Colorado Solar Panels Q & A
If you have questions regarding Colorado solar, we have answers.
Do I Need To Own My Home?
Owning the home is very important to the process of installing a solar array. Interested parties that don't own the home need the owner to agree to the installation.
What Does Credit Have To Do With Qualifying for Solar?
For many, solar is not something they can pay for in one lump sum. Colorado solar companies are aware of this. As a result, they create relationships with financing companies they trust.
If the homeowner's credit score is in the 700's or higher, they should qualify for any solar loan. However, credit scores in the high 600s still have some loan options.
Why Is Owing Taxes Important for Solar?
Because of the federal solar tax credit, homeowners can have up to 26 percent of their system covered. This tax credit is equivalent to thousands of dollars. To qualify for this tax credit, the person has to owe taxes.
Do I Have Enough Usage To Qualify for a Solar System?
For both the homeowner and the Colorado solar company to benefit, the home needs to use a certain amount of electricity. At Go Solar Group, the minimum residential usage requirement is 6,000 kWh a year, which equals an average of 500 kWh a month.
How Can I Maximize My Solar Savings?
While solar panels save money on electric bills, the optimization of these savings is possible through solar plus technologies and add-ons.
Why Is Battery Backup Important in Colorado?
Utility companies in Colorado like Colorado Springs Utilities and Xcel Energy offer net metering policies, giving you pennies on the dollar for the excess solar energy you export back onto the grid. To keep and produce this excess power within your home at the standard market rate, installing battery backup for your home can increase your solar savings.
They allow solar customers to stay connected to the grid at an affordable price. However, during an outage, grid-tied solar arrays need to turn off. Unless the home has some form of battery backup, solar power will do homeowners little good during a blackout or short power outage.
