Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a solar panel system cost?

Solar panel systems are unique to each home, and the cost will factor in roof size, sun exposure, shading issues, and any system obstructions. After a site evaluation, our award-winning solar design team will create the final CAD drawing of your customized system so we can provide an estimate.

How long does the solar panel installation process take?

As soon as you give us the go-ahead to do a site assessment, we guarantee to have your solar system designed and installed within 30 days. The actual installation process only takes a few days. Systems for smaller homes requiring less power usually take no more than a day to install, while larger and more complicated installations can take another day or two.

How much money can I save with solar panels?

With solar energy, you will see immediate savings on your electricity bill. How much money you save, however, will depend on the size of your solar panel system, your average electricity usage, and whether you lease or buy your solar panels. In California, average savings over a 20-year lease period can reach up to $30,000 by some estimates.
