Cut Your Electricity Costs Up To 100%

Reduce the amount of energy you buy each month. Every kilowatt-hour your solar system produces is one you don’t have to pay for. Going solar will give you huge savings on your electricity bills.

02

Lower Prices

The recent drop in solar equipment costs has made a solar energy system more affordable than ever. During the system’s expected life of 25 years, it will pay for itself several times over.

03

Savings and Incentives

Federal Solar Tax Credit (ITC)

The United States government offers a 26% Solar Tax Credit. This credit applies to the total cost of your solar installation and applies to both residential and commercial projects.

State Tax Credits and Local Incentives

Some states and some utility companies offer their own tax credits or incentives. Our technical sales team stays up-to-date on the latest incentives to get you the best deal.

Residential Off Grid Solar

Off grid home solar is the best choice for anyone without access to the electrical grid. Using a battery bank, your solar system stores energy throughout the day and is then on-call when the sun goes down. With expert planning from our designers, we can make your off-grid cabin dream a reality. These systems take careful planning, a thorough design, and ongoing maintenance.

FAQ

01

How expensive is a solar power system?

The cost of a solar power system varies depending on the size of the system that you choose and on-site conditions. Low energy consumers will not need a large system. The more energy you use, the larger the system will need to be.

02

How long do solar panels last?

Most solar panels are guaranteed to last 25 years and are expected to last even longer. The new technology in these panels has not been around long enough to really see the extent of their life. Here in our office we have solar panels that were made in the 1970’s that still work! Improved design and manufacturing should allow today’s panels to outlive most of us.

03

Do you do battery backup?

We are a certified Tesla Powerwall installer and Generac PWRcell installer. Battery systems require careful planning, a clear understanding of customer objectives, and a mastery of the regulations and electrical code that governs them. This is exactly what we do. Our project planners can help determine an approach to solar energy storage that meets your needs.

04

How much maintenance does my solar energy system need?

Typically your system is nearly maintenance-free. All of our systems include some type of monitoring that allows you and us to view the system performance and spot a malfunction early. An annual visual inspection is wise. Occasional cleaning can help system efficiency but is generally not necessary. It’s okay to leave snow on your system during the winter months.

05

How heavy is a solar panel?

An average solar panel is about about 44 pounds or 4 pounds per square foot. This extra weight is typically not an issue on most roofs. During a site visit our technical sales team will check your roof structure to be sure that it is in good condition.

06

What does photovoltaic (PV) mean?

Photo = light, voltaic = electric. Photovoltaic (PV) panels turn light energy directly to electric energy. No heat capture, fluids or pumps involved. Ultra-pure silicon, when exposed to sunlight performs the magic. We are experts in photovoltaic solar design and solar panel installation.

07

Can systems work with garage solar panels?

Yes, many of the solar system projects we work on for residential homes have solar panels on adjacent garages or detached garages because of optimal sunlight generation, tree shading, and customer preferences.

08

What about rooftop or ground mount solar?

The majority of our residential customers have rooftop solar because it uses a space that otherwise wouldn't get used, is esthetically pleasing, and often is favorable for sunlight conditions. For some homes, ground mount solar (solar with racks connected to the ground) is more favorable with some conditions or if there isn't enough roof space. We will work with you to determine whether solar panels on the roof or solar panels in your yard work best for your energy goals.
