Plus, when you work with Solar Energy World, you are not only helping protect the earth for your children and grandchildren, you’ll be helping to make a change today. We donate a portion of the profits from every installation to the GivePower™ Foundation to build solar-powered water purification farms across the world.

Plus, Save Now With 2021 Fairfax County Solar Incentives

The Virginia State Legislature recently took a critical step forward with the passage of the Virginia Clean Energy Act (VCEA), which requires 100 percent of energy from solar and other clean energy sources by 2050. 

VCEA increases the allowable size of solar installations on residential and commercial properties, removes certain unfair fees, and expands the way homeowners can use their solar energy.

Local Northern Virginia Solar Tax Credits

The State of Virginia allows counties, cities, or towns to exempt the cost of solar energy equipment, either partially or entirely, from local property taxes. As a result, Fairfax County currently offers property tax exemptions for systems used primarily for heating, cooling, and hot water that would otherwise require a conventional source of energy.

Solar Energy World helps complete all paperwork required to ensure you get the most savings with your install.

Other Incentives for Going Solar in Fairfax County, Virginia

Every spring, Fairfax County joins with the Local Energy Alliance Program (LEAP) to offer a Solarize Fairfax County campaign that allows homeowners to take advantage of free site assessments, identification of energy-saving opportunities, bulk discounts on solar equipment and installation, and community workshops.  

Solar Energy World has been named a pre-qualified solar installer for the Solarize Event.

Don’t forget the Federal Tax Credit!

Now is the time to take full advantage of the federal government’s Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC), allowing homeowners to recoup a big chunk of equipment and installation costs. 

The dollar-for-dollar credit is worth 26% of the total cost in 2021 and 2022, dropping to 22% in 2023 before sunsetting in 2024. 

Homeowners claim the credit when filing federal tax returns. A similar credit is available for businesses.

You can also sell energy produced by your owned solar system!

Virginia Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SRECs)

Virginia homeowners who own a solar system generate solar renewable energy credits (SRECs) and earn hundreds of dollars every year by selling energy to their utility. 

We calculate how much energy you are likely to generate, and we will set up an automatic system to earn and sell your Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SRECs).

Net Metering in Virginia

Homeowners and commercial property owners can use net metering to get a credit on their electric bills for excess solar energy added back to the grid for use by other utility customers. You can use credits that build up during the summer to offset higher electric bills during the winter months.   

When the federal tax is combined with net metering, SRECs, and other incentives, the savings for homeowners can be substantial.

And – Solar Energy World Offers the Solar Battery Backup Products For Your Solar Panel Installation

Never go without power!

When you add one of the best solar batteries on the market today, you no longer have to worry about running out of power, even during widespread power outages. 

When your solar system isn’t producing enough energy, you can use the electricity stored in your selected battery instead of buying it from your utility company. Adding a cutting edge-battery is easy and affordable, and the savings are significant. 

A solar battery ensures your power stays on, and you’ll never have to worry about going without electricity again.

When we install your solar panel system, we include a monitoring service so you can quickly log into a web page to see exactly how much power you’re generating in real-time.
