Call us. One of our consultants will appraise your energy’s needs based on your monthly electricity bills. They’ll assess your area’s climate, your roof structure, angle, pitch, and orientation and suggest a system that would work best for you home. If you are happy with the plan, it’s almost done.
Not much. It may take a day or two, depending on your location and home parameters. Our crew is professional and well-versed in the solar technology. Once the contract is finalized, we prioritize installing the system within a day, without any compromise on the quality of the work and equipment during installation.
If you own the system, the new owner will pay for the system. A solar home is sold at premium. Studies shows that a solar home is preferred 20 times more than a non-solar home. But if you want to take it with yourself, the dismantling, transportation, and reinstallation of the system may cost you a little. In this case, you cannot claim the benefit of home’s value appreciation (hyperlink Increased home value) however. If it’s on lease or power purchase agreement, we make it easy for you to transfer your agreement to the new homeowner.
When you decide to move, give us a call, we’ll find an easy solution for you based on your preferences.
Yes. Studies show that installing a solar system increases the value of your home by 3-4%. A 5-kilowatt solar PV system can add about $20,000 to your home’s resale value.
Since you are not owning the system, the value of your solar system is not included in the assessment of your home’s value. But it still sells quickly and is preferred over those homes which don’t have the system installed.
No. Most states exempts the proud homeowners who install the system from paying any added property tax. Check here (Hyperlink State-Wise Incentives page) if your state have this incentive or not.
There is no a one-size-fits-all answer for this. It mainly depends on your budget and how much you like to spend on the system. Cash would work best for everyone. But if you lack the upfront cost, the rest of the options will still save you much more than you currently spend on your energy needs. Give us a call and one of our advisors will guide you after assessing your energy needs and qualification for different programs.
Installing the system on lease or signing a power purchase agreement bring the following benefits.
- No upfront cost needed on Day 1. Just pay an agreed-upon monthly amount.
- You pay for the power and not panels.
- You save up to 30% on your electric bill.
You can renew your lease agreement; you can also buy the system at its fair market price, or else return the system to your solar lessor.
Your lights, air conditioners, refrigerators, and other electrical and electronic equipment would work as they did earlier. The only difference you would feel is your savings on electricity. You won’t pay exorbitant bills every month, and can even sell to your utility company if your system generates more power than you need.
Through an arrangement known as net metering (hyperlink net metering). This means that a two-way meter keeps track of the electricity you draw or send to the grid. When you draw, the meter runs forward; when you send, the meter runs backward. At the end of the month, your bill would tell you how much your utility owe to you or vice versa.
Utilities around the world employ several methods to determine the pricing of your energy usage. It may be simple rate plan, meaning that there is a fixed rate per kWh irrespective of your usage. But most of the time, the rates are tiered. This means that the more electricity you use, the more expensive it gets. There are set prices for a given tier. When you exhaust your kilo-watt-hours in a given tier, you move up to a new tier for which the prices may be higher than the previous tier. Suppose, the cost of consuming 1kWh is 0.2 cents in the first tier. This tier is allotted 200 kWh. You consume them and you are now in the next tier, for which the cost 0.25 cents. And so on. This is called tiered rate structure.
Yes, if you want to save more money as well as the environment. Going solar, as is presumed, is not only about the environment. It is about saving your hard-earned money as well. Similarly, going solar gives you energy independence and shields you from the rising and fluctuating electricity costs.
If your system is grid-tied, your system won’t give you any light during the nighttime. But if it is off-grid, the blackouts won’t affect you. The latter, however, is comparatively expensive as large storage system is necessary. This is why, to avoid the blackouts, install a hybrid system. In this system, your usual energy needs come from your solar system and the grid. During a blackout, batteries would cater to your needs.
It depends on the sunlight your area receive daily. But it also depends on the electricity costs in your state and your home parameters. Contact us and one of our consultants will run a cost-benefit analysis of the system and will guide you further. Even if your home is not ideal, solar can cater to your needs well, saving your money.
Yes. While a solar system generates more electricity during summers, they are designed to work in all seasons including winters.
Since PV cells generate electricity from the sun’s rays, if they are blocked by the snow, they won’t generate electricity. But the panels are installed in a slope, allowing the snow to slide down itself. If it is accumulated, you have to remove it to enable the panels to generate power.
Kilowatt (kW) is a unit of power. It tells us about the rate of production or consumption of an electrical/electronic device. While kilowatt-hour (kWh) is the unit of energy. It tells us about the power used by a device in one hour. For instance, if a 50-watt bulb is kept on for 20 hours, it’d use up one kWh. Similarly, a 1000-watt device would take one hour to consume one kilowatt of power.
We are used to grid electricity. And thinking of saying goodbye to traditional electricity may engender some apprehensions. You are not alone in thinking so. However, it is not difficult. Once you go solar, you won’t feel much difference. Everything would work the way it did earlier. The only difference you feel would be added money in your pocket. How to start the process? Fill in this form (Hyperlink form) and one of our consultants will guide you more and address your concerns. We are there for your easy and smooth transition to solar energy. Remember, we proceed only when you say so.
