The following are some of the most popular questions the team fields from those looking to go solar, enjoy uninterrupted power supply and save money on their energy bill while helping making the environment more eco-friendly by reducing carbon emissions.
Q 1: “Is Solar really a free source of energy?”

The fact is, we do not have to pay bills to the sun for supplying us with energy on a daily, monthly or annual basis. To purchase and mount solar systems your homes, there will be payment of the materials and workmanship. However, these are all properly tailored by most trusted solar companies to suite every homeowner’s budget and needs. In most cases, you are allowed to pay for the materials purchased over a period of time. After the payment for the materials is concluded, you enjoy free electricity as your home is powered directly from the sun.
Q 2: “Why is solar so expensive?”
This has to be the most stressed question. And the reality is, solar is a high value investment like purchasing a car or a home. Even in more developed countries, you would find that the outright cost of a solar home system is quite inaccessible to many. The differentiating factor is the easy availability of credit overseas which allows consumers to key into the product. Fortunately, a relatively recent shift means that most, if not all reputable solar companies ensure to tailor a comfortable payment plan peculiar to each client.
In addition, solar panels are meticulously designed and tested for long-term reliability. The typical solar panel is set with a warranty for at least 25 years.
An investment with such an extensive life span that requires only a short term installment payment is definitely an awesome one.
