Solar Power FAQ
intentionally blank, please do not delete or move
What about snow/wind/hail?
While Wisconsin weather poses a challenge to solar panels, each system is designed to withstand such weather conditions. In the 10+ years of solar energy experience, we’ve never had a solar panel or system damaged by weather events.
Will my roof leak?
No. We utilize only the best roof attachment and flashing methods, designed specifically for the roof we are installing on. We believe in spending a bit more money and time to ensure a leak proof installation. We refuse to take shortcuts, especially when it comes to roof penetrations.
Does solar even work in Wisconsin?
Yes! While we get less sunlight than say Arizona, Solar Energy System still work well here in Wisconsin. Each system is designed to maximize the solar output of a particular location. When presenting a proposal, we consider several site specific factors to estimate the annual solar energy production.
How much do solar panels weigh?
The solar panels themselves weigh between 35-55 lbs each, but collectively, a solar panel system weighs between 2.5 – 3.0 PSF. This includes the solar panels, racking system, microinverters, and wiring.
What’s a typical payback?
While the payback will vary depending on the site conditions and size, a typical payback is in the 8-12 year range. With that said, we also offer financing options requiring no upfront investment resulting in an immediate payback and monthly savings.
Are there any rebates?
For Wisconsin residents, there are currently two rebate offerings. Focus on Energy offers rebates up to $500 and the Federal Government is offering a Solar Tax Credit of 26%.
How long do solar panels last?
Most equipment comes with a 25 year manufacturer warranty, but the systems are expected to work for 30+ years.
Aren’t solar panels ugly?
Sure, some can be, but not ours. We take pride in designing systems and selecting components that will look nice and blend in beautifully with your home. We recommend flush mount systems, symmetrical where possible, and black solar panels. Check out our installation gallery to see our solar panel installations to decide for yourself.
