FAQ: Residential Solar Power Installation in Texas

FAQ: Residential Solar Power Installation in TexasThey call it going green, but it should be called going yellow, or orange, or however you perceive the sun's color. Solar power is hot, both in the literal sense and because of what's smart and environmentally friendly. Solar is a great way to make a positive difference in the rapid consumption of our natural resources. If you're considering converting your home to solar energy completely or partially, congratulations, you're on your way to making a great choice! This FAQ will answer a few questions you may have about the process and how the conversion benefits you and the earth!

Q. How do I know if my property qualifies to be solar powered?

A. Does your home have a roof? Does it have any property surrounding it? Even partial solar power can make a huge difference in your electric bill so if space is a concern of yours just know that there are ways to make it work, one way or another, regardless of how much roof or square footage your property has.

Q. Will solar power help me save on my monthly energy bills?

A. Absolutely! The energy you create with your home's solar energy will be credited toward your electric bill, which can result in drastic savings over the course of home ownership. If you create more energy than you use, the energy can be saved for use in winter or possibly sold back to the utility company.

Q. Does installing solar power increase my home value?

A. There are some studies that show for every $1 of electricity that's offset by the use of solar energy it can increase the value of a home by $20. In most cases this means that the solar system pays for itself as soon as it is installed at its net cost, after tax credits!

Q. How long will a solar system last?

A. Modern solar panels utilized in a controlled environment have proved to work in excess of 25 years. While the environment in which a solar system is installed can alter its potential lifespan, in a relatively dry place such as Texas there is a good chance it will last much longer.

Q. How much maintenance is required for a solar system?

A. Most solar systems do not utilize moving parts, which makes them virtually maintenance free. You may have to remove natural debris from them on occasion depending on the weather where you live, but that's about it.
