Solar Energy from Rain Remodeling

Rain Solar Energy

Rain Remodeling and Restoration has been serving Pennsylvania homeowners since 1956.  We are proud to introduce to you our newest division, Rain Solar Energy (Rain Roofing and Solar).  We are excited about the future of solar energy and the positive impact it has on the environment.  With the growing interest in solar in Pittsburgh and surrounding areas we knew it was time that we added solar power to our comprehensive line of roofing services.

Cost Savings

By going solar not only do you save money over time, but you lock in a lower fixed solar payment.  With inflation on the rise, paying variable and increasing rates to your utility provider doesn’t benefit your or your household.  Most of us would agree that it’s better to own than to rent; when you own your own solar system, you build equity and value in your home or business. By having Rain Solar Energy provide you with a solar system for your home we are helping you to save money, help the environment, and providing you with an asset should you decide to sell your home in the future.

Why You Should Choose Rain Roofing and Solar

Why should you choose Rain Solar?   The reason is simple, we do what we say we will do.  We are a company you can trust and our values of Family, Honesty, and Integrity are not just words; they mean something in every aspect of work we do.  Since 1956 the Rain name has meant quality and value; the likes of which no other company can match.

We offer value based pricing with best in class equipment, 20 – 30 year warranties and the best financing plans available today.

When it comes to your home or business, you only want to partner with a company that you can trust; our positive track record speaks for itself, with thousands of installations and continued referrals each and every year!

These days solar saves you money, lasts for decades, and moves your home or business one step closer to energy independence.

How It Works

A solar panel works by allowing photons (particles of light) to knock electrons free from atoms. The solar panel then converts those photons into electrons of direct current, which flow out of the solar panel and into an inverter and other electrical devices.

Weather and Solar Panels

Even though rooftop solar panels are often exposed to inclement outdoor weather conditions, they can withstand them.  Solar panels are electric devices and therefore, they are at risk for voltage surges caused by lightning.  Our installers will make sure your system is properly grounded to prevent surges.  Extra protection may be necessary, and a lightning protection system is a smart and easy upgrade.

Snow on solar panels is not a major problem. True, it can block the panels from receiving solar rays, but it usually melts off quickly because the panels are pointed directly at the sun.

We often hear our friends and neighbors say “how can solar work when Pennsylvania is so cloudy?” Did you know that Germany is a world leader in solar power and yet gets only as much direct sunlight each year as Alaska? Pennsylvania actually gets more sunshine!

Solar Rebates and Incentives

In Pennsylvania, one advantage of installing solar is net metering.  Net metering allows you to sell excess solar electricity back to the utility at the same price they would have sold it to you. In effect, you become a power producer on the grid, banking your excess energy for when you need it later on.

You may also be eligible to sell Solar Renewable Energy Certificates. SRECs are a solar incentive that allows homeowners to sell certificates for energy to their utility. A homeowner earns one SREC for every 1000 kilowatt hours (kWhs) produced by their solar panel system.

In 2020, the Federal government has extended some of its solar incentives through 2022, including a 2-year extension for residential commercial solar. The commercial (Sec. 48) solar investment tax credit has been extended at 26% through 2022.

These days solar saves you money, lasts for decades, and moves your home or business one step closer to energy independence.

  • Jim R., Cranberry Twp, PA
    “Rain Remodeling first provided me a quote to replace my roofing which was damaged due to hail. Once the roofing was replaced I worked with them to have my siding replaced as well. First, it was incredibly easy to work with Dean Addams, the sales agent for Rain Remodeling. Dean was attentive, proactive with my insurance carrier, and super customer friendly. He listened to our needs and followed up to any issues promptly. The crew that completed my roof replacement was courteous, careful about accessing my roof without damaging shrubs and flowers, and worked hard, efficiently and focused on installing the roof with quality… The crew that handled the siding replacement was a different crew, specializing in siding. That was comforting to know that Rain specializes their crews. They were equally hard working, efficient and courteous… The quality of the installation was actually better than the original siding installation.”

    “Worked with insurance company diligently to obtain the maximum dollar coverage for us. Allowed us to upgrade at no extra cost to upgrade shingle beyond the brand the insurance company proposed. The owner George Rain was available to us and throughout the job. This complex is comprised of 3-two story buildings. They arrived on scheduled date, with 3 crews, one for each bldg.The entire job was completed within a week, Cleanup was immaculate. Our surrounding shrubs and grounds were not disturbed. This was one of the best contractors to have worked on our Condominiums and we recommend Rain Remodeling as an outstanding company.”

  • George S., McKeesport, PA
    “They had three crews on job, one for each building, and completed entire job in 10 days. Negotiated with our insurance company to get $54,000 of cost covered by them. Upgraded our shingles to 30 year at no additional cost. Did a superb job of protecting all our property and landscaping during production. Clean up was thorough and complete.”

    “Sales person came out and evaluated my roof for hail and found damage. I had him meet with my insurance company and he got the insurance company to pay to replace the roof. Sales person was top notch and was well versed at hail and wind damage. Rain proceeded to install my new roof and gutters and did a great job. I turned other family members on to them as well and all has been great. A+ job for both determining hail damage and doing a great job on the installation of my roof and gutters. I would recommend them to anyone who need roof work performed.”

  • Christine H., Robinson Township, PA
    I highly recommend Rain Remodeling for any roofing needs.  Our roof sustained hail damage, and Josh worked directly with my insurance company to obtain full coverage to replace our shingles.  Silverio and his crew were very polite, hard-working, and professional.  Their work ethic would be difficult for others to match.  Throughout the entire process (which took two days due to weather), at least one person was always making sure debris was cleared.  Flowers around my home were protected as items were tossed from the roof, something I hadn’t even considered.  After the job was completed, the grounds were meticulously inspected to make sure no nails or scraps were  missed.  The roof looks great, and there have been no leaks even with all of the rain we’ve been receiving.  The entire experience was nothing but positive.
