How Much Does A Solar System Cost?
This is probably the most common question we get everywhere we go. The cost of each solar system is a little bit different. There are many factors that go into pricing a solar system so a “ballpark” quote is insufficient to the accuracy of your quote. Our experts need to assess the property to be able to accurately quote the solar system by visiting the property and doing a “site evaluation” or by using our eagle eye software to accurately measure the surface area of the roof to be assured the array is able to physically fit on the home. There are also shading issues that could occur due to nearby trees, chimneys or pipes intruding through the roof that make some solar systems less efficient so with careful design we must accurately find the azimuth, tilt, and size panels to counter your usage levels efficiently. A Solar system sold in Phoenix, AZ might be a lot different than one sold in San Diego, CA even though they might be counteracting the same size usage. So to accurately price a solar systems there are a few things that we need to take a look at before we price our systems. All prices are based off of your usage in Killowatt hours, roof orientation, and array direction.
What Are The Warranties?
Each manufacturer offers their own warranties, the one most panels advertise is a standard production warranty which usually means that the solar panel will produce a certain amount of energy for X amount of years. Many of the industry leading manufacturers offer warranties of 25 years up to 30 years for production warranties. Ask your Energy Builder’s Representative for more information on which panel offers which warranty included production, workmanship, and product warranties.
