How long do solar panels last?
Your solar panels should last 20-25 years, about as long as your roof.
How do solar panels work?
Solar panels are made up of photovoltaic (PV) cells. The cells, wired together within the panel, convert solar rays to electricity. Our expert installers will let you know how many panels you need for your roof array.
An inverter will take the direct current convert the energy to AC, which our electrical appliances require. The AC energy will flow through your electric meter and into your home.
Do I need to put on a new roof?
Since your solar array will last about 25 years, and our panels are integrated into the roof, it’s best to do them together. That way, you’ll have the most benefit for the longest amount of time.
What kind of maintenance do solar panels need?
Solar panels are very low maintenance. You should not have to replace any panels during their lifetime. You may need to replace some of the wiring, and possibly the inverter, over time.
How much money will I save?
