Switching To Solar Energy Won’t Slow Climate Change
Climate change is a huge issue and it’s easy to get discouraged as an individual trying to make green energy choices. It might seem like a small step, but switching to solar energy instead of using fossil fuels to power your home or business does make an impact. Learn More
Solar Panels Don’t Work In Northern Climates
We’re a solar energy company located in Northern Indiana, and that alone tells you that this myth isn’t true! Every property is different when it comes to hours of peak sun (on average, Indiana has 5), but even in the northern states, there is enough sunlight to easily power your home on a daily basis.

All Solar Systems Provide Backup Power
While many solar energy systems do have this feature, not all of them do! If storing energy to use in a power outage is a priority for you, you’ll want to consider a grid-tied system with a battery backup or an off-grid system. Learn More
Solar Panels Are Too Expensive
Solar energy systems are an investment, and the biggest hurdle most people face is the upfront cost of the system and solar panels. But that doesn’t mean the average person can’t make it work. There are so many incentives, loan options, and even solar leases available to make switching to solar more affordable. Learn More
Taking Care Of Solar Panels Is A Lot Of Work
Solar systems actually don’t require much maintenance or upkeep at all. Generally, all you need to do is keep the panels clean (maybe have them done professionally once a year), don’t scrape snow off them with a metal shovel (it can scratch them), and schedule annual inspections.
One of the big benefits of working with us at Advanced Solar is that we monitor every system, so you don’t have to worry about maintenance. Our team is alerted if there are any on-site issues and we can often troubleshoot without having to be on-site!
Solar Tax Incentives Are Over
This is a really common misunderstanding, as prior to this year there was a schedule for tax incentives to dramatically reduce and eventually go away. However, in August, the new solar tax credit has been extended all the way through 2032 and is part of the Inflation Reduction Act! Learn More
