Vivint Solar Inc., a full-service residential solar provider, says it has now expanded availability of its solar energy systems into Virginia.
According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, Virginia generates just 0.09% of its electricity from solar energy, underscoring a great opportunity for rooftop solar in the state. Recognizing this, Gov. Terry McAuliffe recently signed clean energy legislation to promote the use of solar and other renewable energy options.
“We applaud Virginia’s commitment to grow its clean energy sector and are thrilled to bring Vivint Solar’s affordable solar energy services to this promising market,” says David Bywater, CEO of Vivint Solar. “With Vivint Solar, Virginia residents can take their first step toward energy independence and do so in a way that can benefit their wallets and the environment.”
Vivint Solar says residents in Virginia can purchase a system outright or finance the purchase with monthly payments, either through one of the institutions Vivint Solar has relationships with or their preferred lender. The solar provider says customers will also be eligible to apply for any applicable utility-sponsored rebates and federal tax credits. Virginia residents who wish to install solar energy systems can interconnect to the grid under traditional net metering.
Having already completed over 100,000 installations throughout the U.S., Vivint Solar will design and install the system as part of each sale.
