  • What is net metering and how does it work?

    From the very moment that your new solar energy system is powered on, you will begin to produce your own power. Net metering is how utility companies track and measure the power produced by your solar panels. With net metering, you will only pay for the electricity that you use that exceeds what your solar panels have generated. Vice versa, If your energy production exceeds your energy consumption, the excess power will be sent back to the utility company and your electric meter will run backwards. Net metering is how hundreds of thousands of homeowners and businesses are able to significantly reduce, or even eliminate, their electric bill.
  • How much do solar panels cost?

    According to a recent paper published by The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, an agency within the United States Department of Energy, solar power is more affordable, accessible, and prevalent in the United States than ever before.
    According to a recent study published by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, since the beginning of 2014, the average cost of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels has dropped by nearly 50%.

  • How long will installation take?

    Our team will handle filing applications and obtaining permits for the installation of your new solar energy system. Most systems will only take a day to install. After installation, your new solar energy system will need to pass inspection from your city and local utility company before being granted permission to operate.
  • How long will my solar panels last?

    Our solar panels come with an industry-standard 25-year manufacturer warranty and are built to withstand snow, wind, and hail. This means you will be able to significantly reduce, or even eliminate, your electric bill for at least the next quarter-century.

    Various components of your solar power system will need to be replaced at different times, but your solar panels are projected to continue to work for up to 50 years, with some loss in efficiency over time.
  • Will I still get a bill from my electric company?

    Unless your solar energy system produces and stores excess energy and your home or business is completely off the grid, you will continue to receive a bill from your electric company. You will also receive a bill for your solar energy system, however, the combined total will be less than what you are currently paying for electricity.
  • Will my solar panels work on cloudy days?

    It doesn’t have to be completely sunny for your solar panels to produce electricity. Even on cloudy, foggy, overcast days, your solar panels will continue to produce electricity. The energy produced may not be enough to cover your energy consumption since weather conditions are not ideal, but your solar panels will continue to produce power.
  • What happens if the power goes out?

    Unless your solar energy system produces and stores excess energy and your home or business is completely off the grid, for safety reasons, you'll lose power too. This is done to protect utility workers who might be working on power lines during an outage. It is not safe to send power out to the grid while workers are attempting to restore power.
  • Should I buy or lease my solar energy system?

    The decision to buy or lease your solar energy system depends on your reasons for going solar. If you are interested in maximizing the financial returns of your solar energy system, buying the system is probably a better decision for you. However, if you prioritize an easy, maintenance-free way to reduce your energy bills and help the environment, you should consider a solar lease.
