What is a Site Survey?

When you are ready to learn more about what solar can do for your home or business, Sunlight will schedule a complimentary evaluation with one of our system designers to determine if your property is viable for panels. The designer will record, measure, and analyze the following points of your building:

  • Roof design, shingle age, and condition
  • Orientation, height, and pitch of roof(s)
  • Available roof space for solar panels, roof vent locations, skylights, etc
  • Electric service panel suitability, including extra space for a dedicated breaker
  • Shading and other elements that will affect system production
  • Any other factors impacting system price and performance

After the designer has gathered this information, he or she can discuss your potential options for a solar electric system and provide you with a detailed estimate that outlines these major points:

  • Suggested number, type, and manufacturer of solar panels or collectors
  • Estimated energy production of the system
  • Financial information including rebate details, tax credits, annual electric savings, and return on investment
  • CO-2 reduction and potential environmental impact of switching to solar
  • The general cost of a system for your energy needs

Sunlight Solar Energy is available for complimentary site surveys at each of our branches. Contact us today to schedule your free evaluation!
