Solar Energy FAQ
There are a number of factors that need to be taken into account when deciding if solar power is a good choice for your home.

  • Do you own your home?
  • How high is your electricity bill?
  • Does your roof get a lot of shade?
  • What type of roof do you have?

These are just some of the factors that need to be taken into consideration when deciding if your home is a good candidate for a solar energy system.  Contact Us for a Free Consultation to discuss if solar is right for you.

The size of the system is based on your energy needs. To over-build or under-build can effect your return on investment. At Whittington Solar Energy we will find that sweet spot and design a solar energy system that is just-right for you.
The amount of power a solar energy system can produce can be significant.  On a roof that gets unobstructed sunlight, most customers typically generate 50-90% of the electricity they use from solar.
When your solar energy system is not generating enough electricity for your needs, your home will draw power from your utility company, like normal.
All excess electricity your solar energy system generates goes out to the power grid and your meter turns backwards, producing an energy “credit” that you can use at night or if it’s cloudy.
Solar energy system that is well-designed, installed and maintained will easily last more that 25 years.  Because there are no moving parts, the panels, if well maintained, can last 40 years or more. The best way to ensure and extend the life of a solar energy system is to make sure it is installed and maintained properly.
Installing a commercial solar energy system can be a great way to save money. It also tells your customers that you care about the environment and are a forward thinking company!  Both of these can benefit your bottom line.
