Sunplanter: next generation solar homes
Our clients are talking
Dr D H. , Carmel, California
"We wanted solar. We've gotten bids from other companies, and when we started talking with Sunplanter, it wasn't your usual solar.
I liked the idea that their solar design was actually its own roof. rather than penetrating into the roof and making holes in the roof. By being its own roof in an integrated system, you can almost put it anywhere.
Together we worked with solving our problems, in a very creative way, and we came up with something which I think is very exciting; All sorts of innovative ideas, something that has not been done before.
But then on D Day, here it is, we are midway and we have already put in three big arrays., it happened in very quick order, literally in minutes."
L H., Carmel, California
" We are at the end of our solar installation and it turned out beautifully. I have to admit, I was a little nervous that I wouldn't like how it looked but we worked with Sunplanter for a long time to come up with a solution of putting the panels next to my roof and not on top of it when you drove in. And today, I realize that was a great decision. Very excited how quickly it went up. It has been a very interesting process because I didn't know anything about solar before. And it looks even better than I thought it would be. Sunplanter has this great waterproof technology and it was nice to be able to put the panles on the roof and not to have to reroof first. You can do it all at once."
Dr A F, Carmel, California
"With Sunplanter, our bill went from almost $7,500 per year to less than $300. We are expecting over $200,000 in return over the system's life.
We worked with Sunplanter architects to define the best location, size and design for the solar array on our house. The solar system is beautifully integrated in our wood shake roof.
Altough the solar roof is waterproof and ventilated, Sunplanter actually installed it in less than 1/2 hour"
Case study: investment and return
The benefits of investing in your own property
Homeowners get the best out of solar when they invest in their own solar system. Unfortunately, not everyone can afford it, but investing upfront in a Sunplanter system gives you very high financial returns.
Solar owners get a 30% tax credit on their investment.
Solar owners no longer pay power bills. They are protected against future rate hikes for at least 25 years.
Solar owners own their system, they are not leasing it. There is no lien and no constraint on their property.
Typical project in PG&E territory
In most cases, Sunplanter solar arrays are paid back in 4 to 7 years, which means homeowners then have 18, 20 or sometimes 30 years of free power.
Sunplanter will help you figuring out the financials of this investment. Most of the time, the IRR is very high (often between 25% and 40%).
The return depends on the rate, the solar potential (orientation, pitch, shading, etc) and the architectural modulation, if any. In many cases, the savings accumulated over 25 years will put your child through college.

Trouble free technologies
Waterproof solar arrays
Sunplanter solar arrays are waterproof. All too often, solar systems are attached to the roof with a lot of penetrations, which may leak over time. This does not happen with Sunplanter systems.
Sunplanter arrays have a built-in, very durable, waterproofing system. They are leak-free by design. Learn more.
Adapts to any type of roof
Sunplanter arrays can be tailored to almost any roof size, shape or material. Sunplanter arrays can be used on shingles, wood shakes, spanish tiles, metal, or almost any other material.
Sunplanter will work with you on every detail of the design. Sunplanter arrays are entirely customizable in size, location, performance and aspect. They can be customized to match your home's architecture, colors or material.
Arrays are ventilated
Sunplanter arrays have built-in ventilation. The panels naturally stay cool and efficient. The ventilation also ensures Sunplanter arrays do not overheat the roof.
Sunplanter arrays have a 10-year complete warranty and a 25-year minimum output warranty on the solar panels.
