Benefits of Renewable Energy

There are many benefits of solar energy. Renewable energy can increase building efficiency, lower costs, and preserve the environment for a better future. On-site renewable energy systems can be incorporated into new residential and commercial buildings or be added to existing buildings.

Renewable energy can take many forms. From windmills that feature prominently in a site design to unobtrusive solar panels that blend into the roof, there are many options to choose from. It can be used for energy production building-wide, to power specific projects or components of a building, to supplement electricity from traditional power companies, or to create a stand-alone energy source.

In addition to the cost savings from using more efficient and renewable forms of energy, many states and cities offer additional incentives for homes and businesses that use renewable energy. There are also tax deductions, credits, and other rewards available.

Installing renewable energy can not only save you money in decreased energy costs, but also add value to your home, store, school, or place of business. With every investment into energy savings or efficiency, the value of your property increases greatly, making it not only more pleasant and affordable while you use it, but also giving the added benefit of a higher sale price when it’s time to leave.

HedgeHog Electric has the knowledge and skill to help you find the right renewable energy solution for your situation. We will also work with your city and local officials to obtain the required permits and permissions to install and use the renewable energy.

Residential Installations

Most homeowners have had that shocking moment of opening their power bill and seeing an alarmingly high amount is due. Along with saving on your electricity bill, many people who opt to have solar panels installed on their homes want to be more eco-friendly and reduce their carbon footprint.

Whatever the reason you are looking to have a residential solar panel installation job performed, you can trust HedgeHog Electric to get the job done. Generally, a solar panel installation job for residential customers can take between 30-45 days, allowing you to start enjoying your renewable energy sooner.

We work with homeowners from the very start with a consultation about what you are hoping to achieve. Our team will also discuss the ideal placement of your panels based off of your preferences. So, if you don’t want your solar panels mounted on the roof, our residential electricians can install a ground mount solar system.

Also, you can also save more money with HedgeHog Electric rather than a national solar power installer. By working with your trusted local solar installer versus a national company, you can save more money.

Commercial Installations

Along with our residential solar panel installation services, HedgeHog Electric offers commercial solar panel installation services. Commercial facilities often have far higher energy needs than a homeowner, and businesses can greatly benefit from switching to solar power.

Depending on your business needs and the size of the installation project, our commercial solar installations can take between 45-180 days. You will be able to choose from roof-mounted panels, ground mount solar systems, or solar panels installed on a flat membrane roof with a ballasting system that offers zero penetration.


Here are some of the frequently asked solar panel installation questions we get, often before people come in for a consultation with our electricians.

How much power will my solar panels make?

The amount of power produced by your solar will depend on the size and number of solar panels you have installed, as well as factoring the light and cell efficiency. During your consultation, we will be able to provide you with more exact estimations as we discuss your solar system project.

How much does solar panel installation cost?

There are many factors involved in a solar panel installation project, from the number of panels to be installed to the type of installation needed. But you can rest assured that you will know the price of the whole project before any work begins so that there won’t be any surprises down the road.

Will my solar panels still work when it isn’t sunny?

Your solar panels just need the UV from the sun, which they can receive even on cloudy days. While direct light is better, your solar panels will still work on cloudy days.

Do I get tax breaks for switching to solar power?

Yes, there are tax breaks for both home and business owners who make the switch to solar power.
