Types of Residential Installations
Installing solar at your home harnesses the sun’s power to lower your energy bills, help the environment, and provide you with a resilient energy source when combined with a battery backup system. Our experts analyze the logistics of your situation and determine the best way to install a solar system at your home.
We have staying power within an ever-evolving solar installation market. Our long history of satisfied customers stretches back to 2012, when we started out as GRNE Solar.
One of the most common residential installations, a pitched roof mount is attached to your rafters or joists, sealed, and placed under the flashing.
If you have a flat roof, we can use ballasted mounts to anchor down the modules without penetrating the membrane of your roof or a penetration seal system with no flashing required.
Typically installed on properties with a lot of space, ground mount arrays are installed facing directly south to maximize production.
We have saved so much by going solar! It’s really been exciting for us.

Federal Income Tax Credit
Taxpayers may be able to claim a tax credit on their Federal Income Tax return of 30% for qualified expenditures on a solar system that provides electricity to their residence. Individual tax credits may be possible to carry forward to offset future tax liabilities if there is insufficient tax liability in the solar system’s first year of operation. Consult your tax advisor to determine whether this credit is available to you and for what amount.
