“The sales rep was extremely patient and answered all my questions over multiple emails and calls. The crew did a wonderful job and made this the smoothest home improvement project that I can remember. The customer service 3 months after the install was also impressive with follow up emails making sure the system was producing what was estimated” - Jessica R.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I afford to go solar?

YES! If you can afford to pay your electricity bill you can afford to go solar. All the solar programs available offer $0-down financing, both for ownership and leasing programs.  There are also financing programs available that are not dependent on having a good credit score.

Are the solar energy tax credits and incentives still available?

The most significant incentive currently available is the 30 percent federal investment tax credit (ITC), which allows you to deduct 30 percent of the overall cost of your system from your taxes.  This incentive will be available in some form through 2021.  Certain municipalities and utility companies also offer additional rebates and incentives.

How long does it take to go solar – from start to finish? What should I expect?

Once you’ve signed your solar agreement, the process for Homeowners is very simple.

In fact, we take care of all the following :

-->Scheduling the site survey with our engineers
-->Completing a final design for Homeowner approval
-->Submitting permits to the city
-->Scheduling and completing the final installation
-->Scheduling inspections
-->Putting in the request for system interconnection from the utility company.

What size solar system do I need?

Solar system size is generally directly correlated to your homes kWh consumption.  One of our trained solar representatives will work with you to analyze your homes 12-month usage, and design a system that’s tailored to your family’s usage needs.

How much does a solar system cost?

Owning your own solar system is not as expensive as you think. The overall cost of a system is directly related to a home’s kWh consumption and the size of the utility bill.  
Don’t let anyone else’s system cost scare you away, there is no cost involved in getting a quote!

The cost of solar installations has reduced significantly over the last five years, and the 30% federal investment tax credit incentive really makes going solar a no brainer for almost every Homeowner.  
All programs are $0 down with monthly payments offering immediate savings over your electricity bill from the very first month!

If you want to lease there’s no cost for the system at all. The solar company installs the equipment for free, and you simply get to purchase the electricity the panels produce at a discounted rate.

How does solar work?

Is there a lot of maintenance involved in a solar system?

No. Solar systems are passive with no moving parts and are made of durable tempered glass and corrosion resistant anodized aluminum. They require little to no maintenance for the 25+ years they will generate power.   Cleaning your panels every so often is recommended, and tracking the production of your system over time is always a good idea so that you can make note of any changes in production.

Most system components carry 25 year warranties in the unlikely event that something needs maintenance.

Should I buy or lease my solar system?

The decision to buy or lease your solar system depends on your reasons for going solar.  If you want to maximize the financial returns of your solar system, buying the system is probably a better option.  If you’d like an easy, no-hassle, maintenance-free way to reduce your energy bills, you should maybe consider a lease (PPA).

What happens if I move from my solar home?

If you own your solar system, your home will sell at a premium. Studies have shown that owning a solar system increases the value of your home by 15%. If you are still making payments on your solar system, transferring payments to the new owner is an option for most programs. If that’s not an option you can either pay the remaining payments and include the added value in the overall sale, or you could make it a condition of sale wherein part of the proceeds from the sale would go to pay off the remaining balance of the system.

If you’re leasing your system, you can either transfer the agreement to the new Homeowner, buy the system outright, or prepay the expected remaining payments.

What are difference between micro inverters, central inverters, and power optimizers?

Power inverters are what convert the (DC) electricity your panels generate, into the (AC) electricity your home uses.

Microinverters: are small inverters that are installed directly under the solar panel, and offer the benefit of functioning independently from all the other panels and inverters, optimizing performance and efficiency in limiting conditions.
Microinverters are incredibly durable and carry a 25 year manufactures warranty.

Central inverters : are large wall mounted inverters that convert power for the whole solar system within a single unit.
Central inverters can be significantly limited overall by shading on a small portion of the system, and generally need to be replaced after about 10-12 years due to significant strain to the system.

Central inverters with power optimizers : are sort of a hybrid between both different types of inverters. Power optimizers offer the benefits of optimized performance and efficiency under limited conditions, while still doing the DC/AC conversion in a large central inverter.
