Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . Adding solar-powered systems to your home is a good investment that will help you become more environmentally responsible and less dependent on the utility company. But it will require a bit of preparation before the system is installed. We’ve listed the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with Schagrin Gas Company in Middletown. 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, which means the roof needs enough space that’s virtually shade-free to place the panels. Each module needs 15 square feet of roof space. Your Schagrin Gas Company representative will let you know how many solar panels you need to install to have enough energy for your home. Step 3: Investigate possible building restrictions. If you’re a member of a neighborhood or Middletown Homeowner’s Association, you may need to share 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 necessitate an elaborate new internet connection. It only requires an internet connection with a broadband router that’s never turns off 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 usually have solar rebates and incentive programs to help decrease the cost of installing a solar energy system. You’ll also want to ask if the utility offers net-metering, which will let you get credit for additional electricity your SunSource system generates. Our professionals can help you find and fill out these forms. With these simple steps, getting started with solar is a breeze . Don’t let us forget to mention the savings you’ll accumulate after the system is in place.
