    State Regulators Continue Assault on Home Solar

    The Arkansas Public Service Commission has recommended a “two-channel” billing system that would give solar customers credit at a rate much less than they are charged


    The PSC previously determined that all the existing net metering customers with solar installed before the yet to be announced conversion date will be grandfathered from the new billing scheme for 20 years.

    30% Solar Tax Credit Ends Next Year

    The uncapped 30% federal tax credit on the entire cost of installing solar is the key component of making home solar a sound safe investment


    So far the 30% tariff on Chinese solar panel manufacturers has had little effect on the cost of installing solar.

    Solar Site Survey

    Determine Your Solar Power Potential

    Let's face it, not all homes are created with equal solar access so an accurate site survey is the most critical place to start.

    Once we know the solar potential at your site we can generate a report showing the size and cost of the system, the percent reduction of your current power bills and the expected return on your investment.

    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

     This is another new IQ system with impressive production numbers. 

    Hey Chuck! We are extremely pleased with the solar system. We just got our first bill in after we installed last month. This bill we owe $8.73 and netted 141 kWh back to us next month!

    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

    Latest Storage Technology

    The StorEdge 7600 with the LG Chem 9.6 kWh Lithium-Ion Battery makes this advanced grid tied inverter also serve as a battery backup when the grid goes down. Unlike traditional backup systems with expensive batteries waiting for a power failure, these batteries work every day to lower dependency on the utility grid with energy export control, time-of-use shifting, maximized self-consumption and peak shaving capabilities. 

    Solar power with storage systems will become the standard solar installation in Arkansas after the utilities change to a two channel billing method.

    Solar Financing

     Homeowners wanting to finance their solar projects most often choose a home improvement loan. We recommend speaking with your current bank and using this opportunity to keep you business local. If you prefer, talk with Admirals Bank, a national leader in home improvement loans. They’ve been making Title I Home Improvement Loans for over 40 years and are nationally recognized as specializing in solar energy home improvement financing.

    Remember these loans are secured with a second mortgage on your home. Talk with your trusted financial adviser first. 

    Abandoned in space in 1967, a US satellite has started transmitting

    An amateur radio astronomer picked out the odd faintly transmitting signal. Because the ancient satellite is tumbling in space the solar panels face the sun every four seconds causing the signal to fade in and out. It’s more than likely the on board batteries have disintegrated long ago. This confirms solar panels built 50 years ago are still capable of producing power even in the hostile environs of space.  Read More
