Solar + Powerwall Workshop at Tesla Store on August 10
LightWave Solar installs Tesla Powerwalls
More grid independence and resiliency with Tesla Powerwall
When you connect your solar system to Tesla Powerwalls, you gain the ability to utilize solar energy day and night and during utility outages, getting you one step closer to grid independence.

LightWave Solar invites you to attend our Solar + Powerwall Workshop at the Tesla Store to learn how these systems reduce your reliance on the grid and provide your home with seamless backup power, all easily monitored on the Tesla mobile phone app.
Tesla app monitors your home's energy use.
We will discuss costs, capabilities and tax benefits. As you might know, 2019 is the last year to claim the full 30% tax credit on solar + battery storage! The tax credit steps down to 26% in 2020.

Plus, Tesla will provide rides in their all-electric Model S, Model X and Model 3.

2019 deadlines: TVA program ends and Tax credit drops
TVA logo
In the Tennessee Valley area, TVA's Green Power Providers (GPP) program is the only viable way to sell all of your solar generation to the utility. Next year, TVA will not accept new GPP applications. Current GPP participants' 20-year agreements will not be affected; however, if you want to expand your existing system, 2019 is the last year to apply for an expansion!
30 percent solar tax credit ends in 2019
Currently, the federal tax credit for residential and commercial solar projects is equal to 30 percent of total project costs. Next year, the tax credit will step down to 26 percent. With this change, we anticipate a busy installation calendar, so let's get started on your project now.
We'd love to discuss your project! If you are an existing customer or you have been in touch with us before, simply reply to this email. If you have a new project, please complete our online contact form.
