About Solar Electricity

This is a list of questions that our customers ask before they select us for their project. If your question is not on the list, please contact our office to speak with one of our knowledgeable representatives.

Q: Do you offer free site evaluations?

A: Yes. Pacific Pro Solar Group, Inc. always offers free site evaluations as a part of our company introduction to the customer.

Q: Where is the best location for solar?

A: The best location for solar is determined on a site-by-site basis. Solar facing south not only produces more energy, it also yields higher rebates from the utility.

Q: What brand of PV panels is the best?

A: We do not endorse any single brand of panels but have selected many brands of panels that have the good output, warranties, and construction. There are panels that are "better" than others, but we have selected to only use panels that meet our strict quality guidelines.

Q: What is the difference between American made panels and overseas made panels?

A: The key difference between American panels and overseas panels is price however, pressure from overseas companies have caused American panel manufacturers to lower the price. Another difference is panel efficiency. Typically American panels have higher efficiency than overseas panels. We offer American panels and overseas panels but through our strict guidelines, all panels have higher than 90% efficiency (PTC /STC rating).

Q: Do you offer financing?

A: Yes. We offer financing options that meet most customers needs. We offer unsecured credit, home equity financing, and accept all major credit cards.

Q: Is solar free?

A: There are costs associated with solar, no matter what company you choose for your installation. Some companies offer solar for no out of pocket cost to the customer, but collect their costs by charging monthly payments that increase in cost over time (usually 3% per year). Pacific Pro Solar sells solar and offers several different forms of financing. Once the solar installation is complete, the energy produced is free.
