SolShine Energy Alternatives offers small and large-scale PV installations for home and business in addition to consultation services for do-it-yourself homeowners, upgrading existing installations and site analysis to gauge if your home is suitable for a solar electric system. We also offer EV Charger Installation services.
Solar Installations & Consultations
At SolShine Energy, we offer design and installation of photovoltaic systems for both home and business. These systems can be either grid-tied, grid-tied with battery backup, or off-grid.
The cost of installing a photovoltaic system has never been lower. With module prices less than $0.75 a watt and many homeowners qualifying for a 26% Federal Tax credit through December 31 of 2022, the time couldn’t be better to explore if solar is right for you.
Want to do it yourself? SolShine Energy offers consulting services for do-it-yourself homeowners interested in powering their home with solar. Designing and installing a photovoltaic system that’s safe and meets code can be a daunting task. We can help you with that! Please contact us for more information.
Solar System Repair & Maintenance
SolShine Energy offers repair and maintenance services for existing photovoltaic systems. We excel at troubleshooting system failures & inefficiencies of grid-tie and off-grid systems.
Assessing the health of components such as solar modules (aka solar panels), inverters, charge controllers and batteries is our specialty. Call us if you suspect a failure or underperformance.
Determining if a PV system is underperforming can be difficult. SolShine Energy can safely assess your system’s performance and make recommendations to enhance efficiency or repair any failures.
SolShine Energy also offers scheduled preventative maintenance services along with cleaning of modules. Long periods of no precipitation can cause an accumulation of dust and dirt that will reduce a PV system’s efficiency from 4 to 20%.
A CLEAN ARRAY IS A HAPPY ARRAY!
Contact us to assess your PV system’s condition or if your system is in need of repair.
Service Call Rates
Technician Hourly Rate: $150 per hour
Crew Member Hourly Rate: $50 per hour
Mileage Charge: $0.50 per mile
Work time will be billed in 15-minute increments with a one-hour onsite minimum. You will be told in advance if the technician is bringing a crew member.
In addition to the work time spent on site, SolShine Energy charges for travel time in 15-minute increments. We calculate the roundtrip travel time using Google maps when there is no traffic. We also charge $0.50 per mile based on the shortest distance according to Google maps.
If Google maps shows the shortest one-way distance from the SolShine office to your location is 12.2 miles which we round to 12 miles each way. You will be charged for 24 miles at $0.50 per mile. If Google maps shows the fastest one-way travel time is 17 minutes, then the roundtrip travel time is 34 minutes. We round to the quarter hour so you would be charged for 30 minutes of travel. We use this formula so that our customers do not pay for extra travel time in the event of traffic or other stops along the way.
