Is My Home a Good Fit For Solar?

Solar systems are designed to operate in all environments, but some types of rooftops may not be as suitable for panels. Aged or tree-covered roofs are not the best candidates for solar installations.

It’s also important to consider the overall size, slope, and shape of the roof. If your roof is not suitable for panels, not to worry! Ground mounts are an excellent option for properties that lack roof space or the correct angle. Our solar specialists will inspect your roof and provide you with the best solar option for your property.

What Planning is Needed?

Estimating your electricity needs is essential to help your solar contractor provide the perfect solar recommendations for your property. Gather past electric bills for an accurate electricity usage estimate. You’ll need to determine your annual electricity needs to select the best solar system to support those needs.

In addition to reviewing your energy usage, make sure to plan for any potential energy usage fluctuations. If you’re purchasing an electric vehicle in the near future or expanding your home, you’ll need to account for the increased energy consumption. On the flip side, if you’re actively making changes to improve your home’s efficiency, you may end up utilizing less energy than in past months.

What Maintenance is Needed?

You’ll be relieved to discover that solar panels generally require very little maintenance! An occasional light cleaning and scheduled professional inspections can go a long way in ensuring your system lasts for years to come. Keep chasing the sun and saving on your monthly utility bills when performing these light routine maintenance steps.

What are the Environmental Benefits?

Going solar is a goal for many individuals. Those looking for a clean energy option often turn to solar for a steady, environmentally-friendly power source. If you’re on a mission to reduce your carbon footprint, look no further! Fewer carbon emissions makes for a happy Earth all around.
