You have questions about solar panels for your home, ARRES has answers.

Are solar panels expensive?

Installing solar panels on your home is an investment, but it doesn’t have to be costly. The experts at ARRES show you how your system pays for itself:

  • Receive Federal tax credits
  • Receive South Carolina tax incentives for solar energy
  • Rebate programs for residents
  • Return on your investment in as little as 5 years
  • Earn credits from your utility company
  • Solar financing loans with zero money down

What if I want to sell my home after installing solar panels?

Your high quality solar system has a lifetime of 25-30 years, and the warranty is transferrable. What’s more, choosing to install solar increases the value of your home. When it comes time to sell, buyers will line up at your door knowing that they will enjoy decreased electricity bills the moment they move in!

Solar panels will look ugly on my roof.

Quite the opposite…haven’t you heard, solar panels are what’s in every season! You’ll be the talk of the neighborhood, and for good reason. Once the other homeowners realize how much money you’re saving, they’ll want to convert to solar energy too.

This seems complicated. How does it all work?

We believe an educated consumer is the best consumer. An ARRES team member who actually works in the field will explain your system, the components and how solar power works in easy to understand terms, so that you know what is happening with your project from start to finish. After all, this is your home and your investment and you need someone you can trust.

Here is a quick overview of how solar systems work.

  • ARRES installs a high quality photo-voltaic solar system on your home.
  • Your system is made of crystalline cells which absorb and convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity.
  • The panels mounted on your roof are then wired to an inverter.
  • This inverter changes the (DC) current to alternating current (AC) through the electrical panel, which is what is used to power your home.
  • The meter measures the energy you use, and feeds excess to the grid
  • If you generate more energy to the grid than you consume, your utility company will issue you a credit, further decreasing your electric bill.
