Residential Solar Gets Three Years and a Grandfather Clause


The Arkansas State Legislator passed Act 464 which will allow utilities to credit wholesale rates for electricity generated by residential solar during the day... while charging full retail rates for the electricity used by solar homeowners at night. 

 

GOOD NEWS - The Act includes a 20 year grandfather clause at the current equal retail rate for all residential solar systems installed before

Detailed Monitoring Ensures Your Investment Stays Productive  

  "Hi Chuck, I thought you might like to see my last 12 months of electric expenses. ($9.24 every month!) Keep in mind I'm all electric, I also keep two Chevy Volts charged and I run a dehumidifier in my storm shelter. I'm so glad I went solar. Thanks again" - Gary in Hope AR

Our Liberty Solar Home

See the consistent solar production over the nearly 10 years in service. Remember systems we install have 25 year manufacturer's warranties! When we bought our house back in 2010 we spent about the same on a kitchen remodel as we did on solar. Now our kitchen is so last decade adding no value to our home. The silent machine on the roof however has paid for itself and will provide 70% of our power for decades to come. 

- Electricity will never be obsolete

- Energy will always cost more in the future

That's why homemade solar power is the safest, long term can't loose investment available in sunny Arkansas. Our private solar power plant has proven to be our most prudent home improvement ever.

Testimonials

Sherwood

 Hi Chuck, I just wanted to tell you how pleased we are with our solar system. It has performed much better than we had expected even with an unusual amount of rain and clouds this past year. Our electric bills have been drastically cut and I actually look forward to the first of the month to see the new bill. The system has had no problems and it’s easy to forget it’s there. I do think of it on sunny days when I just have to go to the website and look at all of those kilowatt hours adding up. I am glad that you wanted to work with us to design the system to fit our house and power needs. And tell your crew we appreciated the smooth quick installation. The world needs more renewable power generation. - Richard in Sherwood, AR

Russellville

 It will soon be 5 years since LibcoSolar installed our home solar system and its performance has exceeded our expectations. Prior to our system being installed our Entergy bill averaged around $160.00 per month, now it is less than $40.00 per month. The online monitoring system allows for real time data per each panels performance and can be used to diagnose problems if needed. Outstanding system backed by an outstanding company. - John & Olga in Russellville, AR

Hot Springs Village

 We contacted Chuck Stewart of LibcoSolar to inquire about solar panels. Chuck did a complete site survey of our solar capacity. We were so impressed with Chuck's knowledge, integrity, and reliability from the onset of this project. Monthly Entergy bills, which too often were in the triple digits, are now less than 1/3 of that. One Entergy bill was merely $27! We almost wanted to frame it. Our system continues to work wonderfully and is almost maintenance free. We really love that we can monitor our system even when we are hundreds of miles from home. We strongly believe that purchasing solar power through LibcoSolar was one of the smartest decisions we have ever made!  - Carole and Bill in Hot Springs Village, AR

Jasper

  Chuck Stewart with LibcoSolar came to our home and did a complete site survey to be sure of our solar electric potential. A few days later we received a breakdown of what we could expect from the solar system along with photos of our intended solar site. Chuck Stewart took care of every aspect of the installation and it only took one day to install the complete solar system. The electric company arrived, tested it and signed off on it. I could not believe how smoothly the whole installation went. My goal was to reduce my electric bill and I ended up making a new friend. I can truly say I have never had dealings with anyone that has treated me as well as Chuck Stewart. - Ed and Christa in Jasper, AR

Hot Springs Village

  We began with the installation of 24 panels on our roof by Chuck Stewart of LibcoSolar. We hoped that the system would produce 50% of our power; however, the system has consistently produced 60% of energy consumption. The system has performed flawlessly, except for a few weather-related blips with our internet. With their constant monitoring of all the homes they install, Chuck discovered these minor problems and called us before we knew about them. We are extremely happy with our solar system and LibcoSolar and very proud of the part we are playing in the quest for green energy in the state of Arkansas. - Jim & Sandy, Hot Springs Village

Mena

  In 2009 a tornado ripped through our town and took down some major trees in our yard. We decided to add solar panels to our home and contracted with LibcoSolar. The system immediately cut my electric bill by 1/3 to 1/2. I can honestly say that out of all the contractors that worked on my house after the tornado, LibcoSolar was the only company who delivered exactly what they promised, on time and for exactly the quoted price. I highly recommend LibcoSolar with absolutely no reservations whatsoever.  PS - 3/2017 Thanks again Chuck for the excellent customer support. My one wonky panel shows power production again and it looks like it will be the leader thanks to the new inverter you installed. - Bruce and Alice in Mena, AR
