Below is a list of frequently asked questions about solar power system for your home or business.

  • What are the financial benefits of solar energy?
    • When you install a solar power system on your home or property, you reduce or eliminate your electricity bills and protect yourself against rising electricity rates in the future. How much you can save depends on the utility rates and solar policies in your area, but going solar is a smart investment regardless of where you live.

  • What are the environmental benefits of solar energy?
    • Solar energy, like other renewable energy resources, has many environmental benefits. Going solar reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which contribute to climate change, and also results in fewer air pollutants.

  • How do I find out how much I pay for electricity?
    • The easiest way to find out how much you pay for electricity (and how much electricity you use per month) is to take a look at your utility electricity bill or just call your utility and operators will provide you with detail information.

  • How does solar impact my property values?
    • National studies have shown that homes with solar power 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 bathroom renovation.

  • How do solar photovoltaic (PV) panels work?
    • 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 for full credit in most states.

  • Do my solar panels produce power on cloudy days?
    • The amount of power your solar energy system can generate is dependent on sunlight. As a result, your solar panels will produce slightly less energy when the weather is cloudy, and no energy at night. However, because of high electricity costs and financial incentives, solar is a smart decision even if you live in a cloudy city.

  • What happens when it is snowing, what happens to solar panels?
    • Solar panels convert sunshine into energy, so if your panels are covered in snow they can’t produce electricity. Snow generally isn’t heavy enough to cause structural issues with your panels, and since most panels are tilted at an angle the snow will fall off. If snow does accumulate, your panels are easy to clean.
