Can I Go Solar?
A home solar system is a clean, efficient way to generate sustainable energy. When exploring your home solar options, some initial factors to consider are the home orientation, shading, and roof structure. The amount of energy generated from solar panels is directly dependent on the size of the system, which is limited by these factors.
The next set of factors to consider is your budget and any available federal, local and utility incentives. Even though supplying 100% of your home's electricity from solar panels is an option, most solar homes are actually "hybrids," with a portion of their electricity originating from panels and the remainder being supplemented by the local utility. While the amount of energy generated from solar panels is dependent on the size of the system and the factors of your home, a solar system can be within your budget with available incentives and flexible financing options.
