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
December 31 2022.

The tax credit will continue for another year but at 22% for 2021.
The tariffs on Chinese solar panels are having an effect on the US economy by costing the solar industry over 62 thousand jobs.

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 that information we can calculate the percent reduction of your current power bills and the expected return on your investment.
Thought about installing solar yourself? Have a few friends ready to help? But...
Solar Kit Example
- $21,930 - ($1.95 per watt!)
Just $16,228 after the 26% tax credit
That's enough solar power to make a typical $150 electric bill fade in the sun for decades to come. Give us a call and we'll custom design a solar kit with you.
The Enphase IQ8 LiFePo batteries are now available with the inverters themselves due out sometime in 2020. They've also released an automatic transfer switch that 'micro grids' your home when the utility power goes out. They are calling the new IQ8 system, Ensemble.
We've learned that the larger battery can make up to (19) IQ7+ inverters under the solar panels behave like IQ8's will and produce power from sunshine whether the utility power is on or not.
Another provision of the new legislation is leasing solar equipment will now be allowed in Arkansas. Leasing may be the preferred method for Big Box stores - But residential solar leasing has become a Big Scam in States that allow it. If it sounds to good to be true... Read what
has to say about solar leasing.
We recommend speaking with your town bank and using this opportunity to keep you business local. If you prefer, talk with Admirals Bank. They have been a national leader in solar financing for over 40 years.
Enphase Introduces Ensemble
The Encharge batteries will add energy storage to the IQ inverters allowing off grid solar power. The Enpower switch will automatically isolate and micro grid your home when utility power goes down.
The modular architecture of the Ensemble System provides reliability through redundancy with easy incremental expansion.
Comfortable, reliable off grid living could become a reality sooner than we think with this game changing residential solar technology.

Our Liberty Solar Home
See the consistent solar production over the nearly 10 years in service. ALL systems we install have 25 year manufacturer's warranties! When we bought our house 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 us back and will provide 70% of our power for several more decades. Our private solar power plant has proven to be our most prudent home improvement ever.
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
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
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
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
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
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
