Where to Start
You’ve been hearing about people putting solar panels on their roof for years, but have never given it any serious thought. That is, until you just opened your latest electric bill and almost passed out! Solar is really looking like a serious solution to your high bills – so, where to start?
1. Do your research
There are numerous manufacturers out there with a variety of residential solar panels for your home. See what people are saying – the internet is a great place for reviews about brands and products. Efficiency varies between solar companies and modules. Not all warranties are created equal, so make sure you choose a brand that not only has good ratings but also has a solid warranty.
2. Decide what you want
Are you interested in simply reducing your bill or completely eliminating it? Or are you more interested in being green? Systems are custom-sized according to your particular usage and your energy goals. Leasing has become a popular option for many people since the solar panel system is generally installed without cost and they have very low monthly payments.
3. Make the call
After you are armed with your information and have a good idea in mind about what you want to accomplish, now is the time to call for a site analysis.
The Solar Consultant will be able to explain the system in more detail as well as answer any questions about solar power that you still may have. They will also take measurements and assess any possible shading issues on the roof or elsewhere to make sure that the very best area is utilized.
By the end of the visit, you should have a good idea of not only how much your solar system will cost, but also how it works. You will then be able to make an educated decision about whether or not you are ready to make the switch to solar!
