FRequently asked questions

Here's a list of some of the most asked questions that I get

How does solar work?

Solar panels are made of highly excitable, conductive materials. When the sun’s rays hit the solar panels, the reaction creates direct current (DC) electricity.  Since most homes and businesses use alternating current (AC) electricity, your solar-generated DC energy will pass through an inverter to become AC electricity. Then it flows through your property’s wiring and behaves just like the power you’ve been using your whole life.

Will my solar panels generate electricity during cloudy, rainy, or snowy days? What about at night?

Similar to how your skin still tans when it’s overcast outside, your solar panels will still generate electricity during cloudy, rainy, or snowy days — they just won’t produce as much energy as they do during clear days. Solar panels do not generate electricity at night since the sun’s not out.  Once the sun comes down you will be using the grid for electricity which is why you cannot completely get off the grid 

Does the square footage of my roof determin the size of the system?

No, although it may determine how many panels we can fit on the roof,  the system size is based and measured upon how much electricity your house is consuming.  
 

Will I qualify for tax credits, rebates, or incentives to help lower the cost of switching to solar?

Even though the price of solar panels and the cost of installing a solar array have never been lower, you may still qualify for extra rebates or incentives to make the total investment as low as possible for your home or business, every State has incentives to offer in order to bring the cost of solar down significantly.  

How does Net Metering work?

When you switch to solar energy, you’ll have an electric meter that works both ways:
  • It will show the utility company how much energy you consume when your solar panels aren’t generating electricity (like at night)
  • It will show how much energy your solar panels generated during the day

You most likely won’t use all this solar-generated power. Your excess solar energy will feed back to the grid and help supply power for the utility company. Therefore this will cause Net Metering in where you will be able to sell the excess energy your solar system produces back to the grid and earn extra kwh credit for your following bill.

What if I sell my house?

If you sell your home, with the equity you gain from the value increasing you can pay off the loan or financed amount through escrow.  Berkeley studies show that the home value will increase and other factual data research proves that homes with solar will sell 17% faster than homes without solar.
