FAQ

Can I really get a solar system installed without having to spend any money out of pocket?

Currently with government incentives we can get solar installed at your property with no money out of pocket. Contact us to find out how much you can save.

Can my electric bill really be $0?

Some solar systems produce more electricity than is used each month, bringing net electricity costs to $0. However, there is still a minimal connection fee to remain connected to the electrical grid.

Do I get paid for my extra energy production?

Currently, most of America is under a system known as Net Metering, which allows your net electricity costs to be reduced to zero, but no further. In a select few places in the U.S., you can be paid for any excess electricity you create, in what is known as a Feed-In Tariff system.

How does a solar system affect my roof integrity?

With proper design and installation following industry best practices, your roof will maintain all its pre-solar integrity.

Can my HOA or neighbors prevent me from installing a solar system?

Arizona has a solar access law that provides varying degrees of protection against restrictions that can be imposed on you.

Will a solar system increase my property value?

Yes. According to real estate appraisers, for every $1 of electricity that you offset through solar, it will increase the value of your home by $20. This means that your home would increase in value immediately. (Seia)

How much electricity will my solar electric system produce?

The amount of electricity generated by a solar electric system depends on several factors, primarily system size, solar panel tilt angle and orientation, as well as your local geographic and environmental conditions. Generally in Arizona 1,000 watts of solar panels (approx. 4 solar panels) will generate 1,600 to 1,800 kWh each year.

How does a solar power system generate electricity?

When sunlight shines onto your solar panels, the photovoltaic effect transforms the light into direct current (DC) electricity. An inverter then converts the DC electricity to alternating current (AC) electricity that is used in your home.

How do I use the electricity from my solar electric system?

The electricity generated by the solar power system works just like the electricity delivered by your local utility. The system connects directly to your utility panel or circuit breaker box, so it interfaces seamlessly with your utility power.

Will I still need a utility provider? Do I need to be connected to the grid?

You will still need to be connected to the grid through your local utility. While you generate the bulk of your own electricity during the peak hours of daylight and demand, your utility will seamlessly take over and continue to supply your electricity at night and on very cloudy days.

How much can I save?

It’s a fact that solar electric systems can save people money, with many customers cutting their energy use typically by 50% or more. Contact us to find out how much you will save.

How long will it take to install?

The process of installing a solar electric system generally requires 30 to 90 days to complete all activities, including system design, permitting, installation, and inspections. For most solar electric systems the physical construction for professional installation will typically take one business day.

What size system do I need?

The solar electric system size you need depends on how much electricity you use, the amount of energy you are looking to offset and the size and suitability of locations where the solar electric system will be installed.
