The Solar Programs we offer through our financing partners are easily transferred to a new homeowner. When your home has solar panels, it is considered an “Energy Efficient Home” helping it sell faster and for a premium!
Solar is not a “one-size-fits-all” approach. Each house is a unique and different project. The solar cost depends on several factors such as the amount of electricity your home uses, future plans, etc. To find out how much solar installation will cost for your home use our free savings calculator here.
We provide best-in-class system monitoring backed by a 25-year production guarantee and rest assured being a local company, we’ve got your back.
The average homeowner that qualifies will save over $900 their first year by making the switch to solar.
Lessar Energy serves to be the energy concierge for homeowners. We provide custom and detailed solutions to help maximize home energy efficiency as well as offset utility costs through renewable energy and other smart home technologies.
Installing solar used to be a very expensive and complicated process. The cost of solar panels and installation has dropped by over 80% over the last 15 years making it a much more cost-effective solution. Lessar Energy makes solar panel installation very cost affordable with cash and financing options that can save you thousands of dollars. Please fill out our solar calculator to find out if your house qualifies and how much you can save by making the switch.
You can choose to install the solar panel system yourself however your system will not be warrantied. You are responsible for obtaining all necessary permits from your HOA community, City, and Utility provider. Please contact us for more information on obtaining equipment.
Our team of engineers will take satellite imagery, yearly sun data, and your home’s annual kilowatt usage to determine if your house will qualify for solar panel installation.
There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the amount of electricity that a solar panel system can generate depends on a number of factors. However, in general, a solar panel system can provide a significant amount of electricity, and in some cases, it can even provide all of a household's electricity needs.
There are many factors to consider when discussing home solar installation and replacement roofs are one of them. When our sales specialists come to your property, they will take pictures of your roof and send the pictures to an expert for evaluation.
A program that utility companies offer that issue homeowners a credit for the electricity that solar panels generate. Every state's net-metering process is a little bit different. Find out exactly what the net-metering process in your area looks like here.
No, solar panels are very durable and can withstand heavy hail storms, wind, and snow. All equipment we use has a 25-year production guarantee, 25-year warranty, and 25-year workmanship warranty. You will pay $0 out of pocket while we maintain the entirety of the system for 25 years.
We offer the best financing options for homeowners with $0 dollars out of pocket. Our financing options are available to most Americans and make home ownership possible for more people.
Due to the fact that individual city and state regulations can affect utility pole attachment, the duration of an installation may vary anywhere from 75 days to 150 days.
Property taxes can be a significant added cost to owning property, and no one is looking to pay more taxes. However, most property owners will make improvements to their property over time that will increase the property's value and subsequently increase their property taxes.
Some solar panels can last longer than 40 years, but most panels can be expected to perform at optimum levels up to 25 years. Many top-tier solar panel manufacturers warranty their solar panels for 20-25 years. At Lessar energy we back all projects with a 25 year warranty.
In most cases, if your solar system generates more energy than your home needs at any given time, the excess energy will flow back to your utility. Your utility company may provide you with a credit for energy you send back to it. This credit is called net metering.
Typically, your meter will cycle through different screens. You should pay particular attention to the one that displays the total kilowatt-hours that your solar panels are generating. As long as your kilowatt-hours are increasing, your solar panels should be working fine.
As a renewable source of power, solar energy has an important role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and mitigating climate change, which is critical to protecting humans, wildlife, and ecosystems. Solar energy can also improve air quality and reduce water use from energy production.
Lessar Energy has installed solar panels at more than 200 houses in the Denver metro area and is rapidly expanding to serve Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Las Vegas and Henderson.
The only regular maintenance needed for your solar panels is cleaning and an annual inspection. Otherwise, as long as your panels are working properly, they won't need additional maintenance throughout the year.
Solar panel systems are incredibly durable and require little to no maintenance over their productive lifetime, which can span 25 years or more. In the event that something does go wrong, your solar PV system components have very long warranties that would cover replacement and repair costs. If you lease your solar panel system, repairs and maintenance are the energy company’s responsibility, not yours.
To figure out how many solar panels you’ll need to power your house, use a formula that takes three factors into account: annual energy usage, panel wattage and production ratios.
Solar panels do not produce power at night, but customers can still benefit from solar energy solutions after the sun sets.
There are two ways that you can potentially benefit from solar energy solutions at night – through net metering and through storage. Both options allow you to continue utilizing electricity from the sun during the night. Net metering, which requires a utility contract, works by balancing out your meter with any excess daytime energy generation and automatically applying that credit to your bill once a month. Battery storage is an unregulated solution for storing nighttime solar energy that is available 24/7, allowing homeowners to continue drawing off their purchases months into the future at will.
Solar PV systems installed in 2020 and 2021 are eligible for a 26% tax credit. In August 2022, Congress passed an extension of the ITC, raising it to 30% for the installation of which was between 2022-2032.
Solar panels are affected by local conditions, such as climate and weather. Different parts of the country have different amounts of sunlight per day; that number is called solar insolation. Additionally, the efficiency rating for any panel refers to the available sunlight at a given location on a sunny day, not how much power it will actually generate. The California Energy Commission explains that solar power systems in most areas of Southern California produce between 1,500 and 2,000 kilowatt hours per panel per year.
You get the most out of your solar panels by orienting them appropriately. In North America and other hemispheres, south-oriented roofs are best because they maximize exposure to sunlight. The sun rises in the east and sets in the west, so solar panels that face east or west will receive morning or afternoon sunlight, respectively.
Solar panel orientation is as important today as it was when choosing an orientation was a new concept in the 70s. For example, solar power production can be optimized by orienting panels to maximize exposure to the sun's light. Otherwise known as the position of sunrise and sunset, this orientation most significantly impacts energy production over time.
When it comes to solar panels unless the hail is so large it is a problem for everything in their path, it shouldn't be an issue with your panels. The solar panels are protected by steel tempered glass, and they are tested to ensure that they can withstand even the most extreme weather conditions.
Solar PV systems installed in 2020 and 2021 are eligible for a 26% tax credit. In August 2022, Congress passed an extension of the ITC, raising it to 30% for the installation of which was between 2022-2032. (Systems installed on or before December 31, 2019 were also eligible for a 30% tax credit.) It will decrease to 26% for systems installed in 2033 and to 22% for systems installed in 2034. The tax credit expires starting in 2035 unless Congress renews it.
There is no maximum amount that can be claimed.
