I went around and asked 18 employees to give me a question that they answer every single day with solar customers. Together as a company we probably answer these questions clost to thousands of times a week, so I figured I’d bang out all the questions in individual helpful videos with straight-shooting answers.

Here they are:

Full list of questions

1. Does my solar power work if the power goes out?


2. How long does solar power take to install on my house?


3. Should I buy American made solar panels?


4. Do I need to replace my roof before I put solar power on my house?


5. Can I buy solar panels and put them up myself? (DIY Solar)


6. What is thin film solar power and should I use it on my house?


7. Why do you need my electricity usage to design a solar system for my house?


8. How does the ownership of a solar power system work on a house?

10. Where is pay-as-you-go solar, like a lease or a PPA, available?

12. What happens to my pay-as-you-go solar power agreement if I move?


13. Which solar panels are the best?
