Cool Solar panels in VA: How hard is it to get? - October 28, 2016, 02:07 PM

I was looking at solar pannels at my DC house, and mentioned to the agent that this would work better at my vacation house in Va because the amount of sun and shit.
He told me that it is hard to get solar in Va because of the laws regarding energy.

Anyone have it and know what the deal is ?

Net metering is still available in VA.

The issue is the lack of state and local incentives in VA. That is the majority of the issue. That is why you see disproportionately more solar in MD (i.e. taxpayer subsides of them).

You can get solar in VA Von, but as Black said outside of Federal clean energy rebates there will be little else to subsidize the cost.

The county the house is located may have some small sort of tax credit. State rebates in VA are sparse.

Basically be prepared to foot the the entire bill yourself.

Fast forward to 5 minutes. Amazing. He eliminated the biggest aesthetic drawback of solar https://youtu.be/dRqSkR4ENAg

He has gotten very rich via Solar City. Good for him, but the reality is that solar isn't viable and does not reduce grid size/complexity/necessity until such point the batteries become cost effective and more available.

Thin film solar "roof shingles" aren't very efficient as we speak when it compares to the panel systems. 10 years from now, I suspect they will be very good and very efficient.

I had solar city check my house out in DC (not facing east or west) but they did not do Va at all...now i know...no incentives.

It felt almost like a rip off to get them to do the free install and everything then have a 20 year hold on your house...
