MYTH

Solar panels don’t function on cloudy days.

MYTH

Solar panels require constant maintenance.

FALSE

It's true that solar panels won't generate as much electricity on a cloudy day as it will on a sunny day, but your solar panels will definitely continue to generate a moderately reduced amount of electricity on even the cloudiest day. Although we can’t control the weather, our designs incorporate past weather models for over a decade to accurately account for less sunny days.

FALSE

Quality solar installations are designed to be durable and virtually maintenance-free. Choosing the right solar partner is vital to ensure there's nothing to worry about for years to come. Although many companies boast a production guarantee through the manufacturer, EMPWR goes beyond with an industry-leading 25-year production and parts warranty on all panels, inverters, and racking.

MYTH

The price of solar panels is prohibitive.

FALSE

FALSE

Solar panels are less expensive now than they have ever been, and many homeowners see savings from the very first month. Most are unaware that there are federal, state, and utility incentives available that allow families to go solar for zero out-of-pocket. When you factor in increased value of your house, you'll find that solar panels will start saving you money sooner than you ever thought possible.

MYTH

I need a battery for my solar system to work.

MYTH

I’ll need to change my lifestyle if I go solar.

FALSE

As your panels convert sunshine to electricity, power flows through your home like normal. Excess energy is sent back to your utility company and in most utilities you get to pull that excess back at no cost. This means a solar system can actually provide electricity 24 hours per day, even when the sun isn’t shining. Batteries are available for emergency purposes or for utilities who don’t participate in net metering.

FALSE

Not at all. Today’s solar systems will power all your home’s electrical systems including lights, cooling and heating, and all your appliances. Systems are designed to blend easily into both modern homes as well as those built years ago. Your home will operate just like normal, and your appliances will never know the difference.
