FAQ - Going solar opens the door to a lot of questions. 

Solar King in Michigan. Salesman John bolenbaugh. X oil supervisor turned into a solar advocate.

Q.) Why install solar?

 A.) Installing Solar is good for the environment, and it is a good long term investment. You have 2 choices, pay for your electricity every month for the rest of your life or install solar today and reduce or eliminate your electric bill for the next 40+ years. This is a long-term investment that will pay itself back in 6-10 years. In the future you would not have a solar bill or a electric bill after the system pays for itself. We divert your expensive electric bill that your forced to pay each month to a lower solar system bill. We increase your homes value 5 to 10% as you save money. LOTS OF MONEY!!!

Q.) Will Solar work in Michigan because batteries wont charge during a massive snow fall.

A.) With NET Metering a homeowner does not need to buy expensive batteries. Net Metering allows the electric companies to be your battery system year round. 

Net Energy Metering Definition: A practice in which utility companies credit you for the excess electricity generated by your solar panels. You can then draw upon these credits at night or during massive snow cover when your panels don’t produce enough electricity to match your daily use. Goal is for your system to fulfill 100% of your yearly use. Which would eliminate your electric bill except for a very small hook up charge. 

Q.) How does solar power work?

 A.) The Sun’s energy is converted to grid quality electricity that will power your entire home or business including all major appliances or machinery. 

Q.) Is Michigan’s weather good for solar power production?

 A.) Although Michigan does not get as much sun as Southern California, our ambient temperatures are perfect for maximum electric production. Panels are rated and tested at 77 degrees or STC(Standard Test Conditions).  Panels will produce more power when they are cooler than when they are overheated such as Southern California.  Hotter climates limit the amount of solar power that panels can produce. 

Q.) Can I generate electricity that the utility company will buy back?

 A.) Yes, excess power generated from your solar array will get pushed back to your Utility Company’s grid for full retail credit.

Q.) Are there any incentives available?

 A.) YES, there is a 30% full Federal Tax Credit available that you can take advantage when you file your taxes next year. solar king michigan

Q.) Where is the best location to install solar panels on my property?

 A.) You can install solar during any month of the year.  Spring and Fall are good times because the shingles are not too hot to walk on and will reduce any damage that could occur.  The solar production curve starts to accelerate in early Spring because of the cooler days and falls off in the winter months.  So, ideally, you should install in November or December and take advantage of your 30% Tax Credit in February or March of next year!
