Solar panels

This was the first time I had experience with solar systems. I am very pleased at the outcome of the process, expenses saved thus far (lower electric bill by at least half and that was not a complete month on the sysstem yet) and the expected savings I believe I will get. Walter Benda was our installer and he was extremely thorough with all the paperwork, the work involved and even the follow up after the system was in place. He is extremely knowledgeable about solar systems and very professional. I would recommend him again and again.

Go Solar

Blue Ridge Sun did a great job helping me estimate my energy usage and then providing me with the correct size grid-tie unit. The photovoltaic system provides us with all we need and just a little more that helps displace coal power. The job was done on time and at the cost estimated. Good Work!

Thank you Blue Ridge!

I had no idea how to get started in solar power. The folks at Blue Ridge Sun perform an analysis of your needs, location and provide you with options based on budget and performance expectations. They kept me informed of progress and took care of it all. Great job guys!

Highly recommend for any solar project

This is the second project I have had Blue Ridge Sun do for me. The first project, completed in 2010, was a 18 module 4.0 KW system with Enphase microinverters. These have been functioning great and dramatically reduced my power bill, but I decided I also needed power back-up when the grid was down. After consulting Blue Ridge Sun, I contracted to add 12 more modules with an Outback FlexPower 48 volt battery back-up system. I'm very happy with the results and the peace of mind knowing critical loads, such as the water pump and refrigerator, will still be functioning when there is a power outage. Blue Ridge Sun has been wonderful to work with and I would highly recommend them for any solar project.

All work was completed on schedule and at agreed upon cost. Blue Ridge Sun coordinated almost everything to ensure I was able to qualify for over $ 6,600 rebate through the Virginia Solar and Wind Incentive Program. Will also be able to use 30% of the total project cost as a federal tax credit, so net costs to me for this project are very reasonable.<br />
