How can I go solar?

Partnering with us is easy! First we’ll sit down with you (or meet by phone or video conference) to learn more about your solar needs. This way, you’re free to explore our many solar options without any obligation.

Once you’re ready to get started, we design the ideal, end-to-end solar plan for your property—including its layout, setup, installation, financing. When the paperwork is done, our experienced installers install your solar PV system with care and to industry best practices.

After we secure all necessary approvals, your solar system goes live! We also set up solar monitoring for easier viewing of solar electric production.

Why go solar now? Won’t the tech be cheaper later?

Solar technology prices have stayed pretty stable in the past years. Why wait when you can start maximizing the benefits now? With federal incentives, reduced cost on your electric bill, and greater improvements on your environmental impact—there’s no better time to invest in a solar PV system!

How can solar panels benefit my budget?

Installing a Solar PV System on your home or business can help you save hundreds—or even thousands—of dollars on your yearly electricity bills. Some governmental programs also offer tax credits for installing solar panels. Our solar specialists can help you navigate all of your options and maximize your yearly savings.

If I use solar panels, will I still receive an electric bill?

Unless you have invested in a solar battery system to back up your power, You will need to stay connected to the standard electric grid to keep your energy levels consistent, even at night or on cloudy days. Because of this, you will still be charged for any electricity you use aside from what’s generated by your panels. Thankfully, with Net Metering (applicable in some areas), the unused electricity you produce with your Solar PV System gets credited toward your bill.

What rebates can I get for buying solar panels?

Rebates and incentives will vary depending on where you live. The federal government offers a 26% Investment Tax Credit (ITC), allowing you to deduct 26% of the cost of your solar PV system from your taxes. New Jersey, New York, and other states also offer additional incentives.

How can I pay for my solar panels?

We offer a variety of easy financing options to help you pay for your system. You can also choose to lease a system rather than buying it. Speak with one of our solar specialists for more information.

How can solar panels help my environment?

Using solar panels can help reduce your carbon footprint by lowering the greenhouse gas emissions that come from operating your business or living in your home. These emissions negatively contribute to climate change. Some also cause health problems. By choosing solar energy, you can greatly improve the health of yourself, your family, and the planet.

What are solar PV panels?

Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels are made of materials that naturally absorb the sun’s energy. Through a carefully engineered system, your panels can take this absorbed direct current (DC) energy and convert it into alternating current (AC) energy—which is the type of electricity most buildings use.

What if I live in a cloudy city?

While it is true that solar panels rely on the sun to produce energy, solar PV systems still provide many benefits for users. Speak with our solar specialists to learn more about how solar power can benefit you. In addition, Powerlutions uses government data to show how much electricity your system will produce, based on data from the past 30 years.

What do I need to do to keep my panels working properly?

Because of the way that our systems are designed, they require little to no maintenance. Primarily, you’ll just need to make sure that snow and dirt isn’t allowed to accumulate too heavily onto the panels, as this will prevent them from gathering sunlight. Thankfully, your panels will be angled to prevent most accumulation. If you ever have a problem, our expert team of solar installers are always here to help.

Can I go “off the grid” with solar panels?

Technically, yes, but it can be a bit more complicated. When there isn’t enough sunlight for your panels to gather energy, the system will rely on your still-connected power grid to keep the energy levels consistent. If you choose not to stay connected to a power grid, you will need to invest in a solar battery system as a backup for when sunshine levels are low. Off-grid solutions also come with other requirements and conditions that will not suit most users in the long term.

Will solar panels work in a blackout?

Your solar panel system has a safety shutoff mechanism in place in the event of a blackout. This is to reduce the risk of power grid workers being injured as they try to restart the grid. However, solar panel users can also invest in a battery system for backup power during an outage.
