Unlike other installers who are focused only on the sales process, we look at your exact monthly electricity usage (rather than the average) to determine precisely what size system you need and give you an accurate indication of savings.

Residential solar panel users can offset a massive 100,000 lbs of carbon dioxide in 20 years; the same amount produced by driving your car 100,000 miles!

We offer solar panels from the best manufacturers in the business, including Silfab Solar, Panasonic, LG Solar, and more. The most common types of residential solar panels we use include:

Monocrystalline: A monocrystalline solar panel system uses pure silicon to absorb the sun’s energy. These high-end panels are incredibly effective, with sunny days yielding up to 20% energy efficiency, which refers to the amount of sunlight converted to energy rather than just warming the surface. Homeowners with smaller roofs typically choose monocrystalline panels.

Polycrystalline: Polycrystalline panels reach a slightly lower level of energy efficiency — around 15-17% — but they are more affordable. We tend to install polycrystalline panels on larger roofs where the slightly lower efficiency has minimal impact on the success of the system.

The costs of solar panel installation will vary by home because no two properties are the same and don’t use electricity the same way. If your home requires more electricity than the average home, you could need more panels to suit your needs.

Overall, we determine the cost of residential solar power by the size of your roof, the number of solar panels we need to use, and their type.

The majority of your solar panel expenses relate to the upfront costs of materials and installation. At 8MSolar, we offer high-end services that fit your budget.

If you need help meeting these upfront costs, we have several payment options available.

You may be concerned about the costs of buying and installing solar panels for your house, but don’t worry, we can make installing solar panels much more manageable for you. At 8MSolar, we offer two main payment options for solar panels for houses which are shown in the diagram below. Both options for home solar panels have their advantages, and the best option will depend on your individual circumstances. You may find it better to pay for the solar panels upfront, or prefer to spread the cost over a few monthly installments.

If you’re not sure which payment plan is best for you, our residential solar power experts can guide you. We will help you choose the best solar panels for your home and are here to support you throughout your solar power project.

Paying for your new solar system can be overwhelming, but local and federal tax incentives can help make the project more affordable. The current Federal Solar Tax Credit could save you 26% on the total cost of your solar project. On top of this credit, homeowners can save up to $6,000 with the Duke Energy Rebate Program.

There are two main technologies that convert the sun’s power into electricity.

Concentrating solar power (CSP) uses the sun’s energy to produce extremely large amounts of electricity. CSP works by using mirrors to focus sunlight and convert it into heat. 

Photovoltaics (PV) are the panels you’ve probably seen on rooftops in your neighborhood. These panels convert the sun’s light into electricity when the sun is shining. The panel’s cells soak up photons from the sunlight and as a result, electricity flows. Our residential solar experts can work with you to install state-of-the-art  PV panels to power your home.
