Why Solar:


The simple answer is to SAVE MONEY. With utility prices on the RISE annually (especially electricity), solar panel energy systems will keep your electricity rate consistent right around FREE or close to it. The solar panel energy system will be designed to meet your specific energy needs. Other reasons for solar would be for electrical blackouts from a possible disaster and the ability to be set up for battery back up in the future depending on the system you go with.

When is the right time to get solar panels?

Solar is an investment. Like any investment TIME is a valuable factor. The sooner you install a solar panel energy system the quicker your return on investment is paid and you start putting the money in your pocket. It may pay off better than your stock portfolio.

Will I see a return on investment:

Tiger Patio will provide a free evaluation looking at:

  • Your electric bills over the course of one year.
  • Cost of your specifically designed solar system.
  • Current Tax credit offered by the government.

We will then go over with you a savings calculation so you can actually see your return on investment, time of return and realistic financial expectations.

Is there maintence involed with my Solar Panel System

Not much as there are no moving parts. You can keep the panels clean by hosing them off every once in a while, or as we see here in southern California… mother nature does it for you.

How long will my Solar Panel System last?

The system comes with a 25 year manufacturer warranty on solar panels and equipment (some restrictions apply, call for details). Your system may last longer depending on specific variables such as weather conditions.

How much will my Solar Panel System cost to install?

We would love to be able to give you a quote on how much your solar panel system will cost to install; however, there are so many different factors that need to be analyzed to give an accurate quote such as:

  • The size of the solar panel system
  • Location of installation
  • Pitch of the roof
  • Direction of the roof (as an option we can install a patio cover or gazebo that would be placed in the optimal direction for gathering sunlight if the direction of your roof is not optimal for solar panels)
  • Strength of the roof
  • Additional construction upgrades such as roof reinforcements and electrical system upgrades

Because of these considerations as you can see anyone of these factors can drastically affect the cost of your solar panel installation. That is why we offer a free evaluation from one of our Tiger patio solar installation experts so that an accurate quote can be given. Rest assured we don’t like it when pushy salesmen come to our home to speak to us about things we need done… So we wouldn’t do the same to you. All estimates are completed by a solar specialist who’s sole interest is total customer satisfaction meaning that if solar is not right for you we will let you know.
