Solar Energy Options in Asheville 

With the summer sunshine flooding through the Asheville valleys, your mind might be turning to the alternative energy you can harness. Solar power is becoming much more common and is more affordable than ever. If you’re wondering what your options are for solar power at home, here are some tips to help you find the right provider and set up right here in Asheville.  

Adding Solar Power to Your Home 

Solar power has come a long way. There was a time when systems were cost prohibitive and you automatically needed a professional to handle the installation. While you still may choose to work with a professional, there are plenty of options, even for DIY.  

In Buncombe County, check out the Blue Horizons Project, which was developed by the Energy Innovation Task Force. By visiting their website, you can access resources in the area for making your home or business more energy efficient.  

The General Costs 

Most people want to understand the cost/benefit analysis of shifting to more environmentally friendly forms of energy. The price for at-home solar setups has dropped significantly over the last few years. To determine if it is worth it for you, ask yourself these questions: 

  • What are your current electricity costs?  
  • What is the cost of installation in your area?  
  • How will you pay the upfront costs?  
  • Do you get enough sun?  

To learn more about options in Asheville, refer back to the Blue Horizons Project. Members of our team have also worked with Haywood Power who can provide you with more information.  

Components to Solar Energy 

Installing solar power to your home isn’t as easy as hooking up some solar panels. There are several components that will be required for your home. We wanted to share the basics, but do encourage you to consult with a professional if you want to move forward.  

  • Solar panels 
  • Inverter 
  • Battery pack 
  • Power meters 

There are other components to the process as well. You can learn more about it here 

Alternative Energy Sources 

Of course, solar isn’t the only alternative source of energy thats good for the Southern Appalachian Mountains. Other options include hydro power and wind power.  

Wind is of particular interest for many WNC residents. Haywood Power and other resources in the area can provide more details. But with the wind patterns in our region, especially if you’re at or near the top of a ridge, wind can provide quite a bit of additional power for your home.  

One of our values here at GoPrime Mortgage, Inc. is to build community through sustainability. We hope that many new homeowners in Asheville are willing to consider the alternatives of more renewable energy sources. To talk to us about financing your next home and finding additional resources, call us today
