Besides wondering “how do solar panels work,” we know people have other questions about solar energy. While it doesn’t cover every piece of information someone might need, our Norwalk solar experts have put together a list of some of the most frequently asked questions we get from clients that can help explain some of the possible solar energy pros and cons.

It’s no surprise that this is one of our most frequently asked questions. The cost of a solar energy solution will vary from client to client, especially depending on what type of system is being installed, and if it’s for an agriculture, commercial, or residential location. With so many variables, it’s impossible to settle on a fixed cost. However, when you contact our team, we provide a entirely free consultation and come to you with a customized solution and its cost once we’ve evaluated your location and eligibility.
The work of physically installing the panels will take approximately a week, so you don’t need to worry about having technicians at your house for weeks on end. The lengthier portion of installation involves securing the various permits and processing the financial incentives. Depending on the size of a project, the entire process can range from a few weeks to a few months. That being said, we do take this into consideration when presenting our custom solar solution, and can give you a better idea of a timeline once we know how much work we need to do.
Part of our promise to every client is giving them as close to a turnkey solar energy solution as possible, and this doesn’t end after the solar panels are installed and working. Not only will you receive reports on how your panels are functioning, but we also keep a close eye on their performance. In the unlikely event that part of your system isn’t running optimally, one of our expert solar panel technicians will be onsite to make the necessary repairs.
One of the benefits of solar panels is that you don’t need a state of the art, newly constructed house in order to have solar panels installed. The electricity generated will be routed through an inverter and your building’s electricity panel, which is how the power becomes useable. Something to be mindful of is the surface area and age of a roof, which can determine the number of panels you can install. During our free consultation, we make sure to take that into consideration, and won’t ever recommend a solution that isn’t safe for you or your family.
The simplest explanation here is also the most obvious: the more sun, the better the solar panels will work! Year round, as long as there is sun, the panels will produce energy. On cloudy days, the panels will still produce energy, but not as much as they would on a day with clear skies. During winter, too much snow accumulating on top of the panels can also impact performance. However, this is why we’ll install panels on a slant to encourage natural runoff, and the sun will work to melt snow over time as well.
This is definitely more on a case by case basis, but a number of studies have found that buildings with purchased (not leased) solar panels have increased long term value and appeal. This is especially true when you take into consideration that a typical solar panel lifespan is 20+ years.
Without an installed battery backup, solar panel systems will not work when the power goes out. — We do offer battery backups, which will keep the light on in the event of a power outage in your area. Make sure you ask about this when you call for your free consultation.
