How long do solar electric systems last?

A solar system that is designed, installed, and maintained well will operate for more than 20 years. The basic solar panel has no moving parts and can last well over 30 years.  The panels that Compass Solar Energy installs have a power guarantee of 25 or 30 years.  String inverters have a 10 year warranty or microinverters have a 25 year warranty.

How long does it take to get a residential solar electric system installed?

From the signing of the contract to the final inspection by your county or municipality it may take 4-8 weeks depending on the requirements of your local governing authority.

Increase Home Value 

A recent study by Lawrence Berkeley Labs clearly shows that your home’s value will increase much more than a rooftop system costs. “Selling into the Sun: Price Premium Analysis of a Multi-State Dataset of Solar Homes” found that a home’s value will increase based on the size of the rooftop solar system at the rate of $4/watt. So for a typical 5,000 watt system that costs $14,00 after the 30% Investment Tax Credit, a home’s value would go up by $20,000. This is a big deal for anyone considering solar as an investment.

How is a PV System Installed?

The installation of a PV System should only be attempted by trained and licensed professionals.  Solar panels are mounted and secured to your roof using stainless steel mounting hardware and racks.  All roof penetrations are sealed with a long lasting polyurethane sealant.  Because of the strict engineering requirements, these roof mounting systems can actually strengthen your existing roof because of the additional cross bracing provided by the racks.

Electrical conduit and wires are installed from the PV array to the inverter.  The inverter is typically installed next to your existing circuit breaker panel.  The inverter is then connected to your main circuit breaker panel with the proper size wire and circuit breaker to provide power to your electrical system.  For a basic Grid-Tied non-battery backup system, that’s pretty much the process.  Battery-backup systems have a few more pieces of electrical gear to mount and connect, the general process is the same.

Return on investment.

Installing solar in your home is one of the safest investments you can make. Green Keepers Energy  provides solar PV systems for less than what most people pay for utility-fed electricity. As electricity prices continue to rise, your PV system will continue to supply electricity at today’s rates and your savings will grow.
