Q: How much is solar really going to save me?
A: This is probably the very first thought that crossed your mind, and with good reason…
It is obviously going to be dependent upon your specific situation and how much sun your panels can get (you can call us at 1-855-407-6701 to get a more accurate estimate), but we can tell you that the average home saves 50-70% on their electricity costs.
For example, in Hawaii, residents save an average of $64,000 over their first 20 years with Solar.
How do they save so much? There is simply NO BETTER power source than the Sun; it has enough energy to power everything on Earth and nothing on our planet can replace it.
Q: How much is solar going to cost me?
A: The thing is that Solar Power is at an unprecedented level of availability right now; it has NEVER been SO easy to get solar panels installed for your home.
Of course with more players comes more competition...and competition is a good thing because it means lower prices for you.
This competition has also created multiple ways to pay for solar panel installation:
1. Leasing – requires little or even no money down
2. Financing – this “pay as you go” option means that the provider still owns, maintains, and monitors the system so that you can enjoy the benefits (i.e. Saving Money on Utility Costs). Over 75% of all American homes have access to pay as you go solar.
3. Cash – It generally takes less than 10 years to break even if you pay up front.
Of the above 3 options, paying outright will save you the most in the long run. The most common approach though is through financing, which still provides more cost savings in the long run than leasing does. Many home owners finance through a home equity loan or second mortgage. That said, just about all companies offer reasonable terms between 8 and 20%. Still, it pays to shop around before you commit.
We will actually do this for you at no cost. Simply call us at 1-855-407-6701 and we’ll connect you with the best solar energy provider in your area for you!
Q: What kind of tax rebates can I expect?
A: In addition to the cost savings, solar offers a way to get some tremendous tax breaks. There are 2 ways you can save:
1. The Federal Tax credit is 30% of your cost (there are also credits for each state, you can see them for yourself right here).
2. You can also deduct the financed interest charges in your itemized deductions.
These tax savings can add up to be quite substantial; you could seemingly save 50% off the total cost once you factor in State and Local rebates.
The concern is that we don’t know for how much longer these incentives will be available. The more time that passes, the more likely it is that these tax savings will dissipate...

Q: Will installing Solar really increase my home’s value?
A: The short answer is yes it really will.
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) concluded that homes with solar sell approximately 20% faster on the market than homes without (and for ~17% more), so keep that in mind…
Q: I’ve heard that solar is a secured investment. What does that mean?
A: Well, you heard correctly. Being a secured investment means that you are free from the electricity company rate hikes. Every year these trend upward, but with solar you know exactly what you are paying.
Additionally, solar creates an energy independence. That is to say that we do not need to rely on unsustainable resources. This also allows us to break free from some our foreign dependence (like the importing of petroleum).
Overall, going solar points us in the right direction economically, politically, and environmentally.
Q: How long do solar panels last?
A: This is a great question. The warranty on most panels is from 20-25 years. The industry standard is to provide 80% performance after 25 years.
The fact is that your panels will actually last much longer than that, generating a good amount of electricity for 30-40 years down the road.
Q: How easy is it to get started? What is the next step?
A: Shopping for solar was once a long and painful process, but fortunately it isn’t anymore.
In fact, that is why we are here. We want to make this as painless and simple for you.
