Residential solar systems are eligible for a rebate of up to 80% of the total system cost based on the system-specific design factor.
Please contact Bayou Solar to learn more about solar rebates in your area. Solar systems are also property tax exempt. They do increase the value of your property to potential buyers, but they legally cannot increase your property tax. Read about our installation process below.
Step 1 – Free Solar Consultation
We will conduct a free site visit to your home to assess available space for solar and analyze your energy usage. We will use this information to create a customized solar proposal.
Step 2 – Proposal and Financing
We will propose a solar system based on energy usage and available space to maximize the value of solar. In the proposal, we will determine the cost of the system, how the system will be paid for, and the return on investment.
Step 3 – System Design and Permits
As a turn-key solar service provider, Bayou Solar takes care of everything for you. We use North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioner (NABCEP) certified designers for your solar system design. All system designs comply with the National Electric Code and abide by local rules and regulations. Upon review, modification, and approval of your system design, all construction permits will be obtained and the Solar equipment will be delivered, and one of our Energy Project Managers will be assigned to your project.
Step 4 – System Installation
Upon arrival of the solar panels and parts, our professional crew will begin installing your solar system. Our crews arrive each day and work in a respectful and courteous manner. They will leave the site clean each evening.
A typical installation will take 1-3 days depending on size and complexity.
Residential solar power systems are typically roof mounted. The solar power panels are mounted on a racking system which is attached to the roof; however we can build customer structures when needed to maximize your solar installation.
Step 5 – Warranty/Rebates System Monitoring
Upon completion of your solar system, you will receive a “Warranty Package” that consists of system drawings, warranty information, self-maintenance instructions, product specifications, and instructions on how to inspect your solar system for optimal energy generation. You will have a 10 year labor and service warranty and a 25 year production guarantee on Solar PV. Also a “CPA Package” to assist you in receiving your rebates.
You’re never alone. Bayou Solar will be available 24/7 to support your system’s ongoing operation, address post installation concerns, and help analyze your system’s performance throughout the warranty period. By request, you may add an optional indoor monitoring system that allows you to see exactly how much power your system is generating in real-time, including how much power it has produced over the past week, month, or year, without having to walk outside and look at your inverter/meter.
