Solar energy helps homeowners manage their utility bills. Using solar with backup storage (batteries and/or generators) provides backup power and security when the grid is unreliable. Southern View Energy has been providing safe and cost-effective solar photovoltaic (PV) electric system design and installation services to homeowners throughout Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina since 2009. From start to finish, we will guide you through the details required to make your solar energy investment a success.
The reasons why solar energy makes sense for homeowners:
Reduces your power bill
Using the solar energy generated on your roof or grounds drives down your electrical bill from the moment the system is turned on and it insulates you from increases in future energy costs. Residential electric rates are increasing and this trend is expected to continue over the coming years.
The federal 30% tax incentive defrays the cost for those with tax liability. The tax credit is a dollar-for-dollar credit – the money you would have spent on taxes pays for a portion of your solar installation. If you do not have enough tax liability in the year you install, it rolls into the next year until it is depleted.

Weather related or power company related, the grid is not always reliable. Families prefer to have lights and outlets working, the ability to charge their phones and computers, and the food in their fridges and freezers kept unspoiled. Solar with backup enables you to have power until the grid is restored.
clean energy source
Solar power is a clean, quiet energy source, reducing dependence on fossil fuels. It manages your carbon footprint, allowing you to achieve a more sustainable lifestyle.
added resale value
Solar is a transferrable asset that adds value to your home for resale. Wouldn’t you prefer a home that has lower utility bills?
