You know your square footage, you know you have some roof space that faces south. Seems reasonable that you could just call us and get a quote for solar, right? It’s actually quite a bit more complicated than that.
There are many variables that go into a solar system that fits your specific needs and situation. That’s why it’s difficult to give a quote over the phone; we don’t have all the information we need to give you an accurate estimate.
Solar systems are designed based on how much energy you use, not the size of your home. For example, a 2,000-square foot 20-year-old home with a 10-year-old refrigerator and its original windows may use more power than a 3,000-square foot brand new home with Energy Star appliances and energy-efficient windows. A family with two teenagers who use gaming systems and several electronic devices will probably use more energy than an empty-nester couple in an otherwise identical home. Your power bill is just as unique as you are.
Your roof itself will also impact the price tag of your solar system. Your overall roof space and vent placement will impact how many panels you can fit and where. If parts of your roof are shaded during the day, you will need more panels to get the power you need.
