Getting Started with Solar Solutions has Never Been Easier. Adding solar-powered equipment to your home is a smart investment that will help you become more environmentally friendly and less dependent on the utility company. But it will require a bit of preparation before the system is installed. We’ve mapped out the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with Speedy Air Conditioning in Naples. Just call or set up an appointment using our online scheduler , and we’ll come over to go through our detailed solar planning checklist and discover whether your home meets requirements for a SunSource® Home Energy System installation. Step 2: Determine the space and sunlight available on your roof. We install solar modules on your roof, which means the roof needs enough space that’s nearly shade-free to place the panels. Each module needs 15 square feet of roof space. Your Speedy Air Conditioning representative will help you decide how many solar panels you need to install to generate enough energy for your home. Step 3: Investigate possible building restrictions. If you’re a member of a neighborhood or Naples Homeowner’s Association, you might need to show them your solar energy system installation plans ahead of time. Step 4: Make sure your internet is solar-ready. Don’t worry – the SunSource doesn’t necessitate an elaborate new internet connection. It only requires an internet connection with a broadband router that’s always on so you can utilize the system’s web-based performance monitoring service. Step 5: Call your utility company to learn about solar programs and policies. Utility companies frequently have solar rebates and incentive programs to help offset the cost of installing a solar energy system. You’ll also want to ask if the utility offers net-metering, which will allow you to get credit for surplus electricity your SunSource system generates. Our team can help you find and fill out these forms. With these few steps, getting started with solar is a breeze . And we didn’t even mention the savings you’ll add up once the system is in place.
