Your guide to home solar panels in New Jersey
Yes, New Jersey is an excellent place to be when considering a solar installation for your home or business. New Jersey gets an average of 4.21 hours of peak sun hours. Still, this number can vary depending on whether you’re using a fixed solar panel or tilted one to maximize output at different times of the year.
The direction your solar panels face and the efficiency of your solar panels can significantly impact how much energy your system can produce.
To get the most out of your solar panels, it is recommended that you talk to a top solar installation company to ensure that the system is installed correctly.
The average residential customer spends just under $1,400 per year on their electric bill. We aim to offset 100% of your electric bill by switching you over to solar through meticulous planning.
You will receive two bills; one from your electric utility company for being connected to the grid (usually a few dollars!) and another from SunPower for your solar. Together, this will instantly lower your electricity bills by over 40%.

Going solar in New Jersey has never been more affordable! Owning a solar system means that you will get the lowest electricity rates, protected from price hikes for the lifetime of your contract.
The cost of going solar depends on various factors, such as the type of system you choose, your home’s location, and if you choose to pay for the solar installation with cash, a solar lease, or a loan.
The New Jersey solar payback period is one of the lowest in the United States, thanks to the tremendous solar incentives available to residents. The average solar payback period is 6 years, with 4 years being the minimum.
Contrary to what solar companies tell their customers, going solar is not free. Installing a solar system has several costs associated with it, including installation and equipment.
However, New Jersey solar incentives are in abundance, which will drastically cut down your overall cost.
Free solar should not be confused with ‘pay nothing upfront’ offers which many solar installers, including us, offer in the state.
Yes, a federal tax credit of 26% is available to those who install solar on their property.
Yes, you can sell the excess electricity your solar panels generate back to the grid in exchange for credits on your utility bill.
To take advantage of net metering, you will need a solar system and a net metering agreement with your utility company.
The electrical grid is under immense pressure to deliver due to an increase in demand. In fact, the second most common cause for electric-utility power outages was due to overdemand, only just behind weather/falling trees.
According to NY Post, 130,000 people in the tri-state area were left without power when Hurricane Ida hit. Unfortunate events like this can have detrimental effects on those who rely on electricity from the grid. Because of this, an increasing number of homeowners in New Jersey are considering adding solar battery storage to their home improvement projects.
We recommend that you consider going off-grid with solar battery storage because they help keep your home connected when grid power isn’t readily available. Solar batteries act as an energy bank for your home by storing excess energy that is collected during the day and returning it to your home’s appliances when you need it the most.
This technology enables you to take advantage of peak-time utility rates, saving you money on your monthly utility bills.
Installing solar panels on your roof can also be an excellent investment for your home. Research by Zillow shows that adding photovoltaic (PV) solar systems to your home will increase the value of your home by 4.1%. This is because solar provides increased financial security in lowering or eliminating electric bills and generating life savings that are hard to beat with any other type of investment.
