When making the commitment to install a solar power system on your property, you may want to know how you’ll be generating clean electricity:

How You Save

When you pre-qualify for a free, in-home consultation, an experienced solar specialist will review your electricity usage with you. If you have a high electricity bill and your roof receives a lot of sunlight, you’re already a great candidate for meaningful monthly savings.

Your savings are determined by several factors, including:

  • Electricity usage
  • Electricity cost
  • Roof space
  • Shading on your roof & property
  • Roof position & tilt

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Your solar provider cannot guarantee what your bill from the utility company will be after going solar. The bill will depend on the amount of energy you use from the grid after your solar production is subtracted, which was presented to you as an estimate based on your usage from the previous year. It does not factor in any adjustments in future energy usage, like installing a pool or a hot tub on your property.

Yes. You will continue receiving a bill from your utility company for basic service and any power needs not supplied by your solar system. You will receive a separate bill for your solar service agreement.

When the sun goes down, any extra energy you produce during the day is pushed back into the grid, offsetting your energy use at night or when it’s cloudy. During the sunny summer months your system will produce the most energy, so the credits you’ve earned during those days of overproduction will be helpful during winter months when the days are shorter.

We offer complimentary maintenance and monitoring so that we can identify issues and fix them accordingly is provided as part of many of our programs. We also offer real-time monitoring software to all of our customers that will allow you to track your energy usage from your smartphone or computer, so you’ll know if you are not producing as much as you should be.

A warranty that covers the solar generating equipment (panels and inverters) for the life of the service contract is provided as part of many of our programs. These programs provide “worry-free” maintenance because it’s taken care of at no cost to you.

In the event of your passing, your heirs will be able to experience solar savings by simply continuing to make your monthly payments. If they sell the home, they can transfer the solar agreement to the home buyer.

If you sell your home, you can transfer your solar agreement to the new homeowner pursuant to the terms of your solar service agreement. The process is very easy and offers electricity savings, which is a great selling point when your home is on the market. The Evolve Commercial Solutions Customer Experience team will walk you through the entire process, but it’s important that you contact us by email at  Info@evolvesolar.com.au or by phone at 1-800-552-8300 as soon as you decide to sell your home.

The reason for a 20 or 25-year term is to keep your rate per kWh as low as possible. Your solar savings are either locked in or predictable so that you can enjoy peace of mind for years to come.
