Lodi, California is Going Solar
Lodi, California is a great place to go green with a solar panel roof for a number of reasons, not the least of which is great exposure to the sun. Couple that with the cost of converting to a solar energy system dropping across the entire state, and you have the perfect time for putting those solar panels on your roof.
Savings You Can Expect in 2018
Low prices are always an incentive, but when considering switching your home or business to solar, the long-term return on your investment (ROI) should also be a big consideration. Right now is a great time for Lodi homeowners and businesses to research solar energy companies and look into the average savings of converting from a conventional system to a solar energy system.
Why is Now the Time for Solar Panels in Lodi?
Solar energy has been and continues to be a political football that gets tossed around according to various state and federal political agendas. Right now, both state and federal incentives are in place to reduce the cost of a solar photovoltaic system to the most affordable levels ever for Lodi residents. At Synergy Power, we are committed to not only designing and delivering the best possible solar panels installation for homes, but also for your specific needs and situation. We want to help you take advantage of all incentives available to you. Based on a twenty-year average, the typical Lodi, California homeowner with a 5kW solar energy system can expect to save $51,560.00, while increasing the resale value of their home by a minimum of $15,000.00, using the value of homes sold in Lodi in 2017 that had solar systems.
Solar System Assessment
We are committed to you being completely happy with your solar energy system. We know that there are a lot of solar panel companies out there, and that your satisfaction is the key to our continued success. That’s why we do the entire job ourselves. We can guarantee the results. We begin our relationship with you by giving you a quote that includes:
- A roof assessmentthat tells us how much roof area is available for PV solar panels and how much sun they will get on an average basis.
- A production estimatethat estimates how much power the solar panels should produce in kilowatt hours (kWh) per year.
- The make and model of equipment being proposed. A solar energy installation consists of panels, racks to attach the panels to your roof, and an inverter to change DC (direct current) power from the panels to AC (alternating current) that runs household appliances. The quote includes the make, model, and number of each component being proposed.
- Solar installation costsare quoted in dollars-per-watt with average costs ranging between $3.50 and $4.50 per watt. System costs depend on several factors, including the size of the installation and the condition of your roof. Note that the installation size is measured in kilowatts (kW), which means, for example, that a 5-kW system at $3.80 / watt would have a total cost of $15,000.00
- Available incentives– Get solar now before the Federal tax credit(ITC, Investment Tax Credit) is gone.
- A payback estimatethat uses the production estimate, incentives, and estimated electricity savings to give you a break-even point (4-5 years for businesses and 7 years for homeowners) along with how much you will save over the life of the panels.

Another important consideration for homeowners in the state of California considering solar panel installation is that the State exempts solar installations for property tax. This is great news, as the value of your home can increase thousands of dollars by adding a solar system. In fact, if you decrease your electricity bill by somewhere around $1,000 per year, real-estate agents estimate that you’ve increased the value of your home by between $15,000 and $20,000, which will not be added to your taxable property value base.
Maintaining Your Solar Panels
At Synergy Power, we recommend that you perform solar panel maintenance for your solar roof tiles every two years. Much like servicing a furnace or cleaning a fire place, maintaining clean solar panels means maintaining good production from them and your overall system. Many panels are easy to reach and are as easy to wash as your dishes. A little soap and water on a sponge and you’ll keep the system running effectively. Another great solution is a vinegar and water solution. Be sure not to use soap that leaves a solar panel too shiny as that will reflect rather than absorb sunlight. You can also simply call us, and we will be happy to clean the panels for you. It is up to you, but as any good auto mechanic will attest, a clean, well-maintained system works well and lasts longer. However, if time gets away from you, or some unforeseen circumstance happens, Synergy Power can perform solar panel repairs for you as well.
