Longhill Ln - Work Team Engaged on Upper


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

Most homeowners 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 resources of two other well established companies, with over 60 years experience in the roofing and electrical services industry, to perform a top notch installation. All our designs are based on your objectives with special emphasis on workmanship and aesthetics. Our electricians, provided by Daco Electrical Services (www.dacoelectric.com)  and James Martin Electric, perform all electrical work. They work closely with the teams at Cedar Shakes and Shingles (www.cedarshakesandshingles.com) that handle the roof racking and solar panel installation. Cedar Shakes and Shingles puts their outstanding 40+ year residential and commercial reputation on the line to provide assurance against any roof leaks. Frankly, there is a way that the 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. Our Master Electrician is on-site and engaged on every installation. 

 We treat every home and business likes it's our own and have the flexibility to offer a choice of 12 different solar panels and are experts in design and use of the best-of-breed inverter and 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.
