Common Questions for Solar Panel Installers (Top 18)

October 10th, 2012 by  

Our friends over at leading solar company One Block Off The Grid recently published a post where CEO Dave Llorens answers the 18 most common questions that they receive while working with their customers.

You can find their answers to the top 18 questions homeowners ask about solar here. Here are the first three videos as a taster:

1. Does my solar power work if the power goes out?

2. How long does solar power take to install on my house?

3. Should I buy American made solar panels?


If you have any interest in installing a solar power system, I recommend you take a look at the rest.

  • ricky

    Does drit build up effect the power efficiency on my solar panels and do i loose out on power????

      It can. But often there is no problem.

      A test site outside of Tuscon didn’t wash panels for more than a year and when washed performance went up only 1%. Many large arrays are never washed except by the rain.

      But sometimes they do need a good cleaning. At my previous residence I had to clean mine during the blackberry season. For some reasons the birds liked to take a rest stop on the panels.
