A Personal Site Visit is the Best Way to Start Your Energy Project

Sharing Your Energy History is the First Step to Saving

Giving us access to your energy data history is as simple as clicking the link. Utility API is approved by the utility and completely safe! No personal information is ever exchanged. All we receive is a spreadsheet that shows your energy history in numbers. We use your history of energy use to estimate what the future will be like when you are using solar to generate your own energy.

We need your energy data! INTERVAL DATA – The easiest way to give us your energy data is via an email link we can send you. It is a simple and safe process that is approved of by all major utility companies. Ask us to send you the link if we have no already sent it.

Access to your roof

Access to your roof may involve us bringing a ladder, or having to climb a set of stairs, or perhaps your facility manager has the key for a secure roof access. Ether way please let us know where your roof access is and what form of access is existing. You are always welcome to join us on the roof but safety comes first!

Measurements and Photos

We generally take photos of specific areas of your roof, check for damage that could affect the solar project, and take measurements to help us in the design process. Depending on the size of roof this process could take from 15 minutes to 2 hours.

Electrical Room or Electrical Meter

We will also need access to your electrical room. This room could be locked, or only your facility manager has a key. Please let us know in advance if you are unsure of where your electrical room is.

When will I get the results?

A site visit will help us speed the process, and in most cases we will bring preliminary data with us to show you the potential savings from solar. We might not have the final cost of your project determined yet, but a site visit will speed the process along in a big way!

Frequently Asked Questions - Residential Solar

How much does solar cost?

If you’re interested in purchasing a system outright, it can cost anywhere from $6,000 to $50, 000 + depending on how much electricity you consume. Most systems pay for themselves within 5 to 7 years.

What do you need from me to determine if solar is right for my home?

All we need is your contact information (name, phone number and address) and a copy of your electricity bill. From there we can give you an idea if solar will work for you. If everything looks good, we will set up a time to visit your home and guide you through the rest of the process.

What are the incentives for installing solar?

The Federal Government is offering to pay 30% of the cost of your installation in the form of a solar tax credit for residential and commercial installations. That means that if your systems costs $30, 000 – you can expect to receive $9,000 back from the Federal Government in the form of a tax credit. Please consult with your tax adviser to determine your tax appetite when taking advantage of the 30% solar tax credit. There are also state rebates available that are allocated through your utility company. We can help you!

Who processes the paperwork, permit, rebate application, etc.?

We will process all paperwork associated with the solar permit, rebate application, and interconnection agreement with the utility company. You will need to speak with your accountant or financial advisor regarding filing the appropriate paperwork for the 30% federal tax credit.

Do you monitor my system during the warranty period?

Yes! We review every system on a regular basis during the warranty period, to ensure they are working properly and there are no issues. If an issue occurs we are notified via email and/or text message and work to resolve the issue within 24 hours.

What are the benefits of micro-inverters versus the traditional string inverters?

Traditional string inverters can be a cost-effective choice depending on how large the project is. However, we generally recommend using micro-inverters and here’s why:

 Micro-inverters tend to outperform string inverters, anywhere from 3-20%. In instance with shading, micro-inverters are always the best choice.

 Enphase micro-inverters come with free monitoring for the life of the system. The solar modules communicate with the Envoy via your regular power lines. There’s also an iPhone/Pad application you can use to see how much your system is producing in real time.

 Enphase micro-inverters protect you from large scale system shutdowns. If a traditional string inverter fails, your entire system stops working. If an Enphase micro-inverter fails, you only lose that one inverter.

 Enphase will reimburse you for any power lost due to manufacturing defects.

 Enphase micro-inverters come with unprecedented 25 years warranty.

How long can I expect my system to last for?

String inverters are typically warranted for 10-15 years and you can expect them to last at least that long. Micro-inverters are warranted and expected at last 25 years. Solar modules are warranted for 25-30 and expected to last that long or even longer.

Will a solar installation add value to my home?

A study done by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory found that solar homes sell 20% faster and for 17% more than comparable homes in the same area! Solar homes also appreciate more quickly. Shea Homes’ houses in California equipped with solar increased in value by over 55% compared to about 45% for a comparison conventional community.

Frequently Asked Questions - Energy Storage / Batteries

Is Energy Storage for Everyone?

Yes! Energy storage can be a life saver at home, and also facilitate in charging your vehicle. Commercial business can benefit the most in dollar savings with energy storage by reducing demand even after the sun has set.

Where will the energy storage system go?

Energy storage depends on the size of batteries needed for your specific goal. For a large commercial property this might require creating a space near your electrical panel room. For homes and smaller commercial businesses all you need is about the size of a close space, or a single wall area near your main service panel.

How much does energy storage cost?

Energy storage MUST be evaluated before quoting prices. This is a very powerful technology and every system is specific. Some commercial manufacturing can see a positive payback within 1 to 2 years – and for residential homes the cost offset is the priceless safety benefit from having energy in emergencies and blackouts.

How long does the energy storage process take?

Modeling an energy storage system requires about 5 days to calculate and a site visit MUST be completed to analyse the location of installation. We also need your interval data from your utility which can be sent via an email link we will send you. We recommend every commercial business to have an energy storage analysis completed since the result can vary in every imaginable way.
