Arma Solar - Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


1. Why is everybody going Solar?

Free System in NJ:

30% of the contract price is paid back to the customer as a Solar Federal Tax Credit. This can be claimed in the installation year and subsequent years.

The State Government pays $90 for every 1000 KWH produced. On average, homes claim $900-$2000 annually for 15 years. State incentives can cover 80-100% of the contract value.

Environmental Impact:

Each solar system is equivalent to planting hundreds of trees, reducing carbon emissions and combating climate change.

Tax Breaks:

Both state and federal governments provide tax breaks for adopting clean energy.

Roof Protection:

Solar systems protect the roof underneath.

Home Value:

Solar upgrades do not affect property taxes but increase home value. Solar investment yields 8-11% ROI over 25-30 years.

2. Why should I convert from my current grid-powered life to self-generated power through solar?

  • Dig a little deeper to know you are destroying the planet for that electricity at your home. It’s generally produced by burning coal, or natural gas or nuclear power.
  • There are renewable sources, tide power, wind power, and solar power. Only Solar power can be harnessed at your home all other renewable options are big and bulky and are location constrained.
  • When you produce your required power through Solar energy, you save the planet by offsetting 100’s of acres of forest-equivalent carbon footprint.

b. You still will need to remain connected to the grid for power at night or on cloudy days, but that’s very limited, unless you decide to go completely off-grid using battery backup.

The government wants you to move away from conventional grid-based electricity supply, they pay 30% in the form of a federal tax rebate and much more in the form of state incentives to motivate you.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast

f. With extremely attractive loan options and power purchase agreement (PPA) options, after all rebates and incentives, you really pay much less than what you pay for your electricity today.

Solar system installation will not increase your tax or insurance cost.

3. Educate me on the solar conversion process.

It’s simple for you, as all the back-end process is managed by Arma with a smile on behalf of you.


You need to sign the contract (Cash/ Loan/ PPA) and sign some permit forms.

Arma finalizes your custom solar system design, gets them signed and sealed by engineers and master electricians approved by your township, and then works with the governing bodies and gets all approval to install, and after installation, for inspection. Once inspected, Arma works with the same governing bodies, to receive approval to operate for the system, and then to get your system registered for state incentive programs.

Arma will work with you to file for your federal tax rebate, just like your state incentive program.

This entire end-to-end process depends on approvals from different organizations, thereby the end-to-end time varies from 45 days to 120 days. Arma’s target is to do have your system live in 60 days.

After the system is live, you will be moving to net metering with your utility company. Net metering allows you to get credit for your unused power sent to the grid. And you can draw from those credits in the night and in times when your solar system is not producing enough.

If you want to have a backup power option along with Solar for your home, Arma can install battery backup and generator backup with your system. These additional systems can be included just like your roof, in your solar system loan or PPA.

4. What happens if there are issues after the installation of my system?

Roof-mounted and ground-mounted solar systems have no moving parts unless you are getting a solar system that is ground-mounted and has mechanisms to move as per the sun path during the day, thereby there are very rare occurrences of failures in the solar system.

Moreover, the solar system components used by Arma are top-of-the-line kind, which means they have great performance warranties, up to 25 years, from the manufacturer.

Arma workmanship is covered for 25 years as well. You need to only call or text your assigned Arma representative.

The Arma system comes with a squirrel guard included with the system to avoid situations of the cable being eaten up by pests.

There may be situations of damage from environmental factors, for which you have insurance coverage. Please report the issue to Arma first so we can guide you better.

Arma has a published service cost sheet for various kinds of issues faced with systems. This service cost sheet is more for the systems not installed by Arma, where we are being asked to help with maintenance. For all systems installed by Arma, the intent will be to evaluate if there is any chance of the issue being covered without cost, only in exceptional circumstances, there will be charges invoiced to the customer, which they can probably claim almost all the time from their insurance company.

If you need to replace your roof because of damage to the non-solar planes, please get in touch with Arma, as we can remove and reinstall your system after the new roof. You can probably claim this cost for roof replacement including solar removal and reinstall from your insurance company.

5. What if I sell and move?

10. How do you choose to roof mount or ground mount a solar system for my home or business?

Roof mount systems are easier to get approval for from township and utility companies. However, approval is dependent on the health and type of the roof and the underlying structure.

  • Not all kinds of roofs can support solar panels; for instance, slate or stone roofs are costly to mount solar systems on. Historic homes may have structural limitations.
  • Older home structures, farm homes, and barns may require additional expenses to reinforce the underlying structure.

Ground mount system installation approval is dependent upon township guidance. Requirements vary from a minimum of 10 feet from the property line to 50 feet from the property line and from the home or business structure.

Ground mount systems have additional costs due to expensive trenching and land preparation costs for mounting. However, with bifacial panels and better orientation of panels to the sun path, the cost saved in the equipment may offset a major portion of the additional trenching and on-ground system mounting costs.

Options such as solar pergolas, solar carports, solar sheds, etc., may be approved by townships, but strict guidelines on the underlying structural needs apply.
