What to Expect When Going Solar

Real Estate

If you are considering the option to install solar power throughout your home, it is important to know what you can expect throughout the installation process and with your day-to-day power generation. Here are some answers to some of the most common questions on what you can expect when changing over to solar power!

How to Start the Process

Contacting a solar power installation company is usually the best way to assess if you have a roof that is suitable for home solar panels. The condition of your roof will often be assessed first, and you may have to perform some type of roof repairs before the panels can be installed.

Tax Credits

There are currently tax credits that are available to help you in the process of going solar. These tax credits will not be available starting in 2022 so it is wise to take advantage of the credits to cut down on the overall payback period of your solar system.

Can I Generate Enough Power for My Home?

Most home solar systems are able to generate enough power for the home and sell some of the excess power back to the grid. A grid-tied solar system can make sure that you have the same uninterrupted power that you would experience from your regular electricity grid. You will receive multiple credits from the electric company for the power that you generate.

Can I Save Money?

Although you will be responsible for some upfront costs with the installation of your solar power system, you will be locking in your energy costs for the next 25 years. This leaves you with the ability to save money over time and enjoy reduced rates on utilities that will only continue to rise.
