Our Mission

At RedFox Solar, we strive to find the best solar panel solutions on a per-customer basis. We’re not in the business of selling panels for the sake of making sales. Every house is different and therefore requires a custom solution designed specifically for it.

Solar power not only changes the way your home uses energy, but it also adds a sense of purpose that most other homes lack. Solar panels are a statement. They tell the world that you are part of the solution, pushing the rest of us to choose a more responsible, self-sufficient way to live our lives that benefits everyone. You’re limiting your carbon footprint and paving the way for future generations to enjoy the world as we do today.

Solar FAQ

The biggest advantage of having solar panels installed electric bill savings. Even on smaller installations, you’ll immediately begin paying less to your local utility company.

One of the most common questions prospective buyers ask is, “How much does a solar installation cost?” There isn’t a straightforward answer for every scenario as it depends on a number of factors such as:

• The size of your solar panel installation system.
• The location of your property.
• Whether you qualify for solar incentives and financing, which can vary from state to state, and year to year.

You pay absolutely nothing to receive a free estimate of your property. After requesting a quote, one of the solar installation contractors in our network will provide you with a no-obligation, on-site analysis of your home or business.

This analysis will cover:
• Solar installation costs
• Payback periods and ROIs
• Electricity bill savings
• Income generation potential
• Financing options
• Relevant tax incentives and rebates

Solar power, like wind and other renewable energy sources, reduces our dependency on fossil fuels currently contributing to our growing climate crisis. In urban and city areas, going green with solar means less pollutants in the air we breathe and in the water we drink.

Solar energy is free to anyone willing to harness it. Maybe it’s time you go green with home solar panels today!

Solar technology is scalable, meaning you can add as many panels as you want. And thus, the advantages of solar energy (i.e. electricity bill savings, income generation, property value increases) depend on how large a system you install. A better question is how low do you want your electricity bill to be?

Solar panel installers in our network can help you figure out the optimal amount of solar your home needs to be sufficient.  Just contact us, and we’ll send you a detailed proposal, free of charge!

Net metering is a system where utility companies credit home solar panel array owners for the excess electricity they produce, in the form of energy credits. This way, when your home needs energy from the utility grid (at night), your energy credits pay for it. Depending on your energy needs and the size of your solar panel array, you could always have more than enough credits to cover all electricity you don’t product yourself. Net metering policies vary from state to state, from Rhode Island to Florida, so make sure you look into this ahead of time, or speak with your solar rep.

Thanks to countless federal, state, and local incentives, affordable solar panels are within easy reach of millions of Americans. Gone are the days of having to take out a second mortgage or gouge into your savings to install a solar panel array (group of solar panels) your home or business.

However, the incentives you qualify for depend on which state you live in and on the size of your installation. For instance, Rhode Island offers certain solar rebate programs that are not available in neighboring states, like Massachusetts or Connecticut, and vice versa.

Cloudy days:
On cloudy days, your panels continue to generate energy as light is still coming through the clouds. However, since there is less sunlight available, solar energy production won’t be as efficient as it would be on clear, sunny days.

With rising electricity costs and current financial incentives, going solar is smart even if you live in a cloudy city.

Night time:
When the sun is out, solar power is being generated at a faster rate than most homes can use it. That excess power gets sent back to your local utility company and you receive energy credits. These credits are important as they will pay for home’s energy usage when solar is not available. This would include night time.

For night time energy use, you have 2 different options:
1. Store excess solar energy in batteries. When the sun goes down, you simply use these batteries to power your night time electricity needs. Batteries are not part of a typical solar system but they can be purchased and installed for backup.
2. Send excess solar electricity back thru the utility grid during the day and buy it back at night using energy credits you’ve earned. This is the more typical option.

By default, when you install solar panels on your property, you’ll still be connected to the main electricity grid. This allows you to draw energy from the utility company when your system is not producing enough power (at night time, etc). It also allows you to send power back to the grid when you produce more than you need.

It is possible to be set up off of the grid with a solar energy system that includes battery storage, but there are much higher costs in doing so. This may also be dependent on local and state laws.

Solar panel systems connected to the local utility grid will shut off in the event of a blackout. This is to prevent emergency responders and electricity utility repair-people from being injured by electricity being sent back towards the grid from your solar panels. However, there are certain inverters available for purchase that provide backup power in a blackout when paired with a battery.

In most cases: $0. Solar panels are created with durable materials, with the panels themselves being covered in tempered glass. So they will require little to no maintenance for the life of the system, which is generally about 25-35 years. Keeping the panels clean isn’t something you need to worry about either. In the even that something happens, or your equipment malfunctions, you should have a warranty on your system. Warranties do depend on the manufacturer, so make sure you are clear on all of that before making your purchase.
