Frequently Asked Questions Archives - Momentum Solar


  • Are solar systems expensive?
    • Solar energy systems are an investment for your future. Many homeowners end up saving thousands throughout the lifespan of their system!
  • How much money can I save by going solar?
    • The exact amount varies for each home based on their location, home size and energy requirements. Most homeowners save thousands by the end of their contract.
  • Do I receive credit for my extra energy production?
    • When your solar panels produce more power than your home can use, the excess electricity is automatically sent back to the grid. Through net metering, you’ll be building a ‘bank’ of credits with your utility company.

How Solar Works

  • How do my panels generate electricity?
    • Solar panels absorb sunlight and convert the light energy into usable electricity for your home.
  • What if it’s not sunny outside?
    • Solar panels can still generate electricity even when the sun is not at its brightest.
  • Will I have electricity if the power goes out?
    • For the safety of the maintenance workers resolving any electrical issues during a power outage, your electricity would also be powered down. You would still be connected to your neighborhood’s grid to ensure you have a consistent flow of energy during normal hours, which is why you cannot keep using electricity when your power goes out.

Selling Your Home

  • What if I want to move before my contract is up?
    • If you sell your home, you can transfer your solar agreement to the new homeowner pursuant to the terms of your solar service agreement. The process is very easy and offers electricity savings, which is a great selling point when your home is on the market.
  • Will panels make it challenging to sell my home?
    • Since solar energy is rising in popularity, homes with panels installed typically sell at a higher rate than similar homes without panels.

Billing & Payments

  • Are there any payment plans to help finance my panels?
    • Momentum Solar customers can choose to pay for their panels via cash payments, a solar lease, solar loans or a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). Each option has different benefits to suit a variety of household needs and preferences.
