Frequently Asked Questions for Solar Power Beginners

Solar panels convert sunlight into electricity using a process called photovoltaics. When sunlight hits a solar panel, it creates an electric current that can be used to power your home or business.

The cost of solar panels has come down significantly in recent years, making them more affordable than ever before. The average cost of installing a solar panel system in the United States is now around $2.66 per watt. However, the cost can vary depending on the size of your system, the type of panels you choose, and the location of your home.

Solar panels are designed to last for 25 years or more. In fact, many solar panels still produce over 80% of their original power after 25 years.

The amount of money you can save with solar panels depends on a number of factors, including the size of your system, the amount of sunlight you receive, and your current electricity rates. However, most homeowners can expect to save at least 20% on their electricity bills by going solar.

There are many benefits to going solar, including:

  • Saving money on your electricity bills
  • Reducing your carbon footprint
  • Increasing your home’s value
  • Eliminating your dependence on the grid
  • Achieving energy independence

If you’re thinking about going solar, be sure to do your research and talk to a qualified solar installer to learn more about the benefits and costs of solar power.
