What if weather damages the panels? How sturdy are they?
Solar panels are built to withstand weather — they are meant to be outside, after all! Tempered glass and sturdy frames protect the solar cells. If your windows can survive the weather, your solar panels are not likely to be damaged.
Do the panels become less efficient over time?
We believe that paying a little bit more for the highest quality makes good sense, and as a result you have the most reliable system available today, designed for long-lasting service. That’s why we use panels with a 25-year warranty, the longest on the market. We provide you with the right system, installed the right way, the first time.
How do we know they are working?
Depending on the system you have, there ways that you will be able to monitor your system’s output. We will show you how you can watch as your system works to convert energy from the sun into electricity for you — saving you money!
How does this affect the resale value of the house?
Who doesn’t want to save money on energy bills? A 2014 study by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory found that homebuyers have consistently been willing to pay more for a property which includes a solar energy system. So your investment is likely to save you money on energy as well as increase your home’s value. Contact us for more details.
Will I have to clean my panels?
Only if the climate is very dry and the panels are set at a shallow angle. Most installations do not require cleaning.
How do solar panels work?
The panels take the energy of sunlight and convert it into electricity you can use for your home or business.
You purchase any electricity you use over and above what your solar panels provide. If your system makes more electricity than you use, your power company may purchase that electricity from you and give you credit against electricity you use during cloudy weather when days are shorter and your system is less productive. Many power companies even send a check to customers when the excess power provided by their solar panels goes over a certain amount!
Some systems allow you to store energy in a battery system. These systems can be designed so that you have electricity even during power outages. Contact us to see if you could take advantage of this option.
