Solar equipped house to eliminate electric bill

Prepare your energy future by reducing or eliminating your utility bill and increase your home value. Increase the value of your home.

Solar electric systems empower owners to reduce cost and dependence on utility companies. Solar electric installations installed on roof-top or the ground can offset electric charges and include battery backup.

Solar systems can produce electrical power for home or business. PV solar electric systems may include battery backup if desired, but most merely lower the utility bill.

The Department of Energy completed a study in April 2011 that concluded a home seller who invested in solar panels could expect to capture a premium of $18,600-$23,870 versus comparable homes without solar panels. Chart showing recent studies. Installations can be roof mounted or ground mounted. We handle the entire process for you, including electric usage analysis, selection of financing options, system design, installation and applications for rebates and incentive payments.

The key to smooth installation

is hiring an installation company experienced in permitting and accurate electrical code compliance. Be sure to hire a genuine electrical contractor to be confident your system is properly tied into your home wiring(not just a solar contractor). SunnyCal Solar holds contractors licenses for Solar(C46), Electrical (C-10 DEC), and General Contracting (B).

The first step in the process is a site assessment and review of historical electrical usage. This is accompanied by a Shade Analysis to determine the best placement of your solar array to avoid shading.

Fire Safety of solar systems has become a factor in solar systems installations. Systems installed after Jan 1, 2015 must have the same fire classification and the roof assembly (IBC 2012:1509.7.2). Solar modules can be provided to maintain the overall rating of your existing roof materials. The top rated modules and support structures are fully rated as Class A, and provide the highest fire resistance rating.

Concerned about theft? Theft can be a concern for remote installations. SunnyCal offers optional security screws to fasten solar panels to support rails, making it nearly impossible to remove the solar modules without special keyed tools.
