Connor Barwin Goes Solar 🏈

Philadelphia Eagles All-Pro Defensive End Connor Barwin chose Solar States to design and install his home’s system. The catch? He helped install it himself!

We service (install and maintain systems) any area within a 2-hour drive of the City of Philadelphia. Lancaster, Jersey Shore, Kensington, and everything the sun touches in between.

What determines the cost of a solar project?

The size of your rooftop and the amount of electricity you spend. Once we survey your roof, we can provide suggestions and pricing on racking, panels, inverters, and possibly a battery system. A brief overview on the economics of going solar is available here, but for a fully accurate quote you’ll need to submit your property information and speak with our team.

What incentives are available?

The 30% Federal Tax Credit is available thru 2032. More incentives are available for non-profits (qualifying non-profits can get up to 60% (!) back!). Other rebates may be available depending on your location. We are aware of any active programs and will take full advantage of anything available.

How will we provide a quote?

We’ll send you a PDF via e-mail and assign a solar designer to your project. The solar designer will handle all of the nuts and bolts of your project moving forward.

Getting an Accurate Assessment

From our Yooo Sun!!! Podcast, Micah (the founder of Solar States) discusses the importance of getting an accurate assessment.

If you are considering solar, please read:

In our industry there is too much noise – bad or unhelpful information that misleads you.

Our position is that it’s best to see things honest from the start – no empty promises. The truth is: a solar installation is an involved process, and varies greatly by region. We cross our i’s and dot our t’s, and we see a lot of i’s and too many t’s: applications, permits, incentives, contracts, e-mails and e-mails. Done well, this is not a click-to-buy purchase. But, twelve years in, we’ve managed to make your experience seamless, or close. We get ahead of problems and keep you in the loop. Forever after you’re installed, we’re only a phone call away.

If you don’t know which questions to ask but want to begin, just reach out with a ‘hello’ and our team will take care of you. We’ll tell you which questions you should be asking and be sure to provide suggestions grounded in your reality.

The #1 solar misconception in our region is that “I can’t go solar with my rooftop”. Hogwash, yes you can. Parts of Philadelphia and surrounding areas can be difficult to install in – narrow streets, flat or awkward rooftops – but this is our backyard and we’re very comfortable here. If you heard from another installer that you cannot go solar, or are of that opinion, please contact us – if there’s a way, we’ll find it.

Here are some facts to remember:

  • The price of a solar installation varies by rooftop, location, available incentives, energy production requirements and more. Be careful not to glean too much from a friend’s or the internet’s price – yours could be considerably less, or more.
  • Every Solar States installation is backed by our 10-year Workmanship Guarantee.
  • The Investment Tax Credit (ITC) stands at 30% through 2032.
  • The Philadelphia Solar Rebate is no longer available – funds ran out.
  • Solarize Philadelphia is active.
  • We are a Certified Powerwall installer.
  • We pay $500 for referrals. Referrals make our world go ’round.
