there has never been a better time to install solar panels


Frequently asked questions

The Government Will give me free panels

You may come across scammy solar advertisements about “free solar panels from the government.” This isn’t true. You can go solar for $0 down with a solar loan*, but federal and state governments do not provide free solar panel installations.

While the government won’t cover the cost of a solar panel installation, they do subsidize the upfront cost of purchasing a solar panel system through various solar incentives.

The federal investment tax credit (ITC) allows you to claim 26 percent of the cost of your solar installation as a credit towards what you owe in federal taxes. Depending on where you live, your state or local government may also provide additional solar incentives such as tax credits, rebates, or performance-based incentives.

*On Approved Credit for Qualified Homeowners

Government reimbursement of 26% ends in 2020

You Have to be rich to afford solar panels

Many people are under the assumption that solar panels are a luxury purchase, and strictly an option for affluent people. This isn’t true – thanks to the falling costs of solar and the accessibility of financing options, solar is a feasible option for many property owners.The cost of solar has dropped substantially in the last decade – in 2008, the average cost of a solar panel installation was $8.82 per watt. For comparison, the average cost for solar quoted on Home Professionals now is $2.96.

Do Solar Panels Work in the winter?

Solar panels need sunshine to generate electricity. If you live in a particularly cold state that experiences a lot of snowstorms, you will likely generate less solar power in the winter months than summer because of fewer sunlight hours. However, the amount of electricity you’ll generate in the winter will still be enough to enjoy savings on your electricity bill. In fact, during the winter months when the sun is shining, solar panels actually perform more efficiently due to the colder temperatures.

When your solar panels are covered in snow, they will not generate power. Fortunately, solar panels are designed to bear a certain amount of weight and the snow shouldn’t cause any issues. Additionally, most panels are tilted at an angle so next time the sun comes out, the snow will slide off on its own.

Solar panels generate electricity  on cloudy days and their color and angle promotes snow melt

I won't be able to generate enough electricity

Your system is still connected to the electricity grid, thus you would benefit from a net metering system. You are still able to keep your current local utility company, so if you produce more electricity on some days, you end up having more electricity credited to your own account. Therefore, if you need more electricity at night when the system isn’t running, you end up using the extra electricity produced to power your home directly from the grid. This is done automatically so you won’t notice any changes when the switch occurs whilst still have a low electricity bill.

  • How Does Net Metering Work?
  • Generate solar power for your home needs
  • Excess energy generates credits against future electricity use from the utility company - particularly useful for nighttime energy consumption
  • Use these credits to offset energy use when solar generation is low
  • You are only billed by the utility company for net energy use

Not all areas qualify for net metering. our representatives can help you determine if you qualify.

Benefits of going solar

As the cost to produce energy goes up over time, so does the price to you. Over the past decade, electricity prices have risen by an average of three percent each year. Eliminating or significantly reducing these costs will save you a lot of money in the long run. By going solar, you can hedge yourself against rising energy prices and make your monthly bills more reasonable.

Even if you don’t have the cash to buy a solar energy system up front, you can still reduce energy costs by financing your solar panel system with a loan. Most solar financing options require no money down and reduce your monthly expenses from day one of installation. As an added benefit, your monthly energy costs will no longer fluctuate – they will simply be the amount of your monthly loan payment. Over time your loan gets paid off leaving you with more money in your pocket.

  • Top Reasons To Go Solar
  • Drastically reduce or even eliminate your electric bills
  • Earn a great return on your investment
  • Protect against rising energy costs
  • Increase your property value

energy costs will continue to rise, solar stops that trend and puts money back in your pocket.
