FAQ

How does solar work for a business?

Solar panels, otherwise known as photovoltaic (PV) panels convert sunlight into DC electricity. An inverter converts the DC electric to usable AC electric for your business. During the day, any additional electricity that your business does not use gets fed back into the electric grid. At night when the solar energy system is not producing energy, you will continue to draw energy from the grid as you do now. Net-metering is where the electric utility will credit you the energy that your solar produced against what you used to determine your electric bill for the month.

How much does solar cost?

Currently in most markets, solar energy costs less than the traditional electricity you receive from your electric utility company. See what solar can do for your business by using SolBid’s no charge Instant Proposal and get a complete 25yr financial analysis.

Will Solar panels damage my roof?

No. Our solar mounting systems are designed to avoid any damage to your roof’s surface. Actually, solar panels over your roof surface can lead to reduced UV damage to your roofing surface and as well increase the insulation value. Our flat roof and standing seam solar energy systems use a non-penetrating style mounting system, so we do not put any holes in your roof. Our sloped roof products do however utilize a sealed flashing kit and lag bolts to the rafters.

What if I need to make repairs to my roof in the future?

Solar panels systems can be removed and replaced for any roof repairs that may be necessary in the future. Solar energy systems are very simple, with a limited number of parts. However, we suggest having licensed electrician remove / replace the solar energy panels. Preferably the original electrical contractor who did the installation.

What if I Lease my building?

SolBid will negotiate with your landlord to get you a rooftop easement for your business to allow for solar panels to be placed on the roof. You would be surprised to receptive your landlord might be to solar as an addition to their property.

Solar panels do just fine in snowy conditions.

Typically, in < 8” snow falls the snow will slide off the panels due to their smooth glass surface and tilt. If you have a sloped roof with solar panels, we do recommend a snow brake at the roof’s edge. For heavier snow falls you might have to take a foam snow rake to the panels if you get enough accumulation. If you are on an O&M plan with SolBid we will take care of the snow removal for you.
