If this is the first time you have considered having solar panels installed on your home, you most likely have many questions. The solar experts at Abco Design / Absolute Quality Construction are here to answer some of the most common questions we find that our customers have when considering solar power for their home.
What is Solar Energy Definition?
Many people are turning to solar energy to power their home. When you choose solar, with the right equipment you can generate energy using the rays of the sun to do so. This eco-friendly way of producing energy is becoming more and more popular as more people are becoming aware of the environment.
What is the Cost of Solar Panels?
When it comes to the cost of solar panels, you can count on spending around $20,000. This will include all labor associated with installation and fabrication as well as the mounts, panels and inverter. You need to consider the tax breaks and incentives available to your area that aren’t included in this price.
What is the Difference Between Solar Panels & Photovoltaic Cells?
If you have solar panel installed on your home, they are made of photovoltaic panels mounted to the roof of your home. Building photovoltaic cells instead means that PV arrays are built right into the building materials themselves. They are generally built into window, roof tiles or walls. Solar panels are the perfect choice for a retrofit system or remodels. BIPV are the best choice for new construction.
How Much Money Savings Will I See on My Utility Bill?
There are many variables involved when talking about the savings you will see when you go solar. Depending on the amount of power you use as well as how energy efficient your appliances in your home are will determine the cost. As a whole, you can count on saving about 2/3 on your utility bill each month.
How Much Maintenance Do Solar Panels Require?
The great thing about solar panels is the very little maintenance they require. You don’t have to worry about dusting or cleaning them off. When you have them installed, you do need to make sure they are no anywhere that is covered and shaded. If there is a large amount of leaves or snow accumulating on top of them, they will need to be brushed off to work properly.
How Long Does Solar Panel Installation Take?
Since solar panels are designed to custom fit the needs of your home, it takes a few weeks to complete the design and fabrication process. Having them installed doesn’t take much more than a couple of days, sometimes even less time than that to complete.
