Every Solar Panel used in the Unicity install process are made up of photovoltaic (PV) Cells. When the sunlight hits your solar panels, the PV cells produce “direct current” (DC) electricity.

What are the financial benefits of solar energy?
When you install a solar energy system on your property, you can save money on your electricity bills and protect yourself against rising electricity rates in the future. How much you can save depends on the utility rates and solar policies in your area, but going solar is a smart investment regardless of where you live.
What are the environmental benefits of solar energy?
Solar power, like other renewable energy resources, has many environmental and health benefits. Going solar reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which contribute to climate change, and also results in fewer air pollutants like sulfur dioxide and particulate matter, which can cause health problems.
What is net metering?
Net metering is the system that utilities use to credit solar energy system owners for the electricity produced by their solar panels. With net metering, you only pay for the electricity that you use beyond what your solar panels can generate. Net metering policies differ from state to state – from Massachusetts to California to Hawaii – so make sure to do your homework ahead of time.
How does solar impact my property values?
Studies have shown that homes with solar energy systems can sell for more than homes without them. However, your property value may only increase if you own, rather than lease, your solar panel system. In most parts of the country, going solar can actually increase your property value more than a kitchen renovation.
What solar energy rebates and incentives are available?
Solar rebates and incentives vary depending on where you live. The most significant is the 30 percent federal investment tax credit (ITC), which allows you to deduct 30 percent of the cost of your solar energy system from your taxes. Some states offer additional tax credits, and certain municipalities and utilities also offer cash rebates or other incentives.
Can I afford to go solar?
If you can afford to pay your electricity bill you can afford to go solar. $0-down solar financing options make it easy for qualifying homeowners to start saving on their electricity bills by going solar. Get our free estimate to compare costs and savings for multiple financing options.
How long will my solar power system last?
In general, solar panels are very durable and capable of withstanding snow, wind, and hail. Our systems are warrantied to last for 25 years, but your system should continue to generate electricity for up to 35 years.
How long does it take to install?
Once you decide to go solar, we design the plans and submit them to permitting immediately. Depending on your county, the approval will take 2-6 weeks. Once approved we can schedule the install immediately, the install typically takes 1-2 days. On average most jobs are installed within 30 days from the start. (most companies take 3+ months!)
