How do I know if I’m a good candidate for NJ SOLAR POWER’S solar energy services?
If you want to save money on your electric bill and lock in your electricity costs for a minimum of 20 years, NJ Solar has the appropriate solution to fit your needs. Shading should be minimal, or you should be willing to trim or remove trees that may affect the solar system. Roof age should be no older than ten years. Ideal performance for Solar Systems includes Southern exposure between ESE and WSW. The panels can be mounted on flat surfaces as well as pitched. A “perfect” orientation for a solar system in New Jersey is approximately 192 degrees “true” (or 180 degrees magnetic”) and the tilt angle of approximately 37 degrees. As we move away from the “perfect” scenario, system performance may decrease slightly.

How do I know if my location receives enough solar energy to make electricity?
Solar energy can be turned into Solar Electricity almost anywhere in the world. How efficient your solar system will be is what matters. Efficiency is dependent upon multiple factors including shading, the orientation, and tilt angle of the system used to power your facility, the available area to install your system and of course, what your annually electric consumption is today. NJ Solar Power will provide you with a free site evaluation to help design the most efficient system for your property.
How do I know if my facilities are appropriate for a solar installation?
Appropriate facilities for solar include any and all of the following scenarios:
- If you have an area that has southern exposure.
- Little or no shading and you are willing to trim or remove trees.
- Your roof is no older than ten years, or you are willing to re-roof.
- You have a parking area that could handle canopies.

What types of solar panel configurations does NJ SOLAR POWER offer?
The configuration of the system will be dependent upon multiple factors. We offer roof, ground, and canopy solutions. Panels can be mounted on flat, tilted, parking structures, and will engineer our solution to come up with the optimal configuration for your property. Ideally, we will try to offset your utility’s electric bill by 100%. However, this may not always be possible based on the available space to mount the panels. NJ Solar Power will provide you with a free site evaluation to help design the most efficient system for your property.
What are the financial considerations with an NJ SOLAR POWER solution?
NJ Solar Power strives to give you the highest possible return on your investment. We offer multiple financing options to our customers based on what best fits their particular needs. The options include the ability to purchase a system or to purchase the power generated from the system owned by one of our financial partners.
How much does it cost to implement NJ SOLAR solutions?
NJ Solar Power offers multiple financial solutions which include a “zero” cost solar option, which means you pay nothing for the system, you just pay for the power produced by the system. We offer the ability to purchase all the power generated from the system for the next 20 years which results in substantial savings over your current electricity rates, and we offer the option to outright purchase the system which will result in a fixed cost per kWh over the life of the solar system. NJ Solar Power will provide you with a free site evaluation to help determine the best solar solution for your property.
What if I want just the equipment, not the services?
If you purchase a solar system from NJ Solar Power, we must do the installation. We do not sell retail or wholesale solar systems.
