How Solar Works
  • Will solar work on my home or business?


    We hope so! The two biggest factors are the amount sunlight you get throughout the day and the amount of open roof space. We can give you a quick assessment by looking at satellite photos of your property. If your roof looks good, we will schedule a follow-up free solar consultation where one of our experts will survey your site to evaluate if a solar power system will fit with your architecture and meet your energy needs.

  • Will I need to adapt my home or business to run on solar power?


    No. Solar power electric systems fit seamlessly into your building. You won't have to buy new appliances or change your electrical outlets; everything will work just the same as it did before. You should experience no practical changes except for one: you won't have to pay a big electrical bill every month!

    Back to Top

  • No big utility bill? Really?


    Really! When you begin to generate your own solar power, your electricity bill will drop significantly. How much you can save will depend on the size of your solar system and your electricity usage. When your solar system generates more electricity than your building can immediately use, your excess power flows back to the utility grid and your meter literally spins backward!

    Back to Top

  • Should I wait for new technology?


    No, now is really the best time to invest in a solar system with the combination of technology and cost. The underling benefit of turning sunlight into electricity will not change for as long as we still use electricity to power our homes and businesses! RGJ Power offers several solutions to our customers, including the latest in thin panel technology. We continue to evaluate new technology and will offer it to our customers once it becomes a reliable and cost effective option.

    The other key component in evaluating the right time to install solar is government incentives. Federal and state governments are currently offering generous rebates and incentives to go solar; however, these programs are designed to reward early adopters of solar power, so the rebate amount per project continues to drop as the allotted funds are consumed.

    Back to Top

  • What size solar system do I need?


    Every home and business is different, so the size of your system will depend on your energy needs, roof space and solar goals. Residential solar systems are typically 3-10 kW and commercial systems rage from 50– 500 kW for a medium sized business. RGJ Power will custom design a system to meet your specific needs and offset as much of your utility bill as you desire.

    Back to Top

  • What maintenance is required?


    Your solar energy system requires very little maintenance, largely because it has no moving parts. All your system requires is minimal shade, occasional cleaning and inspection. We suggest that you keep an eye on trees that may shade your system and keep them trimmed. The RGJ Power service team proactively monitors your system output to ensure that your system is performing as it should. In the unlikely event that your system underperforms, RGJ Power will alert you and help to remedy the situation. With our RGJ Power Solar Lease and RGJ Power Agreement, maintenance and warrantee repairs are included as part of our service to you.

  • How reliable is solar power?


    Solar systems built today are very reliable. They have proven to be dependable sources of energy for large office buildings, mass retailers and governmental agencies, supplying megawatts of energy. Some of the largest companies in the world have buildings powered by solar energy, including eBay, FedEx, WalMart, Whole Foods, and the US Air Force. RGJ Power has incredible high quality standards and only use best of breed equipment-- we build our systems to last.

  • Do I need a battery back-up system?


    No. Battery systems are expensive and are not recommended. All RGJ Power solar systems are connected to the utility grid so you always have access to a power source. You never have to worry about “running out” of power.

    Back to Top

  • What happens at night, or when the weather turns cloudy?


    Since the amount of power your solar system generates is a direct result of sunlight, it will produce slightly less energy when the weather is cloudy. Your system will not produce any energy at night. Your RGJ Power power system will be interconnected to your locally utility grid, so that you can automatically begin to draw power from the grid whenever you need it. You won’t experience any power interruptions—the switch between solar system power and the utility grid happens seamlessly, with no effort on your part.

    Back to Top

  • What happens if there is a black out?


    In the event of a black out, your system is designed to turn off. This is a safety requirement by the utility company so that their technicians can safely repair down electrical lines.

    Back to Top

  • How long will a solar system last?


    Most of the parts on your solar system, such as solar panels, carry manufacturer's warranties of 25 years; other parts, such as inverters, carry 10-year warranties. In addition, RGJ Power offers a warranty of at least 10 years on installation and system performance. Most solar systems may far outlast their warranties; many of the first solar systems installed more than 30 years ago are still going strong.

  • Installation Process
  • Is it difficult to switch over to solar power?


    No. RGJ Power makes it easy to switch to solar. We will get your solar system up and running as quickly and smoothly as possible so that you can start saving money and using clean energy. You won't experience any changes inside your home or business.

    Back to Top

  • How long will it take to get my new solar system up and running?


    A typical residential roof installation takes about 3-5 days and a typical commercial installation takes about 1-3 weeks from the day we begin the installation. The length of time depends on the complexity of your roof and the number of panels that will be installed. The estimated installation time will be included in the design proposal presented to you by RGJ Power.

    Back to Top

  • What kind of permits are needed to meet local building codes?


    As part of our comprehensive service, RGJ Power will obtain all building permits and design your system to meet your local building codes. We’ll arrange the electrical, building and utility inspections and be on-site to make sure that everything is up to code. RGJ Power takes care of your project every step of the way.

  • What if my roof needs repairs after I've installed solar panels?


    Ideally, you should install solar panels on a roof that is in good condition. When a RGJ Power site auditor comes out to inspect your building prior to installation, he or she will check to make sure that your roof is suitable for a solar installation. Once the solar panels are installed, they actually help to protect your roof from the elements. If you should ever need to make repairs on the roof, the solar panels will need to be removed and re-installed. RGJ Power offers this service for a reasonable fee.

  • Financial Benefits of Solar Power
  • Does a solar system make financial sense for me?


    Solar is a smart financial investment because you will save money on electrical costs for years to come and increase your home value. Our customers who purchase their system typically see a strong Return on Investment (ROI) and expect to recoup their solar system investment within 5-10 years. Depending on the rebates and incentives offered in your area, you may be able to pay back your system even sooner.

    With RGJ Power’s RGJ Power Solar Lease and RGJ Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), you can finance your system with zero upfront investment, so that you can start saving right away.

  • Will the government really give rebates and tax incentives for going solar?


    The incentives and rebates are both real and substantial. Both state and federal governments offer tremendous financial incentives for businesses to choose solar. A combination of incentives and tax credits can cover 50% or more of the total cost! The most important thing to keep in mind about these governmental programs is this—they won't last forever. Now is the time to take advantage of the federal and state mandate to switch to renewable sources of energy; once the adoption rate reaches a certain level, the incentives will disappear.

    Back to Top

  • Is now a good time to buy a solar system?


    Now is the perfect time to switch to solar. Federal and state governments are offering generous rebates and incentives to go solar; however, these programs are designed to reward early adopters of solar power, so the rebate amount per project continues to drop as the allotted funds are consumed. In additions, solar can dramatically reduce your utility bill and will protect you from rising utility rates for years to come.

    Back to Top

  • Do you have financing available?


    Yes. RGJ Power offers a RGJ Power Solar Lease for homeowners and a RGJ Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for business owners. Now you can start experiencing the benefits of solar power immediately—without any capital investment or equipment purchase. We install and maintain the equipment on your site. You just pay a low monthly payment.

  • RGJ Power Solar Lease
    • What are my options at the end of the a RGJ Power Solar Lease?


      A RGJ Power Solar Lease is a very flexible way to go solar. When your RGJ Power Solar Lease ends, you have several good options to choose from:
      • You can upgrade to a new system with the latest solar technology under a new RGJ Power Solar Lease.
      • You can also extend your existing RGJ Power Solar Lease in five year increments.
      • You can also purchase the system. Please see your Sales Representative concerning this option.
      • You can ask RGJ Power to remove your system for free.

      Back to Top

    • What if I move to a new home before the end of the RGJ Power Solar Lease?


      You can pass on the solar system to the new owners in two ways. The great thing about either of these options is that solar homes typically have a higher resale value, because their lowered electricity costs.
      • You can transfer the RGJ Power Solar Lease to the new homeowners if they qualify with excellent credit.
      • You can also prepay the lease and include it in the asking price.

      Back to Top

    • Can I decide to buy the system later?


      Yes, or you can renew your lease in five year increments.

      Back to Top

    • A RGJ Power Solar Lease includes full service. What repairs are covered?


      • With a RGJ Power Solar Lease, performance is guaranteed. Your free online monitoring service will alert you and RGJ Power of any changes in performance. If we see a problem, we will give you call to help diagnose the problem and dispatch a repair team to fix it if needed.

      • Every RGJ Power Solar Lease includes an extended warranty on workmanship and hardware through the end of your lease. RGJ Power will repair or replace broken components at no cost to you. For instance, your inverter will likely need to be replaced around year 12.
