What Makes This Utah Solar Company Stand Out

Go Solar Group is a family-owned, full-service solar company founded in Utah after a service mission in Africa. We believe solar power is a power-full equalizer. We have wielded and marveled over its power and influence. It can provide economic empowerment to people of all creeds via improved global health, educational opportunity, solar savings, and the ownership of energy production it gives individuals.

 

After experiencing the benefits of installing solar products for orphanages in off-grid communities, Go Solar Group founders decided to pursue affordable solar in America so they can provide it in Africa. Since then, the business goal for Go Solar Group has been simple; bring affordable, quality solar products to all Go Solar Group customers.

 

Specialists at Go Solar Group set the customer appointment, design the solar array, submit the financing, complete and submit permitting, and assist with installing the solar array.

 

Common Utah Solar Panel Company Q & A

If you have questions regarding Utah solar, we have answers.

Do I Need to Own My Home?

Owning your home is very important to the process of installing a solar array. If you don’t own your home, the owner needs to allow the installation.

What Does Credit Have to do With Qualifying for Solar?

For many, the price of solar is not something they can pay for in one lump sum. Solar companies are aware of this. As a result, they have created relationships with financing companies they trust. If you have a credit score that is in the 700's or higher, you should qualify for a solar loan easily. Credit scores of 650 or above are usually baseline.

Why is Owing Taxes Important for Solar?

Because of the federal solar tax credit, you can get a percentage of your system covered. This percentage is equivalent to thousands of dollars. People who don’t owe taxes can’t qualify for this incentive. Not qualifying for this incentive makes solar less financially appealing. 

Do I Have Enough Usage to Qualify For a Solar System?

For both you and the solar company to benefit, you need to use a certain amount of electricity in a year. Solar companies would cease to exist if they couldn’t afford to pay their expenditures. Go Solar Group’s minimum usage for a solar array is 6,000 kWh over a year or an average of 500 kWh per month.

How Can I Maximize My Solar Savings?

Installing solar on your Utah home saves money. However, you can optimize your solar savings by completing high-energy activities when the sun is shining. Some of these activities include running the dishwasher and laundry machines. If you have a delay timer on your appliances, you can set them to turn on in the middle of the day. Appliances that don't have a delay timer save the most energy when they are turned on during a lunch break. Water fountains and pool/hot tub pumps also require quite a bit of energy. If you want to lower your water pump energy consumption, consider investing in a couple of items. A pool timer, a correctly sized pump, and an energy-efficient motor will save you hundreds in electricity bills. You need to circulate your water. However, when and how you do it can change how much it costs.

 

Is Battery Backup Worth it in Utah?

Regardless of the power source when the grid goes down, so will the power in your home. It is when these outages occur that a battery backup option would come in handy. Individuals who want to take control away from their utility would be wise to consider a home battery or two, so they can store all their excess solar power and use it to power their Utah home whenever the sun is down.

How to Choose a Utah Solar Company

When choosing a Utah solar company for your home, there are a couple of factors to consider. Finding the best solar company requires looking at the company's credentials, customer reviews, and the quality of its products.
