Choosing a Full System Installation
If you already know you’re only interested in custom solar homes in Northern Virginia, Sekas Homes and EDGE Energy can integrate a full system installation with your home’s plan. Your full system installation will include full design, engineering, and installation of a solar PV system on your roof. This solar system will meet NABCEP (North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners) standards, as well as be designed and supervised by a NABCEP certified Electrical Engineer.
When you elect to add solar energy to your custom home in Northern Virginia, EDGE Energy will assist you in registering your system and setting up a 2-way interconnection agreement with your power company, as well as an SREC Trade for the automatic sale of the generated Solar Renewable Energy Credits. What that means is that if your solar panels create extra energy that isn’t being used in your home, they can be sold back to the power company—and you can apply that money toward your utility costs.
The Benefits of Solar Homes in Northern Virginia
There are many benefits to choosing solar homes in Northern Virginia, including:
Environmentally friendly option – Installing solar technology for your custom home is one of the most environmentally friendly options you can make. You can greatly reduce your carbon footprint and promote green energy.
Energy credits – As previously mentioned, EDGE Energy can help you set up a 2-way interconnection agreement with your power company to receive energy credits. What this means is that when your solar panels generate energy that you don’t need for your home, the meter will measure the delivered power to your utility company so they can reimburse you with a billing credit. This can help you save money and even work toward paying back your investment.
Lower utility costs – When you’re using solar technology to power your home, you will see a significant reduction in your utility costs!
