Solar Panel & Upgraded Panel Installation
There is no doubt you have noticed the trend to install solar panels over the past few years –signs in neighbor’s yards, door-to-door salesmen canvassing the neighborhood, and the shiny panels popping up on rooftops. And why not?
Panel Box Upgrades
When upgrading to a new solar system it is sometimes required to replace your panel box to ensure that it is able to withstand any intensified amplitude from your new panel system. Our team will help consult you as to whether a new panel box is needed when upgrading your solar panels.
Solar Panel Repair
Solar panels generally require very little maintenance since these systems do not have any moving parts. However, it is essential that your panel is regularly inspected for any dirt or debris that may collect on your panels and affect their functionality. We offer our clients inspections and any repairs that your panel may require.
If you choose to install solar panels, this overview of the process will give you an idea of what to expect:
We will begin the solar power installation process by visiting your home to assess the physical space. We will assess the condition of your roof–there is no point in adding solar panels to a roof that will need to be replaced in the near future. We will also check whether your roof is in a suitable direction for capturing the sun; ideally, facing south. If not, you may choose to install a ground system, if that is allowed by your neighborhood or homeowners’ association.
While solar installation in San Diego does require a significant initial investment, the cost-savings over time make it an attractive option for homeowners planning to stay in their home for years to come. Solar panels have the potential to greatly reduce your electric bill, cutting it down by as much as 10-50%. With San Diego electric rates, that is a lot of money!
In addition to monthly savings on your electric bill, there are a variety of federal and local tax incentives that make now a great time to invest in a residential solar system. The federal government is offering a 30% tax credit on small solar energy systems through 2019; that will downgrade to a 26% tax credit in 2020, to 22% in 2021, and will expire on December 31, 2021. Coupled with any local tax credits, this incentive makes a solar installation in San Diego even more attractive. There are a few incentives for San Diego solar power installations, including the Single-Family Affordable Solar Homes Program for low-income families and a property tax exemption on solar installations for all homes.
With the tax credits and lowered utility bills, you are sure to find a solar power system that fits your budget.
We will design a solar power system that works best with the roof you have. We will take into account any shade trees, both yours or from nearby homes, that might affect the amount of light reaching your panels.
Before beginning any work on your roof, our team will confirm that the roof has been repaired, if necessary, and is in good condition to accept the solar panels.
We will take care to install your roof-top panels with respect for your existing roof. We will ensure that water will continue to drain properly, preventing costly damage. We will also take precautions to prevent damage from high winds. Your solar panels are mounted to racks that attach to roof mounts, and the mounts must be drilled into your roof’s rafters. This sturdy installation prevents strong winds from blowing off the panels, but does require that we drill holes through your roof. But, never fear–we take every precaution to prevent damage to your roof. The bolts we use will be surrounded by flashing and properly sealed after the installation. These steps will prevent water from leaking in through the installation.
Once your solar panels are properly installed, we will work with you to formulate a maintenance plan for your roof and the solar energy system. As with any home improvement project, regular maintenance is critical for preventing future problems.
Once your solar energy system has been completed, you can sit back and watch the savings roll in! Your monthly electric bill will immediately reflect the investment you have made, and will continue to do so for years to come.
