Welcome to CAVU SOLAR!

Go Green, Greatly reduce or practically eliminate your electric bill and increase your home or business equity

Most home and business owners are surprised to learn that Virginia is indeed a solar friendly state with Novec, Dominion, Rappahannock, Shenandoah and many other utility providers implementing the core Net Metering / Grid-tie technology. This allows you to not only produce your own electric power, but trade back all extra power you generate and receive full credit to offset your current electric bill down to as little as just your current monthly connection charge which is usually between $8 and $16 per month.

CAVU Solar is a local solar company with a different approach from the national companies. Every job engages the local resources of our team of senior design, installation, project management and support resources with over 30 years experience in the roofing, electrical services and IT industries to perform a top notch installation. All our designs are based on your objectives with special emphasis on workmanship and aesthetics. Our Master electrician is on-site supervising and performing all electrical work.  Unlike other national companies, we do not cut-corners with all our roof and ground mount systems employing an Ironridge or K2/Everest racking system for the solar panel installation.  Frankly, there is a way that our professional roofer looks and works at these jobs, to minimize impact to your roof, that is just not there with the average solar installer, including the big guys. 

The same is true on the electrical side with special attention to running conduit as aesthetically as possible, or hidden entirely. This takes time and experience.  

 We treat every home and business likes it's our own and have the flexibility to offer a choice of leading Tier 1 solar panels and are experts in design and use of the best-of-breed inverter and solar panel optimization systems from SolarEdge. We focus on quality, not quantity and at pricing that is usually less than the competition! For these reasons, we are frequently called on to straighten out problems caused by other installers.

We are fully insured - State and County licensed and are proud of our non-accident safety record and virtually all happy customers.  Let's explore the possibilities!
