Solar power FAQs

  • Yes. Solar power can be an excellent investment if you want to power your home with clean energy and save on electricity costs. Connect with a SaveOnEnergy solar advisor to get a savings estimate today by calling the number on your screen. 

  • Yes and no. There are solar incentives available in Virginia, but not a state-level tax credit. Virginia solar owners can apply for the federal Residential Clean Energy Credit and for a state property tax exemption. Check your city’s government website for additional Virginia solar programs in your area. 

  • No. Any company or salesperson advertising a free solar panel program in Virginia is a consumer scam. Before signing any contract, check customer reviews and evaluate a company’s reputation, services, and terms. Also, ensure the company has your state’s required licenses and certifications. 

  • You can save thousands in electricity costs after owning your solar system for several decades. You could recover the installation costs of your system in about 12.5 years, based on the average electricity bill in Virginia ($166.40). Solar panels can last over 30 years and are a long-term investment.
