Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to common Solar Power System Installation questions.

What is a residential solar power system?

A residential solar power system is a grid-tied residential system that collects sunlight using photovoltaic panels and other accessories to produce solar energy for your home.

How much energy will my solar panels produce?

The number of solar panels and their size, the efficiency of their cells, and the amount of sunlight hitting your roof will dictate how much solar energy your panels are producing. Please set up an in-home consultation to discuss with a solar provider.

How much does it cost to install solar panels on my roof?

The cost of getting a residential solar power system installed will vary based on where you live and the region’s number of peak sun hours. A system’s size and your home’s current energy consumption patterns will also factor into the cost of getting solar panels installed and how much you can expect to save as your solar system collects solar energy. Please set up an in-home consultation to discuss with a solar provider.

Solar Power System Installation


Solar power is a leader in the growing clean, renewable energy movement. If you own your home and feel you are paying too much for electricity, then solar power may be the right clean energy option for you. Every year, The Home Depot helps thousands of homeowners install solar power systems that will reduce the cost of monthly electricity bills. This important transition to solar power requires custom designers and experienced contractors who are with you from start to finish during your solar panel installation.

You'll be guided through all phases of your solar energy project, including a free consultation, system design, purchase, local permitting, installation, ongoing monitoring and maintenance. Our expert designers and solar panel installers will save you time and make the addition of solar power easy with a quick install. The team will even take care of all the installation-related paperwork with your local permit office, as well as meet with city and utility inspectors to ensure your solar power system is approved and ready for activation.


How Solar Panels Work

Solar power systems help convert sunlight into electricity to power. This would not be possible without the use of solar panels. Panels collect sunlight using photovoltaic cells and transfer the generated electrical current through wiring to produce electricity. Solar panels can also be wired together to create a system, increasing the amount of solar energy collected and solar power produced. Regardless of the type of solar panel used, the most ideal location of a solar power system would be installed panels on a roof – in a region with long peak sunlight hours – with the panels facing toward the south (for homes in the northern hemisphere).


Advantages of Solar Power
Investing in a solar power system is easier today than ever before. The power system and number of solar panels needed will be custom to your home and its needs. During your free in-home consultation, The Home Depot’s local solar power installer will clearly explain the installation process and how easy it is for you to go solar. By powering your home with clean, renewable solar energy, you’re creating a healthier environment and conserving traditional, finite resources. Lowering the cost of your electricity bills, having solar panels installed that require little-to-no maintenance for decades, and investing in renewable power are some of the best advantages of utilizing solar energy.

Clean Energy
Solar power systems offer every homeowner a clean, renewable energy source that produces no carbon emissions. The result? Cleaner air, water and food for everyone. Having professional designers and experts install solar panels on your home is a great first step to reducing your carbon footprint.

 
         

Lower Your Electricity Bills

When you go solar, you get more control of your monthly electricity costs. You’ll know what to expect including the amount of electricity your system will deliver. And, the longer you own your solar power system the bigger the savings will be.

Low Maintenance

Solar panels, by design, have no moving parts, which means there's less for you to maintain. You’ll be notified if your system requires maintenance due to a drop in power production. Professional monitoring of your system combined with occasional cleaning and inspection will help to keep your installed solar panels running for 20 years or more.
