Do you offer an extended warranty to cover my investment?
One of the best available! Our extended warranty lasts for 30 years and covers solar panels, inverters, mounting systems, all labor costs, and includes gap coverage. The warranty is transferable to new homeowners in the event you sell your home.
What is net metering and how does net metering work?
Net metering is a policy that credits you for every kilowatt-hour your system overproduces and puts extra power back into the grid.
When your system overproduces, you can bank extra credits to use on a cloudy day, or at night. Every state’s policies are different. We can help you understand your options. Net metering can be confusing, and it’s best to discuss it on a call.
Is solar a good long-term investment for my home?
It depends on the roof you have and how much sunlight you get. That’s the honest answer. If you have a good roof, it is absolutely an amazing investment that will save you tens of thousands of dollars on average!
Will investing in rooftop solar add to my home’s value?

Will investing in rooftop solar help sell my house faster?
