A large percentage of U.S. consumers prefer to do business with companies that place a priority on sustainability and energy conservation. Solar is one of the easiest steps you can take — in terms of promoting your efforts.
EV Technology & Incentives
You may not have one yet, but Electric Vehicles (EVs) are coming. Let us help you plan your solar installation for this inevitability. We can tell you what to expect with your EV purchase, and we can help you size your system based on your driving habits and the model of your car. A hardwired high-output Level 2 charger can be installed in your garage or carport as part of your solar system. Make this investment now so you are ready for the future.
Tax credits are based on the battery size and go up to $7,500 for customers who purchase an EV, but they won’t last forever. The expiration date is separate for each manufacturer and occurs after an automaker sells 200,000 eligible vehicles. Tesla hit the milestone first in July 2018. As a result, there are no federal tax credits for Tesla now. More and more manufacturers are introducing EVs, so there is no limit to choices on the market!
Battery Storage Creates Peace Of Mind
Adding battery storage to your solar electric system creates a dependable solution for all your energy needs. Use it day or night to self-power your home. Adding battery storage creates peace of mind – bad weather, blackouts, and unexpected outages won’t disrupt your life. With both solar and a solar battery, you can determine how best to power your home – energy from the sun, power from your battery, or tap into the grid.

Need A New Roof?
We teamed up with some of the best roofers in the area. Let our experienced roofing team replace your roof. We will warranty the workmanship of the roof and the solar installation, so you have the ease and convenience of ONE company completing your solar system and your roof.
We offer the highest quality solar equipment and use industry best practices that won’t void your roof warranty. Here’s the bottom line: you’re getting a better product, with a better warranty, from a DC-based company backed by large US corporations like SunPower and Enphase.
District Energy specializes in and has experience installing flat roofs. Solar panels on flat rowhouse roofs are installed on beams that span from parapet to parapet. This method requires no roof penetration and adds no weight to the roof itself.
With over 100 installations on pitched roofs, District Energy has significant experience in this area. Our pitched roof solar installations use high-quality materials that maintain the integrity of your roof.
Solar Green Roofs
District Energy can install Solar Green Roofs that integrate solar panels with plants and foliage that use a temporary or permanent reservoir of stored water for the needs of the plants.
The solar panel system is securely anchored in a ballasted monolithic platform that eliminates roof penetrations and the potential for leaks. The elimination of stormwater runoff and the production of renewable energy will create a fast return on investment (ROI).
Studies have also shown that a solar green roof produces more energy than a solar-only roof. Solar panels operate more efficiently when they are not too hot.
