FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How much is your electricity bill? Whatever it is, solar can in some cases not only eliminate your monthly bill but it can provide you with a credit that can turn into cash at the end of the year.. Some solar homeowners enjoy a discount on their energy bill as high as 100% from Day 1! There are plenty of zero-out-of-pocket solar financing options – like solar loans and solar leases – that allow homeowners with acceptable credit to switch to solar and start saving immediately. We’ll help you find the best one for your financial situation.
Making the switch to solar doesn’t just save you money on your electricity bills. Because solar rates are pre-determined, you’re also protected from future rate hikes. The amount you stand to save depends on the utility rates and solar policies of your area, but regardless of where that is you can expect to save significantly more money than if you stuck with your legacy energy company.
In most cases, no. With the recent advances in solar panel tech, modern solar systems require little to zero maintenance for their first 25-35 years of use. Most solar panels don’t even need regular cleaning! And in case something does happen, our manufacturer warranty means you’re covered over the first 25 years.

Yes, although it depends on where you live. The most well-known is the US federal government’s investment tax credit (ITC) extended to all solar homeowners, which lets you deduct 30% of the cost of your solar system from your taxes. There are also additional state-level tax credits and other incentives and rebates offered by certain districts and utilities.

When it comes to financing your solar system, you’ve got three options: pay for the system entirely in cash or credit card, sign a solar loan to purchase (PPA), or take out a solar loan. In most cases the latter two options have rates that come out to less than your average electricity bill. So whatever your energy bill is costing you right now, your solar financing option will likely cost MUCH less.
No need to worry. Not only are there plenty of studies showing that homes with solar systems sell for as much as 17% more than similar homes without solar, but these homes also they can sell up to 20% faster as well. Keep in mind this is only for homes that actually own the solar system rather than lease them. In most cases you can expect a solar system to increase your property valuation more than a kitchen or bathroom renovation would.

Not necessarily. Solar energy systems that include solar batteries are known as solar-plus-storage, and while they’re growing in popularity batteries aren’t required for a functioning solar system as long as you’re connected to your local grid. Any excess power your system generates will go back into the grid (which your city will pay you for). And if you need more energy than your panels generate, you can also draw it from the grid. There are many state and government incentives that can save the homeowner anywhere from 30% to 100% off of a battery storage wall. This can also help with power outages. Big time help for homes that operate on an electric well water system, or any life support equipment.

The ideal type of roof for a prospective solar homeowner is one that faces south with little or no shade, along with enough uninterrupted space to fit the solar panels. But don’t worry if your roof doesn’t fit these specifications – there are plenty of workarounds available. Once we know more details about your particular roof we’ll be able to decide exactly how to go about the installation.
