Solar Energy FAQs
As an energy specialist we pride ourselves on transparency and integrity in all our dealings. Our goal is to help you and your family achieve a sustainable and more affordable future for years to come. With that said, we have found that there are some very common questions that potential new solar customers ask, so here are some anwers to these questions.
Can solar panels withstand hurricanes?
One of the number one questions we get from our customers, especially in Florida, is how well do solar panels withstand hurricanes? As you may know, it is important that your roof is hurricane rated, but the same is true of your solar panels. Most solar panels can withstand up to 140 mph winds or greater. That’s sturdy enough to withstand a Category 4 storm, whose wind speeds range from 130 to 156 mph.
How long does it take to install solar panels?
Nobody likes to deal with loud construction projects or disruptions of their day-to-day lives. So we want to make sure that our timeline works for you. Our installation process typically can be started AND completed in ONE DAY! You read that right. One day install as long as weather permits. In the unlikely case that rain has other plans for us to complete our project we will complete it the next rain free day available.
What are the financial benefits of going solar?
When you make the choice to install a solar energy system on your property, you save money on your electricity bills. Additionally you protect yourself against rising electricity rates in the future. Depending on the region you life in and the associated utility rates your savings over time can be in excess of $50,000. But that isn’t even accounting for added home equity.
What are other benefits of going solar?
Often people ask about the financial benefits to switching to solar energy, but what about the environmental and health benefits? As with other renewable energy resources, solar power helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Thus reducing our contribution to climate change and also resulting in fewer air pollutants such as sulfur dioxide and particulate matter that can lead to health problems.
What is a battery backup system?
Often when discussing solar panels and their benefits we are asked about Battery Backup Systems and if they are necessary when switching to solar power. Battery backup systems are useful to supply power if your power goes out. Each individual homeowner knows their power needs and consistency of their power grid best so we recommend consulting your solar specialist before making a decision regarding this product.
What if I sell before I pay off my panels?
One of the top questions we get is whether switching to solar makes sense financially? Not all homeowners plan to live in their home for more than 5 years. That is a GREAT question! Even if our solar panels are not paid off, you can still transfer the financing to the new homeowners. Additionally solar panels add an average of 17% in equity. That is a pretty big return on investment for any homeowner.
