A Lifetime of Carefree Energy Savings Starts Today

Astrum Solar’s home solar experts put the extra time in upfront to design and install a solar system that lets you get more energy and more electricity savings from your solar home. Because of this extra attention and accuracy, your monthly solar energy bill, combined with your new electricity bill, will be much lower than your old electricity bill — and you’ll free yourself from years of unpredictable energy costs!

Combining the reliability and skill of a national solar company with personalized service and local knowledge, Astrum Solar can help you harness the sun’s full potential for your home. We have one time to get it right — and to earn your trust and your referrals to family and friends. That’s why we’re devoted to delivering the most carefree solar experience from end to end: from our first conversation through the entire lifetime of your system.

A Different Kind of Solar Company:

Discover the Astrum Solar difference, and how it can help you get the easiest and most rewarding home solar experience possible:

Yes, You Can Afford Solar Today

Government and utility incentive programs can drive down the cost of your Maryland solar installation by more than 50%. If you choose to pay as you go for your solar power, most of the incentives transfer to your system owner, who passes the savings on to you in the form of a low to no upfront cost.

Federal

Residential Energy Efficient Property Credit

The federal rebate is 30% off your installation price. Simply fill out a one page form as part of your federal tax return, and you’ll get your money as a tax rebate. If you do not expect to owe taxes this year, you can roll over your credit to the following year since the credit is available through 2016.

State

Maryland Residential Clean Energy Grant Program

The current Maryland grant is $1,000 for systems up to 20kW in size. The Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) PV solar grants are available for both residents and small business owners.

Local

Local Property Tax Credits

Local incentives are changing all the time as counties become more aware of the benefits of solar power or run out of funds. If your property taxes are lower than the credit amount in a year, you can carry the remaining credit forward so you always get the full amount.

  • Anne Arundel — There is a one-year property tax credit of up to 50% of your total installation costs up to $2,500.
  • Baltimore — There is a property tax credit of up to 50% of your total installation costs or $5,000, whichever is lesser. The maximum credit available is determined by the amount of property taxes you pay.
  • Harford — There is a property tax credit of up to $2,500.
  • Prince George’s — There is a property tax credit of up to 50% of your total installation costs up to $5,000.

SRECs

Maryland Solar Energy Renewable Certificates (SRECs)

As a homeowner, you can generate SRECs and sell them to utility companies, which need them to meet Maryland’s Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) solar energy requirements. One credit is issued for each 1,000 kilowatt hours your solar panels generate and SRECs are an entirely separate benefit from your electricity savings.

As one of the country’s top residential SREC aggregators, Astrum Solar can offer our installation customers the best value for the Maryland SRECs you will generate with your solar system. When you choose to own your solar system yourself, you pick how we pay you top value for your SRECs:

  • Fixed Price Yearly Plan — Payments for $120 per credit are sent every February for three years for the credits your system generated in the previous energy year.
  • 0% Brokerage Plan — Proceeds for the full earnings from sales of the credits your system generated are paid within 45 days of each transaction.

Maryland Homes Are Rich in Sunlight

Your Maryland home gets more sun than you think! Believe it or not, we get 50% more sunshine per day than Germany, the world leader in solar installations.
