Why Solar energy

How can Solar Help

Solar contractor Los Angeles - NRG UPGRADE

Dying Resources

If you haven’t been paying attention, you may be wondering why there is all this noise on the topic. To understand that, you have to understand the resources that we use now and their limitations. Oil, coal and natural gas play a big role in our world, powering most of it. They are a reliable source of energy that we have been using like it will never disappear. The truth is not only are they becoming a scarce resource, but they are a significant cause of the pollution we have today.

Pollution

It has been a widespread realization that not only have we been hurting the environment with the excavation for these resources but also with the use of them. The creation of greenhouse gas emissions, erosion of the ground from fracking sites, pollution of water supplies, and air pollution from industrial plants to process them.

Burning

The burning of fossil fuels release nitrogen oxides into the atmosphere which corresponds to smog and acid rain. Things like industrial operations, coal-fired power plants, ships and airplanes, and of course cars and trucks are major contributors to nitrogen oxide emissions. Natural gas is called ‘clean’ because it emits less carbon dioxide than burning coal does. However, natural gas isn’t so much clean as it is a cleaner option. Natural gas is still a fossil fuel, which means it eventually will be depleted as well.

Fracking

Fracking is the procedure of drilling into the earth and injecting a high-pressure water mixture into shale rocks to force open existing fissures to extract oil or gas. Fracking allows for access to otherwise difficult to reach deposits of oil and gas. The use of fracking has caused many environmental disputes. The process uses huge amounts of water being transported to the fracking sites and the chemicals mixed with the water may escape and contaminate groundwater around the site. Fracking also increases the potential for oil spills which can harm the surrounding areas. There are also concerns that the use of fracking can cause small earth tremors. The belief is that the buildup of stress from injecting fluid deep underground can produce these tremors.

Cost

It has been a widespread realization that not only have we been hurting the environment with the excavation for these resources but also with the use of them. The creation of greenhouse gas emissions, erosion of the ground from fracking sites, pollution of water supplies, and air pollution from industrial plants to process them.

Solution

More research was conducted trying to find a greener solution and a more renewable source to draw from before it was too late. Many people are unaware that the first solar collector was made in the 19th century, consisting of copper coils connected to an insulated box. This is a similar style to solar panels created today. Technology advances have grown from the early research to create a way to harness the sun’s power providing a clean energy that can be used to power many items we use on the daily. Solar energy has been used to power airplanes, cars, and houses. As research continues and solar panels are being created, NRG Upgrade opens up  possibilities that will benefit us for the long haul on our environment, health, and pocketbooks.

NRG Upgrade invests in that future by providing solar solutions to the public, educating people on the benefits, and providing great customer service and dedication throughout the entire process. We work with Los Angeles area to install solar systems on homes, cutting the cost of high electric bills, and investing in ourselves to be less dependant on fossil fuel. Give our team a call to discuss how solar works. We will go over the facts, the process, what to expect, financing options, and all the benefits you will reap.

Is Solar Right For Me?

Homeowners With Solar Panles Say

I got excellent service from these guys, they went above and beyond to answer all of my questions and get my mother's home installed with solar. They are about to save her $$$$ every year, installing solar was worth every penny! Who wouldn’t want to save tons every year on their electrical bill? Also, it is even better when it's with a great company like NRG. They were so neat when doing the job and very knowledgeable about their work they were providing. My mom is also very satisfied with this company and I am glad I got to find them, I already scheduled them to come out to my own property end of November because I am ready to get solar installment and save as well. This company deserves more than 5 stars, amazing !

I am very much impressed with this company. I am so glad I went with them and there is many reasons why I did. After researching several solar companies, NRG Upgrade was superior in many ways: the materials used, guarantee, and the fact that everything is done in-house (sales, design, engineering, and installation). They were constantly in contact with me throughout the whole process which made me feel comfortable and more confident in the company. There is nothing better than customer service like this. Communicative and professional. They did an outstanding job installing solar panels on my roof. I would definitely recommend this company with full confidence to my family, friends, and whomever is reading this review!

Thanks to NRG I can now save money every month because I got the team to install the solar panels in my house. I wasn’t sure which company I should with at first because the few quotes I have gotten weren’t too far from each other in the price range. But, I can proudly say I made the right decision by going with NRG solar. They finished the job quicker than expected and they were delicate with my home while still doing a proper job. I went with them because they gave me more customer service and more information in this work which made me feel 100x comfortable in a company.

After researching for a company to use for my solar installation, I came across NRG Upgrade. At first, I was recommended to contact them by a close friend of mine but I still wanted to do my own research, I am very specific with the type of work I am expecting so I came onto the yelp account for NRG Upgrade and browsed through the reviews, the pictures of their work and mainly to see what people had to say about their customer service and the way they provide the work. I was satisfied with what I found on the internet and was hoping they would provide me the same great job as all of the customers that wrote about their satisfaction with this company. I went ahead and called them, already I had a great experience on the phone with the office as they were very detailed and specific with pricing and how they would go about this job. They sent someone out the next day to come take a look since I am picky and needed an estimator to check the home out before starting the job so I can get an accurate price without any surprises and just get to know him to judge the company.I really enjoyed meeting the estimator, he was very informative and told me exactly what needs to be done. He made me feel comfortable about going through with their company so I did. I am so glad I did, they are truly a great team and take their time to perfect as much as they could. I am now recommending them to my family and friends, and whomever else that needs solar work.

Very pleased with the work NRG provided at my mother’s house. She’s been telling me to find her a great solar company for months and I just have not had time. I finally got some time and spent it on the web finding a company for solar. I suggest getting solar ASAP, I should have started my search when my mother mentioned it months ago. It would have saved her so much money every month. It is definitely worth your while and is better for the environment. She now influenced me to use NRG Upgrade in my home and my parents-in-law’s home as well. It should be standard in all homes! This is a great investment.

I was referred by my neighbor to call this company for the solar work I needed in my home. I cannot thank my neighbor for the recommendation and Nrg Upgrade for their great work and effort in the services they have provided in my home. They did an excellent job putting up the panels safely and professionally. It is definitely worth every penny, because you save some money in the end. They were very clean, on time, and organized. They gave me a very detailed estimate on the work that they would be providing before I approved of the work. Thank you to the NRG Upgrade Solar Team, you guys truly rock!

I decided to consult a professional in the industry once I decided I wanted to know more about solar. I called NRG Upgrade and asked them to do a free consultation for me. They accommodated me, scheduled me in and explained everything about solar from beginning to end. They didn’t seem to leave out one thing! It was great. I felt comfortable with them given the fact that they know so much information on their work and what they can do with us. On top of that, they go over the whole plan, while explaining to you the reduced cost of your monthly payments. Best decision I have made in 2018!

NRG installed solar panels on our house and I couldn’t be happier with the results! The crew exceeded our expectations and made sure to keep us up to date with project plans. They arrived to our home on time and everyone we came in contact with was extremely professional and helpful. I definitely recommend NRG if you plan on installing solar panels on your home.

Thank god for NRG Upgrade! I worked with NRG Upgrade recently, about a couple of months ago to be exact. I wanted them to install solar panels on one of my investment properties. Out of all of the companies, NRG Upgrade was the most professional and within my price range. I have used them before for my house, but looked into other places this time around and realized that NRG Upgrade treated me great and they were and still are the best out there. We also added energy saving windows to the house since it is within the Los Angeles area. Happy with it all!

NRG Upgrade recently did my solar panel installation. It was important for me to not have it visible because I don’t really like the look. They were able to accomplish this as well as do as they promised all throughout my experience with them. There’s so many solar companies out there, it’s very hard to figure out who to use. I personally would recommend NRG If you’re in the market to go solar

So happy we finally did this! I have to admit I was a little skeptical at first.... We got the solar panels installed and it’s been a few months now and I’m so happy we did it. The crew did a great job and finished within the time frame they promised. I’ve been telling all my friends and family to do it as well because it almost gives you a fixed rate for your electricity. Since it’s only my husband and I, our panels provide more energy than we actually use so I don’t have any additional electricity payment to make. Best decision we’ve made in a long time!

For months I’ve been looking for the right company to invest in for solar panels. I realized that I might be investing a lot now, but later on it would be a great investment. NRG Upgrade recently installed solars in my best friends house, so i decided to take on the same investment. The job only took around a week, which was great given my busy schedule. Everyone that I have met within the team was always professional, honest, quick and reliable. I loved everything about them. I can’t wait to see how much money I can now save.

NRG upgrades ended up installing our solar panels and we are very satisfied with the work they put forth. They were professional and organized from the very beginning all the way till the very end. Punctuality is very important to me and not only were they always on time but they completed the work within budget and ahead of schedule. That’s really all I could ask for when it comes to a construction company. I highly recommend themIf you are looking to go the solar panel upgrade route.

NRG did a great job working on my parents investment property. Going solar with the right company can be tough but thanks to these guys I was very satisfied with the overall experience. They stuck to their time frame and finished within budget.. Of course start up cost is an investment but you will be very haopy you did down the line. going solar you take into consideration all the upfront costs. So ultimately by choosing to rely on NRG, their communication and their commitment won me over as they were easy to deal with and made sure all the paperwork and requirements were handled like a charm.

Recently I’ve been getting serious about having solar installation done in my home. I had a few different companies come out and give me an estimate. The price range on the work was more or less the same and it came down to which company I thought would do the most professional job. I’m happy to report NRG Upgrades lived up to their great reputation. If you are looking for solar panel installation definitely go with them!

We contacted NRG UPGRADE to install solar panels on our roof. They were knowledgeable, thorough, and highly competent. They assisted us in our applications for both a grant and loan to make the project affordable. Asaf and Daniel were very helpful as the project moved to completion. Our new solar system is now on and generating solar power to improve our environment and save on our electric bills. We highly recommend them to anyone thinking of going solar energy system in the Los Angeles area.

Our Solar System was installed in late June 2017 for our home in Los Angeles. Installers were professional and fast and I was completely satisfied. The solar system has worked perfectly and is properly sized for our energy needs. Most months we pay the required minimum to cover the base meter fee and the taxes. On an annual basis, we produce more energy for the grid than we consume from the grid. We also replaced our roof so it will support our new solar system, the process was fast and clean, the price was fair and they kept their word.Thank you NRG UPGRADE for the best experience.

II am very impressed with this company.  I researched solar companies and got a couple of estimates.  NRG UPGRADE gave me a great price, but also, importantly, they were terrific to deal with.  My sales person, Ace b, explained everything clearly, and was very patient when I asked him to repeat things.  The process begins with an appraisal of your situation - how many panels will you need, does your roof get sufficient sun, how many panels will fit in the sunny parts of your roof, etc.  After that, you sign the contract.  They then take care of EVERYTHING.  They deal with the city and the utility company through the permitting and inspections.  Their customer service is remarkable.  Ace responded to every question promptly and cheerfully.  He didn't even mind re-sending e-mails that I lost.  I felt completely taken care of.  Once the installation was complete, they got the utility company to get us up and running within a week.  Fantastic! The cost of our project was just about $30,000.  My wife and I decided to do this now because the tax deductions may go away at the end of this year.  We are very glad that we went with NRG UPGRADE.  They get our highest recommendation.

We went solar a few weeks ago, NRG upgrade installed the panels on our roof and we had a great experience with them. They informed us as they moved along what was happening. They took care of all the permits and authorizations and we only had to deal with them. They were very nice, accommodating and professional. The job was done like predicted and we really saw an immediate decrease in our bills. I am very satisfied with the outcome and would deff recommend hiring those guys. They did a great job for us and I heard not everyone is that lucky.

I started looking into solar energy after my father-in-law had a system installed in his house. Although they had another company do the install I was a little picky and sought out someone else for my needs. After an exhausting research on the internet and reading the numerous reviews on Yelp and other websites, I narrowed it down to three companies and scheduled appointments. After receiving quotes I decided to go with Nrg upgrade. I received a lower quote from another company which Nrg upgrade easily matched. Daniel was my consultant and I found him to be very professional at the same time knowledgeable about the product he was presenting. Absolutely no pressure during our meeting and when it was all said and done he shaked my hand and assured me I picked the right company. Before leaving he purchased several raffle tickets from my 12-year daughter who was selling them for her soccer team. Daniel you are a class act ! The crew that came out on the day of installation was equally professional as Daniel and extremely polite when asking them if they could re-route some conduit so it would be out of view. I hate the sight of cables, etc and anything they could do to minimise it would be great in which they did. Overall the process was painless and I wouldn't hesitate for a minute to recommend this company.  In closing I want to thank the entire staff at Nrg upgrade with their customer service and being prompt with returning phone calls, text messages and emails. You made this experience pleasurable and without incident.Many thanks !!!

NRG UPGRADE delivered! Customer service team is friendly and knowledgable. Installers show up on time and do clean work that easily passes city inspection. Should something go wrong they go above and beyond to correct it. Highlights from the work done on my house:When the panels in our contract were out-of-stock by the manufacturer, they offered to install upgraded, more efficient panels at no additional charge to move the project along in the time promised. They handled everything from A-Z including coordinating with the city to upgrade my electrical service, upgrading and moving my electrical panel and filing for city rebate.I tracked the project using their online management software that allows you to follow the progress of your project step by step and download any docs you may need. Since buying a home I've had mostly bad experiences working with contractors, but this whole project was refreshingly smooth. I'm sure I annoyed them with my calls following up with every detail, but there really wasn't any need to. These guys are pros and I would gladly recommend their services to my family and friends.Thanks to Ace,daniel and your whole crew. The panels are producing as promised and now powering my electric car 🙂

I was skeptical about the whole solar panels thing, wasn't sure it actually works or if it's even for me. Since I heard good things about it I decided to consult a professional. I came across NRG upgrade and I requested a free consultation thinking it was a mistake since those guys always try to sell stuff and there is no such thing as Free consultation. But then Asaf came to my house and sat with me for two hours explaining to me the science behind the solar revolution he then went to look at my electricity usage and suggested a plan that would work for me I asked why not add additional products he said I shouldn't go overboard. He then left and told meTo think about it.I consulted my husband and called asaf. He sat for another 2 hours explaining to my husband what is solar and how it can save us money every month. We booked the installation and asaf guided through every step of the way, three weeks later we officially went solar.By far the best decision I ever made, I always thought of myself as environmentalist but now I was actually reducing my carbon footprint In this world couldn't be happier to see my utility bills go from very high to Almost nothing and honestly my roof looks amazing!! Asaf is deff your guy if you want to go solar and trust me you want to go solar.

Solar Services By NRG Upgrade

NRG Upgrade is proud to offer the Los Angeles communities with a renewable energy source that helps reduce your utility electric bill, help raise the value of your home, and lead the world into a greener, cleaner environment by lessening your carbon footprint. By going with NRG Upgrade and installing a solar system, we are leading the community, state, and the world into a brighter future for ourselves and generations beyond.

Our Process:

The NRG Upgrade process is made to be simple and guide you through the ins and outs of the solar world. Our professional and friendly team members will be there to answer any questions you may have and give you all the information you will need to make a decision that will benefit your home and family.

Step 1

Give NRG Upgrade a call! We will schedule you for a free consultation.

Step 2

A consultant will do an in house presentation to go over the details, options available to you, what to expect, and how we can save you money. After you have decided which options are best for you and your home, you’ll sign the agreement and the ball starts rolling. On a cash deal, the customer will pay 10% of balance upon signing.

Step 3

The day after signing the agreement, NRG Upgrade will send a crew for a site inspection. They will take final measurements and determine if there are any shading issues to address. That is also when they will determine where the panels will be placed, optimisers, inverters, and how to connect to the electrical panel.

Step 4

In roughly two days, the engineer will finish with the plans for the homeowner to review and sign. If there is an HOA, the homeowner will also have to get the HOA to sign off on the plans.

Step 5

After the plans have been reviewed and signed, NRG Upgrade will send the plans to the city to get the proper permits. Depending on the city, this could take a few weeks. The biggest hold-up in getting the project done tends to be with obtaining the permits and the final inspection. NRG Upgrade also submits an application to the utility company for them to review and determine net metering eligibility.

Step 6

Once the permits are received from the city, the materials for the installation are delivered to your home. On a cash deal, 60% of balance is paid upon delivery of the materials/installation. Actual installation only takes 1-2 days, depending on the number of panels and type of roof. Once the installation is completed, the customer sends as-built documents pertaining to their system and the electrical permits for their utility company to review. If everything is in place, an interconnection agreement is executed with the customer.

Step 7

A final inspection must be done to have the work approved, which usually take about a week to order and have completed. On a cash deal, upon final inspection 20% of balance is paid. At this time if an agreement with the utility company was executed, the utility company will install a net meter and will issue PTO (permission to operate). You are now officially part of the solar community and it is time to celebrate!

Step 8

If it is included in the system you purchased, NRG Upgrade will set up the remote monitoring (WiFi internet is required for this) and NRG Upgrade will do a performance test. On a cash deal, the final 10% of balance will be collected at this point.

Things To Consider Before Getting Solar Panels

With all major projects, there can be hiccups in the flow. In solar projects, this can be the time it takes for the HOA to sign off on the project or the city to get the permits back to NRG Update. Here at NRG Update, we go to bat for our customers to make the process as flawless and smooth as possible. We will also keep the lines of communication open so you always know where you are in the process.

When the site inspection is done the the NRG Upgrade team, they may discover that your roof does not have the integrity needed to withstand the load of solar panels. A re-roofing may be required before we can move forward. NRG Upgrade offers a re-roofing service and provides the customer with the ability to bundle the solar project with the roofing project. NRG Upgrade only installs Owens Corning Cool Roof, which is considered top in the market with a 50 year warranty and helps keep the interior of the house cool.

Another potential hiccup that may stop the process all together are limited space for panels or shading issues. If there is not enough space or enough sunlight to make a solar system make sense for you, we may have to stop the project. While this is certainly disappointing, NRG Upgrade offers other energy efficient services to help you save money on your electric bill. We are happy to explore other options with you to reduce energy needs in the home.

FAQ

When connecting the solar system wiring from the AC switches to the main electric panel, the panel has to sustain a large enough load to carry the additional electrical load of the panels and must have the physical capability to include more breakers. The existing panel may need to be reconfigured or upgraded to accommodate these requirements.

The length of the process will depend on a few variables. How big the project is, how long it takes to get the permits, if there is an HOA,  and how long it takes to have the inspection done. Typically, the installation itself only days 1-3 days depending on the number of panels and type of roof. The longest part is usually waiting on the city permits. However, normal length from signing the agreement to PTO (permission to operate) can be 2-8 weeks.

While having a solar system that offsets all of your electrical needs would be nice, the system does not need to provide all of the electricity you need to be of great value. It may be that your roof cannot sustain a larger sized system due to space or shading. A small system that displaces a quarter to a half of your electrical demands will help reduce your electric bill. NRG Update is happy to discuss a system that supplies 100% of your energy needs if space allows, but making your home more energy efficient generally is the most cost-effective approach to home solar power.

Solar systems are made to be durable, with little to no maintenance required. Rain will keep the panels clean, or NRG Update can provide a cleaning service for you.

Because there are no moving parts in the solar panels, they can last anywhere to 20-30 years. Inverters may need replacing every 10-15 years. Batteries may need replacing every 5-10 years.

NRG Update offers a 25 year warranty on our solar panels, providing the best equipment in the solar industry. To top it off, our systems have the lowest depreciation rate of 0.5-.7% a year. Inverters also come with a 25 year warranty depending on the product, and our workmanship is also a 25 year warranty.
