Frequently Asked Questions

Can I add more panels to my roof if I already have Solar from another company?
It is possible to add panels to existing systems, however this will be accessed on a case by case basis. Some factors like space and system ownership can affect this ability.
A previous company Disqualified my house but I still want to go Solar. What other options do I have?
Our specialty is to help you go solar when others can’t. We will evaluate your situation and recommend the best option and customize your system based on your needs.
What incentives does my state offer and how do I receive them?
Incentives, credits and rebates vary by state and each municipality and county might have their own. If you’re interested, we will evaluate your situation and tell you which incentives and credits you may qualify for.
What happens during an installation and how long does it take?
During the solar installation we are able to fasten your equipment to your home, this includes panels and inverters along with other components. This system is custom made to your home and will be connected via a conduit to your existing electrical system. Usually, a basic install only takes one day to be completed. (*The entire process from Contract Signing to Final Inspection can take 1-6 months)
What happens after installation and how long until my system is working?
Once your equipment is installed, we request an electrical and building inspection. Upon passing inspections, we are able to interconnect with your utility company and close out your permits. Once this is done, your project is considered complete.
Financing Options: Is it better to finance or buy solar panels?
Solar panels are a great way to save money on your energy bill and help the environment. But when it comes to choosing how to finance your solar panels, there are a few things to consider. One option is to lease the panels from a company. This can be a good option if you don't have the upfront cash to buy the panels outright. However, you will likely have to pay more over time since you're not owning the asset. Another option is to finance the purchase of the solar panels with a loan. This can help you get the panels at a lower cost since you're paying over time, but you'll need to qualify for a loan and make monthly payments. There are pros and cons to both options, let's talk and go over your options.
Is it really $0 down to go Solar?
What if I am planning to sell my house and I have already purchased a Solar system?
You have the option to pay it off after you sell your property or add the payoff cost to the sale price of your home.
Will my panels work across the seasons? On a cloudy day or/and during the winter?
One common misconception about solar panels is that they only work in sunny weather. However, solar panels are actually quite effective in a variety of weather conditions. While they do need direct sunlight to function, they can still produce electricity on cloudy days. In fact, solar panels actually generate more electricity on cloudy days than on sunny days, because the diffuse light is more effective than direct sunlight. Solar panels are also effective in rainy and snowy weather. Rain and snow can actually help to clean the panels, and the cool weather can actually increase their efficiency. As a result, solar panels can be an effective source of energy year-round.
Do I receive credit for extra energy being produced that I don’t end up using?
Yes. The utility bill will track all your energy production credits by month and use it to offset the cost of your electricity payments.
Utility Bills: How much can I expect to save?
Up to 100% of your electrical consumption could be saved.
Why do I still receive a Utility Bill with Solar?
Although going solar will help you save on electricity if you have appliances that consume gas, that cost will be your responsibility. Also the utility companies will charge a rental fee for the electrical meter that will be somewhere between $5 to $20 each month.
How will I know my system is producing energy?
Once your system is live and running you’ll have access to a monitoring application that will show you the daily, monthly and yearly production. This application will also show the health status of each panel in the roof and alert you if there are any issues with your system.
