What’s the cost of NOT going solar?

Let’s say you have an electric bill of $150/month. Without solar, you will pay the power company at least $36,000 over the next 20 years! With solar, you own your power instead of renting it from the utility. Also, if you decide to sell your home, you can expect a higher selling price with solar.

Reduce your dependence on the grid!

Ever been in the middle of watching TV or cooking a meal and the power goes out? Not a great experience, right? With a LightWave Solar + storage system, you will have reliable power no matter what’s happening with the grid. If the grid goes down, you won’t even notice the lights flicker. Your stored solar energy will kick in immediately! Now that’s what we call peace of mind.

Solar is cleaner & Renewable.

Solar energy slashes your emissions! An average system generates about 10,000 kilowatt-hours annually which reduces your carbon footprint equal to planting 6 acres of forests! You’ll also reduce air pollutants like sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and particulate matter. If you want to do your part and use cleaner energy, then installing a LightWave Solar system is the logical next step!

What Does it Cost?

LightWave builds custom systems, and many variables affect the cost of solar (such as how many panels, number of batteries, roof-mounted panels or ground-mounted panels, etc.) We can provide an estimated cost range for typical solar + storage systems:

Cost before tax credit:

$45,000 – $70,000

Cost after tax credit:

$33,300 – $51,800

How It Works

Power your home during the day with solar panels and use stored energy from lithium-ion batteries at night and during grid failures.

Everyday Power.

On ordinary days, your solar + storage system will help power your home. A mobile app will provide insight into your energy use so you can maximize your solar generation. Extra solar goes directly into your lithium ion batteries for when you need it – day or night! The grid serves as your backup.

Backup Power.

In the event of a grid outage, your home will automatically draw electric power from your solar + storage system. Your mobile app will notify you of the grid outage, and you can keep an eye on your energy use and battery charge level. Your batteries will recharge when the sun rises the next day!

What about net metering?

There is no net metering in our area which means the utility will not buy excess solar energy at retail rates. If you aren’t ready to make such a large investment, we can install solar first and batteries later. With LightWave Solar, you can always expand your system or add battery storage in the future!

Other Things You Should Know:

  • Lithium-ion batteries have 10-year warranties and require virtually no maintenance.
  • Your home will still be connected to the grid for times when you use more power than you are generating or have stored.
  • Our systems can provide whole home backup, partial home backup, and critical loads backup, depending on your home’s existing electrical configuration.
  • LightWave Solar is certified to install many brands of batteries including LG Chem, Sonnen, Iron Edison & Tesla Powerwall.
  • A mobile app provides unprecedented insight and control over your home’s energy use. You will have the tools to manage your energy future.

Get Higher Production & Improved Performance.

This install provides flexibility that roof mounts can’t. We can orient the panels due south at the perfect pitch to maximize sunlight exposure, and install ground-mounted panels that have better air flow. These advantages create a higher performing solar system!

Get all the perks that come with a regular ground mount & then some! You can create a sleek, modern carport for parking or a canopy for just relaxing on your patio/porch. For added style points, you can opt for a translucent solar panel.
