Why 8MSolarize
the Triangle?

Solarize programs, such as 8MSolarize the Triangle in North Carolina, are innovative programs designed to promote a mass transition to solar power within designated communities. The role of solarize programs in promoting solar awareness and boosting adoption throughout the Triangle region is commendable. 

8MSolarize the Triangle’s vision is more streamlined and focuses on high-quality, well-engineered systems with or without battery backups.

Our program is inclusive and available to anyone in the triangle area (Raleigh-Cary, Durham-Chapel Hill, and Henderson metros). If you are a homeowner in the area, we will take care of you and your neighbors.

Equipment Agnostic Means:


Having in-house engineering (PE’s) allows us to install any and all makes and models of equipment. We are completely agnostic and are not biased towards or incentivized to offer any one manufacturer or type of system. 

This provides us with the ability to entirely customize each system based on a customer’s needs – and to provide a variety of options. We are true experts and can help you weigh the pros and cons of every panel option, inverter, battery, etc. on the market.

We believe solar systems should be custom designed – including the components selected – based on each home’s needs, a customer’s budget, etc. Popular brands we install include Qcells, REC, Solaria, Silfab, Tesla inverters, Enphase microinverters, etc.

Frequently asked QUESTIONS

Some energy companies in North Carolina charge customers a blended rate that comes from dividing the amount due on your bill by the total kilowatt-hour consumption during the billing period. These blended rates give an accurate ROI estimation in theory, but they fail to account for seasonal demand.

At 8MSolar, we don’t use blended rates when calculating the financial impact of your solar energy system because it artificially inflates your ROI. Instead, we take all measures to produce accurate, verifiable numbers, so you can take our ROI estimate to the bank, literally.

We install three types of panels for businesses

  • Monocrystalline: These panels offer maximum efficiency and durability
  • Polycrystalline: These panels are innovative and very cost-effective
  • Thin-film: These panels are ideal for high-volume rooftop installations

Commercial solar energy systems provide excellent tax benefits that can reduce your commercial solar panel cost. According to the IRS Notice # 2018-59, any commercial solar panel system put into service by Dec 31st, 2023 and meets one of the following requirements is eligible for the full 26% federal tax credit:

  • Installed in 2020, 2021 or 2022 
  • Showing “physical work of a significant nature” 
  • Meets the “5% safe harbor test”
  1. We typically install commercial solar systems on rooftops of buildings that are almost always flat or have limited pitch. Using expert knowledge of the geographic area, we can design the array pitch angle to make sure it is producing optimal energy.
  2. Commercial solar system installations also have different mounting mechanisms than traditional homes. Commercial solar panels have different clamp-on-type bases that we specifically design for flat/metal roofs.
  3. The solar panels we use in most commercial applications are 72 cell panels, which is much larger than the traditional 60 cell modules we use in residential systems and have a higher power output – typically 350 watts per panel.
  4. Rapid shutdown capabilities that bring the DC voltage down to an inherently safe level are required in NC. Our engineers will help you design a system that meets those requirements.


  1. Ground-mounted systems are a great alternative for businesses that don’t have roofs suitable for solar panels but have significant amounts of land available. This system also works well if your company’s solar needs cannot be met by their current roof size. 
  2. Using expert geographical knowledge, our engineers can choose the optimal placement of your panels. They will test things like ground compaction to make sure we choose the proper equipment to avoid any geological problems that may arise.
  3. There are two types of ground-mounted solar panels. Pole-mounted panels are elevated off the ground and sometimes use tracking systems to tilt them toward the sun. Standard mounted solar panels have metal framing that we drive into the ground to keep them at a chosen angle.
