Ask an expertIs private solar right for you?

Whatever your reason for exploring solar energy – economic, environmental, or something else - we’re committed to helping you with information to make an informed, educated decision about private solar.

To get started, here are a few questions to see if your home is a good candidate for a rooftop solar system. These aren’t the only factors you should consider, but this is a good start.

  1. Do you own your home?
  2. Does your roof face south and/or west?
  3. Does your roof receive full sun? (This means that it’s not shaded or blocked by vegetation or another structure)
  4. Is your roof less than five years old?
  5. Do you plan to stay in your home for the next five years or longer?

If you answered “yes” to all of these, you may be a good candidate to consider a private solar system. You are ready for the next steps in considering rooftop solar for your home. Let’s go a little deeper into information for you to consider and to discuss with your solar sales professional.
