General Solar Information and Facts

When it comes to solar energy pros and cons, we've heard it all: It's for hippies, it's too expensive or it doesn't work. Yet more solar energy systems are being installed on homes and businesses than ever. We explain some FAQs about the pros and cons of solar energy.

Homeowners shopping for solar often ask us: How much energy does a solar panel produce?

It’s a good question because it will help you calculate how many solar panels you'll need to power your home. Depending upon its wattage, a single solar panel only makes enough electricity to power a light bulb for a few hours, but when you take a dozen or so high efficiency solar panels, you can power your whole household with clean energy from the sun.
