● Welcome / Introductions
● Solar basics
● Q&A with LEAP, PEC and the Solarize Installers
An clean energy initiative organized by The Piedmont Environmental
Council and the Local Energy Alliance Program.
What is Solarize Piedmont?
Solarize is a one-stop-shop for
residents to learn more about
solar power options for their
homes and facilitate the
installation and financing of their
own project.
www.solarizeva.org
It’s a good deal – and it’s easier than going it alone
• Vetted contractors - experience, certifications, warranties
• Discounted, fixed pricing (bulk-purchasing price, competitively bid)
• Turn-key, standardized package
• LEAP staff do the all the homework and support you through the process
Why sign up for a Solarize program?
www.solarizeva.org
How it Works
Step 1: Sign up at www.solarizeva.org
• LEAP staff performs satellite assessment and contacts you with results
• Submit a recent electric bill
• Schedule an energy efficiency consultation (optional)
• Attend a Solarize program info session (optional)
Then, if your property is a good candidate
• Consultation by installer who will assess your site and develop a
proposal
• Proposal approval: sign contract with installer
• Permits, installation, utility connection, inspections
• Enjoy watching your meter spin backwards!
www.solarizeva.org
As of the beginning of 2020, 412 contracts totaling more than 4MW of
solar capacity and valued at over $9.5 million have been signed.
Solarize Results
Who Can Sign Up?
• Solarize Piedmont is for residents, organizations, and businesses
within the campaign area: Albemarle, Charlottesville, Clarke,
Culpeper, Fauquier, Greene, Loudoun, Madison, Orange and
Rappahannock.
• If you live outside of this area, we may still serve you. Please
contact info@solarizenova.org for more information.
www.solarizeva.org
Energy Efficiency
Energy efficiency typically is the most cost-effective, most available
clean energy resource. A good PV installer will always encourage you
to pursue efficiency first – so that you are “renewable ready”. LEAP
promotes and facilitates EE improvements with affordable energy
assessments for your home or business.

Solar Basics
• Panel installation generally takes 1-3 days, but the entire process
(including system design, permitting, interconnection) takes 6-12 weeks.
• System Components:
• Photovoltaic Panels
• “Balance of System” equipment
such as mounting hardware,
inverter, cables and meters
• Productive life of 25+ years with minimal
maintenance
• Photo = Light; Voltaic = Electricity
• When light strikes the silicon semiconductor, an electron
is knocked loose.
• The electrons then flow along a circuit and are
directed to an inverter.
www.solarizeva.org
www.solarizeva.org
Panel Installation
www.solarizeva.org
• Converts Direct Current (DC) electricity from
solar panels into Alternating Current
electricity, which powers your home.
• When shading conditions exist, installers may
recommend microinverters or DC optimizers
in lieu of central inverters, which allow arrays
with some shading to increase energy
production.
www.solarizeva.org
Put it all together…
Net Metering
*Graphic from Dominion Power
What is Net Metering? a metering and billing agreement between a
utility and a customer that facilitates connecting PV systems to the
power grid. A new meter is installed that measures two-way flow of
electricity. The energy your system makes is first used on site. When your
solar system is making more electricity than you are using at the time,
the excess electricity is recorded by the meter as it flows back
into the grid and is credited against future electricity use.
www.solarizeva.org
Tax Credits
Federal Tax Credit:
• 26% of total install cost - credited to your federal income tax bill
• This is a credit – not a rebate. You must owe federal income tax in order to
be credited back.
• One’s credit balance can rollover to subsequent years.

HOAs & Solar Systems
“Our report concludes that
HOAs have limited ability to
restrict rooftop installations. In
instances where disputes
proceed to litigation, Virginia
law allows homeowners to
recover reasonable attorney’s
fees and costs.”

  • 3. The Piedmont Environmental Council ♦ Local Energy Alliance Program Installers Here With Us: Tim Heltzel Solar Design Specialist Sam Linton Project Manager / Lead Installer
  • 4. The Piedmont Environmental Council ♦ Local Energy Alliance Program Game Plan for Today’s Webinar ● Welcome / Introductions ● Solar basics ● Q&A with LEAP, PEC and the Solarize Installers
  • 5. An clean energy initiative organized by The Piedmont Environmental Council and the Local Energy Alliance Program. What is Solarize Piedmont? Solarize is a one-stop-shop for residents to learn more about solar power options for their homes and facilitate the installation and financing of their own project. www.solarizeva.org
  • 6. It’s a good deal – and it’s easier than going it alone • Vetted contractors - experience, certifications, warranties • Discounted, fixed pricing (bulk-purchasing price, competitively bid) • Turn-key, standardized package • LEAP staff do the all the homework and support you through the process Why sign up for a Solarize program? www.solarizeva.org
  • 7. How it Works Step 1: Sign up at www.solarizeva.org • LEAP staff performs satellite assessment and contacts you with results • Submit a recent electric bill • Schedule an energy efficiency consultation (optional) • Attend a Solarize program info session (optional) Then, if your property is a good candidate • Consultation by installer who will assess your site and develop a proposal • Proposal approval: sign contract with installer • Permits, installation, utility connection, inspections • Enjoy watching your meter spin backwards! www.solarizeva.org
  • 8. As of the beginning of 2020, 412 contracts totaling more than 4MW of solar capacity and valued at over $9.5 million have been signed. Solarize Results
  • 9. Who Can Sign Up? • Solarize Piedmont is for residents, organizations, and businesses within the campaign area: Albemarle, Charlottesville, Clarke, Culpeper, Fauquier, Greene, Loudoun, Madison, Orange and Rappahannock. • If you live outside of this area, we may still serve you. Please contact info@solarizenova.org for more information. www.solarizeva.org
  • 10. Energy Efficiency Energy efficiency typically is the most cost-effective, most available clean energy resource. A good PV installer will always encourage you to pursue efficiency first – so that you are “renewable ready”. LEAP promotes and facilitates EE improvements with affordable energy assessments for your home or business. Email: info@leap-va.org Reduce & Produce!
  • 12. Solar Basics • Panel installation generally takes 1-3 days, but the entire process (including system design, permitting, interconnection) takes 6-12 weeks. • System Components: • Photovoltaic Panels • “Balance of System” equipment such as mounting hardware, inverter, cables and meters • Productive life of 25+ years with minimal maintenance • Photo = Light; Voltaic = Electricity • When light strikes the silicon semiconductor, an electron is knocked loose. • The electrons then flow along a circuit and are directed to an inverter. www.solarizeva.org
  • 15. • Converts Direct Current (DC) electricity from solar panels into Alternating Current electricity, which powers your home. • When shading conditions exist, installers may recommend microinverters or DC optimizers in lieu of central inverters, which allow arrays with some shading to increase energy production. www.solarizeva.org
  • 16. Put it all together…
  • 17. Net Metering *Graphic from Dominion Power What is Net Metering? a metering and billing agreement between a utility and a customer that facilitates connecting PV systems to the power grid. A new meter is installed that measures two-way flow of electricity. The energy your system makes is first used on site. When your solar system is making more electricity than you are using at the time, the excess electricity is recorded by the meter as it flows back into the grid and is credited against future electricity use. www.solarizeva.org
  • 18. Tax Credits Federal Tax Credit: • 26% of total install cost - credited to your federal income tax bill • This is a credit – not a rebate. You must owe federal income tax in order to be credited back. • One’s credit balance can rollover to subsequent years. www.solarizeva.org
  • 19.

  • 22. HOAs & Solar Systems “Our report concludes that HOAs have limited ability to restrict rooftop installations. In instances where disputes proceed to litigation, Virginia law allows homeowners to recover reasonable attorney’s fees and costs.” https://reisingergooch.com/solar-benefits/
  • 23. A Happy Solar Customer: Lazaro Home • 14 Sunpower Panels: 4.5kW system • Paid $3.74/Watt (Solarize Leesburg 2014) • 6,535 kWh output = $719 earned in 2015 • Installed for $16,830: $11,781 after rebate. • 16 yr. payback: 6.25% average annual rate of return over 16 years. www.solarizeva.org
