Frequently Asked Electrician Questions

Here are the questions we most commonly receive as electricians. If something is still unclear, get in touch with us at (604) 262-6919.

Does solar guarantee power during outages?

To have backup power during outages, a battery solution is required. Ready Solar specializes in battery backup solutions; feel free to inquire for more details. Solar systems installed alone are designed to shut down with the grid for safety reasons.

How long do solar panels last?

Solar modules typically come with warranties lasting 25 to 30 years and often outlast the lifespan of your roof. While they do experience deterioration of 0.35 to 0.55 percent annually, factors such as weather, age, and erosion are considered in our production/payback analysis.

What if I need to change my roof?

If a roof replacement is anticipated within the next 15 years, Ready Solar will dismantle the solar modules at no cost. However, reinstalling will incur regular installation charges, accounting for la,bor costs at the time, and may include parts such as new footings depending on the type of system installed.

Will my system be installed with wires all over my roof?

Ready Solar prioritizes best practices in solar installation. Wires will not be installed over hips, ridges, or valleys unless absolutely necessary using conduit or other approved methods.
