There are several steps that we recommend you take before installing solar panels in your home.
Before choosing solar for your home, below are a few questions to consider:
- Does my home have clear and unobstructed access to sunlight for most, or all, of the day, throughout the year?
- Do I have a large enough roof or area to accommodate the system I need?
- Does my community or homeowners association have any covenants in place that prohibit solar panels?
