So, you’re excited about the idea of going solar but wonder, “Will solar work on my house?” No worries. We can help you figure that out with these three simple questions:
1. Do you dread getting your electric bill? If you’re paying a lot for electricity, there’s a good chance that solar can help you remedy that situation. That’s why Americans are installing new solar panels every three minutes1. They know that solar electricity is clean, renewable, good for your wallet and for the planet. The higher your utility bill, the more you can save with solar.
2. How’s your roof looking these days? Solar panels have long lifespans, so it’s a good idea to do any necessary roof updates or repairs before the installation. That way, once your solar system is up and running, you won’t have to worry about a thing. If your roof doesn’t need fixing or replacing in the next 20 years, you should be good to go. One other thing to consider is – does your roof face south, east or west? The most effective solar panels are on roofs that face south for maximum exposure to sunlight. But don’t worry if yours doesn’t. Houses that face east or west can still generate solar power – our installer will take a look and let you know if your home is good for solar.
3. Do you live in an area that we service? That’s kind of a big deal. Right now, we're in 22 states, plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. We're growing quickly and adding new service areas. So even if we’re not in your neighborhood now, keep an eye out. We may be soon.
