Solar Company POWERHOME Expands Operations in North Carolina And Tennessee
According to company officials, POWERHOME opened its Raleigh hub to provide homeowners and businesses in central and eastern North Carolina a supplement to grid energy. With company headquarters and additional service offices located in the Charlotte area this is POWERHOME's third location in the state, where it plans to hire 100 associates in the areas of energy consulting and installation.
A company spokesperson said; “North Carolina is among the most active states in the nation for solar installations, ranking second for installed capacity, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association. POWERHOME has worked to build additional visibility in the state by forging partnerships with NC State Athletics and the Carolina Panthers.”
In addition to North Carolina residents of Tennessee will soon have more of a choice when it comes to the source of their electricity, POWERHOME said, as it announced expansion into the state with an operations center in Murfreesboro, 35 miles southeast of Nashville . Tennessee, where it plans to hire 100 associates, marks the 10th market in the company's footprint.
"Despite a massive disruption to the economy, consumer interest in solar continues," said Jayson Waller, CEO of POWERHOME. "More than ever, consumers are becoming energy conscious and are looking for ways to gain energy independence and decrease their monthly expenses. We're committed to helping those in our home state become energy independent and have the opportunity to own their power, instead of endlessly renting it from the utility companies."
“Over the past decade, the cost of installing solar panels has dropped by more than 70 percent due to lower equipment costs and various government tax incentives, including a federal solar tax credit of 26 percent on newly installed solar systems through the end of 2020,” POWERHOME officials said. “In addition to saving on traditional energy costs, solar energy systems can add to home value, making them an attractive long-term investment.”
