Solar FAQ

RevoluSun’s solar energy leaders are excited to help homeowners and business owners learn more about how high-performance solar panels work — and how they save you money in the long run.

Is my home eligible for solar electricity?

Some solar companies claim that only 15% of homes in Massachusetts are eligible for solar, but the truth is that the majority of homes in Massachusetts communities will qualify.

What makes RevoluSun’s solar installations a cut above the rest?

Our top Massachusetts solar panel installers understand that your home is your most important investment and approach each job with the utmost care and respect for your space. Every job we do is fully customized to fit your home or business’s unique layout and energy needs, which, as you can imagine, offers many benefits over the “one-size-fits-all” solar kits offered by some solar providers. All of our in-house solar installers are highly trained, and we are set on building relationships with our customers, so you don’t have to worry about us leaving you high and dry after your system is set up.

Should I buy or lease my solar electric panels?

There are unique benefits to both leasing and purchasing solar panels in Massachusetts. Our Project Developers can review your situation and help you decide which option suits you best.

  • Leasing solar offers lower upfront costs — you don’t pay for panels or installation, and your electric rates can be offset by a fixed-price agreement with your lease provider.
  • Buying solar offers the quickest and highest return on investment — you own the system and directly benefit from the power it generates for 30 to 40 years or longer.

Are RevoluSun’s PV systems covered under warranty?

Our two bestsellers, SunPower and Sun Edison, offer unbeatable warranties — 25 years for both product and performance! Add that to the RevoluSun production warranty that guarantees every job, and you’ve got a system that’s truly worry-free.

What are the long-term savings with purchased solar electric panels?

Depending on the size of your PV system, you can greatly reduce or completely eliminate your electric bill. The average solar investment payback is about six to seven years, and the savings will continue for many years after that.

Can solar energy reduce my heating bills, too?

Yes, solar energy in your home can help reduce your electric heat bills. You may also be able to use more electric heat in place of oil and gas (such as space heaters in the colder months).

What is the best way to choose a solar provider?

Reputation is everything when selecting a company you can trust to install and maximize your solar system. At RevoluSun, Massachusetts homeowners equate our name with quality installation (our team does all our installs), a superior product (high-performance solar panels from SunPower and more) and excellent workmanship (we deliver the most efficient and aesthetically pleasing solar system possible).

How does using a superior solar panel brand benefit me?

Going with a solar panel manufacturer at the top of their game like SunPower means you get insured warranties, advanced technology that’s been comprehensively tested, and a product that’s built for longevity. Essentially, a better solar panel means a more productive solar system and a very low cost of ownership.

What are the solar incentives for Massachusetts homeowners?

Massachusetts is one of the nation’s leaders in solar incentives. A good portion of a purchased system can largely be covered by the Federal and State programs, but with the rules being scrutinized daily, it’s a wise move to start your solar plan as soon as possible.

  • 15% MA state tax credit – personal credit up to $1,000

What if I need to replace my roof down the road?

In the event that you need to replace the roof on your home or business during the life your solar system, make sure you work with a reputable roofing company that can work around the system — and/or a certified electrician who can detach and reinstall the system. We can recommend contractors who are familiar with solar systems, or you can call us.

What happens when there is snow on my roof, or no sun?

Fortunately, net energy metering allows you to accrue and leverage credits for electric power from the grid during times of low sun exposure. With a properly designed system, you should generate enough on sunny days to cover your energy use on days with lower production.

Do solar panels increase my home value?

Absolutely! According to the Appraisal Journal*, a home’s value is increased by $20 for every $1 reduction in annual energy savings — so for every $1,000 you save on electricity a year, your home value goes up by $20,000. Also, according to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy, a solar-equipped home is likely to sell twice as fast as a home without solar.
