Vermont Home Owners are Going Solar – There’s never been a better time!

Making the Move to Solar Power is Energy Smart and Environmentally Responsible

Solar is Affordable Last year’s falling prices for silicon-based photovoltaic modules have driven the installed cost for a residential solar system down lower than we have ever seen.  These new low prices coupled with a favorable state rebate incentive and federal tax credit help make the decision to add solar electric power to your home an economically sensible one.  For more details on incentives currently available click here.

Solar is Clean Energy 2016 went on record as the warmest ever in the US. Perhaps it was just a freak year… or as a majority of climate scientists assert, the world may be warming, due in large part to increased levels of carbon dioxide entering the atmosphere from human activity – principally the burning of fossil fuel for its energy.  Take a stand – Reduce your Carbon Footprint by going solar.

Solar Provides Independence Free yourself from the upward push of utility rates. As we all know, they will only keep going up. By investing in a residential solar system from Catamount Solar you effectively lock in your power cost for the next 30+ years.  Also, thanks to the state’s progressive net-metering regulations, your utility will credit your account for all the solar energy you produce, allowing you to draw on the credit on cloudy days or in the evening when your solar power system is not producing power.  For more information on how net-metering works click here.

What Catamount Solar Will Do for You

Free Solar Site Assessment and Load Analysis The first step after contacting Catamount Solar is to set up a site visit.  While at your home, we will review possible options for locating the modules and other equipment, taking into account shading, exposure, building orientations, and the existing electrical system.  Please have a recent electric bill handy so we can use its information to calculate your annual electrical usage.

A Detailed Proposal following the site visit we will send you a detailed proposal, including the proposed system size, key component specifications, an estimate of the systems yearly production and an estimation of what percentage of your annual electrical bill the system will offset. Our proposal will also provide a fixed system price and well as your net cost following receipt of the state rebate and federal tax credit.

State Paperwork Once we have your agreement to proceed, we will take care of all the necessary state paperwork to secure your rebate, file for the required Certificate of Public Good (VT residents), and obtain historic preservation approval (required in VT if your home is older than 50 yrs.).  All you will need to do is sign the completed applications.

Professional Installation We cannot start until the rebate reservation is approved.  In the meantime we will be obtaining all the parts and equipment specified for your system.  Once we receive the approvals (usually within 1-2 months), we will shortly be out to your home to install the system.  The member-owners of Catamount Solar will be respectful of your property, keep up  an efficient installation schedule and maintain a tidy worksite.

Interaction with Utility for Meter Installation Once the system is completed we will coordinate with the utility to have the net meter and gross solar meters installed.

Final Rebate Documentation – Once the system is up and running, we will promptly compile the required documentation and send it so that your rebate check will arrive as quickly as possible.
