5 Points To Consider Before Switching To Solar
Energy Systems
2
Solar energy systems can provide homeowners with
a range of benefits. From providing clean power,
reducing your monthly electricity bill, to
protecting you from the escalating costs of
energy, solar energy is a reliable and sound
investment.

Before beginning your research on which solar
panel to purchase, consider the following five
points before switching to solar energy systems
1) Decrease Your Energy Consumption
Solar energy is awesome, however it still
requires a financial investment. Start by
reducing the amount of electricity you currently
use. Make small changes in your consumption
habits.
In other words, use less but save more! Decreased
consumption means the amount of solar energy you
produce will offset total energy usage.

2) Implement Energy Efficient Measures
This is the flip side of the reduction equation.
A home that is poorly insulated will leak away
energy dollars. Most solar installers will first
recommend certain energy efficiency improvements
prior to commencing solar panel installation.
In some states, this practice is codified into
legislation. For example, in the state of New
Jersey a higher solar rebate is applicable to
home owners who opt for a professional energy
audit of their home before solar panel
installation.

3) Carefully read your Electricity Bill
  • Most people are unaware of the per kilowatt-hour
    rate they pay for electricity consumption.
  • They arent aware of the delivery and supply
    charges which make up a major portion of the
    bill.
  • Closely examine your electricity bill and find
    out the rate structure youre using.
  • For example, if youre on a TOU (time of use)
    structure, it is better to do the dishes and
    laundry at night when energy rates are cheaper.
    You might also want to reduce your air
    conditioner usage during the day when energy rate
    are most expensive.
  • By becoming familiar with how and when you use
    energy, you can make changes to your habits and
    reduce electricity consumption.

4) Assess your Roof and Location
A professional will help you determine whether
your roof receives complete sun exposure between
the hours of 9am to 3 pm. This is a
recommendation to obtain the maximum benefit from
our solar panels. In addition, does your roof
have southern exposure? Homeowners with a
south-facing roof receive maximum sun exposure.

5) Evaluate your Finances
To get started with solar energy systems, you
will need to either finance a considerable sum or
pay the entire amount upfront. However, most
solar panel companies offer excellent (and
painless) payment options. In addition, states
such as California, Massachusetts, New Jersey and
New York offer excellent rebate and incentives on
solar panel installations.
