    Frequently Asked Questions

    Common Questions About Solar Panels In Vermont

    Still have questions about getting solar panels installed at your home or property in Vermont? Browse some of our most common questions and answers below.

    How many solar panels do you need to power a house?

    Typically, an average-sized house will need 20 to 25 solar panels. However, depending on the size of the house, the sun exposure, where you live, and how much energy you consume, you could need more.

    How Is Solar Energy Produced?

    When the photons in sunlight hit the atoms in your solar panel, electrons can be kicked loose. Solar panels are designed to collect these disassociated electrons and store them in a battery to power your home and electronics.

    What is the best way to clean solar panels?

    In most cases, your solar panels will get a good cleaning every time it rains. However, if you’re in an area that doesn’t get rain very often, you can use a garden hose, a large sponge, and mild dish soap to clean your solar panels. Never use harsh chemicals, pressure washers, or any abrasives that might scratch the surface of your panels. Many solar panel installation companies will also offer inexpensive panel cleaning and maintenance.

    How much does it cost to clean solar panels?

    The prices range greatly depending on the size of the solar panel system that needs cleaning, the panel’s location, and the angle of your roof. The harder it is to get up to and reach your panels the more you can expect to pay. In general, costs can range from $20 – $30 per panel, but will depend on the specific company you contract.

    How much energy does a solar panel produce?

    Solar panels are typically going to be able to produce between 245 watts and 400 watts per hour. This means that if you live in a place that gets 6 hours of direct sunlight each day, a 300-watt solar panel will produce 1.8 kilowatt-hours and a 400-watt solar panel will produce 2.4 kilowatt-hours. Multiplied by 365, this adds up to about 650 kWh to 875 kWh per year.

    Can Snow and Ice Damage Solar Panels?

    Snow and Ice are rarely an issue for a properly installed and maintained solar panel system. Solar panels generate a good amount of heat through their operation and will usually melt any snowfall or ice accumulation. Solar panels are also almost always installed at an angle so snow and ice will generally slide right off. If your panels become entirely blocked by snow or ice, however, they will not generate power, the same as with any other debris that might cover your panels.

    How long do solar panels last?

    Solar panels have a typical lifespan of 25 to 30 years. Once solar panels reach this point they begin to decline in efficiency. However, with recent advances in solar panel technology, it could make more sense to replace your solar panels in 10 years to maximize the improved efficiency.
