By now you’ve noticed the solar panels popping up all around you. Neighbors, businesses, schools, and more have made the switch to those solar panels that somehow use the power of the sun to run everything inside them. It may have you asking “Is solar right for me? Should I make the switch? Is it worth it?” Well, we can’t make the decision for you. But we can help you make the decision for yourself. Answer these following questions to determine if solar panels could be right for your Utah home or business:
Is Solar Right for Me?
Do you own your home or building? If you do, the choice is yours to add solar panels. It can be a shared investment if a business is owned by multiple parties and all agree to solar.
Do you live somewhere that is clear more days than it’s cloudy? Most people do, and even in cloudy weather or stormy climates solar panels can operate and store solar energy.
Do you have an unobstructed roof? This means your roof isn’t covered by an overhead bridge or other structure, or immediately blocked by large trees or close buildings. As long as you have a relatively clear path to the sun you’ll be fine.
Does your roof have a south-facing orientation? While not a deal-breaker, it’s a general rule of thumb for solar panels to be placed on the south-facing roof surface of a home or business. Take a good look at your home or business and see if the south side has a roof space. If you’re not sure how it could work, call Utah Solar Power for a free inspection and consultation.
Does your roof have enough unobstructed space for solar panel installation? It doesn’t mean your roof needs to be completely flat or without objects, but you should have a good square footage that isn’t interrupted by vents, chimneys, architectural disruptions or any other obstructions. Again, Utah Solar Power can help you determine if it will work for you.
Do you want to save money on your utilities bill? Yes, we thought so. Solar panels are helping Utah home and businesses owners save money every single month on their utilities. Solar energy is free, renewable, and being constantly stored.
Do you file state & federal taxes? If you do, buying a solar panel system will give you tax credits, rebates, and other incentives. It’s a compelling reason to make the switch, as it will defray the cost.
Do you have a job and decent credit? That’s all you’ll need to sign up for competitive financing for your solar panel system. There are huge loan incentives posed by the state and other levels designed to make it so easy to switch to solar panels.
So – is Solar right for you? For most people the answer is YES. Give us a call today to see if we can make solar a reality.
