Frequently Asked Questions - Solar Energy
Will solar power be my only source of electricity?
Not if you don’t want it to be. If you do not install a battery backup, your home will be connected to your city’s electricity grid to ensure a continuous source of power when needed. This is especially helpful if you live in a place that does not have consistent sunlight or where sunlight is not plentiful many months out of the year.
Will I need to get a new roof?
Your roof will need to be inspected to ensure that it can withstand the weight, especially if you are due for a roof replacement in the next five years.
Otherwise, no, there’s no need to tack on a brand new roof to the project. However, confirm if the warranty on your roof will be affected with the installation of the solar panels. You can find out more details on this by contacting the company that installed your roof.
What happens if my panels produce more energy than needed?
This is a great problem to have, because the energy will not go to waste!
If your home produces extra energy, it can be fed into the city’s grid, and you receive a credit on your utility bill. This is called net metering. In the case of homeowners living off the grid, the excess power goes into their battery storage and is saved for when they are running low on solar power.
What if I move?
Homeowners have a few options with their solar panels when moving. If your new home is only a short distance away, the solar installer should be able to handle the reinstallation of your panels on the new home.
However, if you are moving to another city or state, you’ll have to weigh the benefits. It will be costly to have the panels removed, taken to the new destination, and reinstalled.
You also need to evaluate how well solar panels will perform in your new home, the permitting rules of that new city or state, and what incentives they have to offer. Some homeowners opt to take advantage of selling a home with solar panels, as this increases the value of the home and is a selling point for many buyers. For those who leased the solar panels, simply call the company to have them transferred to a new location, the new homeowners, or cancel the plan altogether.
