Solarize Connecticut FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions
“How do I know if my home is suitable for solar?” – Your home must have sufficient solar exposure, meaning a south-, east-, or west-facing roof with little to no shading from trees, chimneys, or other obstructions. RGS Energy will help determine if your home is suitable for solar after receiving your call or form submission above.
“Will the system produce electricity on cloudy days?” – Yes, though not as much as it will produce on clear, sunny days.
“Will my power stay on during a utility power outage?” – No. Because solar systems are connected to the grid, they pose a serious risk to utility workers working to restore power. For this reason, your solar system will shut down automatically during a utility power outage.
“What sort of maintenance is required?” – Solar PV systems require little to no maintenance. The occasional rain shower is enough to keep dust and pollen that can build up on your solar panels from hindering their performance. Over time, as trees on your property grow, you may need to trim branches to protect your panels from shade and falling limbs.
Snow typically melts and slides off the panels’ smooth surfaces much faster than it melts off the rest of your roof. However, after periods of extremely heavy snow and cold, you may have to clear snow from your panels. In this case, it is advisable to use a soft brush specially designed for solar panels or hire a company to clean them off for you. We do not advise getting up on your roof when it is covered in slippery snow.
“What size system should I install?” – The average residential solar system in Connecticut is approximately 7 kW and produces approximately 8,400 kWh per year.
However, your home and its electricity use are unique, and RGS Energy will determine the system size that will provide you with the greatest financial benefit.
“How will solar affect my home’s value?” – Solar PV systems typically add value to a home because they represent the value of electricity that would otherwise have to be purchased from the utility in the future. As utility rates rise over time, the value of the “pre-purchased” electricity in the solar system increases even more. Despite the added value a solar system contributes to a home, it is exempt from Connecticut property taxes when the property owner files the required paperwork with their local assessor.
“Do I have to pay for my solar system up front?” – No. There are different options for paying for your system.
- Pay little upfront with a solar loan. Where all rebates and tax incentives are typically applied to the principal of the loan to create a monthly loan payment that is usually lower than the amount you are saving on utility bills.
- Purchase a solar energy system for the greatest long-term savings, the ability to receive federal and state tax credits and get free electricity once your system’s electricity savings have paid for itself.
“Will I need batteries for my solar system?” – No. RGS Energy installs solar power systems that are tied to the existing electrical grid, which eliminates the need for batteries.
“Will I still receive utility bills after installing a solar system?” – Yes. You will receive a monthly bill from your utility company for the electricity you used that your solar system could not provide (at night, for instance). However, through what is known as “net metering,” power your system generates that you do not use is credited to your utility bill and you only pay the net amount of what you took from the grid and what you added to it. There will also be a flat monthly fee from your utility for being connected to the grid.
“What happens when I move?” – Studies by the US Department of Energy (US DOE) have shown that homes with solar sell at a premium compared to other homes. Solar financing payments and all warranties are easily transferable to the next homeowner.
