SOLAR ENERGY SYSTEM
Should I buy a solar energy system for my home?
Ask yourself these 3 questions:
Is your electric bill more than $100/mo?
Will you be in your home for at least 10-years?
Do you like to save money?
If you answer YES to all 3 questions, then you should absolutely schedule a free solar consultation because we can save you a lot of money.
HOW DOES SOLAR WORK?
Solar panels capture sunlight as direct current (DC) energy that needs to be inverted into alternating current (AC) energy. Once the energy has been converted, it transfers to your electric panel for use in your home, or back to the energy company. When you install a solar energy system you are creating your own energy, burt you still have to be plugged into the grid,and you will still be susceptible to black-outs unless you have a whole-house battery in addition to your solar energy system.
HOW MANY PANELS DO I NEED?
The reason we want to have a consultation is because every home is different and has unique energy needs. We will build you a system based on your current energy consumption (past 12-months) and scale it to account for degradation of panel efficiency.
WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU INSTALL?
We use the Hanwha Q.Cell technology. Most of our clients select the 400-watt all black Q,Cell panels. We also use Enphase for all of our microinverter needs, our monitoring needs and battery needs. Right now we are installing the IQ8 Enphase Microinverters
DO I NEED A BATTERY WITH MY SOLAR SYSTEM?
If you want your home to be fully functional during power-outages, a whole-house battery is the only way to make that a reality
IS THERE A TAX INCENTIVE?
YES!! There is a huge tax incentive right now. In August 2022 Congress passed legislation keeping the 30% federal tax credit for “solar energy property costs” until 2032. You can now get a 30% tax credit on your roof replacement if it is required as an essential part of your solar installation.
ANY SURPRISES I SHOULD BE AWARE OF?
Yes, of course! You may need an panel (electrical box) upgrade from 100Amp to 200Amp. Also in rare cases, the power company may require a panel relocation if certain utility lines are too close.
