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 responsible and less dependent on fossil fuels. But it can require some preparation before the system can be installed. We’ve outlined the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning in Wyandotte. 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, meaning the roof needs enough space that’s nearly shade-free to place the panels. Each module takes up 15 square feet of roof space. Your Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning representative will help determine 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 Wyandotte 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 need a fancy 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 capabilities. Step 5: Call your utility company to learn about solar programs and policies. Utility companies commonly have solar rebates and incentive policies to help reduce the cost of installing a solar energy system. You’ll also want to see if the utility offers net-metering, which will allow you to get credit for extra electricity your SunSource system generates. Our experts can help you find and fill out these forms. With these simple steps, getting started with solar is a breeze . And we didn’t even mention the savings you’ll rack up once the system is in place.
