Affordable Solar Installation for Your Home

For many homeowners looking for a simple option to help them save money on their electric bill, a solar electric system for their home is a great way to start. A residential solar electric system utilizes photovoltaic technology to generate power for your home. In most cases, 100% of our customer’s previous usage is offset by the systems that we install.

Clean, Reliable Energy for Your Home

Energy is necessary to turn on the lights and run your appliances, but many don’t realize the negative implications of relying on fossil fuels for energy generation. By investing in a solar electric system for your home, you’re not only saving money, but you are doing your part in drastically reducing your carbon footprint by utilizing much cleaner energy for your daily energy needs.

Invest in your home by selecting a company that you can trust.

We understand that any time you decide to work with a contractor, you are taking a gamble on their quality, pricing, and reliability. At New Day Solar, we let our reviews speak for themselves. We are family owned and operated. Scott Carlson, our contractor has been installing residential solar electric systems since 1988 and is a true pioneer in the solar industry. His wife Mary has been his Operations Manager for almost 20 years. His son, Brandon Carlson sits on a variety of solar industry boards for codes and standards and works extensively with the California Solar Energy Industries Association. We began our company to provide what we’ve always believed in: an affordable renewable energy solution for families and business owners in our community.

We diligently stand behind our quality of our work and strive every day to give unsurpassed customer service. With a professional installation from New Day Solar, you can be assured that top quality equipment was installed to the manufacturer’s specifications, permits were pulled, Net Metering paperwork was approved, and the system was activated under proper codes and regulations by the local AHJ and utility. We work hard so that you don’t have to!

Does Your Solar System Need Repair?

Moving to a new home and want to verify that the solar electric system is working properly? The production numbers on a previously installed system seem a little low? Feel free to give us a call. It isn’t uncommon for someone to have an older solar electric system installed by a company that is no longer in business, but in need of a service call. In those cases, if an issue with your system is discovered, our staff can walk you through your options, and what solution would make financial sense for you. We want to get your system generating power and working for you, as soon as possible.

Solar Panels Require Minimal Maintenance

Since there are no moving parts in a solar electric system, minimal maintenance is required. If your home is located next to a dusty road, feel free to use a simple hose to rinse off the panels from time to time. However, make sure that it’s done in either the early hours of the day, or the late evening to prevent drastic glass temperature shifts from the cold water of the hose.

There is no reason to invest in a “solar panel cleaning” company, unless you have bird residue, tree sap or heavy soiling. If your solar system does develop a problem, don’t hesitate to contact one of our experts for questions, so we can find the best solution for you.
