So Many of our clients have many questions that we have put together a page to respond to their many questions.
Question: How much money will my Utility Provider pay me for my Solar?
Answer: This is a very good question, so you must pay close attention to this answer. There are to types of payments. The first type of payment/credit is called Net metering, which credit your solar generation at the same cost you pay for your electricity. Example if you pay 10 cents to 12 cents to your Utility Provider (Georgia Power or any EMC) then you will be credit 10 cents to 12 cents for your solar generation. This is very fair. The second type of payment/credit is called Avoided cost, which only credit you 4.5 cents for your solar generation. Example if you pay 12 cents to your Utility Provider (Georgia Power or any EMC) then you will only be credited 4.5 cents for your solar generation. Simply Not Fair ! ! ! How in the world can our GA Utility Commission approve something like this. So unfair !
Question: What then, is the best Solar application for Net-metering and/or Avoided cost?
Answer: The best solar application for a Utility Provider that supports Net-metering is a straight roof mounted or ground mounted solar array.
The best solar application for a Utility Provider that only supports Avoided cost will be a roof mounted or ground mounted solar array with a battery bank included. While the solar array is generating energy during the day it is also charging up the battery bank for the evening. So then what ever energy is left over (which is a very small amount) goes back to the grid at an avoided cost of 4.5 cent. This application is estimated around a 97% reduction of your electric bill, just as good as net-metering.
Question: How much money can I save using Solar PV Power?
Answer: The average Solar Installer can only save you around 50% off your average electric bill. But, there's much more work to be done to install Solar Power on your home or property correctly, than just putting up solar panels. We offer our Phase 1 service first to reduce your electric bill by 45%, then we offer our Solar PV installation, to reduce your remaining electric bill down by another 80%, leaving you with only 10% of your orginal bill to pay.

$165 electric bill - Our Phase 2 solar pv installation reduces your average bill down again to $32/month (80%)

Question: Will using Solar Power really work for me?
Answer: Yes, for example: For every $100.00 you invest for solar power, you will get back $35 min. and up to $60.00 max. within the 1st year. Then, the system will pay for itself within the remaining 3 - 6 years. That's worth while.
Question: How will the system end up paying for itself?
Answer: Through your Federal Energy Tax Credit; look for your IRS Form 5695. Also through your State Energy Tax Credit, if avaible, and/or through a Grant Program. Call us for more details and or information.
Question: What information is needed to obtain a good quote?
Answer: You will need your March & August electric bill and the total square footage of your property. (Example: If your property is 1600 sq. ft. then your average electric bill should be $150 - $250. If your property is 2400 sq. ft. then your average electric bill should be $230 - $350.
Question: Can I reduce my electric bill by 50% or more?
Answer: Yes, you can reduce your electric bill by 50% for little as $1,800 min. to $3,500 max. You can reduce your electric bill by 85% by installing a full solar array without batteries, or 97% with an added Powerwall Battery Bank. We offer a "Not To Exceed Cost" for our guaranteed services and installation.
All system comes with a 25 yr warranty.
Question: Are there still any incentives to offset this cost?
Answer: Yes, the IRS still offers a Federal 30% tax credit, for your purchase. This tax credit has been extended through 2022.
Question: How much does Solar Energy cost nowadays?
Answer: In 2010 the average 10kW Solar PV Array cost $55,000, completely installed. Presently the same 10kW costs $25,000 to install, minus $7,500 Fed Tax Credit. Giving you a Net Cost of $17,500. These tax credits have been extended through 2022. GA State Energy Tax Credits are not available at this time.
