Getting Started with Solar Solutions has Never Been Easier. Adding solar-powered products to your home is a great investment that will help you become more environmentally responsible and less dependent on the utility company. But it does require a bit of preparation prior to installing the system. We’ve listed the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with Dynamic Comfort Solutions in Locust. Just call or book your appointment using our online scheduler , and we’ll come over to go through our detailed solar planning checklist and figure out 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, so the roof will need enough space that’s virtually shade-free to place the panels. Each module takes up 15 square feet of roof space. Your Dynamic Comfort Solutions representative will let you know how many solar panels you need to install to have enough energy for your home. Step 3: Investigate possible building restrictions. If you’re a member of a neighborhood or Locust Homeowner’s Association, you may need to submit 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 need a fancy new internet connection. It simply requires an internet connection with a broadband router that’s never turns off so you can make use of 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 opportunities to help offset the cost of installing a solar energy system. You’ll also want to know 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 easy steps, getting started with solar is easy . We should also mention the savings you’ll rack up when the system is in place. If you have other questions or concerns before your solar product installation, just call Dynamic Comfort Solutions at 704-485-5506.
