Vivint Solar, a full-service residential solar provider, has expanded availability of its solar energy systems into Virginia.
“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,” said 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.”
According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, Virginia generates just 0.09 percent of its electricity from solar energy, underscoring a great opportunity for rooftop solar in the state. Governor McAuliffe recently signed clean energy legislation to promote the use of solar and other renewable energy options.
Residents in Virginia can purchase a system from Vivint Solar outright or finance the purchase with monthly payments, either through one of the institutions Vivint Solar has relationships with or their preferred lender. 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.
As part of each sale, Vivint Solar designs and installs the system, allowing customers to enjoy the benefits of affordable, renewable solar energy. Vivint Solar has deep installation expertise, having completed over 100,000 installations throughout the United States.
Vivint Solar now operates in 20 states (Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Vermont and Virginia).
