SunPower Overview

SunPower Difference

The SunPower Equinox system features the most efficient solar panels on the market.

Because more power means more savings and fewer panels on your roof. - SunPower

Built-in Microinverters

SunPower solar panels for your home have built-in microinverters hidden behind each panel to optimize power conversion at the source. No bulky equipment on the house.

Web/App Monitoring

SunPower EnergyLink keeps us all in the loop with useful information including the amount of energy generated, savings, to maintain optimal system performance.

Texas Testimonial

Michael of Austin Texas, was pleased when he decided to go with SunPower for his Home. If your installer does not offer SunPower, have them give us a call. We may be able to work with them to get you a top quality system.

Lower or eliminate your electric bill

Solar is more affordable and accessible today because the cost of solar systems has dropped and a range of financing options can help you meet your goals. Whether you lease, take out a loan, or purchase a system, you may be able to start generating savings right away.

 

Solar can save you money by replacing electricity from the grid with solar electricity generated on your roof or ground. The cost of solar plus any remaining electric bill amount may be lower than what it was before solar.

Why?

For homeowners concerned with rising electricity prices, a solar home helps control electricity costs and may provide savings over time.

The Solar Solution

Most people do not know why their energy rates continue to rise. The answer is simple, the power companies have to transport the energy hundreds of miles from its generation point to its distribution point.

Why do energy rates continue to increase?

They build, maintain and expand an enormous infrastructure in order to support the ever-growing demand for energy and spend Billions each year in order to do so. These overhead costs are how they justify increasing prices by an average of 4% year after year.

 

We can fix this

We have a better way. Let's generate electricity from your Solar System and send that power straight to your Home. This gives you control and protection against rising energy rates by producing up to 100% of your annual energy needs from your Solar Systems. 

Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC)

The Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) allows the owners of a solar system to deduct 30% of the entire cost of purchasing and installing a solar energy system from their federal taxes. This ITC applies to equally to residential and commercial systems through 2019. Starting in 2020 the percentage steps down to 26 percent and then again to 22 percent in 2021. After 2021, the residential percentage will be reduced to zero while the commercial percentage will drop to a permanent 10 percent.

SREC Markets - Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SRECs)

In SREC state markets, the Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) requires electricity suppliers to secure a portion of their electricity from solar generators. The SREC program provides a means for Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SRECs) to be created for every megawatt-hour of solar electricity created.


The SREC is sold separately from the electricity and represents the "solar" aspect of the electricity that was produced. The value of an SREC is determined by the market subject to supply and demand constraints. SRECs can be sold to electricity suppliers needing to meet their solar RPS requirement. The market is typically capped by a fine or solar alternative compliance payment (SACP) paid by any electricity suppliers for every SREC they fall short of the requirement.

 

SREC FACTS

•    1 SREC = 1 Mwh of solar electricity
•    A 10 kW facility generates around 12 SRECs annually
•    SRECs are sold separately from the electricity
•    Value is determined by market supply and demand mechanics
•    Facilities must be certified by a state to sell SRECs

Solar adds value to your home

Home buyers are willing to pay a premium for a home with a purchased solar installation.

How do we determine savings

  1. How much sun hits your roof or land

  2. How much power you consume

  3. Electricity rates in your region

  4. The History of rate hikes in your region

  5. Applicable incentives ie. 30% Federal Tax Credit

  6. Your tax appetite 

  7. Supportive solar policies in your state

  8. The amount of SREC where applicable

  9. The total cost of the turnkey system
