Investment and Incentive Questions

Why should I install a solar energy system on my home or business?

Solar is a great investment opportunity. It is great for the environment and greatly reduces your carbon footprint. Solar modules, once installed will extend the life of your rooftop by protecting it from the elements such as snow and wind.

Why should I go solar now? Aren't more efficient technologies coming to market?

This is an easy one because the sooner you get solar; the sooner you will enjoy its benefits. There are also federal and state incentives currently in place that will no longer be available in the near future, so if you want to maximize your investment, it is important that you start ASAP!

If you wait for some unproven technology down the road, you will have missed the opportunity to generate your own power now. Solar is like buying a home instead of renting – own your power!

Should I buy or lease my solar system?

We strongly recommend that you purchase your solar system in order to take advantage of all the state, federal and utility incentives that are available only to those who own their solar power system.


Another advantage of purchasing your own solar power system is that once you buy it, it is yours! Unlike leased systems, once you have paid off any loans that you have taken out, you will own your power! You will still be able to reap the reward of little to no electricity costs while saving the environment.


When you lease your solar array, you must either pay to have it removed or purchase the system in full after the term of your lease has ended.


With a lease, you will have to sell the remainder of the contract should you choose to sell your home.

Will adding solar power increase the value of my home?

Absolutely! Several published studies have demonstrated that installing solar power will dramatically increase your property’s value. 

One study from the Lawrence Berkeley Lab reports that homes throughout the country with solar power install sold for more money than those without solar power.

Another study from Zillow found that homes in the US with solar panels sell for 4.1% more.

Utility and Production Questions

What happens to my solar array when the power goes out?

To prevent any accidental back-feeding of solar electricity to the grid which might endanger line-workers; when the grid power goes down, the grid-tied solar electric system goes down, too.

However, battery backup technology is now available and when installed, it will allow you to power your home with clean renewable energy even during a blackout.
