Every day, our teams hear many questions from our customers on their journey to energy independence. We’ve assembled some of the most common questions and answers below. If you’re still unsure, please don’t hesitate to contact our team today!
Savings vary by home site, state, sun exposure, and many other factors. Our goal is to make sure you are paying less per month than you were paying before having solar on your home. Once your solar is paid off you will no longer have to pay for your electricity!
You will pay one bill for your solar energy and you will pay another bill to your utility for any excess energy that is needed beyond what your panels produce. Our job is to make sure that your total monthly payment is less than what you were paying before. Keep in mind, once your solar panels are paid off you will no longer have a bill!
Transferring your system to the new homeowners is easy. Solar is a huge selling point for home buyers and can often increase the speed of selling your home. Let us know when you are ready to put panels on your new home!
Yes. Many studies have shown that installing solar panels immediately adds value to your home and can help your home sell faster
If the power goes down in your area and your home’s power goes out, your solar system will not keep your power on. The power will be restored once the workers fix the problem that caused the outage. This happens because it is unsafe for a system to be sending power into the grid while workers are performing service.
Solar panels will still function on a cloudy or foggy day. The only time your system will not produce is when it is completely covered by snow. In this case you simply wait for the snow to melt. You will not be without power. When the panels aren’t producing you will simply receive your electricity from your utility. This happens automatically and you don’t have to do a single thing. For more questions please contact us.
Net meetering is the process in which your solar sytem is connected to the utility grid. During the day your system will produce more power than you use. This excess electricity is fed into the grid and you will receive it back during nighttime when your panels arent producing. Get ready to watch the new meter spin backwards!
