Do’s and Don’ts of Shopping For Solar

Toying with the idea of solar but not sure where to start? Super Solar is here to help! Check out a few of our do’s and don’ts to note when shopping for solar.

Do have an energy audit

A good first step is to evaluate and audit your home’s energy usage. At Super Solar, we believe that it doesn’t make sense to put a new solar system onto a home with energy “leaks.” Our full home energy assessment will diagnose any energy upgrades that can be made. Once we’ve reduced your home energy consumption, the remaining usage can be covered through solar power.

You can schedule a free home energy evaluation at any time but keep in mind that the most accurate calculation will be during seasons when energy usage is at its highest.

Do your research on the solar installer.

Like any long term purchase, due diligence is key for peace of mind. When researching, make sure to evaluate all aspects of the installer. How’s the warranty? What are the customer reviews like? Can you easily communicate with the installer?

Our team of energy experts is ready to assist with any questions you may have about past projects, warranties or financing. Super Solar is proud to offer a minimum 25 year parts and labor warranty and a slew of resources on local and federal tax incentives that will save your family money.

Don’t cut corners!

Many people like to install their solar panels by themselves. This “cheaper” alternative will probably end up costing you more in the long run.

At Super Solar, we utilize cutting-edge solar engineering and solar design software to customize a system specifically intended for your roof. Our software considers weather patterns, shading, LiDAR (light detection and ranging), and hours of sunlight to project your solar energy production much more accurately than a traditional site survey.

With our 24/7 solar monitoring app, you receive nearly real-time reporting of your solar panel output. Not only do you receive solar performance metrics but Super Solar is alerted should any system adjustments need to be made. With thousands of families served in the Tampa Bay area, we’re confident you won’t find this level of detailed reporting with other solar companies.

Don’t assume solar is too expensive for you!

Solar is one of the best investments you can make for your home! Current incentives include net metering, where any excess energy produced can be set back to the utility company for a credit on your next utility bill, and numerous state and federal tax credits. Check out more information on these incentives on our Cost of Solar page.
