Questions From Customers

Will I have one power bill?

You will receive one bill from your utility company and you will receive one bill for your solar panels. Our goal is to get the new combined bill to be much less than your previous bill. One of our representatives can help show you exactly what you can expect for a new bill.

What if I move?

Will solar panels affect the value of my home?

Several studies have shown that installing solar panels immediately adds value to your home and can help it sell faster. Don’t take our word for it, read about is in this NEW YORK TIMES ARTICLE.

What happens if the power goes out?

If the power goes out in your area, systems tied to the grid go out as well. It’s not safe to send power into the grid when workers are attempting to fix a power outage problem. Adding a home battery can give you a limited amount of power to specific items within your home.

WHow does net metering work?

After solar panels are installed on your home you begin producing power. Any excess power your home doesn’t use will be sent back to your utility company. Your electric meter will run backwards. You will feed excess energy to the utility company during the day and then receive it back during the nighttime, at no cost.

What is the process for going solar?

  1. A Summit Solar representative will visit your home to assess the quality of your home and provide you with a detailed solar proposal specifically designed for your home.
  2. Your Summit Rep will then show you how the incentives work in your area, provide you with proper inventive documents, and give you access to Summits $0 down finance options.
  3. The Summit Operations Team will handle all permitting and engineering documents before scheduling your install.
  4. One of Summit's highly trained install teams will brief you on the work to be done and make sure all of your questions are answered the day of install. The install often only takes 1-2 days.

How does a solar ownership work?

Summit Solar gives its customers access to $0 down loan options that allow customers to finance their systems for up to 25 years with incredibly low-interest rates. This makes the decision to go solar much easier because customers don’t have to come out of pocket with anything and instead simply replace their old Utility bill with a lower bill that eventually ends.

What happens at the end of the loan term?

After the term of your loan is complete you officially own the system and will have no more monthly payments on the system for the remaining life of the panels. CONTACT US today so we can answer any additional questions you have and see if solar is a good fit for you!
