Home Solar System & Photovoltaic Solar Panel Installation
Photovoltaic Solar Panel Systems in Raleigh - Durham & Throughout NC
Solar photovoltaic systems produce electricity from the sun! Here’s how:
- A typical solar panel array is 16-24 solar panels mounted on the roof of your home, although solar panels may also be mounted on the ground, on a garage or on a barn
- The solar panels are wired together and collect direct current electricity from the sun
- The wires are connected to an inverter, which converts the direct current to alternating current, the kind used in your home!
Yes Solar Solutions sizes a solar PV system to meet your unique needs. We’ll start by looking at your monthly electricity usage, then at the available appropriate space on your home’s roof, and size a system to ensure optimal payback.
Systems may cost anywhere from $11,000 to $35,000 — but the NC state renewable energy tax credits of 35%, and 30% from the federal government combine to make your investment more like $5,200 to $18,000. So when it comes time to pay your taxes, instead of paying the federal and state government, you can use that money to reduce your dependence on the utility company! Utility rebates can reduce the cost even more.
In addition, your new home solar power system will create an income stream with the electricity you produce. With a 25-year guarantee on solar photovoltaic panels, the payback is better than ever.

Installation of a residential solar system in Raleigh, Durham, Wilmington and surrounding areas in North Carolina is relatively simple and in most instances can be completed in less than a week, following these steps:
- Racking: A typical residential installation begins with the installation of a racking system. The racking system is the framework that your solar modules are mounted to. At Yes, we install only the finest racking systems.
- Mount Solar Modules: Once racking is complete, solar panels are then mounted to the racking system and connected in series to each other.
- Connect to the Inverter: The entire array is connected to a junction box that leads to the system’s inverter, which converts DC power to AC power.
At Yes Solar Solutions, we install high quality inverters which offer high performance, efficiency and reliability, like SMA, SolarEdge, Fronius and Power One, and micro-inverters like Enphase. Optimizers are another option for individual solutions. Inverters are most often mounted on a wall in close proximity to your homes’ sub-panel and/or electric meter, with micro-inverters being mounted directly to the solar module. AC and DC disconnects are also part of the system and are installed to allow the flow of current to and from the inverter to be shut off if needed.
Yes Solar Solutions can also offer a range of additional options to guarantee the best solution for a homeowner, from single string inverters to micro-inverters to maximizers, that increase the output of the panels to a monitoring system that best fits your installation.
The Benefits of a North Carolina Home Solar Electricity System
A completed system will deliver many years of continual savings. All Yes Solar Solutions recommended solar modules carry limited production warranties of 25 years and inverters which offer a minimum of a 10 year manufacturer’s warranty. Yes Solar Solutions systems have a life expectancy of 25-30 years.
In addition to the benefits our state-of-the-art systems deliver, Yes Solar Solutions customers can count on being among the first to know as system enhancements and upgrades develop that yield even greater performance benefits.
