Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

How much money do solar panels save?

Solar panels can result in significant savings for homeowners. On average, homeowners can expect to save between $20,000 and $97,000 over the lifetime of their solar energy system, making it a worthwhile and cost-effective investment.

What’s the solar panel installation process like?

The solar panel installation process typically includes a site assessment to determine feasibility, obtaining necessary permits, mounting the panels on your roof or a ground mount system, connecting the panels to your electrical system, and completing an inspection. Once approved, your system can be interconnected with the grid, allowing you to start generating clean energy. 

How long does it take to break even on solar panel costs?

Solar panels provide a strong return on investment, paying for themselves in 8 to 15 years, or even as little as 5 to 10 years. Once the payback period is reached, solar electricity becomes essentially free, lowering or eliminating energy bills. With a lifespan of 25 to 30 years, solar panels offer long-term energy savings beyond the initial payback period.

Are solar panels worth the investment?

The decreasing cost of solar panel systems has made transitioning to solar energy increasingly appealing for homeowners. If you're mindful of the upfront costs but still eager to make an environmental impact and alleviate pressure on the electrical grid, exploring solar power financing options can be advantageous.
