Our residential solar services include:

  • SunPower Equinox - By using only SunPower products HES Solar is able to provide customers with a solar system that generates more power and is more reliable.
  • Roof-Mounted Systems - We’ve done over 300 roof mounted systems and can handle all types of roofs. HES Solar carefully places mounting hardware to preserve the aesthetics and roof integrity of the home. An added benefit of roof-mounted systems is the shading they provide. This shading can make a substantial improvement in summertime comfort. We offer a 10-year warranty against leaks caused by our installation and inspect roofs for competency before starting the job.
  • Ground-Mounted Systems - Customers sometimes want to use open ground space for panel mounting instead of putting panels on their rooftop. Trenching to the house can be a challenge if boulders are encountered and we take care to avoid other underground hazards such as piping and electrical conduits. Skills to handle rocky conditions are also useful in underground service to house main panel upgrades.
  • Battery Back-Up Systems & Energy Storage - Don’t get caught with the lights out. HES Solar has been installing battery back-up systems for over a decade, and we are now a Tesla Powerwall Certified Installer. The idea of energy storage is that one is able to store the energy generated by their solar system in batteries that are then connected to your home to supply energy at night or when your solar system is not producing.

Residential Solar FAQ

What is net metering?

Net metering is a billing mechanism that credits solar owners for any excess electricity that their systems generate and send back to the grid. Customers are billed only for their “net” energy usage (i.e. the difference between the energy produced by the system and the energy that is actually consumed).

How does solar impact the property value of my home?

Adding solar panels is a great way to increase the value of your home by approximately 4 percent or more. Because solar panels are a major selling point for many buyers, solar-powered homes may also sell more quickly—up to 20% faster according to many sources.

Will my solar panels still produce energy on cloudy or rainy days?

Solar panels are most effective in direct sunlight, but they can still work even when they are partially blocked by clouds, just with a diminished output. The good news is that rain actually washes dust, dirt, and other debris from the panels, which can ultimately boost their performance.

How long do solar panels last?

Solar panels will provide your home with decades of clean renewable energy. Our SunPower Equinox residential solar panels come with a 25-year combined power and product warranty for your peace of mind.

How long will it take for me to break even on my solar investment?

The average solar buyer will break even on their investment after about eight years, but that will depend on your specific financing, solar system size, and energy usage.
