“Four Reasons to Go Solar”

A 2012 survey showed that 97% of Americans overestimate the cost of installing solar power in their homes by thousands of dollars

How to get started in solar

  1. Calculate how much electricity your home consumes – you want a solar panel system that will generate enough power to offset your entire electrical bill
  2. What kind of roof do you have, tile or non-tile?
  3. Does your roof face south (best), east or west? We do not recommend installing solar panels on north-facing surfaces
