Being a solar provider, we realize that this whole concept can be a bit confusing for you. No worries however. We are there to educate you on your best and make sure that you fill your pockets with sunshine. Given below are some of the most frequently asked questions which people ask us about our company and everything related to solar.
The reason why people go solar is the benefits it offers in contrast to the conventional sources of energy. You can have a look at the most popular reasons and decide for yourself why you should go solar.
Savings on money. Perhaps the biggest advantage of solar power is that you are able to save on your monthly electricity bills. You will have to pay very less in comparison to what you are originally paying. This happens because solar production has the power to nullify what you would have purchased from the utility company. This power is much cheap.
You become a green owner. Going solar means clean and green energy. This implies green ownership and a reduced carbon footprint.
Since solar does not have any moving parts, no maintenance as such is required in it. One thing you can do to keep your solar panels is minimising shade and seasonal rainfall is sufficient enough to keep them clean. As far as snow is concerned, you need not to worry since solar panels are an excellent heat absorber which melts it.
Solar panels are incredibly resilient and durable. At Urban Solarise, we make use of high quality PV panels which are developed by reputed manufacturers who perform thorough testing of the products. Apart from this, we also offer workmanship and performance guarantees. In the rare case of any system part failing, we will recover it free of charge, in the covered time periods.
We even offer solar AMC packages for solar systems maintenance and monitoring. Through this, our service team keeps an eye on the working of your system to ensure that it works the way it should. In case the output is less than expected, we will let you know and remedy the situation soon. Along with maintenance and monitoring, we also include extended warranty and warranty repairs in our service package. We will repair or replace any broken part free of cost.
We assign a Project Manager to all our customers who will serve as your contact person all through the project. He will schedule a Kick-Off meeting to commence the project and will look after:
This entire process is quite time consuming and takes 1-2 months. Your Project Manager will make this whole experience very simple and carefree. This makes us different from our competitors.
Once the approval and paperwork gets over, our installers and electricians will install the system. Local inspectors will come to verify whether the system meets the codes & standards. It is the task of Project Manager to coordinate all necessary inspections after the system installation.
Once the inspections are done with, we will submit an application for final interconnection approval to your utility company. This can take up to 45 days. Once the utility company gives us the approval, an official from utility company will install the net meter and you will be ready to power up your system!
Net metering is a solar incentive that accompanies solar power system installation. The whole concept goes like this-when your solar power system gets installed, your utility company also installs a bidirectional meter which is used for measuring the amount of electricity you use from your utility and the amount sent back into the grid. Through this device, you would be able to send back the extra power generated, back into the grid. You will receive the full retail value of that electricity and then after each billing cycle, you will be the generator of the “net” difference in electricity used and sent. If the electricity sent turns out to be greater than the amount used during the single billing cycle, you will earn credit on your next bill.
A big advantage of net metering is that you can even earn negative electricity bills. It speeds the payback period and boosts the returns on solar investment.
