Commercial Solar FAQs

How long do commercial solar panels last?

Solar panels with crystalline are usually guaranteed for 20 to 25 years. In comparison, film solar panels are guaranteed for only 2 to 5 years. Warranties for photovoltaic solar panels typically last for 25 years. See our Homeowner’s Guide to Solar Panels for more details.

How long do solar panels take to pay for themselves?

The average payback period or break-even point for solar panels is just about 8 years. And depending on where you live, your solar panels can pay for themselves in as quickly as 5 years.

Do solar panels work at night?

While solar panels do not produce electricity at night, they do produce power during the day when the sun is out. To keep your home’s electricity running after sunset, most of our solar customers use either solar battery banks to store extra energy or net metering.
