Switching to solar energy is a big decision that can benefit both the environment and your wallet. Before your solar consultation with a Sunrun representative, there are a few things to keep in mind to get the most out of your appointment. 

Understand your energy needs

Before the consultation, take some time to evaluate your current and future energy needs. Collect your utility bills from the last 12 months, as the Sunrun representative will rely on this information to design your customized solar energy system. By understanding your energy consumption patterns, the representative can tailor a solution that meets your current requirements and covers any potential changes in the future. This step ensures that the solar system designed for you is as efficient and effective as possible.

Consider the need for a home battery

During the solar consultation, the Sunrun representative will evaluate whether your home would benefit from a home battery. Home batteries can store excess solar energy generated during the day to help you beat high utility rates or power through outages. If you live in an area with frequent power interruptions or want to maximize your energy independence, discuss this with the representative. Understanding the role of a home battery in your solar energy system is essential for making an informed decision about its inclusion in your setup.

Prepare questions and clarifications

The solar consultation is your opportunity to learn about the ins and outs of solar power and how it can benefit your specific situation. Before the meeting, jot down any questions or concerns you might have about the solar process, system maintenance, potential savings, or the environmental impact. Then make sure all decision makers will be home for the appointment. The Sunrun consultant is there to address all your questions, they want to ensure that everyone leaves the consultation with a comprehensive understanding of how solar works and how it can positively impact your home.

In conclusion, approaching your solar consultation with preparation and a clear understanding of your energy needs will help you get the most value from the session. The Sunrun representative is there to guide you through the process, design a custom solar energy system tailored to your requirements, and provide information on payment options. By keeping these three key points in mind, you can make informed decisions about adopting solar energy for your home.
