Getting Started with Solar Solutions has Never Been Easier. You’ve settled on adding a solar energy system. What’s your next move? Thanks to our simple list, getting started with solar in Naples is a breeze. But if you have more questions, feel free to give us a call at 239-244-3439. Step 1: Call Speedy Air Conditioning in Naples for a consultation, or set one up online. We’ll explain our detailed planning checklist to determine whether your home meets our SunSource® installation requirements. Step 2: Determine whether your roof is large enough and gets enough sun. Each solar panel needs 15 square feet of surface area. Our experts can help you decide how many modules you will need or want for your home. In addition, your roof needs to be essentially clear of shade from trees or other objects. Southern exposure is ideal, and our techs will perform tests to discover your monthly energy potential. Step 3: Look into possible building restrictions. Some Naples neighborhoods and Homeowner’s Associations may require you to submit your solar power installation plans ahead of time. Step 4: Upgrade your internet service. You’ll need an internet connection that’s always on and paired with a broadband router to take advantage of the SunSource performance monitoring service. Step 5: Find answers to all utility-related questions. Your technician from Speedy Air Conditioning will check the grid power supplied by the utility company and test your home’s distribution panel to make sure you have all the necessary specifications. You may want to call your utility company and see if a net-metering program is available. Net-metering lets you receive credit for part of the electricity generated by your solar energy system. The utility company can also tell you whether your solar products will qualify for rebates or incentives*. There’s plenty to do to prepare for a SunSource® Home Energy System, but after it’s installed you’ll love watching your utility bills decrease. Want an idea of how much you could save? Call Speedy Air Conditioning at 239-244-3439 if you have more questions about getting started with solar. *Note: Most rebates and incentives that make a solar energy system more affordable are only available when you’re system is grid-tied.
