Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the most common questions asked by customers

What Are the Financial Benefits?

When you put a solar energy system on your property, you save money on your electric bills while also protecting yourself against future increases in electricity costs. The amount of money you may save depends on utility rates and solar incentives in your region, but going solar is always a great option.

What Are the Environmental Benefits?

Solar power, like other renewable energy sources, has a number of environmental and health advantages. Going solar lowers greenhouse gas emissions while also lowering air pollution levels such as sulfur dioxide and particulate matter which may cause health issues.

Can I Afford To Go Solar?

You can go solar if you have the financial means. Solar financing with no down payment is now readily available, making it simple for people with good credit to start saving money on their power bills by going solar.

Will I Still Receive an Electric Bill?

If you have a solar energy system with battery storage, you will still get a bill from your utility even if you are completely off the grid. However, by installing a solar panel system that matches your consumption, you may significantly cut your cost or even pay nothing at all.

Do Solar Panels Work in a Blackout?

In the event of a power outage, your solar panel system will shut off. This is to prevent emergency workers and electric utility repair personnel from getting hurt due to your panels sending electricity back to the grid. However, there are certain inverters that can provide backup power in the event of a blackout when coupled with a battery system.

Will My Solar System Need Maintenance?

Solar panel systems are made of tough tempered glass and only require minimal upkeep for the 25 to 35 years that they will produce electricity. In most situations, you don't have to clean your solar panels very often. Most equipment manufacturers provide warranties, although these vary depending on the manufacturer.

What Solar Energy Rebates Are Available?

Depending on where you reside, solar subsidies and incentives may differ. The most significant is the federal investment tax credit (ITC), which allows you to deduct 26% of the cost of your solar energy system from your taxes. Some states provide additional tax credits, and certain cities and utilities offer cash refunds or other benefits.

Should I Lease or Loan My Solar System?

Solar loans and solar leases have advantages and drawbacks. Both options lower your monthly power costs while also being good for the environment, but the conditions of each type of agreement are different. Compare the alternatives to see which one is best for you.

What Size of Solar System Do I Need?

The size of your solar energy system will be based on how much electricity you consume each month, as well as the weather in your area. A Solar provider will be able to help you determine this by looking at your monthly electricity bill.

Will My Roof Qualify For Solar?

Solar panels are best installed on southerly-facing roofs with little to no shade and enough space to accommodate a solar panel system. If your home doesn't have the ideal solar roof, there are workarounds that can be discussed with your solar installer.
