipment
We only use the best equipment. It's the only thing acceptable when we're building a system that's going to last a generation. For the panels themselves, we work with the talented engineers at Panasonic, LG, and Samsung (S-Energy). Every panel we install is backed by a 25 year warranty from a large company that has stood the test of time. The inverters (the electrical brains of your solar system) are manufactured by SolarEdge. They're the largest inverter providers in America, with the best technology. That allows each Solar Holler system to get more power from each panel, and gives homeowners the ability to see how each individual panel is performing. Solar Holler is proud to offer a 10 year workmanship warranty on all installations.
Interested in batteries for when the grid goes down? We work with LG Chem to deploy the latest in sleek battery technology.
