Our very first project won Interfaith Power & Light’s National Renewable Role Model award for our first-of-its-kind crowdfunding program with non-profits. Faced with unprecedented demand in the state, we worked with partners to launch the first solar job training and apprenticeship program in West Virginia—bringing jobs and opportunities to the coalfields. Now, all across West Virginia, our teams of trained and talented electricians and installers are building beautiful solar systems that are remaking our state.
So we know that you’ve got questions–from the tech to the finances to how the utilities react.
That’s why we’re here to help.
With Solar Holler, you can lock in your cost of power for the next 20 years–protecting you from the utility price hikes that happen year after year. While our aim is to have your monthly solar payments be less than your savings, mileage will vary based on your roof, shading, and utility.
We’ve got different loan options based on what your family needs–from 20 years at 3.99% to 10 years at 2.99%. And you can pay it off at any time without penalty. Our financing does require a 650 minimum credit score.
We do two things: an in-depth utility bill analysis to figure out exactly what you are paying per kWh for your energy; and we build a precise 3D model of your home, trees, and chimneys. We run a simulation of where the sun will be every hour of the year and mash that up with sunlight and climate data for your zip code. The end result is an incredibly accurate projection of what your system will produce in the coming decades.
Yes you will. By being connected to the power grid, you’ll have power whenever you need it. You’ll just pay your monthly customer fee and the extra kWh you bought from the utility.
For homeowners, the biggest incentive is a federal tax credit for 26% of the cost of your solar system. That comes back as an additional refund on your tax return in April.
Your panels will produce electricity to use in your home–reducing what you buy from the utility. At the end of every month, your new bill will say how many kWh you sold and bought–you just pay the difference.
