Incredible experience with an superior company, the process has been painless, from expert knowledge, upfront explanations, practically hand-free work as the customer while both True Solar jumped through the required hoops to ensure all the i's were dotted and the t's were crossed with all of the agencies involved to include everything needed in regard to the solar tax credit and working with the MidAmerican Energy to get everything needed leading up to the new meter required to get the solar power juice flowing. Highly recommend jumping on the solar band wagon, now is the time to get'r done!

After getting quotes from a few solar companies we decided to go with true solar. Dave and Brandi made the process as easy as possible from the design to the loan. They were the best cost of any of the quotes, were the most transparent with details, seemed the most knowledgeable of city codes, and helped us create the design that was really best for us, not just easy for them. In addition, when they found things in our electrical that weren’t up to code, they did not charge extra to fix them.

We had been considering solar panels and after meeting with John at True Solar it was an easy decision to go with them. John met with us several times and answered every question we had before signing anything. Even after signing and moving to working with Brandi for the remainder of the install process, John followed up with us after our panels were turned on to make sure we were satisfied with everything and that everything went well throughout the rest of the process. After signing, Brandi came on and her communication was strong and consistent throughout the whole process, keeping us in the loop each step of the way. We had our solar panels up and installed, all permits and everything cleared with the electrical company, and our panels turned on within 2 months of signing. The process was extremely stress free. We had one slight miscommunication, however when we asked for clarification it was immediately taken care of. We highly recommend True Solar if you are considering solar panels.

Energy independence

For many, the primary incentive for home solar panel installation is energy independence. By producing your own power, you gain greater control and lessen dependence on the grid.

Moreover, when you generate surplus energy, it’s possible to sell it back to the grid, earning credits on your utility bill. This practice, known as net metering, permits homeowners to offset electricity costs by harnessing excess energy during the day and consuming it at night.

Financial savings

A key advantage of home solar panel installation is the potential for substantial savings on electricity bills. The reason behind this is that solar panels enable self-generation of electricity, reducing or even eliminating the need for purchasing power from utility companies.

As a result, homeowners often experience significant reductions in their electricity bills and the possibility of complete elimination.

Increased home value

Homebuyers, especially those environmentally conscious, find solar panels attractive.

According to a study from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, homes with solar panels tend to sell for approximately 4% more than those without. For instance, on a $500,000 home, installing solar panels could potentially add an extra $20,000 in value.

Resilience during emergencies

During a power outage, traditional grid-tied homes that solely rely on the power grid may be left without electricity. This situation can be especially concerning for individuals with medical or essential electrical needs.

Conversely, in the case of a home with a battery backup system connected to their solar panel installation, the stored energy can be used to provide power during an outage.

Within our guide book, you’ll find insightful answers to commonly asked solar questions, detailed explanations of how solar energy works, and specific reasons why True Solar is the top choice for all your solar installation needs. Best of all, our guide book is completely free to all who are interested in learning more about this innovative and sustainable energy source.
