Yes! Both residential homes and businesses can take advantage of tax incentives with solar power. You can save up to 30% in tax credits by purchasing solar technology for your home or business. Businesses can take advantage of MACRS depreciation as well as the 30% tax credit.
Solar power typically costs half as much as traditional electric. For example, if you were buying electricity from a local grid, you would be paying up to $.12 per kWh. And this can increase each year by up to 4%! Where as if you produce your own power with solar, you would likely only be paying $.08 per kWh with no chance of inflation.
Solar energy can only be stored if you have a storage system or battery. However, if you produce more energy than you end up using and don’t have a battery, you can sell that power back to your energy company in the form of credit. Or, if you need more energy than you’ve stored, you can buy it from the grid. And any extra energy that you do not use by the end of the month will carry over to the next month.
Work with us and we’ll handle everything for you! We hand-pick the highest quality equipment for all of our projects. We’ve researched warranty terms, financial backing and development, research and development, and overall cost. We use QCELLS solar panels and Enphase microinverters, as we found these are the best panels based on their track record and industry presence.
Every solar power system we install is engineered to withstand 170+ mph winds. This ensures your are safe during the winter months and hurricane season. We’ll attach the panels directly to the roof trusses of your home or business to ensure a secure, long-term attachment of your panels.
Solar panels requires very little maintenance! Just clean the panels twice a year for dust and grime. However if your home or business is known to collect more debris, you may need to clean it more regularly.
If you plan on re-roofing your home this year, we suggest you do it at the same time as your solar installation. This way, our installation team can work with your roofer and make sure your roof warranty is preserved. It’s very common for roofers and solar installers to work together on projects. That being said, if you added solar to your roof today, and then a few years later want to re-roof, it’s not too expensive to remove the panels, re-roof, and put them back on.
If you have a battery or storage component for unused solar power, this can be used during a power outage! Most solar power systems are connected directly to your home, business, or electrical grid. If you tend to lose power on and off throughout the year, you may want to invest in solar energy storage. Fortunately there are many options we can provide for backup power, such as the Tesla Powerwall.
If you’re looking to save money on your heating bill, absolutely! Traditional water heaters and storage tanks use a heating element to heat water for the shower, sink, washing machine, and other appliances. This heating element can use a LOT of electricity. A solar hot water system uses the sun to heat your water instead. This reduces the costs that come with a traditional heating element. Solar water heaters will save you money for years to come.
That depends! We install solar systems in Florida, New Jersey and Texas. Each state has different rules around solar panel installation. Most of the time an HOA will only ask for the layout of the panels on your roof. Either way, we’re here to help you learn more about your options, and find the best solar energy solution.
