F.A.Q

Your system size depends on your energy usage, which is measured in kilowatt-hours. You can find this info on your electric bill, or in your online account with your utility provider. Sizing is a complex process, but fortunately there are plenty of online tools to help you out. For grid-tie systems, the quickest way to get an estimate is to use a solar calculator. We can give you a target system size and show you a few kits that might suit your needs. For off-grid systems, tally your daily energy usage on a load evaluation sheet, then use our off grid solar calculator to hone in on a target system size.

A solar inverter converts DC (direct current) into AC (alternating current).
Solar panels generate DC power, but most household appliances run on AC power. The inverter simply takes the energy you generate and turns it into a format that can power your electrical loads.

In a 2017 study in the USA, the results suggests that solar homes sell for 3.74% more than comparable non-solar homes. That comes out to about $15,000 more on average for homes evaluated in the study. Solar is a major selling point, so long as the homeowner owns the solar system. Leased systems are a different story, as the home buyer must agree to take on the contract and lease payments from the solar installer.
