Harnessing the sun’s energy is becoming increasingly popular, and with good reason. Solar power offers a sustainable, environmentally friendly alternative to traditional energy sources while potentially reducing your electricity bills and enhancing your home’s value. However, before making the switch, it’s natural to have questions. Let’s explore some frequently asked questions about solar power to help you make an informed decision.

1. Does solar power work in New Hampshire?

Absolutely! While New Hampshire experiences seasonal variations in sunshine, the state boasts ample sunlight throughout the year, making it suitable for solar energy generation. New Hampshire ranks 41st nationally in solar energy adoption, with many residents embracing its benefits.

2. How much will a solar panel system cost?

Costs vary depending on your energy needs, roof size, and chosen equipment. However, federal and state incentives significantly reduce the upfront investment. In New Hampshire, you can enjoy a 26% federal tax credit and a state-specific net metering program to sell the excess energy produced back to the grid.

3. Can I finance a solar panel system?

Yes! Numerous financing options are available, including loans with attractive interest rates and zero-down payment options, like our No Cost Solar Program, which makes solar energy accessible to more people, allowing you to spread the cost over time and start enjoying the benefits immediately.

4. How much maintenance do solar panels require?

Solar panels require minimal maintenance. They are made to resist harsh weather conditions and typically only require occasional cleaning to remove dust and debris accumulation.

5. What happens to my solar energy at night or on cloudy days?

Solar panel systems are usually connected to the grid to draw power from the utility when needed. Additionally, you can invest in battery storage solutions to store excess energy generated for use at night or during cloudy periods.
