How much power can a single PV module produce?

The average residential PV module produces around 300 watts of power, and the average commercial module produces around 350 watts of power.

How many modules/panels will my system need?

This depends on several factors, such as the percentage of your electric bill you wish to cover, your overall budget, your peak electrical needs, the layout of your home or business, etc. We will discuss your needs during our consultation.

Will my PV system take the place of my utility company?

The vast majority of our clients use Grid-tied PV systems to meet a percentage of the home or building’s electrical needs. These systems are not meant to handle the entire electrical load and the home or building always has the grid at the ready, should the PV system not produce enough power at any given time. Some months you may see a credit on your bill while other months your bill will be significantly reduced. Off-grid systems are designed to replace the utility and require ancillary energy systems that provide energy at night such as battery or generator systems.

If I start with a small system, is it easy to expand at a later date?

Yes, PV systems are modular and scale with ease. You can continue to expand as your to meet your needs.

How soon will I realize a return on my investment, (ROI)?

Residential projects may see a ROI in 6-10 years. Commercial projects may see an ROI in 3-5 years, depending on various factors. Ultimately, your location determines what incentives are available.

Are there federal or state tax incentives?

Yes, both--depending on your location. In fact, these incentives may improve your ROI considerably. (Please see your tax professional for details.)

Will inclement weather harm my panels?

No, weather should not be a concern for you. Photo-voltaic (PV) panels are made with tempered glass and are rigorously tested to ensure a long life. They are even hail-tested.

How long is the life span of PV modules?

The typical manufacturer’s warranty is 25 years; however, the average PV module could last 30 or more years.
