Solar power FAQs

  • The price for investing in Alaskan solar energy will vary by your consumption, location, and roof condition. After solar incentives, the average cost of a residential solar panel system nationwide is $22,091, with additional costs for a solar battery. However, you could recover these costs in just over 13 years from the amount you’ll save on electricity bills.

  • Investing in solar panels in Alaska may not be practical if your home gets limited sunlight. However, homes in prime locations could see the benefits of solar power, including increased energy independence and cheaper electricity bills. Your energy consumption can also influence the effectiveness of your solar system.

  • Solar energy generators may qualify for federal tax credits and have the option to bank energy credits by returning excess energy to the power grid. These benefits help offset initial installation costs and will help you save money for decades to come.

  • You can find a solar panel installer in Alaska by utilizing SaveOnEnergy’s resources about the solar industry. Before signing a contract with any company, vet them and assess their reputation. A good company will guarantee their work with an extended warranty to replace or repair any damaged solar panels in the future. You should also read through online customer reviews and ask for customer references.

  • Homeowners concerned with climate change who want to enjoy a greener lifestyle will appreciate the switch to solar energy.
