Solar Panel FAQs for New England Homeowners

Roxaco Solar provides seamless solar power installations. Based in Milford, MA, we serve many homeowners throughout Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire. We provide all the information, tools, and resources customers need to stay educated about solar power and how it can change their lives for the better. Below is a list of common questions our customers have regarding solar power installation, maintenance, and benefits. Our representatives are available to answer all your questions and concerns regarding solar energy.

This information is primarily relevant to warranties and service coverage or agreements. If you’re moving, you are allowed to take the solar panels you own with you. However, we recommend leaving your solar panels to increase your property value and get the most money from your sale. Warranties that transfer to new owners are more beneficial than those that end after a house is sold. You can transfer service coverage to the house buyer if you have a PPA.

Unfortunately, some roofs aren’t built to sustain and support a solar power system. The best roofs for solar panel installation are asphalt and composite. Luckily, most homes in the U.S. have asphalt shingles. If your roof is old or worn, we may recommend getting it replaced before your installation. If you qualify for a Solar Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), you can get your roof replaced for no cost.

Your system’s size will depend on the amount of electricity you use, your climate, and the typical weather conditions your area endures. During our surveying, we will assess your home’s layout and environment and make recommendations on sizing based on what we find. We’ll customize a system that fits your home perfectly.

There is a wide range of state and federal incentives available to homeowners wanting to go solar. Incentives may vary depending on where you live and how you finance your solar power transition. Your incentives may include reroofing and getting your electrical panels upgraded at no additional cost or fees.

Solar power is produced by the sun. It is a renewable resource that is sustainable. Unlike traditional power sources, it does not pollute or contaminate the earth or release harmful emissions. You’ll never have to worry about your power source harming the plants and animals surrounding your home. Its sustainability and naturality make it a suitable choice for environmentally conscious homeowners.

Cost-cutting varies depending on your climate, retail prices, and the amount of energy you consume. Many homeowners could save up to $125 per month depending on the factors previously mentioned. We recommend using an online solar calculator to get an accurate estimate of your energy bill after switching to solar.

Solar panels capture the sun’s rays and convert them to DC current electricity. If your home uses AC electricity and you want to switch to solar, you must have an inverter installed. An inverter converts DC electricity to AC, which is then fed into the grid or stored in your solar battery if you have one.
