Virginia Residential Solar Panels
There are many great reasons to consider investing in a Standard Energy Solutions (SES) solar electric system for your home. As one of our many home energy solutions available for lowering your home’s energy consumption solar doesn’t just reduce your electric costs every day. A solar solution reduces your dependency on traditional electricity sources and minimizes the impact of fluctuating energy prices. Your solar electric system helps the environment, and even increases the value of your home.
Investing in a solar electric system for your home can be surprisingly affordable. There are a variety of incentives available that can reduce your initial investment in a solar system by up to 30% (depending on the current status of your state grant and the specifics of your solar electric system).
Why do utility companies and federal and state governments want to help homeowners invest in solar systems? Because solar power is a smart investment for everyone. Making solar power more affordable to you helps governments encourage energy independence, create high tech jobs and boost the economy. Utility companies encourage the adoption of solar because they incur higher costs to generate electricity during peak demand times. Solar production is at its highest during peak hours—reducing stress on the grid.
Our job is to help you navigate the process.

Solar Incentives for Virginia Residents
If you’re a Virginia resident and you’re interested in making the switch to solar energy, there are several programs available to you. The Federal Investment Tax Credit and the current value of Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs), available to homeowners like you, ease your initial solar electric system investment.
Virginia currently does not have a Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) for solar in place that requires utilities to purchase Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs) generated by your system. 29 other states and the District of Columbia currently do have a solar RPS in place. A solar RPS requirement will make solar even more affordable for Virginia residents, so it is important that the Virginia government knows how important a RPS is for the clean energy future of the state.
Federal Investment Tax Credit
Purchase a solar electric system for your home and receive a federal tax credit of up to 30% of the total cost of your system, including installation and any improvements you need to make to your roof to support the solar panel arrays. Since this is a tax credit, it’s always a good idea to discuss any specific questions about the Federal Investment Tax Credit with a tax professional.
In addition to the Federal Investment Tax Credit, there are periodically incentives available specifically for Virginia*. Talk to your SES Sales Expert for the most current incentive programs available for Virginia residents.
