    • Do Solar Panels Work on Cloudy Days?
      Solar panels can still produce some electricity on a cloudy day, but they may not be able to produce as much. Solar panels work by converting sunlight into electrical energy. While clouds can block some of the sun's rays, they do not completely block out all sunlight.
    • Do Solar Panels Need Maintenance?
      The good news is that solar panels are designed to be virtually maintenance-free. In most cases, the only thing you need to do is keep them clean. You can use a brush or hose to remove any buildup of dirt, dust, and bird droppings. Special cleaners are available for removing stubborn stains. It's best to clean your solar panels every few months to maximize the amount of sunlight that reaches the cells.
    • What Other Incentives Are Available?
      The state and federal government may offer numerous incentives when you install solar panels. For example, you may be eligible for a tax credit or be exempt from property taxes for a certain number of years. In the long run, investing in solar energy can lead to considerable savings.
    • How Can Solar Power Save Me Money?
      Solar power systems take energy from the sun and convert it into usable energy. This greatly reduces the amount of money you owe to your utility company every month. In some cases, you may even be able to eliminate your utility bills entirely.
    • How Long Does Solar Installation Take?
      There are several factors that can affect the time it takes to install your solar panels. For example, the size of the panels you have chosen and where they are being installed will greatly influence the lengthiness of the process. We will determine the size of the system you need and the length of time it will take during your evaluation. A solar installation can often take between 10-12 weeks.
    • What Is the Cost of Solar?
      No two solar panel installations cost the same. Every business and home is different, which means the price of your system will be customized to each situation. Some common factors taken into consideration include how much space you have on your property and what type of solar panels you choose.
