Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Systems
The first step in electrification and independence from the power grid is installing a highly rated solar photovoltaic (PV) system.
Solar panels on your roof take in the abundant California sun and, through an inverter, turn it into electricity to power your home. If the panels don't generate enough electricity for your home, the power grid is used as a backup source. If the panels generate too much energy, that energy is put into the power grid, and you get a credit on your bill.
Because you are reducing your dependence on the power grid, you are helping to eliminate CO2 generated from electricity-producing processes like natural gas and nuclear.
And because your home will be generating a significant amount of its own energy, you should see a drastic reduction in your monthly utility bill almost immediately.
What We Offer
At the installation time, we work closely with PG&E to connect your home with the main grid. This step is required to start seeing savings with your new system.
Not only do we focus primarily on warranty-backed panel products, but we also provide attractive panels with optimal performance, using minimal mounting hardware to make sure your home stays beautiful.
Electrical Panel Upgrades
We provide a close inspection of your existing sub and main panels to ensure smooth connections with your new solar PV system.
Our payment options include cash or financing to provide our clients with the best long-term investment.
Solar panels have two warranties: a performance warranty, which states how well your solar panels will perform over a given time, and an equipment warranty, which can protect your panels against equipment wear or environmental damage.
And with over ten years of experience installing solar panels, you can be assured that the professionals at Got Watts will get the job done right the first time.
30 Year Warranty
Got Watts offers top of the line warranties from SolarInsure. This warranty give you peace of mind in knowing that if something does go wrong, Got Watts has got you covered.
A 30 year warranty on panels, inverters, optimizers and racking.
If a leak in your roof is caused by the solar panel installation, it is covered for 30 years.
If you sell your home within the 30 years, you can transfer this warranty to the new home owner at no cost to either of you.

The Solar Estimate Process
Due to permitting issues, we must work directly with the property owner. If you rent your home or otherwise do not own your home, a good working relationship with the homeowner is critical.
PG&E Annual Usage
We request 12-24 months of your PG&E statements to establish your average energy usage. Use our easy-to-follow guide to get your statements.
We will pull necessary permits and go over any additional work that needs to be performed (main and/or subpanel upgrades) at the time of your estimate.
Solar Income Tax Credit
We'll review your eligibility for the Solar Income Tax Credit of 26% in 2021 or 2022. You can read more about the income tax credit from the United States Department of Energy.
Did you know?
Over a 28 year period, a solar photovoltaic system in your home could offset the production of 100 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To provide an accurate comparison, we'll need 12-24 months of your PG&E statements, your property's average energy usage, and whether or not you plan to finance or own your solar PV system.
For any new solar system to function, PG&E has to upgrade the meter attached to your residence. This process is handled by your solar contractor and, once completed, will ensure your new system functions properly.
Yes. Your solar cost projections should also include your 12-month settlement bill (true-up bill) that settles all credits and charges from PG&E. Any charges occur when your energy usage exceeds your panel's output.
No. The first reason is for the safety of PG&E crews. Solar PV systems are shut off during an outage to prevent workers from encountering live electrical currents that could result in electrocution.
The second reason is instability caused by the differing amount of energy collected by your panels could damage your home's electrical system. If your panels stayed on during an outage, this would result in damage to your appliances and possibly your electrical panels, as there would be no way to stabilize the solar energy produced.
Due to liability reasons, we do not offer this service.
