Feeling Over-Solared? (Too much of a good thing)
The Over-Solared Problem
Big Solar leasing companies are scouring the El Dorado Hills and Greater Sacramento area in search for available roof space for their panels. Why are they so aggressive in their tactics? Because they receive the lion's share of the benefits:
Leasing companies receive federal tax credits
Leasing companies receive utility rebates
Leasing companies receive monthly fees from homeowners
Leasing companies receive RECs (Renewable Energy Credits)
With these sorts of incentives, big Solar leasing companies have every incentive to over-solar your home with over-sized and overpriced systems. This leads to greater profits for them and higher payments for you!
5 Steps to avoid being Over-Solared
Step 1: Dismiss the overzealous solar salespeople from your home
Step 2: Assess your home's energy consumption (a free service we provide for ALL solar customers.) Often, there is significant room for improvement with inexpensive measures such as proper air sealing, insulation, and duct sealing. This leads to greater efficiency and lowers peak electricity demand.
Step 3: Properly size your solar system. Our free, no obligation solar & home energy assessment culminates with an specification of an appropriately sized system designed to meet your electricity needs and reduce your out-of-pocket expenses.
Step 4: Finance your solar panels. There are various plans available that allow for very little down and a 5.5% interest rate. Many of our customers claim that they break even and begin making money on their solar investment in as little as 4 years!
Step 5: Reap ALL the rewards of solar ownership:
Increased Home Value
