Solar energy harvesting can be great if done right, especially during those hot summer and spring months when there is plenty of sunshine. Solar power can be an investment that pays off in the long run, helping you rein on those runway power bills, which can get quite expensive, especially during those warm summer months.
But before you dive right in, here are some important questions to ask:
What Do I Need to Get Started?
Harvesting solar energy is not hard. You will need solar panels, inverters, meters, and controllers. However, not all parts are equal, so you will definitely want one of our professionals to go over it with you. We also advise you to have your latest energy bill with you, so that we can go over potential savings.
What is the efficiency and warranty on the solar system?
Efficient solar panels generate more electricity from the same surface area size but may cost a bit more. You want to get the best-in-class solar panels with industry-topping performance and extensive warranty to maximize your savings. Depending on the make, most solar panels have warranties of up to 25 years.
What system size do I need for maximum savings?
Solar power is about saving on energy bills, why not save the most while doing it. Depending on your home energy consumption patterns, angle and orientation of your roof and the net metering rate of your utilities, our inspection team will make a good recommendation and the return you are likely to make.
Who will be doing the job?
Most contractors draw quotations only to outsource the labor or the materials. Now you get someone different in your home doing what you didn’t request at all. What a disappointment! At ALIVE Solar & Roofing, we provide everything “under one roof” at competitive prices for a superior solar system and maximum savings.
