Solar Panel Installations in the Greater Sacramento Area
Connected Technology does solar a little differently than most.
We are not a “high volume” production company. We listen to you, our customer, and design a system that exactly fits your needs. Our consultants take the time and help you make the best decision on the brand, type, and location of the solar modules (commonly known as solar panels). Our customers have been thrilled with the results.
Many companies claim that they have “the best modules,” but what they usually mean is that they have the most expensive modules. These are modules that produce the most electricity per panel.
We have found that the best value for our customers is not the highest producing, most expensive module, but one that combines both high production and solid warranties at a reasonable price.
As this technology has improved, prices on modules have dropped. Solar is now less expensive with a quicker return on investment than most people think; usually 5 to 7 years. However, this drop is slowing and now is an excellent time to buy.
Solar Panel Installations With Whole House Battery Storage
With the shift in our utility bills to time of day and peak demand pricing, whole-house battery storage should be an important consideration as it will save lots of energy dollars for you down the road. All of our systems are pre-planned with battery storage in mind so that when the right battery product is ready, our customers will be able to receive the most benefit.
Get Federal Tax Credits
The average savings is nearly $9,000.
You claim the investment tax credit for solar when you file your yearly federal tax return. Remember to consult with your tax expert. If you do your own taxes, simply complete IRS Form 5695, “Residential Energy Credits,” and include your results on IRS Schedule 3/Form 1040.
About Solar Panel Ownership
Many companies lease modules or provide a fixed rate for electricity that you buy from them. The benefit is that they don’t usually require you to pay them upfront for the panels, as you just pay as you go. But, the downside is that you don’t own the system installed on your home. You don’t get the increase in home value and it can be difficult to transfer if you sell your home. It would be similar to trying to sell a car that you have leased from another company! At Connected Technology, the system is yours, supported by us, for long-term, hassle-free benefits.

Solar Panel Maintenance
Solar is an investment and it needs to be maintained to continue getting great results, year after year. Cleaning dust and debris off of your solar panels will increase their efficiency and help you get the most out of your investment. If you already have solar panels and need yours cleaned, we recommend our friends at Lighthouse Window Cleaning.
