Let’s get started and walk you through the solar energy consultation process.

What happens at a solar consultation?

When the solar energy specialist gets to your home, the first thing they will do is a walkthrough of your home.

What this includes is:

  •  A free home energy audit in which the specialist will identify any areas of leakage and potential energy efficiency upgrades.
  • A free roof inspection 
  • Education about your home’s energy meter and net metering if available in your area
  • Assessing your past electricity bills and usage
  • Education on how to read your electricity bill and how much you can save with solar

What will I get from a solar consultation?

At a solar consultation, not only do we educate you about solar energy but you’ll also get a customized solar solution for your home and your energy goals.

We want you to get the most out of your solar panel system for years to come, so you can get the most savings possible when you switch to solar.

After we assess your home’s energy, your goals, and your roof, we get to work designing a system that meets your home energy needs and goals.

We also go over any incentives available to you as well as what your electric bill savings might look like. This includes the federal solar tax credit, sales tax exemptions, solar rebates, net metering programs and how your home’s value can increase when you have solar power installed.

Do I need to do anything to prepare for my consultation?

If you have any past electric bills or access to your energy use online, you can have those handy. You’ll want to make sure the roof has ample access as well. Other than your curiosity for solar energy and anyone else who is interested, nothing else is needed on your end. Just sit back and let us handle everything!
