Here are some of our most frequently asked questions about solar:
How do solar panels work?
Solar panels capture the sun’s energy as it shines down on them; the energy is then converted to useable electricity for your home. <Read more>
What size solar power system do I need?
It depends on how much electricity you use. No two homes or businesses are exactly alike so every system is custom-designed. <Read more>
How much does solar power cost?
Solar prices have become more affordable than ever. We can install a system for little to no money down and get you on the road to saving money every month on your electric bill. <Read more>
What kind of maintenance do solar panels require?
Since solar panels have no moving parts, they require very little maintenance. You just need to periodically make sure they don’t get too cluttered with dirt and debris. <Read more>
Can solar panels work at night?
Solar panels produce electricity when the sun is out during the day and rest at night. But you’ll still get all of the electricity you need to power your appliances since you’re connected to the electric grid through a process called net-metering. <Read more>
Do clouds affect solar panels?
Clouds do affect how much electricity is produced but they’re not always a bad thing. Panels can still produce electricity. <Read more>
