Solar 101

Save money on your PG&E bill while doing good for the environment.  Affordable Solar solutions


Solar Roofing is an Attractive and Effective Energy Solution

Choosing solar for your home is a great decision. Whether you are choosing solar to save money, support clean energy or invest in your home's equity we can help you navigate the process. Our team can help make your switch to solar power an easy and positive experience.

A great time to go solar is when installing a new roof. We can install and warranty both your roof and solar systems at Shadowfax Roofing and Solar. We have a variety of panels and inverters to choose from and our solar technicians can guide you through the many options for financing.

Why Go Solar?
  • You have to pay someone for your electricity bills, right? You can pay PG&E or you can PAY YOURSELF. Don’t get stuck paying PG&E forever!
  • Lock in your rates. PG&E’s rates keep rising each year. Average cost per kWh is $0.24, with peak rates much higher! Solar is only about $0.08 per kWh. That’s 3X CHEAPER than PG&E!
  • Claim the 30% federal tax credit (That’s cash in your pocket, not a tax deduction).
  • Add value to your home and if selling, most people are able to sell their homes faster.
  • Great investment with paybacks as low as 5-7 years!


Start saving today and get all your projects done at the same time with PACE financing.
