Should I lease or purchase a system?
Statistics have shown that it is more economical to purchase a system rather than lease one. If you lease, you will be required to make payments for at least 15 years, whereas if you purchase a system your payback period will be limited to just a few years. Also, when you purchase a system, you will receive a tax refund which may total $20,000.
Will Aikyum apply for HOA approval and permits, or do I have to do that myself?
We take care of it all! Even in affluent neighborhoods and with stubborn associations, we achieve success. In fact, we have a 100% success rate in getting HOA approvals.
What financing options do I have to pay for my solar system?
If you have trouble financing your solar system, we’ll offer advice on applying for a good loan. Aikyum doesn’t offer leases, though – the only party that wins in leasing is the solar company! Owning your system means YOU get the tax credit. And, the increase in your home value benefits YOU!
Does Aikyum offer monitoring for my system after installation?
Absolutely! Aikyum Solar offers daily monitoring of your system post-installation. If anything goes wrong, we’ll take care of it for you.
What is TOU (Time of Use) Rate Schedule?
Southern California Edison Time of Use Rate Schedule Explanation
By switching to solar, Southern California Edison will charge you at different rates at various times of the day. See this short video for a complete explanation.
When the main service panel is full of breakers, it is necessary to install a subpanel to add a solar PV breaker and an electric vehicle breaker. The ideal location would be directly behind the main service panel, or on each side of the main service panel.
The inverter converts the electricity produced by the solar panels into usable energy for the homeowner. The ideal location for the inverter would be outdoor with shading, or indoors. An AC disconnect installation may be required if the inverter is not directly beside the main service panel. If the inverter and main service panel are separated by any gate or obstacle, it is required to install a small AC disconnect for easy accessible to cut the power in emergency situations.
Ideal Conduit Run?
James Gerard, an experienced residential solar power installer, explains how Aikyum Solar takes special care to run the conduit properly in this short video. With extra effort, the stucco is stubbed out to install the conduit hidden, close to the wall of the house. In addition, Aikyum Solar not only paints the conduit run to match the wall and roof color, but also consults with the homeowner to get the best results possible. Customer satisfaction is our biggest priority.
