Solar power is not a fuel; it’s a technology. Solar power is considered a clean energy and produces no pollution. Unlike natural resources, which diminish year after year, the sun provides a never-ending supply of energy. This energy is converted into electricity, which can power everything from your air conditioner to your toaster. By installing a solar system, you save money, help reduce your carbon footprint and harness the power of the sun.
Contact the team here at Veteran Solar to request a proposal and FREE on-site analysis. Providing us with your electrical usage for Kilowatt hours and the amount of your average electric bill helps us in prepare your bid.
We take an average of your total usage from the previous 12 months. Some months you’ll use more electricity than others, but building your system based on a 12-month average ensures that we don’t overbuild or under-build your system.
The easiest answer is that the cost will vary depending on the size of your solar system; the bigger the system, the greater the cost. System costs range from a few thousand dollars, up to tens of thousands of dollars. Each rooftop is different, so we’ll design and engineer a tailor-made system to fit your roof. The good news is that we provide easy and affordable solar loan financing if you don’t have upfront cash to pay for your system.
Yes. Part of our mission as a company is to save our customers money. This is accomplished by selling rooftop solar systems at an affordable price that will provide our customers a return on investment within a reasonable timeframe. Once the system is installed on your roof, you own it. By “locking” the price of your electricity, you’ve protected yourself from the constant rate hikes imposed by utility companies. If the system is financed, your monthly costs, in most cases, will be less than your current electric bill. We will run a comprehensive analysis for you based upon your current energy usage to find out if solar is right for you. If the numbers don’t work, we’ll be the first ones to tell you. This isn’t magic, its just math. Either the numbers make sense to switch to solar or they don’t.
Instead of receiving one large bill every month from your local utility provider, you will receive two smaller bills: one from our financial partner to cover the loan payment for your solar system; and one from your local utility provider for the power you pull from the grid during times when your panels are not producing electricity. Assuming your usage remains consistent, these two bills together should be less than your current power bill.
