LibcoSolar is fully insured and Licensed in the State of Arkansas. Chuck Stewart passed his first NABCEP course in 2008 and more recently completed Enphase Storage and IQ8 Certification. We have installed multiple Enphase whole home battery systems and integrated generators. We have installed Enphase storage with the new Enphase IQ8 microinverters and with existing Enphase legacy systems. I can report that the battery systems work just as Enphase promised. A new era in residential solar has begun.

JUDGE THROWS OUT CHANGES
Arkansas passed Act 464 which would have allowed the utilities to credit wholesale rates for power supplied to the grid by residential solar during the day... then charge full retail rates for the power used by solar homeowners at night.
ARKANSAS APPELLATE COURT JUDGE PHILLIP T. WHITEAKER SAID NO TO THE UTILITIES. SITES LACK OF EVIDENCE THAT SOLAR CUSTOMERS ARE SHIFTING COST TO OTHER CUSTOMER

The recent legislation reinstated the federal tax credit back to 30% and includes this tax year.
Enphase Home Energy Solution
The first complete home power system truly capable of providing grid independence. The Enphase battery adds energy storage utilizing safe and powerful LFP chemistry and incorporating Enphase reliability of redundancy with multiple IQ8 microinverter in each battery. The Enphase smart switch automatically isolates and creates a micro-grid of the home when the utility's grid fails. The system coordinates solar, batteries and a backup generator, in that order, to completely power the home.
We've been waiting a long time for a reliable home power solution that allows grid tied solar panels to work when the grid goes down.
Determine Your Solar Power Potential
Let's face it, all homes are not created with equal solar access. An accurate assessment of your site is the most important place to start.
With this information we can calculate the percent reduction of your current power bills and the expected return on your investment.
Gives us a call, we generally start with a conversation and Google Earth.
DIY SOLAR KITS
Homeowners can still self-install the new IQ8 inverters in grid-tied format only. An Enphase Certified installer is only necessary to add any of the backup options.
Our kits are made to order for your specific site and roof type and delivered to your driveway. We work with you to determine layout, design and include every part down to the nuts and bolts.
Solar Kits Include
Backup power capabilities can be added anytime in the future.
DIY Consulting Service
We Install Home Power Plants
Pull up a lawn chair and watch LibcoSolar and our affiliates professionally install your home's own power plant. From solar to batteries, from permits to inspections, with backup generators, monitoring and service. We strive to assure homeowner satisfaction long after the sale.
The IQ8 microinverters are the first ever able to generate AC power directly from sunlight. No grid, no battery, just sunshine on the panels will directly supply power to your home. Extra solar power made during the day can be stored in the Enphase batteries or sent back to the grid to lower what's left of your utility bill.
Watch this Enphase IQ8 lab demonstration video of the inverter's capabilities.
The IQ8 can be configured four ways:
1) grid tied solar only,
2) grid tied with essential loads backed up during sunlight hours,
3) grid tied with day and night essential loads backed up, or
4) full energy independence.
Above slide from IQ8 school shows daylight only backup without a battery.
Leasing and long term financing of solar equipment is now allowed in Arkansas by the new legislation.
BUYER BEWARE! Solar financing has become a shameful scam in States that have allowed it. If it sounds to good to be true... Read what Consumer Reports has to say.
Don't let your solar installer get involved in your personal finance. Talk to your local bank or contact a finance company directly and save thousands of dollars.

"I couldn’t be happier with my solar energy system as installed by LibcoSolar. Chuck did a great job all the way, from initial contact through permitting, installation, and post-installation communication. I’m proud to be producing my own electricity. Thanks, Chuck, for all that you have done.” - Steve in Hot Springs Village

" My wife and I had Chuck and his crew install a system on our house at the end of 2018. Chuck still checks in with us to make sure we are happy. GREAT GUY!
Thanks. - Grant in Beebe
Hi Chuck, I just wanted to tell you how pleased we are with our solar system. 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 am glad that you 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
When we contacted LibcoSolar to inquire about solar panels we were so impressed with Chuck's knowledge, integrity, and reliability from the onset. Monthly Entergy bills, often in triple digits, are now less than 1/3 of that. Our system continues to work wonderfully and is almost maintenance free. We love that we can monitor our system even when we are away 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
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
Our solar system has performed flawlessly, except for a few weather-related blips with our internet. With LibcoSolar 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
