A Simple Step-by-Step Process to Solar
WHY USE SOLAR?
Solar is not only an affordable way to save money, but also cost-effective, sustainable, and eco-friendly.
Solar works anywhere as long as it gets sunlight, making it a convenient option for businesses, homeowners, and anyone looking to save money on their utilities. With the right setup, you can even go off-grid, allowing you to be completely self-sustainable.
Reduce & Eliminate Energy Bills
Save money by eliminating utility and energy bills, allowing you to use less from the grid and more from solar.
Increased Home & Business Value
Increase your home or business value by installing solar. Compared to homes and businesses without solar, your property will be up to 5% more valuable.
Works Everywhere and Anywhere
Solar works anywhere, just as long as the sun is shining, allowing you to go off-grid completely.
Help the Environment & Be Eco-Friendly
By ditching fossil fuels, you are helping the environment and those around you.
HOW DOES SOLAR WORK?
Solar is a very simple concept. A solar system is designed to produce all of the energy a home uses so the homeowner can stop paying for more expensive rates from their local power company.
How does the system work? When solar rays hit the panels, the system has inverters that change the solar energy into usable energy for your home. Through “net metering” with the power company, the energy your system produces is stored as a credit to be used from month to month. As long as your system produces the same amount of energy that your home uses, you can eliminate your bill from the power company and protect yourself from all future rate increases! Reach out to see how it will work for your home!
Sunlight activates the panels.
The solar cells produce electrical current.
The inverters convert the current to usable energy.
The net meter measures power usage.
Your home receives power.
Surplus power is sent to the grid.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
SEE WHAT OTHERS ARE ASKING
What is the warranty with your system?
There are 25-year warranties on both the panels and the inverters, along with an additional 10-year workmanship warranty to ensure you and your investment are protected.
What if I need to replace my roof?
Option 1: Reroof now with your system and include the cost of the roof in the payments (very common), with no cost out-of-pocket
Option 2: Reroof later on, call us to come out to take off the panels for a service fee, replace your roof, and then re-install the equipment
Option 3: Reroof later on around the panels because your system will protect the roof area underneath
What happens if I move?
Option 1: Most people will use the added value from the system to sell their homes with the system. The seller will be responsible for paying off the remainder of the loan. The new homeowner will then have a paid-off system and enjoy the benefits.
Option 2: Some of the loans are assumable by the new homeowner. Check with your solar advisor to get the details if needed.
Does Solar Add Value to My Home?
Yes; a recent Zillow Home study shows an average 4–5% addition to the total value of the home. (https://www.zillow.com/research/solar-panels-house-sell-more-23798/)
How do the tax incentives/credits work?
The Federal/Investment Tax Credit (FTC/ITC) is a dollar-for-dollar credit toward a customer’s Federal Tax Liability. It is calculated as 26% (thru 2022) of the gross system cost. A customer cannot claim more credits in a single year than their liability. Any remaining unused credit can be rolled into future years. This only applies to systems that are purchased and/or financed. For leased/PPA systems, the ITC is claimed by the solar lease company.
