What can solar power do in my home?
Solar power can be used to generate electricity for some or all of your family’s needs. Depending on the size of the system, you may even generate more electricity than is needed for your own use, which will spin your electric meter backward and could mean a refund check from your utility company. The electricity generated by your solar PV system can power anything connected to your home’s electrical wiring. Sometimes people install solar power for a particular application such as a hot tub, swimming pool, or garage workshop.
Generating your own solar power can mean energy independence for your home. In addition to saving money on your electric bills each month, you will not have a need for a back up generator. The next time electric power is out in your neighborhood, you can still enjoy knowing that your refrigerator will stay cold and your heat will keep you warm.
Will solar PV work for my site?
An important aspect of an effective solar PV installation is, well, the sun. While solar PV panels can produce energy on cloudy days, they don’t work in the shade. So if you are considering installing PV panels on your roof, we’ll need to be sure that there is adequate sunlight reaching your roof throughout the day. Alternatively, panels can be pole or ground mounted if your site will accommodate that. See our site survey information below for some specific questions that will help us help you.
What if I’m building a new home?
Great! With new construction, solar power systems can be integrated into the design. Additionally, if your home is built to Energy Star Standards, you may be eligible for a higher per watt incentive. (e.g. $4.50 per watt instead of $4.00 for most)
What will it cost to have a solar PV system installed on my home?
“Well, that depends” is truly the answer! Individual costs may vary significantly because each system is custom designed for your site, your energy needs, and your budget. Additionally, we encourage you to think of a solar PV system not as a cost, but as an investment. Investing in a solar PV system for your home will lower or eliminate your electric bill for as long as you live there. Many of the panel manufacturer’s warranties are up to 25 years. Best of all you are generating clean power for your home and for others, preventing significant amounts of carbon dioxide and other forms of pollution that are contributing to climate change.
What is the warranty on a solar PV system?
Solarus Energy gives a 5 year warranty on the entire system. Acts of nature and theft, vandalism are not covered. Most solar panel manufacturers give a 25 year limited power output warranty on their modules.
Will it cause leaks or damage my roof?
In our installation, we make certain that we utilize proper sealants and coverings to minimize the possibility of leaks, damage, or electrical risk.
Is there increased risk of electrocution?
We must conform to local building and electrical codes and furthermore undergo independent and municipal inspections to ensure reliability and safety.
Can I power 240V appliances and equipment?
The answer is plain and simply, YES.
