We have answers to your most common residential solar installation questions here.
Can I still get the 30% Federal Tax Credit?
It depends. The best thing to do is schedule some time with us and talk it over.
After December 31, 2019, the amount of the Federal Tax Credit for solar will drop 4% to 26% of the solar project. UPDATE: The CARES ACT extended the 26% Federal Tax Credit for Solar!

Do I need to submit the solar project to my Homeowners Association (HOA)?
As a turn-key solution, we include working with the HOA on our list. All we need from the homeowner is the contact information of the HOA and we will do the rest. The HOA cannot deny the homeowner's desire to add solar to the home.
What is the warranty period the system you will install?
The product warranties vary from solar module manufacturers to inverter manufacturers. Most of the components we use have a standard 25-year warranty, although it is always good to review the warranties before purchase.
What is the typical installation time?
A typical solar installation is two (2) days. This will depend on factors ranging from the steepness of the roof, how many stories the building has, to weather. To name a few. However, from the time we start to the time the utility company comes and commissions the system by installing the new meters can be 60 to 90 days.
Do you have customer service?

What happens to solar panels with hail?
Most solar panels are very durable and built to withstand common hail. If the hail is dense and uncommonly large, there is a chance the solar panel has damage. Your homeowner's insurance usually covers damage from a natural disaster like hail. It is always good practice to discuss your home solar energy system with your insurance agent for proper coverage.
Often, hail damages the roof and requires replacement while there is no damage to the solar panels. We will remove the solar so the roof can be fixed and then reinstall your solar system.
