Answering Your Questions about Solar Panels

Will I still have an electric bill?

Your solar system will be customized to suit your individual needs. For some homes, this means offsetting a smaller percentage of their electric bill, and for others it can mean saying goodbye to their entire bill!

How will I know if it's working?

The first clue is the reduction in your electric bill! But better than that, we will provide you with free, live monitoring so you can see exactly what your system is producing at any given time of day.

How long do the panel last?

The solar panels come with a 25-year warranty. By this time, they have paid for themselves many times over, but many people will keep them for a good deal longer than that.

How does it work?

The solar panels generate electricity in the form of Direct Current (DC) from sunlight. This DC is converted to Alternate Current (AC) in an inverter. This covers all your electrical use in the home, and anything extra is sent back to your utility to be ‘banked’ so that you can use it at times when your system is generating less (night time, for example).

How much does it cost?

The cost of the system is determined by what size system you get, and the quality of the materials you purchase. A larger system produces more energy than smaller systems, and therefore covers larger electric bills. When determining the size of the system a home needs, there are many variables to consider when making the the best possible recommendation. For this reason, we send a trained solar consultant to your home to evaluate each individual situation before making our recommendations.

How do I claim my tax credits?

Easy! When you file your taxes, simply fill out this form for your federal credit, and this one ​for your state credit (South Carolina only).
