When you get a quote to see if you would like to install solar panels on your roof, you will need to know a few things.
#1 Payback period. It’s important to understand the payback period for the solar lease. It’s also recommended to pay attention to the installation costs associated with this addition to your home. Be sure to pay attention to federal tax credits as well as these will dramatically reduce your total cost.
#2 The whole process. First you will contact us for a quote. A representative will visit with you and your family to determine how many sunny days your roof gets, how shaded the roof is, your energy needs, and of course the best price for you. Then, we will schedule your installation date. As soon as the panels are installed, you will start to see your energy bill go down. It probably won’t go down to $0 but you will definitely notice the difference.

Going solar is a big decision and should not be taken lightly. Your main objective is to save money. Remember the federal tax credits as well. Be prepared to talk to your account representative about your federal taxes as well as these credits to see how they will help you save money on the cost of solar. They should be very cost effective and your representative should be able to tell you exactly how much you will be saving by getting panels installed.
It’s highly recommended that if you have tall trees blocking space on the roof where the sun shines that you get these trimmed down. Don’t do it before the account representative gives you the quote, let him inform you if you need to trim the trees or not.
Another item that most people forget about is to try and determine how long you will be in the home for. Solar panels are often difficult to transfer from one house to the next. If you sell the home, it is probably that you will need to leave the panels on the roof. This is often a good thing though. The appraisal on the home should reflect that you have panels on the roof and thus increase the price of your house! If you do indeed move to a different property, its important to know if you are still in your solar lease or not. Either way, it’s very cost effective to move the panels, just ask your representative.
A common problem that residential and commercial solar panel customers in Los Angeles, CA. have is pigeons nesting under the solar panels. This can become quite a problem over time with the droppings piling up and dirtying the panels. When the solar installers come out to install your panels, they are at peak efficiency as they are 100% clean. Over time, and especially if you have pigeons, these panels start to get dirty and need to be cleaned so you can get maximum energy output. It’s easy to see the difference when you compare utility bills over time. If you do have a pigeon problem then it would be advisable to call your local pest control company. If they take care of pigeon issues, they should be able to install a mesh barrier around the base of the solar panels to deter wildlife from seeking refuge under them.
There are currently a lot of ways that the government is trying to encourage renewable energy. One of these ways is with the federal tax credit.

Solar energy is one of the best decisions you could make for keeping your utility bill down. There are a lot of factors that go into this decision though and there are some things that should be considered before making the move to solar panels. Is your roof too shaded? What direction does your home face or does your roof even get enough sun? How much will you be saving and how big of a solar system setup will you need? These are all very good questions to ask your account rep when they come to give you a quote.
Net metering is a system that the utility companies use to credit the owners of the panels for all the electricity that they produce. So basically, you only end up paying your utility company for the difference between what your panels produced and the additional electricity you used.
This is a big question for a lot of people. This is a great question for your account representative when he comes to give you a quote. In California, the short answer is yes and a permit is probably needed. Home Owners Associations might want to know about it as well. Be sure to check with any regulatory agencies who currently make decisions for your neighborhood. Either way, the panels will raise the value of the home considerably and the amount saved per month will make them worth it.
This is a very common question that we get asked. It’s true as well. Los Angeles, California is notorious for having rather polluted and cloudy weather. During cloudy weather, it is true that your panels won’t be converting as much of the suns energy into dollars in your pockets but they will still work great. Once the sun is back, they will go back to being 100% efficient at their jobs of converting the suns light to energy. So, no matter what, the panels will be working all the time except for when it’s completely pitch black out.
This is a tricky question to answer as it really depends on who installed the panels and how they installed them. All of our technicians have been in the industry for years and know the ins and outs of a good panel installation. It’s very important that your installer avoid using nails and bolts that are too long when securing the panels through your roof. During the inspection process, the account representative will be checking the depth of the roof to make sure to avoid putting unecessarily large holes into your roof which can result in leaks over time. The panels on top of your roof typically last for 30-35 years so that is much longer than a roof will last. You will most likely have to replace your roof shingles before you ever take apart the solar panels and risk leaks in the attic.
