Frequently Asked Questions
Is solar worth it in Georgia? Yes, absolutely! In general, Georgia is a fantastic location for solar energy. The majority of households find solar energy to be a worthwhile investment because the state has cheaper solar equipment than most states and higher energy usage than average.
Homes with solar power systems installed are reportedly worth 4.1% more than homes without, according to estimates from Zillow. This means that in Georgia, installing panels typically results in a value increase of $12,204.
The cost of solar installation has fallen 70% in the past 10 years and continues to drop as technology, financing and installation methods improve. Many residential systems pay for themselves in five to seven years, and the panels continue to generate electricity for more than 20 years. Read more on our Solar for Homeowners Page. ROI on commercial systems can be even faster. Read more on our Solar for Businesses Page. The initial investment can be significant, but creative financing methods can help defray the initial financial outlay. Your solar professional can discuss the options and help you select the financing plan that works best for your budget.
For the majority of homeowners, as long as your solar panels are installed correctly, they shouldn't cause damage to the structure of your roof or the outside of your home. Your solar panels won't compromise the structural integrity of your roof if you engage with a qualified, licensed technician and if your roof is in good shape.
Begin by contacting a solar professional and asking for a consultation. A well-trained professional can assess the site’s suitability for solar, determine the right size of solar array to install and estimate the cost of the system. Most solar professionals can discuss a range of possible financing methods and help you decide which one makes the most sense for you. If your site is not suitable, you should look into the availability of community solar.
It will take two to six months to complete the entire solar installation process. Your solar system's size will play a role in determining the size of the crew that arrives to install your solar panels, but it will typically consist of an electrician and his solar panel installer. Residential solar system fittings can be finished in one to two days, but they may take an extra day if your roof needs any special care. The waiting period for permit approval, which could take close to two months to complete, is the element of the installation process that takes the longest.
Solar panels typically do not affect a roof's warranty. But, the solar installation has to be done properly. The following situations could result in the voiding of your roof's warranty: Your roof sustained damage during installation, such as fractured tiles or a compromised roofing membrane.
You need to exercise caution because some businesses might put in solar panels without taking into account the effects of these particular acts.
The fast-growing availability of community solar is making the cost and environmental benefits of solar available to everyone. If no community solar is available in your area, consider organizing with your neighbors and local officials to create a community solar site.
It is not necessary to install a new roof at the same time that you install a solar energy system as long as your roof is capable of supporting the weight of a solar energy system and has a sizable amount of useful life left in it.
Yes, absolutely. You can install solar panels on a flat roof. It's important to ensure that your flat roof is in good condition and there aren't any significant obstructions nearby, like trees, that could obscure the sun and reduce your energy output. In some cases, installing solar panels on a level roof can be better than doing so on a sloped one!
A flat roof is better for two reasons. First, it allows you to use a ballasted racking system which doesn’t require any roof penetration which eliminates the risk of leakage. Second, it gives you the flexibility to position your panels to optimize sun exposure.
A monocrystalline (mono) panel is the most effective type of solar panel for homes. These silicon crystal panels produce the highest efficiency of all other panels, ranging between 15% and 22%. With the help of newer, smaller, and half-cell panels, mono panels may now produce more power thanks to technological improvements in the photovoltaic market.
Most homeowners take full advantage of savings costs and energy by complimenting their residential solar array system with a battery energy storage system. A battery energy storage system not only allows you to save money and capture more solar energy, but it gives you a peace of mind knowing you’re prepared with a backup power resource in case of an emergency.
Simply divide your open roof space by 17.5 square feet to determine the number of panels that will fit on your roof (or however large your particular solar panels are). For instance, if your roof is 1,500 square feet in size and is completely free of obstructions, you could fit 85 solar panels there.
