Frequently asked questions

Can I qualify for solar rebates and incentives?


Every job and applicant is unique. If you pay income taxes, chances are good that you can qualify for federal tax rebates. Duke power customers may also be eligable for a one-time solar rebate payment.




How much does solar cost?


The cost of solar has come down significantly in the last 10 years. If you have considered solar out of reach in the past, it may be a good time to take a second look. The cost for solar power per kWh is significantly lower than traditional power.

We'll be able to tell you directly if your site is good for solar.




How long does solar last?


You can expect your system to produce power for decades. And thanks to panels having no moving parts, you can also expect low maintenance during the lifetime of the system. For any maintenance needs along the way, we'll be just a phone call away.




How long does solar take to install?


The whole process takes a couple months. This includes applications for build permits and an application process with your utilty provider, installing equipment, and inspections. The process concludes when your utility gives permission to turn the system on.
