Frequently Asked Questions About Residential Solar Panels

Do solar panels work when it's cloudy?

Yes, but not as effectively as they do on a bright, sunny day. The amount of energy produced depends on the amount of direct sunlight hitting the panels, which can vary considerably throughout any day.

Will my solar panels still work if the power goes out?

Due to government regulations, grid-tied solar systems will be shut down when the power goes out, to allow electrical workers to repair the power grid without danger from power flowing to the grid from your home or business. If you want your property to have energy during a power outage, consider a battery backup solar system, which unlike a generator, runs on the clean energy of the sun and are safe and reliable. Solar batteries work by diverting the excess solar energy your panels create to your battery so that you can power essential appliances when you need them.

Can I take my home "off grid" after installation?

While your solar panels will produce most, if not all of the electricity you need, most homes will remain connected to the power grid after installation. We wouldn’t advise anyone take their home completely off the grid unless they have a sturdy and reliable battery storage system in place.

How do photovoltaic (PV) panels work?

PV panels absorb energy from the sun and convert this energy into a direct current. Once collected, an inverter converts this energy into the AC current used by your appliances and other electronics.

Can I use solar panels if my property is shaded?

Yes, our team will provide a site analysis to help determine the best placement and design for your solar panels. In addition, we may provide recommendations about trees that should be cut back or removed to provide additional sunlight or prevent damage to your panels.

Will solar panels increase my property value?

Two studies, one conducted by the US Department of Energy’s Berkeley Lab over a 15-year period, and a more recent analysis conducted by Zillow, show having a solar energy system can increase the value of your home by $10-30K when it comes time to sell your home.

Can you install solar panels yourself?

Solar panel installation is a job best left to the professionals at TENCO SOLAR. This process requires specific training and involves a great deal of time on the roof to get installation just right. There are many laws, regulations, and safety standards that must be carefully followed during solar panel installation, so it's best to contact the installation professionals to get the job done right rather than risking injury, electrocution, or electrical system damage.

How many solar panels are needed to power a home?

The average size of a home in California is about 2,400 square feet, and the average customer uses about 718kWh of electricity per month. To cover the energy expenses for a home of this size, you need approximately 15 to 20 solar panels. However, depending on your exact energy consumption history and your home's actual size, the number of panels can vary.

How much does solar panel installation cost?

The cost of solar panel installation depends on the amount of energy you use, the size of your home, available tax incentives, the type of panels selected, and how many panels will be installed. Solar panel installation can vary significantly in price, from $5,000 on the low end to more than $40,000 on the high end. A TENCO SOLAR specialist can provide you with a custom quote for your home.
