There are a number of factors we consider when evaluating your home for a solar electrical system. These factors include shading, roof pitch, orientation, material, age, and structural integrity, as well as what utility company you use and any HOA or Historical District regulations that may apply to your home. For more details on the factors we consider, read more in our learning center.
Every month, your utility company will record how much energy you use and subtract how much your solar system generates. At the end of the month, you’ll pay the net difference. You can build up credits in the summer when you’re producing more than you use, and use those credits in the winter. Any leftover credits will go away after March 31st. This process is called Net Metering.

When considering solar for your business, factors we keep in mind include electrical demand, physical attributes of the property like roof and land surface area, pitch, and orientation, and future prospects of your commercial investments.

Site assessments typically take around an hour for a residential system. If you have any questions for the system designer, we are happy to answer any questions you have during the site assessment.
Our system designers like to look at your electricity bill and any site plans you may have during the site assessment. We will also need attic or crawlspace access in order to build our structural design plans.
