FAQ

What are the benefits to solar power?

Solar benefits include the fact that they're environmentally friendly, economically sound, California has net-metering, solar has no moving parts, and there are rebates from the utility companies and tax credits from the state.

Also see our Benefits of Solar page.



Does specialization in design take away from the system's yield or add to the overall price?

Quite the opposite, aside from the esthetics, CAGD's element of design adds to the panels' potential performance for your installation. Through design we can also accommodate more panels on your roof, tilt the panels according to your needs, and our prices are not affected and remain competitive.


What are the current rebates?

As you may know rebates fluctuate, we recommend linking to the following pages for more information:

Do the panels require any regular maintenance?

Solar panels are very low maintenance, they do not have any moving parts, and often outlive their 25 year warranty. We do suggest you occasionally wash off dust by gently hosing them down.
