WHAT TO EXPECT
Home and business owners who go solar save on electricity bills, cut operating costs, and lock in energy rates. Start by learning some basics that can help you decide whether solar is right for you.
HOW SOLAR SYSTEMS WORK
Solar panels generate DC power when exposed to sunlight. They are mounted on your roof with racks and paired with an inverter or several microinverters, which convert the DC power into AC power that your home or business can use. Solar is the only form of electrical generation that typically has no moving parts and requires minimal maintenance.

WHERE SOLAR WORKS THE BEST
Solar works all over the country for homeowners and small businesses, but it’s especially popular in areas with great sunshine or good local incentives. States with net metering allow your meter to spin backward as your solar panels generate more electricity than you use. You only pay the utility what’s left on the meter. Learn more about net metering.
HOW SHADE AFFECTS SOLAR
Shade will definitely impact performance, though JinkoSolar has developed technology that mitigates the impact of shade and still allows the solar panels to generate a lot of power. Click here to learn more about our shade tolerant products
HOW LONG A SOLAR SYSTEM LASTS
The solar panels come with a standard 25-year power warranty, which guarantees that they will still be functioning at 80.2% of original efficiency in year 25, though data suggests panels will continue functioning well beyond those 25 years. Very inexpensive third-party supplemental warranties are also available for additional peace-of-mind. The panels are very durable and are effective at withstanding heat, hail, ice, snow, wind, and salt mist. JinkoSolar also has a strategic relationship with DuPont, the inventor of Kevlar, to ensure 100% of our panels are protected using extra-durable Tedlar®, the only backsheet material proven to survive 30 years in the field.
SAVINGS FROM A SOLAR SYSTEM
How much you will save depends on the size of your system, your current electricity prices, and local incentives. In many cases, due to the federal investment tax credit, which is currently 30% of the value of the solar system, you may be able to start saving immediately after installation. Don’t wait too long, because the tax credit steps down over time and will eventually zero out. JinkoSolar installers will outline these savings during the quotation process.
COST OF SOLAR SYSTEMS
Consider solar a long-term investment. Home systems may cost several thousand dollars if purchased with cash, but financing options for homes and businesses include leases and power-purchase agreements. These options allow customers to go solar with no money down or out-of-pocket expenses. Click here to learn more about our Financing Options.
