FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What type of government incentives exist for solar?

Both the federal government and numerous states offer incentive programs for solar. At the federal level, tax credits lower the overall cost of purchasing a solar system. The federal investment tax credit (ITC) for commercial installations is 26% in 2020, 22% in 2021, and 10% in 2022 and beyond. Purchasing a system before the end of 2021 has significant financial benefits with the declining tax credit.

At the state level, the quality of programs varies significantly. Luckily, many states have invested in growing renewable energy and have allocated money to do so. If you reach out to us for an initial discussion, we can bring you the latest information on the programs relevant to you in your state.

With our knowledge of the industry, we can recommend the optimal solar solution for you based on your location and financial situation.

How long will it take to install my solar system?

Solar system installation typically takes 3-5 months from start to finish depending on the local utility and permitting regulations. In general, this range is adjusted based on the size of your system and your utility company. Once you are ready to move forward, we provide a detailed schedule and handle every aspect of the process for you.

Will my solar panels still produce energy on a cloudy day?

Yes, solar panels produce energy on cloudy days. However, your solar array will produce less energy on a cloudy day than it will a clear, sunny day. Energy production is also influenced by other factors such as temperature, latitude, and humidity.

Our modeling accounts for these factors when developing your system, considering the average weather patterns at your specific location using precise data. After your solar system is installed, real-time monitoring tracks system production to ensure everything is working properly and producing electricity as expected.

Will solar panels boost my property value?

The installation of a solar system can increase in your property value. According to research by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), your property value increases $20 for every $1 reduction in annual utility bills. This means if your solar energy system saves you $200 per year, it adds $4,000 back to the value of your property.

This aspect of your installation delivers the following benefits:

  • Higher property resale value

  • Positive annual net cash flow from a higher mortgage payment offset by lower utility bills

  • Contribution as environmental stewards

  • Substantial tax credits for new buyers

Are solar panels expensive to maintain?

No, ongoing maintenance costs for solar systems are low. This is especially true for fixed systems with no moving parts. In most cases, periodical cleaning to remove dirt and debris is all that is required to ensure maximum output.
