There is a number of ways in which we can help provide solar for your home. Our installation team are solar experts and can help you save on energy costs and electric bills by maximizing your solar energy. In order to do this we take a number of variables into consideration. Our dedicated installation team has put together a number of important questions that can help you make the right choice in solar.
What is involved in a residential solar panel installation?
Approval for a financing method, approval from the state to generate SREC’s, approval from the utility company to produce and feed back electricity your system will produce, approval from the township to make sure the installation meets building and electrical codes as well as follows manufacturer’s specifications.
As far as the installation we make sure the existing building and electrical components can handle the loads of the solar electric system. We attach to the rafters using a waterproof flashing method on the roof. Installation of the panels and mounts and wire the solar panels to a microinverter directly under the panel, which is then wired down to a sub panel and disconnect near the existing electrical meter. We tie in our electrical components to the existing electrical connections at the property, typically right inside the main service panel.
How do I know my home qualifies?
Our design technicians will complete an assessment to see if the property is suitable for solar installation. We are looking for two main components:
- Does the property get enough sun to produce the amount of power the home needs? Direction and pitch of your roof is important during the installation process.
- Is there enough space on the roof or ground to offset enough power to make sense for the homeowner to switch to solar over the non-renewable energy they are purchasing now.
How much roof space is needed?
We are not able to confirm that until we know how much electricity the home currently uses. We ask for an electric bill to get started and prefer full 12 months usage to get a complete accurate assessment of the amount of panels and roof space needed.
How long does solar panel installation take?
The installation typically takes 1-2 days on a normal residential system. Getting the proper approvals from the state, utility and township typically takes 4-8 weeks to receive.
How will solar panels look on my house?
We take a lot of pride in our installations and treat your home as if it is our own. For that reason we use black on black panels with a black wind skirt which makes the systems look very appealing. We also will adjust the existing structures if needed to allow the panels to be a solid block if possible so it looks as aesthetically pleasing as possible.
How Long Is Residential Solar Payback Period?
The payback period is also directly related to the property, federal tax credit and production of the system which affects the SREC income and electrical savings. The average payback for ownership on a residential system is 4-6 years in New Jersey.

We do offer custom installations including the items we addressed above. Where most companies choose the path of least resistance and what is easiest for the installation, Spectrum Energy, Inc does what is best for the homeowner so they are happy with their system that will be producing their electricity over the next 25 years.
