Frequently Asked Questions
Will a MyGen solar power system work at my home?
If your roof or some other area on your property has a southern exposure which is unshaded from about 9 or 9:30 a.m. until 4 or 4:30 p.m., then a MyGen system will work for you.
Not at all. MyGen solar power systems come with appropriate mounting hardware for composition (asphalt) shingle, flat concrete tiles, mission or Spanish tile roofs and even slate roofs. Experienced PV installers will use roofing techniques that eliminate the potential for leaks.
With a Kyocera MyGen grid-intertied solar electric system, you will draw electricity from your local utility at night, as you do now. In essence you are storing the extra electricity you produce in the utility grid. If power outages are common in your area you may want to ask a solar technician at Wholesale Solar to recommend a small battery backup system to power emergency loads when the grid goes down.
Kyocera MyGen solar power systems are virtually maintenance free. 20-year warranties on the solar panels indicate our confidence in the long life of solar panels.
Kyocera solar panels pass rigorous testing for hail and wind impact. They are tested for their ability to withstand dramatic temperature changes, humidity cycling and thermal shock.
The size of your system will depend on how much of your electricity need you want provided by clean solar energy. A small MyGen solar power system might meet only 10% of your electrical needs to begin with, but panels and inverters can be added when you are ready to expand.
A larger system could handle from half to all of your needs.

A Kyocera MyGen solar power system provides you with clean electricity unlike the electricity that is produced from conventional energy sources such as oil, gas coal, and nuclear power. Each of those sources produces greenhouse gases or radioactive waste, which are incredibly difficult to dispose of.
But ALSO, you will have the financial stability of energy price once you have purchased and installed your MyGen system. For the part of the electricity your MyGen solar power system provides, you will not have price increases for the life of the system.
