Solar FAQs

You will be surprised. Seriously.  Though every home is different, our customers typically see a savings on their electric bill of 30-50% on day 1.  These savings add up and increase year over year as the utility company continues to raise their rates, while your solar panel payment is locked in and never changes.

Our company works with Tier 1 finance companies that offer the most competitive rates and terms in the industry. Our finance partners require no money down and interest rates as low as 1.49%!

The most important aspect of qualifying is how much sunlight your roof receives throughout the year. If you believe your roof gets a lot of sun, then your home is a good candidate for solar and you can stop overpaying for electricity. Not sure?  That’s why we are here! Reach out to us and we can put together an energy savings report for your home.

There really isn’t any catch. Just keep in mind that not every home is right for solar panels in RI, and the most important factors are your roof, the direction it faces and how much shade it receives. And that’s it!

You sure will!  In many cases our customers actually receive a check from their electric company for the electricity they are generating. At the very least, it will be substantially lower, if not $0.

This will depend on your home and energy needs. Our goal is to build a solar panel system that will create 100% of the energy your home uses in a year’s time, eliminating your electric bill through the net-metering credits your home has. In short, you will still receive a bill from your electric company because you are required to be connected to the grid.  Our goal would be to reduce that to as close to zero as possible. 

You will have access to see exactly what your system is producing, the electricity your home is using and the health of your system all through a simple app on your phone, tablet or computer.

One of our most common questions! At night, when the sun is down, your home will pull electricity from the grid as it does now.  The difference though is that you are using the credits your home produced during the day when the sun was up because your solar system will produce more energy than your home needs during the daytime.

Even when it’s cloudy, your system will still produce electricity. We look at historical weather data when calculating your annual production, including the number of sunny and rainy days, average amount of snowfall, and  other weather conditions. There will be days when your system generates significantly more power than others, but it will average out over the year, to the offset percentage that we calculate at the beginning of the project.

If you lose power, your system has an automatic safety feature to stop sending power to the grid. While the utility is working to restore power, your system will remain off to ensure that power will not be sent into the grid and potentially injure the workers in the area.

If you decide to sell your home and move, the system is fully transferable to the next homeowner. It will transfer over just like a water bill—and the new homeowner simply picks up where you left off. They will receive the same benefits of the low solar bill you locked in as well as the guaranteed production and hassle-free, no cost of maintenance. This process is simple and our team will help you take care of everything.
