Frequently Asked Solar Questions
How much does solar cost?
There isn’t an exact number when it comes to the cost of solar power. The requirements of each home or business will vary, so your quote will be unique to you. There are a number of factors that we take into consideration during your free consultation:
- How much energy you use
- How much space you have for installation
- Your choice of solar panels
What size solar power system do I need?
We will determine this during the on-site evaluation. Our energy consultant will provide you with a proposal, including the layout of a system that will fit the space available and will help you meet your energy goals.
How do I save money by installing solar energy in California?
Because solar power uses energy from the sun, you can reduce the amount you pay for electricity each month; you may even be able to eliminate this bill completely. Over the life of the solar panels, they essentially pay for themselves, and then some, so you can be sure you are saving money in the long-term.

What are some incentives of installing solar?
Each state provides homeowners and business owners with different incentives for installing solar panels. There are also federal solar incentives that may be available. For instance, there may be a tax credit available to you. Or in some cases, you may be exempt from property taxes for several years. We will help you understand which incentives may apply to your situation.
How long does the solar installation project take?
Normally, we can get through the entire process 10 to 12 weeks. This includes everything that needs to be done, including installation and inspection. There may be certain situations that could affect this timeline.

Nope. We can assist with everything. We can help with the application process, paperwork for permits, seek any possible rebates, determine incentives available to you, help with interconnection agreements, install the solar panels and setup inspection. We are even available for post-installation maintenance. We’ve got your back.
