Faster Payback, Period

A well-placed 4-panel system will produce about $200 of electricity per year (in the Midwest). With the EITC tax credit that's about a 6-year payoff (or less).  Your panels continue to save you hundreds of dollars per year for decades to come.

Use our PV-Watts powered app to compute your savings based on your exact location.

Our custom roof bases are a deck mount system, so it installs right on top of your shingles. No finicky flashing. No searching for rafters. No lugging long bulky rails onto your roof. Start with 4 panels and easily add more at any time.

Modular

View your real-time solar production from anywhere 24/7 with the solar monitor app, which logs both your savings and environmental impact over time.

Good to Know.

How do the panels power my house?


Just plug the included cord into any standard outlet on a dedicated circuit. After a 5 minute safety check is completed, your panels will begin powering your home and saving you money.




Do I need any tools?


Just a drill motor, a 1/2" drill bit, and a phillips screwdriver will have you well on your way to saving money and the planet.




What is this EITC tax credit "26%" thing I keep seeing asterisk* for?


*Anything you spend on solar in 2020 qualifies for a 26% Federal tax credit.

We'll make sure to send you these super simple instructions before tax season so you can get that money back when you file your taxes!




Will I need to do any maintenance, such as cleaning the panels or replacing parts?


No maintenance is required. The panels will self-clean with rain. (Assuming you live in a rainy climate, sorry Arizona) The solar panels and microinverters have a minimum life-expectancy of 25 years, - four times longer than the typical payback period.
