We Offer The Best Options For Solar Panels & Inverters

Solar Panel Installation Process In Chapel Hill

We offer a wide range of solar panel options. Many solar companies are tied to a single supplier, so they are not able to offer different solar panels and inverters. At Covenant Solar Tech, we have working relationships with multiple companies. We know the solar industry inside and out, and we can determine the best solar panels for your energy needs.

First, we work with you to determine how much you want to save on your energy bill. We then inspect your home to make sure that solar panels can be installed: this involves assessing the position of the roof, the trees nearby, as well as any issues that may arise with you homeowner’s association. Based on our assessment and inspection, we will give you a quote and start on your project! Take a look at some of our previous solar projects & photos.

Chapel Hill NC Solar Shingles

Solar Shingles are a great option if your homeowner’s association doesn’t allow solar panels. Solar Shingles are a cutting edge technology at an affordable price. They allow for homeowners to cut down on their electric bill while keeping their home looking great. Photovoltaic roof shingles are also tax-subsidized, so you’ll be reaping the tax benefits while also spending less on your electricity. Because solar shingles are weatherproof as well as photovoltaic, they can be installed in place of regular shingles, protecting your home for years to come. They add a lot of value to a home, and will save you money for a long time!

Solar For Ground Mounts – Off Grid With Backup Battery

Your solar panel installation can be done on both your roof or by using ground mounts. A ground mounting system allows for the business or family to choose an optimal place on their property to get the most use out of the panels. The solar panels should always be installed by a solar company, and this will ensure the homeowner has a professional installation, along with a resource for any questions. These systems are easier to place because they are on open land and don’t require any additional drilling like you would see on a traditional roof mounted system. They are also easier to clean and maintain than a traditional setup. A ground system has a better range of motion, and this enables the buyer to get the perfect tilt for the most sun exposure. The cost for a ground mount system and a rooftop solar panel system are usually the same or a very close comparison, and most companies will offer both and let the buyer choose which option suits their needs.

Act Now While Solar Tax Credits Are Still Available

Current incentives are available that cut the cost of installation by 65%. Whether you want to go green or just save some extra cash a solar energy system is a great investment. Solar tax credits are set to expire in 2015 for the State and 2016 for the Federal. You will want to get installed right away to claim the full amount. Ask us for a free consultation and find out what solar power can do for your home.

How Do Solar Panels Work?

Solar electricity uses specialized panels to make clean energy from the sun. You can use this energy to power your businesses, cars, and homes. Solar energy is being used to fight the harmful gases that are released when fossil fuels are burned to create electricity. The gases from fossil fuels are the leading causes of air pollution and global warming, and solar power is looking to change this. Solar panels equipped with solar photovoltaic cells are mounted on houses and businesses to use as an alternate fuel source.

Satisfaction Guaranteed!

We are committed to providing professional, honest, and affordable service on every solar system installation. Covenant Solar Tech was formerly known as Sun Dollar Energy.

Sun Dollar Energy was the most informative and upfront about everything related to the process. Dan quickly responded to any questions I had and was fastidious about installation details ensuring that not only did I have an optimal performing installation but also a visually pleasing installation. What a pleasure it was to work with Dan, who I genuinely felt was as invested in my installation as I was.

Unlike many other service providers I have worked with, Sun Dollar Energy came in on time, on budget and the system has exceeded my high expectations. For anyone else considering working with Sun Dollar Energy, I would give them a whole hearty recommendation. Please feel free to pass this letter on to any prospective customers. Thanks again for your great service!

I recently hired Dan Lezama from Sun Dollar Energy, LLC to install a 3 kW system to power my organic farm in Orange County, NC. I hired Dan because his estimate was lower than his competitors and his presentation was better. The system was installed in a timely manner, on budget, in terms of time and money. I’m very happy with the system, and would recommend his services to anyone looking for a PV solar system! The entire process was very smooth and professional, all the way from start to finish.
