Benefits of Solar Panels on Your Home

Adding residential solar panels to your property presents many environmental and financial advantages. From reducing your electric bill to minimizing your dependence on grid energy, here’s how you can potentially benefit from solar panels on your home:

Reduce Your Electric Bill

Installing solar for your home could potentially reduce your electric bill by allowing you to source your own energy directly from the sun. Because you’re essentially creating your own power, solar could lower the amount of power you purchase from utility companies and help you save thousands in electrical costs over the lifespan of your panel array.

Own Your Power

Residential solar allows you to source your energy right from the sun and convert it into usable power that you own, 24/7, 365. No longer will you need to rent all of your power from the grid, instead your solar system will work for you to provide access to clean energy, as well as help you avoid the full impact of unexpected rate increases from the utility companies.

Protection for Power Outages

Solar panels with a FranklinWH battery backup help you and your family avoid the negative impacts of unexpected grid complications that come with traditional energy because panels generate power from the sun and then you can store excess energy in your battery backup. When you only rent your power from the electrical company, you’re always at the mercy of a potential outage at any moment.

Modernize Your Curb Appeal

We use Premium-made solar panels with an all-black, modern aesthetic to mesh seamlessly with your roof. Built to endure everything from strong winds and rain to extreme temperatures and snowstorms, your panels will not only look great – they’ll perform through nearly any weather, in any climate.

How Solar Panels Work for Your Home

Solar panels work by harvesting energy from the sun and converting it into usable electricity for your home. Any unused electricity from your panels may also be able to flow back to your power meter to offset the cost of your next electric bill.

How Many Solar Panels Are Needed To Run A House?

The number of solar panels you need to power your home depends on a lot of factors. Things like current energy bill, size of your roof and access to sunlight all determine how many panels will help you save money. Simply put, solar is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Here are some of the key factors we use to assess the size of your system:

  • Your energy consumption
  • The size of your home
  • The direction of your home
  • The amount of direct sunlight hours that your roof receives

Home Backup Battery Storage

Solar battery storage from FranklinWH could protect against the effects of power outages by automatically kicking in to support crucial areas of your home during a grid failure.

This home backup battery storage saves your unused solar energy from a given month for the times when your panels aren’t producing, like nighttime or during an outage.

We include a FranklinWH solar battery system with our panels for no cost at install. Click below for more on the benefits of solar energy storage.

Determining The Cost Of Solar

What Goes Into The Cost Of A Solar Panel System?

Our premium solar panel systems are tailored to your home’s needs based on a variety of factors, including:

  • The location of your home
  • Your home’s current electricity consumption
  • The direction your home faces
  • How much access your roof has to direct sunlight
  • How much you’re hoping to offset monthly power bills with solar

After a free, in-home assessment, our experts will calculate the cost of your solar panel system based on the amount of solar electricity you want your solar panels to produce.

Tax Incentives

Through the Investment Tax Credit (ITC), also known as the federal solar tax credit, homeowners interested in adding solar can deduct 30% of the cost of installing a solar electricity system from their federal taxes.

Net Metering

Depending on your utility provider, solar customers may be able to send power back to the grid in exchange for credit on future electricity bills through a process called net metering.

Skyline Smart Energy Finance Packages

At Skyline Smart Energy, we offer solar financing packages through our partners designed to help homeowners reduce their carbon footprints and contribute to a healthier planet through a financial structure that meets their needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

The number of solar panels you need will depend on many different factors. These include your roof’s sun exposure, your current energy consumption, your goal electric bill and your home appliances. Ultimately, the exact amount of solar panels your home may need to see potential savings is unique to you. Our team will walk through each of these factors and determine the ideal number of panels needed to meet your energy goals.

Solar panel costs typically depend on the style and number of panels you select, current electricity costs in your area, and whether or not you qualify for any local rebates and incentives. Installation costs also factor in. However, depending on your panel efficiency, your region’s sunlight exposure, your home’s current energy usage, etc, you could potentially offset the cost of your system over the lifespan of your investment. Our system engineers will take all of these details into consideration to design a solar system that’s totally custom for your home.

Your potential savings depend on a variety of factors, including where you live and how much energy your home currently consumes. Local utility rates, solar incentives, net metering policies and more can also impact your savings potential.

To make your solar journey as seamless as possible, Skyline Smart Energy offers $0 down, 100% financing on solar systems for qualified homeowners. Learn more about going solar for less.

Homeowners installing solar panels before the end of 2023 can potentially deduct up to 30% of the cost of their solar installation from their federal taxes. Learn how to take advantage of this solar tax incentive before its expiration.

While some locations may receive more direct sunlight than others, our high-performance solar panels need only be clear of debris to produce electricity for your home, regardless of where you live.

While performance issues and early wear and tear of your panels are highly unlikely, you can protect your solar investment and keep your system producing for many years to come with our generous warranty options.

Net metering gives you a way to store energy and use it when you need it. During peak sunlight hours, the average solar panel system produces more power than you and your family can use. The extra energy is fed back into the grid, and the utility can use it for someone else. You get credit for the energy you feed back into the grid. When needed, you can use that credit to get power from the grid during the night, or on cloudy days when your home needs more energy than your panels are generating. Net metering improves the economics of solar power significantly, and it’s why Skyline Smart Energy works with power companies that provide it.

For those utility companies that don’t offer net metering, installing a battery is a way to utilize more of the energy your solar panels generate to your benefit.

How quickly you can pay off your solar panel system depends on several factors including federal and state tax incentives you may be eligible for, whether you choose to pay off extra each month, and the size of your particular solar project.

The short answer is, yes, solar panels are worth the cost. Solar panels could potentially lower your electric bills, you take steps towards owning your power (not renting it), you can offset future utility bills with net metering, and home solar panels could potentially raise the value of your property.
