Frequently Asked Solar Questions

At Preman Roofing-Solar, we aim to make solar roofing easy for our customers. Below are the most frequently asked questions we receive about our solar roofing service.

What are the advantages of solar roofing?
  • Solar roofing can:
    1. Reduce electricity bills
    2. Increase property value
    3. Enhance curb appeal
    4. Make your home eligible for California government incentives
    5. Be a reliable source of energy
How does the solar roofing system work?

Sunlight is harvested through the  panels to produce electricity. Panels take the energy gathered and send it to  the high quality micro-inverter system to convert to electricity. Energy will  be stored as it is converted.

Is solar roofing just for residential properties?

In addition to residential solar  roofing, we proudly install solar roofing on all commercial, office, retail and  industrial buildings.

How long can a solar roof last?

Solar panels can last anywhere  from 25-40 years with regularly scheduled maintenance from our solar roofing  technicians.

How will I know if my solar roofing is working?

Our microinverters provide solar  roof owners with a built-in monitoring system to display all productivity.

What if I don’t use all the energy converted?

Excess energy will be put back on the grid and turned into credits customers can redeem at another time. Customers may also choose to install a battery backup system to store unused energy.

Is my roof suitable for solar?

Solar roofing can be attainable  for most roofs. Our roofing technicians will visit your property to assess the  eligibility of your roof. Some repairs or services may be required before  installation to prepare for the solar panels.

Are the panels fragile?

We use solar panels that can  withstand all climates of the San Diego area.
