So you have decided to become progressive in your energy usage and have committed to the purchase of a solar power system for your home. Believe it or not, that was the easy part of the decision-making process. Now you must educate yourself on all aspects of the process before investing your hard-earned dollars in this new generator that will power the conveniences scattered throughout your home. What follows are some suggestions that should give you confidence that you have made the best selection for your needs.
Begin by speaking to close associates and family who have already had solar power installed in their homes. Often this is the very best way to get inside knowledge about the experience. Ask them questions about the specific system they purchased and why. Query them about the ins and outs of the installation process – such as the problems they may have encountered or the positive elements of the experience.
Next take the time to research what is involved in the installation of a solar panel system and the associated costs. Then identify companies in your area that offer installation services. Read reviews from previous customers. These are often one of the most telling ways to determine the caliber of a business.
Now contact several of the companies that seem to hold the greatest promise for meeting your needs. Invite them to your home so they can perform an initial inspection of the property and then request a quote for their services.
With three or four quotes in hand you are now prepared to make a decision and move forward in the installation process. There are many incentives at the local, state and federal levels for purchasing and installing solar systems. Be sure the company you work with can identify and explain these to your satisfaction. There are various certifications that accompany different panels. This is information you will want to have – and ensure that the panels were tested by a reputable organization.
