Important Considerations When Selecting a Solar System

Important Considerations When Selecting a Solar System

Here are some useful tips to help you with the selection of a solar system.  Too often, I am seeing homeowners steered in a direction that is guided only by the options provided by a solar company or sold a low-cost option that will disappoint them in the years to come.

First, the size of your system should be determined by your last 12 month’s kilowatt usage or a calculation using square footage if less than 12 months electrical usage is available.  Making sure your system can produce all the power you require is very important.  You can download your last 12 months kilowatt usage from the APS web site.  Know what your kilowatt requirements are prior to speaking with a solar company and get (in writing) how many kilowatts the system will produce.  A smaller system will result in a lower price but if you choose a small system (produces less kilowatts than you require) you will be disappointed in the long run. A good rule of thumb is to have your system produce approximately 5 to 10% more than you normally use.

Second, understanding all the purchase and lease options will give you peace of mind once you make a selection.  For some homeowners, a lease option may work for their situation while others can take advantage of purchasing the system.  This decision is guided by a financial review, priorities of the homeowner, and an understanding on the details of each program.  Knowing why you didn’t pick one option over another is just as important as why you did choose a certain program.

Finally, choosing a solar option is about controlling your own cost of energy.  Different size systems and owning vs leasing will have an affect over the years by the choices the homeowner makes.  Make sure you select what you believe to be right for you and your needs and your new source of power will serve you in the most beneficial capacity possible for a long time to come.
