Why Go Solar?

  1. Drastically reduce or even eliminate your electric bills

Whether you’re a homeowner, business, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you’ll generate free power for your system’s entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don’t produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility bills and you’ll still save a lot of money.

  1. Earn a great return on your investment

Solar panels aren’t an expense – they’re one of the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity bill savings, the average American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

  1. Protect against rising energy costs

One of the most clear-cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the past ten years, residential electricity prices have gone up by an average of three percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you’re a business or homeowner with fluctuating cash flow, going solar also helps you better forecast and manage your expenses.

  1. Increase your property value

Multiple studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

  1. Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price fluctuations in global energy markets.

  1. Create jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry adds jobs many times faster than the overall U.S. economy. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and cannot be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.

  1. Protect the environment

Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical residential solar panel system will eliminate three to four tons of carbon emissions each year—the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

Step 2. Engineering & Design

After completion of the site survey, our engineers will design your plan set to submit for permitting and utility approval.

Step 3. Gov’t and Utility Approval

We submit all documents and applications to your utility and local municipality for approval.

Step 4. Installation

Upon approval from your utility and local municipality we’ll schedule your install which takes 2 days or less depending on your system size.

Step 5. Inspections

The city will come inspect your new solar system followed by your utility company and grant Permission to Operate (PTO), then your system is turned on!

Step 6. Save $$$

Watch your utility bill disappear!



All major system components are covered by manufacturers’ warranties that span from 20-30 years on solar panels and 12-25 years on inverters


Every installation is guaranteed by a 20-year Workmanship warranty


This is totally dependent on your utility company, solar system size, and electricity usage after going solar. In most cases, if your system is properly sized and your electricity usage remains the same post solar installation you should not have a utility bill on an annual basis.

When you install a solar energy system on your property, you save money on your electricity bills and lock in your rate protecting yourself against rising electricity rates in the future. Installing a solar system also increases the value of your home. Additionally, the Federal Government provides a tax credit of 26% of the total system cost.

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

On average, from the day you sign up to the day your system is turned on it’s about 90 days. However, certain cities and utilities may take more or less time to approve permits and interconnection applications. This can change the amount of time plus or minus 60 days from the average.

Generally, it is the homeowner’s responsibility to monitor their system via the provided app. However, we also offer proactive system monitoring to take the worry out of going solar.

Studies have shown that homes with solar energy systems sell for more than homes without them. However, your property value will only increase if you own, rather than lease, your solar panel system. In most parts of the country, going solar will actually increase your property value more than a kitchen renovation.

Solar panels absorb the sun’s energy throughout the day and convert it into direct current (DC) electricity. Most homes and businesses run on alternating current (AC) electricity, so the DC electricity is then passed through an inverter to convert it to usable AC electricity. At that point, you either use the electricity in your house or send it back to the electric grid.

If you are interested in maximizing the financial returns of your solar energy system, buying the system is probably a better decision for you. However, if you are not able to take advantage of the tax credit, leasing may be a better option.

Net metering is the system that utilities use to credit solar energy system owners for the electricity produced by their solar panels. With net metering, you get credit for the excess energy you produce and send back to the grid. Net metering policies differ from state to state, and utility to utility.
