QUESTIONS ABOUT SOLAR ENERGY
HOW DO SOLAR
Solar panels consist of a multitude of small photovoltaic cells, which are made of silicon and other materials that create an electric field. Sunlight hits atoms in these cells and knocks electrons free, and these are converted into usable electricity and transferred to wires to power your home.
CAN A HOUSE RUN ON
solAR POWER ALONE?
Yes. The number of panels required will depend on the size of your home, but it is possible to run your home entirely on the power generated by your solar panels.
DO SOLAR PANELS
Solar energy systems do not last forever, but they do have a long lifespan. Panels can usually last for 40-45 years and top-of-the-line systems continue to operate at over 90% efficiency even after 20 years.
HOW MUCH DOES IT
COST FOR YOU TO
There is no cost down for most of our customers and we can install a new system for as little as $89/month. We also offer six months of payments on us.
DO YOU HAVE
Yes, Solar Pros offers an all-inclusive 25-year warranty that includes parts, material, and labor, as well as a separate 10-year roof penetration warranty.
HOW SOON CAN YOU
INSTALL MY SYSTEM?
We can typically finish installation within less than a month.
What are the
Renewable Energy: Unlike traditional energy sources like coal or natural gas, we cannot run out of sunlight.
Clean Power: Solar energy produces less carbon dioxide and has less of a negative impact on the environment compared to traditional power sources.
Lower Energy Bills: The installation cost of solar panels is split into monthly payments, and these are typically at least 33% less than electric bills from a utility company.
Tax Incentives: There are tax credit incentives at the federal and state levels for installing solar panels.
End Date for Payments: When you get your power from an electric company, you need to keep paying indefinitely. With solar, you pay each month towards the cost of installation and once you have paid this off, you won’t owe anything until you need to replace the system.
ARE SOLAR PANELS
BAD FOR YOUR ROOF?
When installed by properly licensed and trained professionals, solar panels are unlikely to cause damage to your roof. It’s also important to make sure that your roof is in good condition before installation.
DO SOLAR PANELS
There is little to no maintenance necessary for a standard solar power system. Typically, you will only need maintenance if outside circumstances damage the panels. They also do not need to be cleaned unless they get dirty enough that sunlight cannot reach the photovoltaic cells, which is rare.
