Brightest Solar, based in in Charleston, SC is a clean energy, green energy company that provides residential solar panel installation in Charleston and the Carolinas to help homeowners save money and control their utility bills.
If you had the option to buy a home with a fixed electricity cost due to a solar panel installation ...or one that varied by hundreds of dollars throughout the year, which would YOU choose?
Let's put solar in perspective; putting solar panels on your home is no more expensive than buying a car. But, unlike a car, solar panels become a genuine investment that makes money and saves you money every year, while a vehicle loses value the moment it leaves the lot and every year thereafter.
A Message from the CEO:
With 211 days of sunshine every year, plus "sun number" scores of 71-77 out of 100, plus 55% in tax savings, the benefits add up for South Carolina residents to think green and switch to solar. This week, a recent report by Channel 2 news showed that South Carolinians have the "highest electric rates in the nation." http://counton2.com/2018/02/20/sc-highest-electric-bills-in-nation/ And, let's not overlook the failure of a decade long $9 billion effort to build two nuclear reactors. The SC Senate voted on Thursday, Feb. 15, 2018 to buy lawmakers and state regulators "more time" to determine whether additional rate hikes are necessary; to date, SCE&G customers have paid $1.8 billion! South Carolinians will also be the hardest hit by the new federal gas tax increase and the new tax law will most strongly effect those who make between $50 and 75K and itemize their deductions; they are the largest group of taxpayers in SC, according to the following article: http://www.thestate.com/news/local/article197475279.html
Let's put solar in perspective; putting solar panels on your home is no more expensive than buying a car. But, unlike a car, solar panels become a genuine investment that makes money and saves you money every year, while a vehicle loses value the moment it leaves the lot and every year thereafter. Just look at the official Kelly Blue Book and you will see this is true! It is to the HOMEOWNER's advantage to BUY solar panels to meet their current and potential electric needs, based on electric bills. The tax benefits are only available if you BUY; if you lease, all of the tax benefits go to the installer, not you. Too many installers are willing to let you lease, placing a lien against your home so THEY get the tax benefits. As you can imagine, a home with a lien becomes virtually impossible to sell at any price and a millstone around your neck.
If you had the option to buy a home with a fixed electricity cost due to a solar panel installation ...or one that varied by hundreds of dollars throughout the year, which would YOU choose? It is a FACT that homes with solar panels sell faster to young couples and people on a fixed income who don't want their electric bills to wildly swing throughout the year. It makes perfect sense to choose solar and minimize your electric bill, which will surely rise in 2018 and 2019. Solar panels also come with a transferable warranty that typically increases a home's resale value by 20%, for these very same reasons.
Keep this in mind: Tax benefits won't last forever. The more people that come on board, the less need there is for our state and federal government to provide substantial incentives! The water has been made warm and comfortable for you; now is the time to take control of the one utility you simply cannot live without--electricity--for summer is very nearly here and, according to the Farmer's Almanac, it's going to be hotter than normal!

Many of you have heard about the Solar Tariff in the news. Don't let it scare you.
We want to assure you that we thought ahead.
We purchased the Rolls Royce of Solar Panels in December 2017 for over 300 home installations, so we will NOT be affected one iota by it.
Smart homeowners and investors from around the US
look at a home's solar potential.
"For every $1 you save on your electric bill, you get $20 in increased home value," states the
Quite simply, people want to buy homes that are energy efficient, not those with uncontrolled energy bills!
Put an end to frightening,
escalating energy bills!
Did you know that South Carolina's rates are 29% above the national norm!
Isn't it time you took control of the one service you cannot live without, but which escalates in price every year? Why not save and put that money into college, a vacation, or your retirement instead?

The guys at Brightest Solar emphasized that they wouldn't let us buy something that doesn't make financial sense for us. We're about 6 into owning it, paid off our system (which was paid with money we were already spending on electric), and we will never pay the electric company again! Setting up for retirement at 42 years old and one less bill I'll have to look forward to."
Excellent from start to finish, A+ Rob Dodge expert explanation of solar was very informative, to say the least.
And the whole process was seamless.
