How much does solar energy cost?

Your solar installation will cost you $0 down! Code Green Solar will install your solar panels free of charge – you only pay for the electricity they generate, and for less than the current market rate.

How does solar power work?

Solar power systems collect energy from sunlight via specialized panels and arrays of photovoltaics, which convert sunlight into electric current. That current can be used to power household appliances and machinery.

How will solar panels save the environment?

Unlike traditional means of generating electricity, solar panels don’t rely on the combustion of non-renewable fossil fuels. As a result, they produce power without releasing any of the chemicals or greenhouse gases responsible for global warming, smog, acid rain, ozone depletion, or water resource pollution.

How will the panels look on my roof?

Your roof will be the best looking one on the block. The solar panels are low-profile and will give your house a sleek and modern look. Take pride in your contribution to the environment and your wallet.

Will solar panels affect the value of my home?

New research sponsored by the Department of Energy at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory shows that buyers are willing to pay more for homes with rooftop solar panels. Buyers were willing to pay a premium of $15,000 for a home with the average-size solar photovoltaic system (3.6 kilowatts, or 3,600 watts), compared with a similar home without one.

How much does it cost to repair or monitor my solar panels?

There is NO cost for maintenance and repairs of your solar system when you’ve taken advantage of our power purchase agreement.

What if I sell my home?

Typically the new homeowner continues to the solar system and take advantage of the sustainable energy as well. We already know how hard a home sale process can be – the power purchasing agreement transfer is a painless process.

How much will I save with solar?

Most homeowners see a 30% reduction in their energy bills! Couldn’t you use that extra money every month?

How long do solar panels last?

The life of a solar panel depends on where it’s installed and its level of use, but systems rated for 6 to 8 hours of sunlight conversion per day generally last upwards of 20 years. Manufacturers typically guarantee their systems with 10 to 20 year warranties on the panels, and a 5- to 10-year warranty on the other system components. Solar panels have been reported to last 30 to 40 years.

What happens to panels when they're cover by snow?

While some sun does make it through several inches of snow, little electricity is generated when the panels are covered. Fortunately, snow tends to melt off of solar panels quickly because arrays are positioned to catch the most sunlight. If you don’t feel like waiting, snow can also be brushed off rather easily with a broom or other cleaning device. Regardless, all our solar projections and ROI estimates take snow and cloudy days into account.

Do I need additional insurance for my panels?

Most standard homeowner insurance policies provide adequate insurance protection for solar panels, and meet the minimum requirements for an interconnection agreement with a utility company. A utility company may require you to provide proof of insurance, but you shouldn’t need a special policy just for your panels.
