Q. Aren't solar power systems expensive?
A. They used to be. But now, with state and federal incentives,
as well as innovative financing programs, solar is not only the
least expensive energy option, but it actually pays for itself in
savings as well as through the additional income your system will
generate for you!
Q. Will it work with my home or business?
A. To work, solar power systems require direct access to the
sun. Any obstructions will limit their productivity and energy
output. Our trained solar consultants will provide a detailed
analysis to determine if your home or business is a good candidate
for a solar power system.
Q. Does the electricity generated by my solar power
system work differently?
A. No. You won't notice any difference. The electricity
generated by your system is connected seamlessly into your existing
electrical panel, and is sent back to the utility grid when you
generate more than you use.
Q. Will I still need my utility?
A. Yes, typically. Remember, solar works when the sun is out. So
that's when your system will generate electricity: during peak
hours of demand. But your utility will continue to supply your
electricity at night, and at other times when you are using more
electricity than you are generating.
Q. How large a system do I need?
A. System sizes are based on the available roof space and the
amount of electricity you require. Because state incentives are NOT
available for systems that exceed 100% of your energy needs, an
analysis of your electric bill is the first step.
