FAQ

What You Should Know

These are just a few of the questions you may be wondering about. We’ll do everything we can to help answer any other questions you have along the way.

How long does the whole process take?
Most installations take between 6-8 weeks from approval of estimate. Design, permitting, application and approval generally take 10-15 days. We’ll perform a site survey and then order materials after approval which requires about 20 days. Installation takes 2-5 days pending weather. Then the final step is the inspection, utility connection and turning the system on.
What does 360 Energy Audit include?
Services include: blower door testing for whole house leakage, duct blaster testing to check for duct-work leakage, CAZ testing for combustion appliance zones, installing programable thermostat and attic tents. Services also include visual inspections of all doors / windows & entryways, attic insulation, raised floor area crawlspace and all HVAC equipment.
How does net metering work?
During the day, your solar system often makes more power than the home consumes. The extra power returned to the utility is tracked by the net meter to ensure you receive credit for the extra power produced by your solar system. When the sun goes down and your system is not producing power, you will consume power from the utility. Your net meter will go both directions. At the end of the billing period, the utility will simply read the meter to decide your actual consumption. When you produce more than you use during a billing period, you will receive a credit on your account which will carry forward and help supplement those months when you produce less than you consume.
What does NABCEP Certified mean?
NABCEP stands for North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners® (NABCEP®) is the most respected, well-established and widely recognized certification organization for professionals in the field of renewable energy. In Simple Solar, our NABCEP professionals work to ensure that you work with an installer who knows precisely what they are doing. We count on our NABCEP associates to ensure we always adhere to the highest possible installation standards for the industry. In addition, our crews undergo a rigorous certification program to receive the training to handle your installation needs. Our technicians all respect National Electric Code standards and adhere to industry installation methods that can help you feel confident about the quality of the artistry put into your job. The Simple Solar team believes in providing you with optimal system design. We use reputable products for the installation and always strive to give you the best quality results possible.
What is PEARL Certification?
Pearl Certification is the standard for homes that go above and beyond to keep you comfortable, healthy and saving energy. Pearl Certification is a practical, valuable tool for homeowners who want to understand how their homes perform – and then keep improving them. Simple Solar was fortunate to work with PEARL because they only work with the top 5% of all contractors in the country. As one of the Elite Pearl Contractors, you can have confidence in us when it comes to expertise, excellent services, and quality artistry.
