Determine if a Solar Power System is Right for You

A lot of people are interested in getting a solar panel installation, but the truth of the matter is, a solar panel installation isn’t going to be the right fit for all rooftops. But how can a homeowner determine if the solar panel installation is the right for them?

Look at Your Energy Habits

If you want to determine if your home is suitable for a solar power system, you should take a look at how much energy you consume. The amount of energy you're consuming is going to determine the size of the solar power system that you need and how much money you will need to pay for the initial investment.

If you don’t spend a lot of time at home and you are only in your home during off-peak hours, a solar panel installation may not benefit you that much in terms of savings. But if you are looking into installing solar panels for the sole reason of the environmental benefits of solar power, then by all means you should install solar panels.

A homeowner can also install a solar battery to store the solar power that is generated will you aren’t at home to be used at a later time. If you have energy bills that are off the charts, regardless if you have a solar battery or not, a solar power system will be able to significantly reduce your bills.

Should You Get a Rooftop Solar Power System?

When it comes to installing solar panels, there are two places where you can get a solar panel installation, on the ground or your rooftop. Where your solar power system should be installed is going to depend on a few factors;

How Big is Your Rooftop?

The good news surrounding where you get your solar panel installation is that today’s solar panels are becoming more and more powerful. But no matter how efficient the solar panels are, they still are going to need to take up some space. If you are a homeowner you should take a look at your rooftop and determine how much you are going to want to dedicate to solar panels. A homeowner should keep in mind that a 5 kW solar power system is going to cover close to 280 square feet of your rooftop.

You should also keep in mind the amount of sunlight that the rooftop gets. The roofs that are facing south are going to be perfect for solar panels because they get the most sunlight. But if you have an East or West-facing rooftop, they ware also going to be a viable option, you just might have to add a few extra solar panels.

What is the Condition of Your Rooftop?

If you are looking into getting a rooftop solar panel installation, you are going to need to make sure that your rooftop is in good condition, and that you aren’t going to make any repairs on your rooftop. If your roof is at the end of its life, you will probably want to make sure that you repair the rooftop before you get a solar panel installation. If you install solar panels on an old roof, it might cause structural issues, and when it is time to replace your roof, you are going to need to remove the solar power system, replace your roof, and then re-install your solar panel installation, which will result in more expenses.

How Much Ground Space You Have?

Ground-mount solar panel installations are growing in popularity throughout the United States. When it comes to ground-mount solar panel installations, they can be positioned to face the south at the optimal tilt to produce the most solar power. But, because a ground-mount solar panel installation is installed on the ground, you will need land space to install the solar panels.

If you don’t have a lot of land space, this might be an issue because a solar panel installation will take up a bit of ground space. You can ask a qualified solar installer about what kind of solar panel installation they recommend for you.

How Much Does the Solar Power System Cost?

The cost of solar is going can scare some people off. The cost of solar can vary based on a few different factors, which include the solar installer that you choose and the solar power equipment that you install. Some homeowners are going to want to choose the cheapest solar panels, but this isn’t always going to be the best option, your total overall savings will most times be higher if you invest in the higher-quality solar panels.

Homeowners will also have the option of utilizing solar incentives and solar rebates that are available in the area that they live in to lower the cost of solar panels. The federal investment tax credit is a solar incentive that offers the homeowner a 26 percent solar tax credit. There’s a lot of states and municipalities that have additional financial solar incentives for their residents. There’s going to be certain utilities that even are offering cash rebates to their customers as a way to encourage them to install solar panels.
