how will a solar energy system affect my home’s value?

Your solar energy system has the potential to raise your home value by up to 15%! Solar panels are an added selling point you can add to your home description when and if you want to sell your home in the future.

A solar energy system can be sold with your house and easily transferred to the new owner. In some financing situations, payments may be transferred to the new owner as well. Read more about this in the Financing section below.

What happens during storms or grid outtages with a solar energy system?

How your solar energy system responds when it gets dark, storms, or when a grid outage occurs depends on whether you have Tesla Powerwall or similar backup battery installed alongside your system or if your home is still connected to the grid.

If you have Tesla Powerwall backup, your Tesla Powerwall will charge during the day, when the solar panels generate a surplus of energy that is then stored in the backup battery. When it storms or gets dark, Tesla Powerwall discharges this surplus energy, and your home continues to run like clockwork. If you have Tesla Powerwall, you have no need to be connected to the grid, so you’ll still have power for as long as your backup battery has charge in the event of severe storms or grid outages.

If you don’t have Tesla Powerwall backup with your solar energy system, your home will revert to energy from the grid when it gets dark, or during severe weather that prevents solar panels from experiencing direct sunlight. Because you will not have a backup, your home will still be connected to the grid and thus will be vulnerable to grid outages.

If your home has Tesla Powerwall without solar panels, the backup battery will store energy during times of the day when energy rates are at their lowest, giving you a surplus. During grid outages, Tesla Powerwall will discharge seamlessly — in a fraction of a second — without disturbing any of your appliances or other items in your home that need electricity. You’ll have backup power for as long as Tesla Powerwall remains charged.

When will I start seeing savings when i switch to solar?

You’ll start seeing savings as soon as your system is operational, but you’ll begin to notice a difference when you receive your first utility bill after installing your solar energy system. You may see savings of up to 100% on your energy bills once you switch to solar.

how much could i save on solar energy every month?

The amount of money you’ll save on energy every month depends largely on whether or not your home is still connected to the grid or if it utilizes a backup battery like Tesla Powerwall.

If your home utilizes Tesla Powerwall in conjunction with solar panels, you’ll see the greatest savings because your backup battery will store free, clean solar energy that is generated by your system during the day. If you don’t have Tesla Powerwall, your home will depend on the grid at night and potentially during storms or rain, so you’ll still be subject to energy company rates at those times.

Solar energy is a gamechanger in particular for businesses that spend huge sums on power for large spaces or spaces that demand constant or large amounts of power. Our clients have seen savings of up to 100% on energy bills, and that’s entirely possible for you, too, when you switch to solar with ProSolar Caribbean.
