Below you’ll see how you can make the most of
your time by asking the right questions.
How much money can I save by installing solar panels?
You should be aware of the economic advantages of installing solar panels before you get started. We’ll help by providing you an estimate of your possible energy bill savings over time and what your estimated monthly energy bill payments would look. If in fact, you move forward with solar panels, based on your preference for a cash transaction or financing opportunities.
How many solar panels will I need for my home?
The average American home needs 19-23 solar panels to cover their electricity bills. The number of solar panels you need is affected by three main factors: energy consumption, the amount of sunlight in your area, and the solar panels you choose. The average solar power system requires between 335 and 405 square feet of rooftop space. When roof space is limited, high-efficiency solar panels allow you to install fewer modules while meeting
your energy requirements. We will assess your roof and provide an estimate of how many panels your roof may require.
What is your labor, material, and manufacturing warranties?
Investing in a solar energy system for your home or business always come with a warranty and our satisfaction guarantee of work. When it comes to installing Solar panels, you’ll have the “25 Year Solar Performance Warranty” and the “20 Year Extended Warranty”. They are both through the product manufacturers. The “10 Year Workmanship Warranty on the Solar System” and the “5 Year Roof Warranty” where the panels are installed are serviced through Blue Energy Electric.
What discounts and incentives am I eligible for?
A federal residential solar energy credit is a tax credit that can be claimed on your federal income taxes for a percentage of the cost of a solar photovoltaic (PV) system. (Other types of renewable energy may receive similar credits but are beyond the scope of this guide.) The system must operate for the tax year and generate electricity for homes located in the United States. The IRS does not run light-line tests on what is considered "in use", but the IRS equates it to a completed installation. In December 2020, Congress approved an ITC extension providing a tax credit of 26% for systems installed in 2020-2022 and 22% for
systems installed in 2023. (Systems installed before December 31, 2019, were eligible for the 30% tax credit.) The tax credit expires in 2024 unless renewed by Congress. There is no maximum amount that can be requested.
