New Roofs

One of the most important first steps to going solar is checking the condition of your roof. Generally, if your roof is over 20 years old, you’re most likely going to have to replace it in the coming months or years. Even if your roof is only half that old, it may not make sense to install solar panels, only to be forced to replace your roof in a few years. If you need a new roof, we’ve got you covered! We can easily add a new roof to your solar project, and best of all roll it into the solar financing. That means no money out of pocket and your new roof may even qualify (at least in part) for the same 30% federal tax credit you get for going solar. If that’s not enough reason to get your roof done along with solar, consider this; your brand new roof will absolutely raise the value of your home AND we can often still save you money vs. your monthly utility bill.

Main Panel Upgrades

Most homes are already solar-ready, especially if it was built within the last 25 – 30 years. However, older homes will sometimes require a main panel upgrade in order to go solar. A good rule of thumb is this – as long as your main panel is at least 200 amps (sometimes even as low as 150 amps), you will most likely not need to upgrade your main electrical panel. But if that’s not the case, again we have you covered. We can easily include a main panel upgrade to your solar project, which also qualifies for 100% financing and the federal tax credit, raises the value of your home and can often still be less than your current electric bill every month.

I am so glad I found Rob for my solar installation. His passion for solar energy and detailed knowledge about the options to choose from were genuinely impressive, and set him apart from other providers I spoke with. He was directly involved and readily available throughout the entire process - from selecting the optimal configuration and setup for my home and its energy needs (now and in the future), through installation and activating the system. My installation was seamless, and the system has been working great ever since. Thank you Rob!

Everything about Solar Equipment

Solar equipment encompasses a wide range of technological components that enable the harnessing and utilization of solar energy. This includes solar panels, inverters, batteries, and charge controllers, each playing a crucial role in converting sunlight into usable electricity.

Key Solar System Components

A solar electric supply system comprises several essential elements that work together to convert solar energy into usable electricity. The key components of this system are:

  1. Solar panels: These capture sunlight and convert it into Direct Current (DC) electricity.
  2. Inverter: The inverter converts DC electricity into alternating current (AC) electricity suitable for household use.
  3. Racking and Mounting: Racks and mounting structures hold solar panels securely in place on rooftops, the ground, or any suitable location.
  4. Batteries (optional): For off-grid systems or energy storage, batteries store excess electricity for later use during cloudy days or at night.
  5. Charge Controller (optional): In off-grid systems, this component regulates the battery charging process to prevent overcharging.

These components form the backbone of a solar energy system, enabling a renewable source of power.

How to Choose the Most Suitable Solar Products

When selecting the most suitable solar products, consider a few factors. First, evaluate your energy requirements and the available space for solar equipment. Next, assess your budget and explore financing options if needed. Look for solar equipment that aligns with your specific requirements and needs.

  • Solar batteries: Solar batteries store excess solar energy for use at night or on cloudy days.
  • Solar thermal collectors: Solar thermal collectors absorb sunlight and convert it into heat, which can be used for heating water or space.
  • Solar lights: Solar lights are powered by solar energy and do not require batteries or electricity.

Solar products offer a number of benefits, including:

  • Reduced reliance on fossil fuels: Solar products can help you reduce your reliance on fossil fuels, which can help to improve air quality and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Lower energy bills: Solar products can help you lower your energy bills, as they can generate electricity for your home or business.
  • Increased property value: Solar products can increase the value of your property.
  • Self-sufficiency: Solar products can help you become more self-sufficient in terms of your energy needs.

Yes, they can be a very good investment. Solar products can help you save on energy costs, contribute to reducing your carbon footprint, and in many cases, can increase the value of your property.

Solar panels are most effective in areas with high sunlight exposure, but they can also generate power on cloudy days. They do need daylight to operate, but they don’t necessarily need direct sunlight.

Yes, solar products can be installed in a variety of building types. However, the feasibility and efficiency of installation may depend on factors like roof angle, amount of sunlight, and local regulations.
