An early adopter’s investment into the solar industry ensures the continuing growth and sophistication of our field. YOUR investment builds a foundation of trust while allowing you to quickly reap the benefits of solar energy. It won’t be long before people are wondering why a person wouldn’t have a power generation system on their roof.

Market Trends Toward Electric Vehicles

February 20, 2018

Electric vehicles are making the news – and not just for being shot into space. The grid demand for electrically charged vehicles is changing the utility industry and disrupting the personal vehicle industry. Better Together Solar uses SolarEdge HD Inverters with integrated car charging stations as our go-to for EV charging stations.

Reasons to Go Local for Solar

February 16, 2018

Local investment is the most effective way to help your community while simultaneously improving your home value and sustainable footprint. Going solar is the best and most effective way to reduce or eliminate your monthly electricity bill, while also adding value to your home and neighborhood (a win-win!).

Net metering is a cornerstone of the solar industry in much of the United States, and allows solar owners to be properly compensated for their energy production. The value net metering brings to solar owners, the utilities and other grid customers drives us all closer to a sustainable energy future.

January 06, 2017

Gov. John Kasich vetoed two bills at the end of 2016 addressing the future of energy in Ohio. The new laws of 2017 represent an opportunity for renewables to expand along with the growing energy market in Ohio.


Better Together Solar is proud to be a leader in Ohio for the growth of renewables, investing in the diversification of the energy market and increasing competition for solar array installations. By 2026, the percent of renewables as a portion of total energy production in Ohio will be, according to state code, 12.5%. Early adopters of this growth will be adding to the state’s infrastructure, creating jobs and leading Ohio into the future of energy.

Solar Energy Jobs Are Growing 12 Times as Fast as the US Economy

January 27, 2017

"This month, the Energy Department noted in its annual energy and jobs report that, 'Solar technologies, both photovoltaic and concentrated, employ almost 374,000 workers, or 43% of the electric power generation workforce.' (Coal, by contrast, accounts for about 86,000 workers.)"

Likewise, according to a report published by the Environmental Defense Fund's Climate Corps program, solar and wind jobs are growing at a rate 12 times faster than the rest of the US economy. Firms are dedicating their energies to sustainability and the potential of cheaper, more technologically advanced non-polluting energy.

What is the Carbon Payback of Solar Cells? Now Under 1 Year!!

December 08, 2016

Over the years, we heard from trolls and clickbait fake news claims that much more carbon is released in the production of solar modules than is saved by their production of clean 'carbon free' electricity. Early studies all debunked this myth and manufacturers go to great lengths to communicate about their use of renewable energy in their process. We have been confident in using this fact based information to educate our community and overcome customer objections. Today, we are even more excited about clean solar electricity because exciting research on this topic was just published in the leading scientific journal, Nature. Energy payback times have dropped from 5 years in 1992 to under 1 year for poly-silicon PV modules.

Scientists Discover New Material to Help Make Solar Panels More Efficient

August 09, 2016

This year, a team including scientists from Drexel University, the Shubnikov Institute of Crystallography of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the University of Pennsylvania and the U. S. Naval Research Laboratory published its findings in the journal Nature Photonics. They discovered a new type of crystal to help convert light energy into electrical energy much more efficiently than previously theories would indicate.
