FAQs

Here are our most frequently asked questions. If you don't see what you're looking for, give us a call!

What is net metering?

The term “net metering” refers to what happens when you are making more electricity than you use. When this excess energy pours over into the grid, it’s counted up, and after a certain amount of time, your power bill will quite literally be paying you. Before they pay you, though, you can use the power you put into the grid as excess at the wholesale price you put it in for.

Net metering is offered in the state of Virginia, so it’s best to take advantage of it while it’s there. Keep in mind that enrollment is open to a first-come, first-serve basis, so act quickly!

When will I start seeing my return on investment?

Depending on the size of your project and the initial investment, you could start seeing an ROI immediately. A return on investment in solar power is seen when the initial startup costs are paid for in energy savings created by the solar power generated by the system. This payback period depends on how much your initial costs were and how much energy your system can create. If you take advantage of the available credits, your actual investment can be made back in as little as four to six years in some cases and potentially less time if you install your own system.

Additionally, those concerned about selling their home prior to their solar system being paid off should be aware that solar panels actually increase a home’s value. According to the HUD, for every $1,000 a household saves on energy, the home’s value increases by $20,000.

Do I need a tracking system to follow the sun's pattern?

Solar panels are properly positioned to maximize the sun’s energy when they are first installed. Therefore, they don’t require an additional tracking system to follow the sun’s pattern.

Some systems can have additional components added that allow the panels to change position throughout the day as the sun moves. However, these rarely improve energy efficiency enough to justify the added expense.

Today, a more cost-effective solution is to add one or two additional solar panels instead, as an alternative to a tracking system. This will allow for increased energy production and benefit from financial rebates as well.

Can I still use my solar energy during a power outage?

Unless a home’s solar energy system is fully independent of the grid, a solar-powered home will still lose power in an outage. When a home’s solar production is tied to the grid, it is impacted by everything that happens to the grid. This includes power outages.

When the power goes out, the grid shuts down as a safety precaution to protect the workers who are fixing the lines from being harmed by any electrical pushback.

For households or buildings requiring 100% uptime, backup batteries are an option on a grid-tied system. By installing backup batteries, you can be certain that you will still have power, even during an outage.

Can I claim solar panels on my taxes?

Yes! When you install a solar system, 26% of your total project costs, including equipment, permitting and installation, can be claimed as a credit on your federal tax return. If you spend $10,000 on your system, you owe $2,600 less in taxes the following year.

You claim the credit in the year the installation is completed. Keep all your receipts. The more you spend on your solar conversion, the larger your tax credit.

I recently contacted this company for an estimate after having a few others come out. I have to admit I have been educating myself with each estimate. However, when the gentleman arrived he was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and most importantly understanding of my needs. They never tried to up sell me or disregard my concerns. They understood exactly what i was i looking for as well as understood my budget. This was not the first company i called, but it was indeed the last company i called. Calling Expert Solar was the best decision i could've made! I am extremely pleased with their presentation, accountability, knowledge and overall services provided. Thank You Solar Pros! If you are looking for a solar system , then look no further. These guys will treat you right the first time and every time.

When your hear ”solar energy” in today’s industry, you often hear of loads of data and scattered opinions across any given source. It’s hard to really know much about which service and who would be a trustworthy fit even if you’re considering it for your home. I contacted expert solar with the hopes of gaining knowledge about the technology and if it could possibly benefit my family and I. Not only was I educated thoroughly, the attention to detail the representative was able to provide was top notch. What made me switch was how easy it was to compare the savings to the outrageously high power bills that aren’t decreasing anytime soon. Solar is the future and I couldn’t have had a better experience with Expert Solar! ☀️👌🏻

This is a top notch company with state of the art technology and the absolute best value around. You can spend weeks or even months researching and getting estimates like I did or just take my word that Expert Solar is your one stop shop. They listened to my wants and needs then tailored a solution that fit those needs as well as budget. Couldn't be more pleased with my experience dealing with this company from the initial phone call to final handshake.

We had an excellent experience with the team at Expert Solar.From the beginning they were prompt and attentive in listening to us and building an array that met our needs. Solar can be a confusing and overwhelming, but they took the time to explain everything and ensure we were comfortable with the information presented to us.They handled all of the permitting and facilitated the work with our utility company. Their knowledge and experience was evident as the entire process went off smoothly and without a hitch.The entire team was professional and courteous. Should we have any future solar needs, they will be the first call we make.

Saw their number on a car driving past me on my way to work and decided to give them a call. I definitely couldn’t have been more impressed with the company’s representative who came out and showed us the ins and outs of switching to solar. I’m happy about saving money every month on my energy bills, and my wife is happy about us using clean energy (love my little tree hugger). Long story short, we love our new solar system! Thanks Expert Solar!

I had to wait until everything was said and done before I felt comfortable leaving a review. I did not know a thing about solar energy before my consultation with Expert Solar, but they were so informative and knowledgeable, I felt comfortable switching to the new solar system they designed for our home! Now that we are seeing everything working, and actually saving more money than they projected, my husband and I couldn’t be more happy with the decision we made!

Very Happy with my. Solar system. Very smooth process . from the meeting the energy consultant .to the installation. They showed me how I can take control of my electric bill and avoid the rising cost. Now I can run lights. That I worried about having on before. Now I feel more secure at night at my age I can leave the lights on with no worries. Best price. In the industry.

I have been interested in going solar for some time now. Not one company I spoke with had the answers to my questions until I consulted with Expert Solar. They made my transition into solar seamless and worry free. I would recommend this group of professionals to anyone looking to "go green".

So yesterday, we had our meter changed out by Dominion Power. Installed and set at 000000. Today we received out PTO ( Permission To Operate) letter and flipped the switch to start using solar power. Meter was at 000066 when we flipped the switch on a 90 degree day running air conditioning. Meter dropped to 65, 64, 63 and has leveled out at 64. Waiting to see our first low electric bill. Will keep everyone posted! $$$!!!!
