Answering Common Questions About Solar Panel Installations
Solar panel technology is still new. That means many of our potential customers have questions about it. Solar energy is actually pretty simple. The panels create electricity from the sun’s rays. During the day, the excess power is banked by the Electric Company. At night, your home draws from that bank. Our systems are designed to produce as much power as your roof can provide. Some questions we receive include:
- How much will my utility bill be?
Simply Residential cannot guarantee what your electric bill from the power company will be after going solar. The electric bill will depend on the amount of energy you use from the power company after your solar production is subtracted, which is presented to you as an estimate based on your consumption from previous years.
- Will I receive a bill from both the utility company and Simply Residential?
Yes. You will continue receiving a bill from your electric company for basic service and any electric needs above and beyond your solar panel system.
- What happens to my system generation at night or when it’s cloudy?
When the sun goes down, any extra energy you produce during the day is pushed back into the grid, offsetting your energy use at night or when it’s cloudy. During the sunny summer months your system will produce the most energy, so the credits you’ve earned during those days of overproduction will be helpful during winter months when the days are shorter.
- Will the panels damage my roof?
No. Simply Residential is not only a solar panel installation expert, but we’re also roofing experts. Our solar technicians work side-by-side with their colleagues in the roofing department to ensure the solar panel installation causes no harm to your roof. Simply Residential provides lifetime warranties on our solar panel systems and our roofing installations.
- Do I need to purchase a battery to store energy?
Battery storage is not a requirement to go solar. We do offer battery installations to complement your solar panel installation. Installing solar panels with battery backup allows your home to continue to produce energy during a blackout.
- Are there any tax incentives for solar energy?
You bet! You may qualify for several tax incentives and credits if you install solar panels on your roof. We will provide you with information about which incentives and rebates you qualify for.
- What if I sell my home prior to the end of the solar service agreement?
If you sell your home, you have the option to transfer your solar agreement to the new homeowner. The process is simple and gives the next homeowner the benefit of cheaper electricity, which is a great selling point when your home is on the market. Our staff can walk you through the entire process.
