28 Apr A Few Important Solar FAQs
Why should you go solar with us?
Here at Bison Roofing & Solar, we’re incredibly passionate about solar photovoltaic (PV) systems! We love talking about solar power and its amazing potential, especially here in Florida, but at the same time, we recognize and value all of our customers’ concerns and questions. We are here to provide you with the clear and reliable information needed to make solar investment a no-brainer. Why? Because we want you to love solar just as much as we do!
How much is this going to cost me?
The Biggest Home Improvement that Pays for Itself
This is probably our most asked question, and for good reason. At Bison Roofing & Solar, we tailor each and every solar proposal so that, if you choose to take advantage of our zero down financing, the monthly payment for your panels is equal to or less than the monthly savings you receive from generating your own electricity. In essence, the monthly payments are replacing your existing energy bill, rather than being added on top of it. We have also partnered with several solar panel companies in order to bring you as many options as possible to match your specific needs.
Furthermore, every homeowner is entitled to a 30% federal income tax credit (ITC), which can be applied to your system and thereby further reduce the net cost of going solar.
When can I expect to see these “savings”?
See the Power of Solar in Real Time
Depending on when your system is installed, solar savings can typically be seen in the first month! From the moment your panels are connected to your home’s mainframe they begin generating electricity, thereby reducing your need to tap into your utility’s grid system. But even before you get that first amazing bill, you can monitor your panels’ production right from your smartphone using 24/7 monitoring technology. Harnessing the power of the sun has never been so tangible!
I installed solar panels, but I still have an energy bill. What gives?
Energy Efficiency: It’s a Lifestyle
When it comes to breaking the cycle of energy dependency, the name of the game is home energy efficiency. A rooftop solar PV system is the largest piece of the home energy efficiency puzzle, but depending on your situation, it may not completely eliminate your monthly utility bill. Luckily, we have many additional solutions to help chip away at that remaining balance. From installing highly-efficient LED light bulbs to blown-in attic insulation, we will work with you to achieve maximum energy bill reduction! And because of their high efficiency standards, even these small improvements have very short returns on investment (ROIs).
My roof is very old, will installing the panels result in any damages or leaks?
