MOV Community Solar I

MOV Community Solar I

In May 2016, Pickering Energy Solutions (Parkersburg, WV) and Mountain View Solar (Berkeley Springs, WV) kicked off the areas first solar electric system bulk buying program called the “Mid-Ohio Valley Community Solar I”. Our goal was simple – to reach out and bring the community together around residential solar. The program will provide informational sessions, free solar site assessments, discounted price on residential solar electric installation, and support of a community non-profit.

How the program works:

  1. The program officially begins July 1st and will run through December 31st, 2016.
  2. Interested and qualified candidates receive a free solar site assessment to gather system design details.
  3. Based on the site assessment, Mountain View Solar will provide a system proposal to the participant. If the participant decides to proceed, the purchase agreement is signed with a $1,500 cash discount ($1,000 plus $500 surge protector) applied immediately and installs the system before the end of the program term.
  4. At that point a solar panel donation is made, on behalf of the participant, to the Habitat for Humanity of the Mid-Ohio Valley for a future solar electric system.
  5. Solar Electric installations must be completed by December 31, 2016.
  6. System owners are also entitled to the 30% Federal Tax Credit for renewable energy system installations.
