Miser Group outshines Tesla. We've installed thousands of micros with  under 100 ever needing service. Micros excel; more flexible system designs, 5-25% better solar harvesting and safety. Search: Tesla Solar Roof Fires. Tesla does not make the electronics.

Mounting Hardware

Tesla's 'Proprietary' roof mounting hardware relies on a cavity of 'sealant' to protect an bolt though your shingles and roof sub layers. Choosing to reinvent a near perfect existing solution to be 'proprietary' seems anti Tesla engineering. Solar panel trim offered has long term negatives. Most of the time you can't see up that high anyway.

Mounting Hardware USA made and installed fully flashed by crews who have installed 1,000's. Solar trim enclosing the sides of panels may look nice for the first few months, however these places become a home to insects, birds and mammals. Trim limits vital airflow to cool the panels in the hot summer and dry out the roof below in winter.

History on Miser's side. Sealants and unproven hardware is not a good start to a lasting roof install. Sealants rarely stand up long on roofs in the Carolina's.

Flashing are the tried and true method of lasting roof penetrations for hundreds of years. Thousands of roof mounts installed since 2014 - zero roof leaks. 

Installations are performed with a wide variety of products and installers, including third party contractors. A Tesla system has little to do with Tesla components and according to their website, up to six weeks after install before you start saving. Better have an easy roof too; ground mounts, carports, barns and mobile homes are frowned upon.

Service and warranty work is extremely difficult when multiple installers, vendors and product are used. Here is a recent post on Tesla's 'Satisfaction with Tesla Solar?' web page.

'Is anyone satisfied with their Tesla Solar install? Dissatisfied?
I've just got a bid and am looking at doing the install, but my HOA is pushing me not to do it because of how bad the reviews are of Tesla/SolarCity . . . 

Installation performed by our local crews who install the same rock solid components day after day. Miser Group handles all your paperwork. In-house Notary, NC Structural Field Engineer and Licensed Electricians to produce all reports from State filings to permitting. Your system starts producing on install day.

Service is one call, text or email away and FREE. Clients cannot be cared for from California and since we are certified on most string inverters, we wind up servicing these systems. Cannot stress this enough, every micro inverter installed can be swapped out by a new one, no matter how old, in minutes and you don't even need to be home. HOA's involve us in drafting HOA Solar standards due to happy homeowners in the community.

Miser hands down. Thousands of panels on homes, ground mounts, mobile homes, carports and commercial buildings, since 2014, our crews are highly experienced and NABCEP certified. We think Tesla would agree that consistent equipment and installation procedures fosters consistent results.

How about you?

Miser Group provides service with long, strong family ties in North Carolina and a busy electrical contracting division to complement solar installs. Lifetime system monitoring, panel by panel. So you know your system is at work for you. With Solar companies disappearing or unresponsive to service calls, our reputation for service grows beyond our installed client base.

Financing with Tesla, you are on your own. Tesla website states: 'Contact your solar loan provider directly to learn more.' Funding hard to come by. Cash price lower than a financed system. Stated price not guaranteed until system is approved as up charges exist.

Finance made easy. Miser believes using financing is a great tool to start off with nothing down. You get access the lowest finance rates and you'll know the system is installed and working before you pay a dime. No up-charges for items like steep roofs.

Miser makes going Solar easy. Zero Down, no payment for 60 days. Lowest finance rate available. No hidden costs. You decide when to pay your investment off. Financing can also provide access to funds to trim trees and replace roofs. No prepayment penalty and no lien on your home.

Sun = Energy + Equity

Wise investment decisions in product, price and companys are best based on transparent, verifiable information. Energy Miser clients consistently and continually share positive results and refer friends and family.  Impartial fact based information was clearly provided as these homeowners considered the long term advantages of going Solar. They understood the math.

EMG clients also understand the value of US based product and local installs and service by a company that has installed over 1,000 systems, with zero panel failures, zero roof leaks and zero down to go Solar.


Perhaps you like the predictability of that monthly, never-ending and forever increasing electric payment that buys you nothing.

Use Solar energy to power your home and reduce your dependence on the grid. Purchase solar at the lowest price and take control of your monthly electricity bill.

There exists an industry standard tool to predict solar production around the world. Duke Energy, Google, the financiers that fund solar installations utilize this tool we share with you to project savings on every system package. That's how you know expected returns on investment.

 Think about it, the sun rising each day is a lot more predictable than most investments!

What does the monthly payment you make now do to your net worth?

System Architecture

The importance of consistent system design and components is critical to success and service. Most companies offering you solar seem to skip over important aspects because you don't know any better...yet.

Common system designs are not easily expandable or upgradble with shorter warranties and have a single point of failure. EMG is proud to offer the very best US Tier One, black on black, mono solar panels each with Enphase micro-inverters with industry best 25 year warranties on the panels and electronics. Full, 24/7 panel by panel reporting for life. Up-gradable and expandable.

With the incredible tax benefits about to expire, the best time to go Solar is now.
