DI energy firm makes solar options more attainable

South Carolina’s sunshine makes it the perfect place for solar energy and Daniel Island is becoming a shining example of an environmentally-friendly community, according to one entrepreneur. 
Christopher Selverian moved to Daniel Island in 2012 with his wife and their 18-month-old twins for a job selling software. Selverian said he “stumbled into solar” in 2015 when S.C. laws changed, making going solar more attractive. After working for established solar companies, Selverian’s passion to provide customers with personalized service led him to start SOLEXO energy in 2020. 
“As solar companies grow, there is increasing pressure to close sales to support the overhead that has been created,” Selverian said. “I resolved to change the game. I am very skilled at patiently and thoroughly explaining solar from many perspectives.”
Selverian doesn’t use other salespeople, so he provides a more concierge solar experience. 
“For a home project, people want one point of contact that is giving them the straight story,” Selverian continued. “I manage the project from beginning to end…Most of the people I work with fundamentally believe solar is the right thing to do, they just don’t have the right information that empowers them to move forward. That is my driving focus.”  
Selverian added, “Being socially conscious and taking small steps for a better future is something we are all just doing now. No more plastic at Publix, trendy reusable water bottles and the Tesla invasion are all recent trends rooted in an awareness of our impact on the environment. Islanders are also embracing solar as a natural extension. Thinking has shifted from ‘Why add solar?’ to ‘Why not?’ At the end of the day, the average net cost of a solar system on DI is less than a new golf cart. Solar just makes you feel good. You gain a new appreciation for the super sunny days we have here.” 
When Dylan and Anastasia Reese moved to Daniel Island last July, installing solar was a top priority.  
“The amount of sun we get in South Carolina combined with the state tax credit make solar financially advantageous,” Dylan said. “And there’s the obvious environmental benefits which is the main reason we were interested in solar in the first place. I was extremely impressed with Chris’ professionalism and attention to detail. He always took the extra time to answer questions which made us feel comfortable about making the big decision to install solar.”
Anatoli and Jelena Semenoff had solar panels in New York City, so when they moved to Daniel Island both were eager to go solar again. 
“When I found out that the state of South Carolina offers a 25% tax incentive in addition to the 26% federal incentive, it was a no-brainer decision,” Anatoli said.
The couple was so happy with the results they are thinking of adding more panels.   
“I had a very positive experience with SOLEXO from beginning to end,” Anatoli added. “They were very knowledgeable, attentive, thorough, and precise in the way they handled every aspect of planning, installation and follow-up.”
