FAQ

Why should I go solar?

When you install a solar energy system on your property, you save money on your electricity bills and protect yourself against rising electricity rates in the future. Going solar is a smart investment regardless of where you live.

Solar power has many environmental and health benefits. Solar power is a renewable resource, which means there’s so much of it freely available we never have to dig for coal or refine other toxic energy sources just to keep the lights on. Going solar reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which contribute to climate change, and also results in fewer air pollutants like sulfur dioxide and particulate matter, which can cause health problems.

Unless your solar energy system includes battery storage and you are fully off the grid, you will still receive a bill from your utility. However, you can dramatically reduce your bill, or even cut the amount you owe to almost, with a solar panel system that matches your energy use.

If your solar panel system is connected to the grid, it will shut off in the event of a blackout. This is to prevent emergency responders and electricity utility repair-people from being injured by your panels sending power back to the grid. However, there are certain inverters you can buy that provide backup power in a blackout when paired with a battery.

Solar electricity is identical to grid power, so you will never notice that the house is running on solar power. What you will see, of course, is a smaller electric bill!

When the grid power goes down, the grid-tied solar electric system goes down, too. This is to prevent any accidental back-feeding of solar electricity to the grid which might endanger line-workers. However, a new generation of battery backup technology is available, providing clean backup power in event of a power outage.

Solar panels sold today don’t ever stop generating. While some of the wirings may need upgrading in future years, the panels remain useful for over 40 years and generations to come with a minimal reduction in output in the years after the warranty.

Solar panels are easier to maintain than your property’s HVAC, appliances, and maybe even your cell phone. That’s because solar panels have zero moving parts to break.

The most you’ll have to do to maintain your solar panels is make sure they’re free of dust, pollen, leaves, and other debris. Whatever’s obstructing your panels will make for less efficient energy production.

Reputable solar providers now offer solar panels with manufacturer’s warranties that last between 20–30 years.

Since solar panels are so easy to maintain and have zero moving parts, they’ll keep generating energy for you home long enough to see a sizable return on your investment. Newer models have expected lifespans of 50+ years.

The panels will produce electricity, but it will be very limited — depending on how much light can get through the cloud layers. Homeowners with solar power will still be able to use traditional electricity from their local provider just as they did before the solar equipment was installed.

Grid based outdoor lights require expensive cabling which is a prohibitive cost in many locations.
Moreover, they are prone to blackouts on power outage, continue to draw electricity thus
producing greenhouse gases and high electricity bills. Solar outdoor lights are a wireless solution
which is both environmentally friendly and reliable.

On a sunny day, the battery requires 5 hours to charge to its fullest and provide dusk to dawn
operation. However on a cloudy day, the solar panel output is 30-40% of its peak . Our >95%
efficient charge controller combined with no wire losses result in the battery getting all the solar
panel output even on a cloudy day. Our proprietary dimming feature makes sure that the user
gets 6 to 8hours of runtime on any cloudy day which we refer to as the Self Autonomy feature.

Light intensity from a luminary when measured at a point on the ground is in terms of lux which
is lumen/area. This is the most important parameter as far as a customer is concerned. The goal
of technology is to achieve the best lux with the lowest wattage or power consumption. We use
150lumen/Watt LED which is the most efficient in the world. The use of our high quality lenses
results in 20% additional lux for the same LED lumen output.

In comparison with grid based LED lights, the savings associated with cabling costs and electricity
charges provide an instant saving with the solar outdoor solution. When compared to external
lead acid based solar outdoor lights with 2 day autonomy, the installed cost of our inbuilt lithium
ion based system is typically 10 to 20% lower.

The panels will produce electricity, but it will be very limited — depending on how much light can get through the cloud layers. Homeowners with solar power will still be able to use traditional electricity from their local provider just as they did before the solar equipment was installed.

The complete system is built with a plug and play design whereby any replacements of battery or
electronic boards can be done on site. The only tool required is a screwdriver.
