We want to make the process of going solar much easier for you so below are a few questions to which you should be asking and of course, we would gladly help you get those answers. These are just fairly general answers to help you understand the process; each solar installation will vary in terms of what is best for you.
Should my house be in direct sunlight? If your home is in direct sunlight it can produce more power. In numerous cases, solar panels are positioned facing south where they will have greater exposure to sunlight. You should avoid having solar panels placed beneath trees or anything else where there will be shade.
Will panels damage my roof? Panels that are properly installed should not be damaging your roof. In fact, panels are more likely to protect the roof area that they are covering from light and heat. However, there are options to have a ground-mound system if you have enough land.
How much power can I expect to generate? Solar power systems have the ability to generate 25 to 100 percent of your electricity needs. To better understand your needs we will gather information in regards to how much electricity you use, how much you pay for it, and what you will save.
Solar panels typically have 25 years of warranty and the system often pays for themselves after five to 10 years. This means you have the potential of free electricity for the rest of their lifetime. If you install a system before Dec. 31, 2016, you are eligible for a 30 percent federal tax credit of the amount you spend.
