As a homeowner, one of the best investments you can make is in solar energy. With energy costs at an all time high and continuing to rise, solar panel systems can save you money from day one. Homes with solar also sell for more given their cost savings & environmental benefits. Solar just makes sense.


The option to change from conventional power to solar energy begins with a couple of points – a duplicate of the homeowner’s electric costs and an evaluation from an associate of a solar company.

The electrical costs will act as a requirement of the usual consumption that the property owner consumes on a monthly basis. In addition, this will function as a determining element to compare solar energy consumption versus basic power use.

Throughout the consultation, our professional will get more information concerning the residential property, your house owner’s objectives, lifestyle, along with future plan for the house. From there, our specialist will establish a proposal and will go over discuss the benefits and advantages involved should they proceed in buying solar power. We will likewise talk about the options and advantages of acquiring or leasing choices.

Once the customer has chosen to switch to solar, the next step is to help the client in obtaining authorization for funding (if required). Contracts and extra paperworks will likewise be prepared.

Application for the Building Permit will be pepared by our engineers after performing an initial home evaluation. As soon as the Building Permit is released, installation of the solar power system will commence. A timeline of 6-8 weeks is forecasted to cover the installment of the solar energy system. A Permission to Operate is needed before the solar power system activation.

Preferably, the charge of solar-power systems will likely be lesser or proportionate to what our clients are spending in the present day for the same expense of electrical power consumed through your utility firm. If individuals choose to transform to solar power, expect to receive two monthly invoices. Even so, the total of the 2 bills is anticipated to be most likely identical to, or most likely be lower than our client’s prevailing power monthly bill.

Switching to a solar power system protects you and your household from future electricity rate increases as it presents a predictable usage monthly. Our clients can substitute their energy charges for their solar expenditures whilst using less finances at the same time. Regardless of whether individuals acquire a loan for your solar energy system or you settle in straight cash, the long-term rewards of switching to solar are downright worth the investment.

Your payment for the power will just be the standard fees for the electric meter hooked to your residence. This is simply just a part of the cost of what you are spending on the electrical provider before. Remember that even if you convert solar energy, you will still have to be affixed to the power company since your place needs to have the meter to enable solar power to work.

Each time the sun rays radiates toward a solar panel, photons coming from the sun rays are absorbed via the cells inside of the panel, which in turn generates a magnetic field spanning the layers and stimulates electricity to distribute. The solar cells generate DC (Direct Current) power but many people utilize AC (Alternating Electricity) power which leads us to the question – just how does solar power function?

There is a contraption located in the solar energy system known as an inverter that changes the DC electrical energy to AC power so you may utilize it in the home. Old solar-powered systems utilize a lone traditional inverter in order to change the current. Sunpower by NYSSF works with the newest technology via mini inverters on the back of every panel that offers a safer, extraordinarily productive, more valuable solar system. Microinverters are additionally recommended for homeowners living in the northeast where residents have to take into consideration environmental factors including forest shadow, snow, and foliage falling on the panels.

The power created by the solar system solves the necessities of the household first. If there is leftover electric power being produced, it circles back to the electrical grid by means of spinning the utility electrical meter backward, giving 100% credit report for each and every Kilowatt hour produced from the roofing system.

After dark, while the panels are not generating electrical energy, the home will get electrical power coming from the panel where the electric energy that your solar system produced throughout the whole day is stored. From Summer thru Fall, the solar power system will commonly produce additional energy than made use of. This electricity continues to accumulate or roll over day after day, week after week increasing scores on the electricity bill. These ratings can be used during the winter months, when the generation of power by the solar energy system is slowed down as a result of briefer days, decreased angle of the direct sunlight, and also snow and leaves on the solar energy panels. The progression explained previously is described as “Net Metering” and this is just how solar power performs in NYS-powered residences.

The solar power mounting gets under way by having a Technical House Examination (THA). Our solar energy technician will examine your residential unit, get images as well as acquire natural light evaluations of the roof structure through our drone. Our professionals may likewise go over your loft area as well as the power circuit box. After all of the required data is acquired, it will be forwarded to our engineers for the production of the solar energy system. The developers will definitely consider the electric power code and additionally the building ordinance of the state in which your home is located.

The crucial installation method starts out by styling the rails on the roofing covering. The rails are attached to the roof covering and the panels are attached to the rails. The rails are connected directly to your property’s rafters making use of stainless-steel lag bolts. The steel as well as aluminum are manufactured from top-grade materials which are warrantied for 25 years. These cover labor and all components utilized by Sunpower by NYSSF.
