SOLAR FAQS

Installing residential solar panels offers several benefits, including:

  • Lower electricity bills and potential savings on energy costs.
  • Reduced reliance on grid power and increased energy independence.
  • Environmental friendliness with zero greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Increased property value and potential return on investment.
  • Long lifespan and low maintenance requirements.

Solar power, like other renewable energy resources, has many environmental and health benefits. Going solar reduces greenhouse gas emissions and results in fewer air pollutants like sulfur dioxide and particulate matter, which can cause health problems.

Absolutely! All solar panels meet international inspection and testing standards, and a qualified installer will install them to meet local building, fire, and electrical codes. Also, your solar energy system will undergo a thorough inspection from a certified electrician as part of the installation process. 

Net metering is a billing arrangement where excess electricity generated by your solar panels is sent back to the grid, and you receive credits on your electricity bill. These credits can be used when your panels produce less electricity, such as during nighttime.

Solar panels are designed to last 30 years or more. Over time, their efficiency may degrade slightly, but regular maintenance can help maintain optimal performance.

Many governments offer incentives such as tax credits, rebates, and grants to encourage the adoption of solar energy. These incentives can significantly offset the initial installation costs.

Solar panel systems are made of durable tempered glass and require little to no maintenance. In most cases, you don’t even need to clean your solar panels regularly. If something does happen, most equipment manufacturers include warranties.

Yes, it’s possible to go off-grid using solar panels, but it requires additional components like batteries to store excess energy for use during cloudy days or at night. Off-grid systems are more complex and may not be necessary for everyone.

Yes, there are various financing options available, such as loans, leases, and power purchase agreements (PPAs). These options can make solar energy more accessible without requiring upfront costs.

Yes, solar panels can increase property value. Homes with solar installations are often considered more attractive to environmentally conscious buyers and can fetch higher prices on the real estate market.

Solar energy can significantly reduce or even eliminate your electric utility bill, depending on your system’s size and efficiency. Excess energy can lead to credits through net metering.
