Dominion expects bills to rise to pay for renewable mandates

Never before has switching to solar been this much of a no-brainer!

Dominion Energy recorded profits of $1.4B in 2019. In May, they announced customers can expect their rates to increase by an average of 3% per year over the next decade. This additional cost is, in part, to finance the 24,000 megawatt expansion of offshore wind, solar, and energy storage capacity.

Dominion ratepayers WILL either be forced to foot the bill for the State to switch to renewable energy or they can TAKE THE POWER BACK, make the switch on their own terms, and earn a ROI on their monthly power costs all while increasing the value of their home.

With a $0 down low interest solar loan (1.49%), you can go solar for the same cost that you're currently spending with the utility.

Did we mention some Virginia counties have a property tax exemption for solar?!

Customers of Dominion Energy Virginia can expect their bills to increase by an average of about 3% annually over the next 10 years as the company changes its generation mix to comply with new renewable energy mandates.

Today we visited our install at Little Tree Huggers LLC Here's some information about the preschool from the owners:

Little Tree Huggers Preschool (LTH) is the National Capital Region's first bilingual nature based preschool whose mission is sustainability. Lia D. Johnson is our founder and Director, with over 30 years experience in early childhood education. We are in the process of growing to impact the lives of hundreds of more children and families with our award-winning sustainability curriculum and our hope would be for our rain or shine outdoor learning environment to be accessible to as many children as possible! As early as 2016, LTH started being recognized by the community for our dedication and commitment to environmental education and innovative sustainability practices. We also set the example by installing geothermal heating and cooling, an extensive 48 panel solar array, and various other energy efficiency solutions to make LTH carbon neutral over the years! An average day has the children spending 75% of the time, rain or shine, observing over 20 native birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and insects needing help due to loss of habitat as well as helping out on the working farm!

A lot on their property has been repurposed, they truly follow the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle mission! Even their cars are old vintage repurposed vehicles, pretty neat!

For more information, check out their website and this YouTube clip!

We are back today with another Wednesday Team Feature! Meet our newest team member, Marcelo! Here's Marcelo's story in his own words:

"I got my start in the solar industry in 2008 having one of the best summers of my life as an intern at the Solar Living Institute in Hopland, CA. We slept in tents, worked in yurts, tended a beautiful garden, assisted with sustainable living workshops (primarily solar), and really got to experience a truly sustainable and simple lifestyle. In 2009, I started with SunRun, which at the time had only a few hundred installations, and a crew of less than 20 employees. In 2011, I moved to Hawaii to work with Revolusun, and from there have done solar work with amazing companies across the U.S., in Colorado, Florida, California, Louisiana, and now Virginia. From time to time I have stepped away from solar to work for companies like Tesla Motors and Udemy, work on organic farms, and travel, but have always come back to my first love, solar! These days I spend as much time as possible with my 2 year old, and get outside whenever I can."

Jonathan Scott's Power Trip

Happy Tuesday friends!

https://www.powertriptruth.com/

We wanted to share a documentary that we are really excited about; Jonathan Scott's Power Trip. Jonathan Scott (HGTV’s Property Brothers) travelled the country speaking to those advocating for and fighting against expanding access to ownership of solar energy systems. It discusses the issues that face not only our industry, but also the nation’s energy sector as a whole. It may provide additional context on how your choice to switch to solar energy is a win-win-win for the environment, our country, and your family’s bottom line. It’s scheduled to air this Monday 11/16 on PBS at 10pm. Our DVR's are set!!

Jonathan said it best-
"What's preventing everybody from having this"?

Green energy leads new US generating capacity in 2020 - Electrek

Can the US source 100% of its energy needs from renewable energy? YES! The transition is already taking place, but do you believe we're heading away from fossil fuels quick enough?

"Green energy made up 57% of the new capacity added during the first six months of 2020. That means green energy now makes up 23% of the US' total available installed generating capacity".

FERC's June 2020 Energy Infrastructure Update reports that green energy dominated new US electrical generating capacity additions in the first half of 2020.

Two-Thirds of New Global Power Generation Capacity Came From Solar and Wind in 2019

Solar accounted for nearly half of all new worldwide power generation in 2019. Despite all the new generation coming online, solar still only accounts for roughly 3% of worldwide electricity, up from 0.2% in 2010. More and more studies are concluding that decarbonizing the economy is a necessary step in the fight against climate change.

We couldn’t be more proud to be on the front lines of that fight by helping home and business owners make the switch to solar energy.

Our $0 down financing option allows anyone to make the switch without increasing their monthly expenses. Call us today to learn more!

Solar is now the fourth-largest source of power-generation capacity worldwide, having overtaken wind, according to BloombergNEF.

Be proud solar owners! Your electricity is cheaper. This family was so proud that they named their array WATSON! Here are some photos taken at an open house back when we could still hug openly. Zoom in on these electric bills. June-July vs. when WATSON started doing 100% of their annual usage. Including powering their Volt EV! After the event, the owners took our team on a tour of their farm. They have about a dozen fruit tree species and an amazing spot down by the creek. Here is a shot of our VP with the owner of WATSON. Cheers happy solar people!

Prospect solar installed my 12.7kw system in Aug 2019. I love my solar system and its very addicting to see how much power is generating. Also I love that I have more self-reliance and not dependent on grid energy. Prospect was great. Very professional and effcient. The one thing I should warn that if you live in VA- if your system is 15KW or higher - dominion will charge a stand by fee. It is not easy to understand how they get the fee as they manually calculate. So keep you system at 14.9kw or below in VA. This standby fee can really detract from your savings. The other good news is that if you live in Fairfax county you get deduct part of the costs of your system from your property tax... You can google it. It was a signficant saving.
Prospect Solar just completed an installation of 32 panels at Little Tree Huggers Preschool and the team was awesome! The whole process was straightforward and everyone on the team was exceedingly professional: From Tom and Mike's personalized attention to the installation crew, it was clearly one of the most professional upgrades we have done to our property! Thank you!
Hi. I have been calling for days (last week and this week) and no one answers. I have left voice messages. I have also emailed. I have an inverter down on my system. The company that installed it went out of business. The tech for that company now works for you. If he would contact me, I could get my system back up and running. Thank you.
