One: The Sun

Sunlight hits a solar panel on the roof. The panels convert the energy to DC current that flows to an inverter.

two: inversion

The inverter works to convert the DC Energy to AC which can be used in your home.

Three: power up

The converted energy progresses into your electrical system to power everything connected to it.

Fourth-ish: the battery

If you choose to install a solar battery bank with your solar energy system, you can store excess power for use long after the sun goes down, and even during a utility power outage.

five: givin’ back

Excess electricity that isn’t used or stored will be sent back out to the grid and most utility companies will credit you for the electricity you produce.

solar energy

Reduce Your Energy Bill & Lock-In Your Energy Rate

Installing solar on your property allows you to meet most, if not all, of your electricity needs. With solar, you’ll not only be saving money each month, but you can also generate extra income through the surplus electricity that your system generates.

Say goodbye to those ever-increasing utility rates, too. By installing solar, you’ll lock in your energy rates for years to come. Be sure to look into solar battery bank options if you want to make the most of solar energy for your home and get protection from power outages.

State of the Art Solar Technology

We only install the highest-quality solar panels on all of our projects. The technology that we use has been tested to ensure longevity and reliability. From our inverters to the sleek solar panels we install, everything about your new solar energy system has been tested and confirmed to be the best products on the market.

Environmental Benefits

Sure, solar can save you money on your electricity bills. But it’s also known for the positive environmental benefits. Solar is a completely clean energy source. Fossil fuels and nuclear energy are damaging to the environment and create harmful air pollutants.

The initial solar investment might seem steep, but the environmental and financial benefits far outweigh the initial costs.

Low Maintenance Cost

Photovoltaic Solar systems (the panels that we install) require minimal maintenance. You won’t need to clean your panels because rain does the job for you. Solar energy systems have no moving parts, so you won’t have to worry about wear and tear either. After paying for the initial installation, you can expect to spend little to no money on maintenance. At Sun Badger® we only use panels that have at least a 25-year performance warranty. If anything goes wrong with your panels before your warranty is up, we’ll be ready to address it.

Cost-Benefit Analysis

Do you feel like solar might be outside of your budget? If so, look into the cost-benefit analysis that solar offers before making a decision. Many homeowners are able to easily afford solar with the help of solar tax credits. These tax credits won’t last for much longer so be sure to get started installing your solar ASAP. You can learn more about the solar tax credits here, or reach out to speak with one of our solar energy consultants.

Other benefits include energy savings and the ability to pay off your solar panels within 5 to 10 years of purchasing them. After your panels are paid off, you’ll be able to produce electricity at no cost. Additionally, you’ll have added a significant amount of value to your home or property.

Is Your Home Right for Solar?

Solar can work on almost any property given these few requirements are met. First, you need to own the home or have permission from the property owner to install solar. Next, your roof needs to be solid, structurally sound, and no more than 5 to 10 years old. Asphalt shingle roofing typically needs to be replaced every 15 to 25 years. In some cases, it’s best to install a new roof before installing solar. You’ll want your roof to face the right direction in order to receive an optimal amount of sunlight. Finally, it’s important to have little to no shading on your roof.

Residential solar is right for you and your home if you’re ready to start saving money and protect the environment, and if your home meets the recommended requirements.

frequently asked

questions

WHAT ARE THE WARRANTIES?
Sun Badger® warranties our systems for 10 years. We only use panels which have a 25 year linear production warranty. And our Enphase inverters are warrantied for 25 years.

HOW LONG WILL MY SYSTEM LAST?
We expect our systems to last 35 years or more.

CAN SNOWFALL CAUSE ISSUES WITH PRODUCTION?
Solar panels are very slick and we only use black on black panels, which quickly absorb light from the sun and causes the snow to melt and slide off.

DO SOLAR PANELS REQUIRE MAINTENANCE?
Solar panels require no maintenance. If you have any issues with your system, contact us and we will correct it.

HOW DOES SOLAR EFFECT MY PROPERTY VALUE?
Studies, have shown that homes with solar energy systems sell for more than homes without them. However, your property value will only increase if you own, rather than lease, your solar panel system. In most parts of the country, adding solar panels for home use actually increases your home value more than a kitchen renovation. https://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/22/realestate/solar-panels-and-home-values.html

DOES THE UTILITY BUY BACK SOLAR?
Utilities in most states are required to Net Meter.
