This isn’t financing question per se, but with the current solar systems you are installing, if one wanted to in the future, could it be converted into an off-grid system?

do you have any formal affiliation with Duke?

Hey, Paul. This is primarily a grid-tied hybrid program. Typically the systems do not produce enough in the winter to cover the entire usage. We rely on building credits in the early summer and fall to cover those bills. Hope that helps.

Solar is in very high demand in Asheville and homes already installed with a good production will get a very high amount of interest at resale.

What percentage pay in cash?
Jake Knight
01:04:38
We don’t require any cash upfront, but you can certain pay up front any portion if you would like to lower the monthly payment.

We have lots of trees on our neighbor and they create lots of leaves in the fall. Would that caused problems with the panels or allow leaves to rot the roof if they get stuck under the solar panels.

I’ve heard the Duke program is difficult to get.

I have a “middle-aged” roof. How hard/more expensive is it to reshingle a roof after solar panels are installed?
Charles Forrest

Thank you, that’s helpful.
