Professional Solar Panel Installers
Reduce your electricity bills with solar energy — Nashville, Tennessee.
Here are some 5 star reviews from our customers on Google.
Highly recommend Astrawatt for solar panel installation in the Kanas City area. Prior to starting the process, I read many on line horror stories with other national installers about pushy sales process, delays in installation, incorrect paperwork submission, and project managers ghosting customers. My experience with Astrawatt was the farthest from those experiences and was outstanding. As they only recommend the best equipment brands and models, may not be as cheap as some other companies but receive a superior product since this is a 25 year investment. I received proposals from several other local installation companies as well. I had a focus on a local company that had a positive BBB rating, did the sales, project management, installation and service with no sub-contractors while having been in business for an extended period. Astrawatt fit those requirements, and their education first approach in the initial consultation showed their customer focus. At no time did my sales consultant Reid use any high pressure sales tactics, ensuring all my questions were answered and I was comfortable with my selection even, if I did not select them. Once contract was signed, Megan the assigned project manager was very responsive, providing routine updates on the process and quickly answering all my many questions. All applications to the city and Evergy occurred in a timely and complete fashion, resulting in the installation being scheduled and performed slightly ahead of schedule. The installation crew was very professional, completing the installation in 2 days as scheduled. Post installation inspection approval process was slightly delayed due to an overly picky city inspector (required updated engineering plans and resubmission for 1 panel that was re-oriented during install due to an obstruction). Astrawatt quickly updated the plans and resubmitted to the city which were approved and final inspection passed as quickly as the city's process allowed. I hope not to move ever again, but if I did I would use Astrawatt again on my next solar install.

We selected AstraWatt for solar panels installation after interviewing 4 companies. Rhody showed a lot of professionalism and detailed explanation like no one in other companies. He was patient with a lot of questions we had and offered very good deal. After we signed up, process was taken by Megan and she handheld the project feeding us with updates on City, Evergy approvals and providing constant communication. Since we expanded our project, Keith (Founder and CEO) got involved and was very helpful offering very good guidance. I cannot say anything, but Astrawatt is a company to go if you consider solar panels for your house/business. Since they are managing so many projects and solar industry is booming be patient if you don’t have answer on email within 24 hours. It's worth the wait to have assurance your project will be taken care of by very professional company. A+

Tennessee Solar Incentives and Tax Credits
Federal Solar Tax Credit
The Investment Tax Credit (ITC), also called the federal solar tax credit, helps you reduce the cost of your solar energy system. You can deduct 30% of the cost of your solar energy system from your federal income taxes. There is no cap on the value of your tax credit and it applies to both residential and commercial systems.
The federal solar tax credit was recently increased to 30% and its timeline has been extended. If you install a solar PV system between now and 2032 you will receive a 30% tax credit.
The federal solar tax credit helps you save thousands of dollars in upfront costs, in addition to many solar incentives and rebates for the state of New York.
Tennessee Sales Tax Credit
Solar panels and equipment are exempt from Tennessee sales taxes. You do not pay the 7% state sales tax for your solar energy system and equipment, although you may have local and county sales taxes.
Our solar consultants can help answer any questions you have about finding the most tax credits, exemptions, and incentives for where you live in Tennessee.
Green Energy Property Tax Assessment
Green Energy Property Tax Assessment caps the taxable amount of value that installing a solar system can add to your property. The assessed value of your property cannot exceed 12.5% of what it cost you to install your home’s solar energy system.
For example, if you install a $20,000 solar energy system for your home, the state of Tennessee will only consider it to add up to $2,500 to your home’s property value. You pay additional property taxes on 12.5% of your home’s solar system instead of paying property taxes on the full amount of your home’s solar installation.
Solar Increases the Property Value for Your Home
Long-term savings with solar energy will increase your home’s property value. A recent study from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) found that your home’s value increases by $20 for every $1 you save on your electricity bills by installing solar panels.
For example, if your home’s solar energy system saves you $700 every year, your home’s value can increase by $14,000.
DSIRE Incentives Database - Tennessee
The Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency (DSIRE) is a comprehensive database that Tennessee residents can use to search for and find solar energy incentives in Tennessee and across the entire country.
