Blog Banners (18)

The Green Day Power team takes calls from homeowners interested in solar, answers their questions, and helps them get the best of what they want. As you might imagine, questions range from the informational “What is solar power?” to the more complex “how efficient are the solar panels?”. The following are some of the most popular questions the team fields from those looking to go solar, save money on their energy bill, and save the planet.

“How do I get free solar?”

Unfortunately, there are many misleading ads out there suggesting that solar can be free. It is not free! There are financing options that make it so there is no money out of pocket, but you will pay back that loan with a monthly payment.  The key is that most of the time, those payments and the total cost is less than what you would be paying to the utility company over the long term.  However, solar is not free. Ironically, Green Day Power is giving you an outstanding opportunity to win a free solar system. You can win a complete solar panel system on your home – no strings attached it is truly completely free. Giveaway closes at noon on the 30th of September 2020! Random drawing will take place on October 1st, 2020, and one winner chosen from all valid entries. There are, however, many federal and state tax incentives that make solar more affordable. Homeowners who purchase a solar system in 2020 can benefit from the Solar Investment Tax Credit, or ITC, which allows buyers to deduct 26% of the cost of their solar energy system from their federal taxes. Green Day Power also offers a $500 referral for any valid entry that refers to a friend who installs any of our products – Roofing, solar, whole house backup Generac generator, or HVAC. Finally, remember that solar is a long-term investment. This top benefit of solar panels is straightforward – when you install solar power for your home, you generate your own electricity, become less reliant on your electric utility, and reduce your monthly electric bill. A solar panel system typically has a 35 to 50-year lifespan, which means that you can cut your electricity costs for decades to come by going solar.

“Why does solar cost so much?”

For many homeowners, installing solar panels can be as lucrative as investing in a business. While they are usually installed to reduce power bills along with other benefits, you need reliable information to decide if it is worth installing solar panels:

The recommended first step is contacting a qualified Solar PV installer/provider to get a professional assessment of your property so that you get accurate data on solar panel installation cost and how much you can expect to save. One of the reasons it seems expensive is because they are manufactured using large amounts of high-purity silicon and require trained and qualified installers to install it. The most efficient solar panels tend to be the most expensive since they are the most difficult to manufacture. Also, the number of solar panels needed for larger households is directly proportional to the cost of the project. It means, the more the number of solar panels to be installed for a given project, the more will be the installation and other costs and vice-versa.

In addition, every piece of a Green Day Power solar system is meticulously designed and tested for long-term reliability. Because they hire their own installers and monitor every step of the installation process, Green Day Power is confidently the only company that has a Solar Forever Warranty.

“Can I get a battery for my solar system?”

With the recent power outages in California, many people are looking for a power backup or storage solution. Green Day Power uses LG batteries which work with the Green Day Power solar system to harness and store energy from the sun. With this solution, homeowners are able to use the solar that is saved in the battery in a way that fits their needs depending on how the system is set up.  If you want true energy freedom from the utility company then adding a solar battery is the right path for you.
