Solar energy is one of the cleanest ways to power your home. Converting sunlight to electricity through the use of solar panels will also significantly reduce or even eliminate your electric bill. Additionally, right now there are rebates and tax incentives which will dramatically lower the initial investment of converting to solar electricity.
What size system do I need?
The correct size of system for your home or business can vary depending on several factors. In order to determine exactly what you need, Solar Kit Solutions has experts who will perform a free, full energy audit for you and show you what would work best for you.
Will solar panels increase the value of my home/business?
Absolutely! According to the latest figures from real estate appraisers, the value of your home or business increases by $20 for every $1 of energy cost you offset with solar electricity. After rebates, this would just about completely offset the initial investment for solar power conversion.
Will solar increase my property tax?
Not at all. Even though your property will increase in value, there is legislation that prevents your property taxes from increasing (Section 73 of California's Revenue and Taxation Code).
What about permits and rebate forms?
Local permits are required for solar panel / system installations. Our team of experts will handle all the paperwork necessary to get the job done. We will also take care of filing the rebate paperwork to ensure you get proper credit. SKS provides everything you need for an easy to use turn-key solar installation.
How much does solar cost?
Solar conversion usually runs $6.50 to $7.50 per watt from most companies. Solar Kit Solutions has complete kits, installed at your home or place of business starting as low as $4.95 per watt. When we say we have the best price available, we mean it!
How much space is required for a solar electricity system?
The amount of space required for your soalr system will be determined by the amount of energy you need. Your installer will be able to give you a customized plan before any work begins.
Do solar panels need to be mounted on my roof?
Solar panels are often roof mounted, but can also be ground mounted. Remember, you need sunlight in order for your panels to work efficiently, so shady areas are not a good place to mount your solar panels. Roof systems are the most common type installation.
