Why should I go solar?

  • Are there financial benefits of solar energy?
  • Solar energy systems can save you money on your electricity bills and protect yourself against surging electricity rates moving forward. The amount of credit depends on the electric rates and utility policies in your area, but going solar is always a great investment regardless of the area you live in.

  • Do you offer financing?
  • Yes, Mack Solar and Roofing has multiple finance partners that will ensure you get the best deal for your project. A member of our team will offer you different finance options that will be approved with no hard credit check. Once approved, the finance company will transfer the funds to you (the homeowner) where you won’t pay until you are completely satisfied with your work. Whether that be a solar panel installation or a roof replacement.

  • How does Net Metering work?
  • Net Metering is a network that power companies use to credit solar energy owners for the electricity generated by their solar panels. Using Net Metering results in you only paying for the electricity that you use that your solar panels couldn't provide. Worth noting, New Jersey offers TRECS (Transition Renewable Energy Certificates). This platform allows you, the home or business owner, to obtain payments from electric utility companies in NJ for excess electric generated.

  • Statistics have reported that homes or business properties with solar panel systems sell for higher. Keep in mind that your property value will only increase if you own out right, verses leasing your solar panel system.

Solar Panel Metering System

How does solar panel systems work for my property?

  • What are solar photovoltaic panels, and how do they work?
  • Solar panels absorb solar rays and convert it into direct current electricity. Most homes and businesses run on alternating current electricity, whereas direct current electricity is then passed through an inverter to convert it to usable alternating current electricity.

  • What happens when it is cloudy?
  • Solar panels can still generate power even if it is cloudy. The only time panels can't generate power is at night. Solar is always a smart investment, even if you live in an area that is frequently cloudy.

  • Can solar panels still work if covered in snow or leafs?
  • No, they rely on sunshine getting through to the panels. If snow becomes severe enough, in rare cases it may cause damage. The good news is typically panels are tilted so snow and debris can glide off.

  • Will I still be able to get electricity if at times when my solar panels are not generating power?
  • Absolutely, your system will never be off the grid. This allows you to draw power the grid when your system is not generating enough and send power back when you produce more than you need. It is possible to go off the grid with a solar energy system but typically this in not recommended due to cost-effectiveness.

  • Are electric bills still due if I have solar panels?
  • If your system includes battery storage and you are totally off the electric grid, you will still receive a bill from your electric provider. But you can significantly reduce your bill or even owe nothing with a solar panel system that matches your energy consumption.

  • What happens during a power outage?
  • More times than not, your panels will be producing more than enough electricity. If weather is not cooperating, your home will simply convert to your utility electric. On the other hand, during an outage, the same applies. Or, you have the option to add a battery to your solar system. This battery will store extra electric produced for long power outages.

  • Will I need to repair or replace my roof?
  • Your roof will be inspected prior to receiving your estimate. We will perform any repairs required. We recommend roofs older than 10 years get replaced before installing the solar system. But this can vary.

  • Is it expensive to maintain solar panels?
  • Solar panels are constructed with durable tempered glass and require little to no maintenance. The majority of solar panel systems don't need to be cleaned frequently.
