Solar for homes is more affordable and achievable than you may think. With solar tax credits, $0-down financing options, and rock-solid warranties, you can reduce your carbon footprint and increase your home’s value with residential solar power.
Your solar system has no moving parts so you can expect a long and hassle free life from your solar power system! Generous government solar rebates and incentives mean making the switch to solar is simple, fast, and affordable. With our expert installers, you can have your system up and running in just a few short weeks.
Solar Installation Process.
For a typical residential system, it takes about three days to install the PV panels and equipment. Then, the system must pass a final State electrical inspection which normally takes one business day to schedule and pass. It can take another 7-10 business days for the utility to install the separate solar meter. The local utility and EIG Solar will turn on the system once the utility company has installed the solar meter.
We mount solar panels on your roof and run wires through conduit to a solar meter. From there, we also run wires through conduit to your breaker panel. In the same vicinity as your utility meter, we mount an inverter, AC disconnect, and the solar meter. This equipment can be mounted either inside or outside and takes up about 15 square feet (3′ x 5′ area).
Bringing Added Value to Your Home.
A solar system reduces electric bills which can make it a valuable asset to any homeowner. According to a 2015 Berkeley Lab report, solar adds at least $15,000 to the value of a home. The report shows an average selling price increase of $3.75/watt ($18,750 for 4kW system). Click here to view the report summary.
“A friend referred me to EIG and I ended up getting a superior installation. The consultants there are helpful and knowledgeable. The financing was awesome. I recommend them to my friends and family.” Adam S. (Bakersfield Resident)
CLEAN AND RENEWABLE ENERGY!
An average residential solar system (about 7 kilowatts) reduces CO2 emissions equal to growing 4 acres of forest! Help prevent the generation of nearly 1,200 pounds of harmful coal ash every year.
THE COST OF NOT GOING SOLAR?
If your electric bill is $150/month, and you don’t go solar, you will pay the utility over $27,000 in the next 15 years! That’s if electric rates do not increase, and we expect them to climb significantly over time.
