Anyone who meets the challenge of creating a more sustainable future by installing solar energy for their home or business is a hero in our eyes.

Is it Better to Buy or Lease Solar Panels?

Is it Better to Buy or Lease Solar Panels?

Blog
When you're trying to decide whether it's better to buy or lease solar panels, the most important factor is your financial goals. Sure, both choices will allow you to access the same renewable energy from the sun. But, in most cases, it makes much more financial sense to buy solar panels. This could mean buying them outright or financing with a solar loan. Before diving into a comparison of buying vs leasing solar panels, it's important to note that MOXIE does not offer solar leases. Although we become rambunctiously ecstatic anytime anyone makes the switch to solar energy, we also feel that it's our responsibility to do more than just convince people to switch, but also, to help them make the best long-term financial decisions.

Is Solar Energy Reliable Enough for My Home or Business?

Is Solar Energy Reliable Enough for My Home or Business?

Blog
How reliable is solar energy? It's an important question for people considering the switch to solar because we live in a fast-paced, energy-dependent world. When it comes to your home or business, there is no time for power outages or lack of available power. Although it's a broad one, there are two main ways to look at this question – "resource reliability" and "production reliability". Resource reliability is about the availability of the energy source (sunshine) and its ability to regularly reach your panels. Production reliability is more about the ability to consistently turn that sunshine into usable electricity. This production mainly depends on the dependability of the solar system hardware (panels, inverters, wiring), as well as the quality of the solar energy installation. Of course, there must be a…

5 Factors that Affect Your Total Solar Panel Installation Cost

Blog
"How much does solar panel installation cost?" It's a question we hear all the time. The short answer is that it varies. There is no one size fits all approach to solar installation. The cost of your solar project will vary based on factors like: How many solar panels do you need to meet your energy/financial goals? Would you like your panels on a roof or on the ground? What type/brand of panels and inverters would you like? Do you want any addon options such as energy storage batteries or an electric vehicle charging station? What solar incentives (rebates, tax credits, renewable energy credits) are you eligible for? If you aren't sure about the answer to any or all of these questions, don't w
