FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

 

How does this system pay for itself so quickly?

 Our systems pay for themselves in about 3.5-6.5 years. In addition to the energy that they produce you also get a 30% Federal tax credit when buying one of our solar systems, and you receive a check from Washington State for up to $5,000, every year until 2020. We design most of our systems to get you your full $5,000.


Does Washington get enough sun for solar power?

Absolutely! We get plenty of sun for solar power. Additionally, solar panels are particularly efficient when they are kept cool, making Washington's sunny cool days perfect for producing solar panel; and the Washington State rain will keep your panels nice and clean for you.


How much maintenance will a system require?

Just about none. Our solar systems are extremely self-sufficient. We put them on the roof and you can forget about them while they go to work. The rain cleans them, and the snow slides right off. The only maintenance required is the occasional hosing off of any leaves that might fall on your panels.


Our panels are warrantied for 25 years, but typically last somewhere between 30 to 50 years. Our inverters, which convert the DC energy that the panels produce into AC energy for your home, are warrantied for 10 years.

How long will my system be good for?


While a south facing house is ideal, homes that face east-west tend to only be slightly less efficient at capturing solar energy. This difference can be made up with the addition of just a few extra panels.

What if my roof doesn't face south?


Home buyers love solar panels. Studies have shown that houses with solar panels sell more quickly, and for more money, than comparable homes without solar panels. Get solar today and watch your property value soar.
