Residential Solar Power

You own your home. Why are you renting your energy? Generate your own energy rather than giving your money to a utility. During the day any solar power generated by your system that is not used within your home is routed to the utility grid for credit with the utility. When your solar power system sends excess power to the utility your meter actually spins “backwards” which generates credits on your account. As a solar power owner you will be considered a “customer generator” by the utility and the utility is required, by law, to purchase any excess solar power your system produces until your bill is eliminated.

The cost of a solar power system is a fraction of what you will pay the utility over the years. Currently, you are throwing money away by sending the utility a check month after month, year after year. Each year, each season, utility rates increase. Stop the cycle. Install a solar power system and free yourself from burdensome electricity bills. Turn your electricity into an asset, rather than a liability.

Capture State Rebates Before they Are Gone

Solar Power systems are eligible for rebate checks from the California Solar Initiative. Rebates from the CSI program cover about 15% of the cost of your system. To learn more about rebates, click here.

Increase Your Property Value

According to the Appraisal Journal, any improvement to a home that saves money on electricity expenditures increases property value by a ratio of 20:1. This means every dollar saved on electricity expenditures on an annual basis increases your property value by $20. So, if you save $1000 a year on electricity expenditures with your solar power system, your property value will increase by $20,000. Sound too good to be true? Well, think of it like this: You have the option of purchasing two homes, one that has no electric bill or one that will cost thousands per year to live in. The choice is simple. Also, according to the State Law, any increase in property value due to your solar power system is exempt from property taxes. You can’t lose with solar power.

Help the Environment

Every time a light bulb is turned on, a hairdryer is run, an air conditioner kicks on, or a computer is in operation your utility is burning natural gas, oil, coal, or creating radioactive waste to generate the power needed. These sources of energy have damaged our environment by clouding our skies, warming the planet, and polluting our waterways. Our current means of generating energy is antiquated and needs to be scraped. Every solar power system installed helps us break this cycle of use and pollute. A solar power system generates power by converting sunlight into electricity. There are no emissions or pollution. Solar is clean, reliable, renewable energy. Help break the cycle. Help free us from fossil fuels.

Help our Country

Our country has become dependent on fossil fuels to generate electricity. This dependency has caused us great difficulties over the years and will continue to do so in the years to come if we do not change our ways. Be part of the solution. By installing a solar power system you will be doing your part to reduce the stranglehold fossil fuels have on our country. Declare energy independence with Sullivan Solar Power.

How Can Solar Work For You?

Where can I find someone to put in backup, off grid solar for my well?

Hello Cara, thank you for contacting Sullivan Solar Power. We appreciate your interest in going solar and would love to provide you with a custom proposal for your home or business. Without knowing what your electrical usage is, it would be difficult to provide you with a kWh rate at this time since we don't know what size system you would need or what equipment would be best for your home. We'd also need to confirm if this is a residential or commercial solar project. Please contact us at 1-800-SULLIVAN and we can provide you with a free site evaluation and proposal for your solar project. Thank you.

What is your rate per kwh for A fee only system?


Sunday, January 18, 2015

I have a barn on our property, and would prefer that the solar system be installed on the roof there. The main electrical service panels are in the home, about 70 yards away from the barn, although the barn does have electric power/lighting, etc. Is installation on the barn roof an option without incurring much extra/unnecessary cost?

Pete C, we would not be able to give you a detailed estimate without coming out to your home but if you are looking for preliminary numbers, we can provide a rough quote over the phone. For our estimates, our Project Developers put together a very comprehensive proposal for you, which includes data from the shade readings taken from your roof. Without the site assessment portion of the estimate, we would not be providing you complete data and information to help you make an informed decision on the feasibility and cost of a photo voltaic system. If you would like we can contact you and set up a time to have an in home meeting and a brief discussion about your proposed solar project.

Hi Mark, Not sure I understand as the post right under yours is us responding to someone's question. We respond to almost everyone's post throughout this website. If we don't respond, it's usually because we feel a reply from another website visitor is more appropriate. We want to encourage conversation, not just a question/answer forum. Thanks!

Thank you Kathleen! Comments like this are very valuable to us – we try to provide the most informative website possible, but some things fall through the cracks. We will fix this problem. In the meantime, the best method of getting this information is to call us and ask one of our team members. I realize this is not your first choice in a method of contact, but hopefully will get you by until we update the website. Thanks! Sullivan Solar Power

Dear Sullivan- Do you realize no email addresses are available under "Contact Us" for potential customers to use to find out basic information such as install of Off-Grid Solar? It looks like a previous comment was alluding to battery back ups (for emergency) back in April but I could not find any information on your website as to whether or not this is something your company does. I look forward to hearing from someone at Sullivan via email. Thanks!


Tuesday, July 08, 2014

Dear Sullivan: How many micro inverters have you installed compared to non-micro inverters? Also of the micro inverters how many of them have you done with battery back ups to be almost off the grid? Thanks, jim
