KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

Learn everything about going solar
Obviously, solar power is powered by the sun’s rays. So the amount of energy a solar power system can generate on any given day depends on the amount of sunlight it receives. Solar panels produce slightly less energy when the weather is cloudy, and they don’t generate power at night while the sun is down. But when you consider the high electricity costs and financial incentives, solar is a smart decision. Even if you live in a notoriously cloudy city, or even Alaska!
Solar panel systems connected to the grid shut off in the event of a power outage or extended blackout. This safety feature prevents emergency responders and utility repair teams from accidentally getting shocked or injured if solar power systems send excess electricity back to the grid. There are special inverters and power storage systems you can lease or buy so your solar power system can kick into backup power mode during a blackout.
Solar panels convert sunshine into power. If your panels are covered in snow, they can’t produce electricity. But don’t worry; snow isn’t usually heavy enough to cause structural damage to your panels. Best of all, most panels are tilted at an angle and the snow will slide right off (which would be an awesome feature for clearing driveways and sidewalks). But don’t worry—if snow does pile up, solar panels are easy to clean.
Not exactly. When you install solar panels for your home, you’ll still be connected to the grid. This provides flexibility to continue drawing electricity when your system isn’t producing all of the power you need. You can send power back to the grid when you produce more than you use, which reduces your electricity bill or even eliminates it.
Solar panels are very durable and have no moving parts. They are capable of withstanding snow, wind and hail, so there’s not much worry there. As your personal proposal will detail, most systems guarantee production for 25+ years. They will continue to generate electricity for many years to come!
Depending on where you live, shingled roofs can last up to 30 years. Foam roofing will last anywhere from 15-25 years, and tile roofs can last up to 50 years. If your existing roof is nearing the end of its lifespan or needs maintenance, it makes sense to repair or replace it before installing solar. Since solar energy systems are designed to last for 25 to 35 years, it can be costly to remove your solar panels and reinstall them to repair or replace your roof.
Start by getting a solar quote. Your AmeriSave Solar quote will be customized to maximize your home’s solar potential. If you’re planning to buy your system, your quote will include a variety of equipment choices and financing options. It also outlines the value of any tax credits, incentives or rebates available.
Once you’ve made your choice, your installer will conduct a site visit to assess your property. Then your solar installer will file all the paperwork necessary to have your system approved. The actual installation only takes a day or two to complete, so your system can be up and generating solar power quickly.
