1: Not having Enough Educating on Solar

It is of prime importance that you educate yourself regarding Solar before going solar. Because if not, you can invest more money in it than the required amount, or you can have a system that does not fulfill your demands. In either case, you can waste money and will not attain maximum benefits from your system. The internet, no doubt, is flooded with heaps of information regarding everything. And sometimes, it is challenging to gather valuable information from all the clutter. We can also be helpful to you in this matter, as our educational blogs have all the information you need before going solar. Either Read our blogs or do your research online, but it is foremost to know your requirements before approaching solar companies.

2: Not Tracking the Energy Consumption

Knowing about your energy consumption before finalizing things is of prime significance. Check your previous bills and get your hands on knowing how much electricity is being used by your household. All good solar companies provide you with an estimation of what you need according to your usage. If you know your energy consumption details, you can also try our Solar Calculator to get an idea of the appropriate system and how much it can charge you per your current location. You can try it when you intend to go solar.

3: Not Knowing the Right Size for your Energy Consumption

If your system is not the right size, it will produce too much or too little for your house. It is always better to find a system that fulfills your energy needs. The surplus amount will also not be significant as an extensive system will cost you much more. So educating yourself in knowing the size of the system is also fundamental. Our solar blog, “How many solar panels do you need for your house?” and Solar Calculator, can also help you get a clear idea of the panels that suit your energy consumption.

4: Not Getting Multiple Quotes

It should be significantly emphasized to get multiple quotes before choosing any company. Because you need a comparison to select a nonpareil, reliable company for your system installation, the price would not always be the fantastic way to judge a company. It is better to see the value for money before selecting any company. The organization which provides you with the most value against an affordable price (which might not be the cheapest) would be a wise choice. Because if you end up getting a cheap solar system for your house, which is not durable and reliable, you will not save money and will not gain any benefits in the long run. Also, if the system is very substandard, it won’t be able to resist the harsh climatic conditions, and it will cause you more harm.

5: Not Deciding the Location of the Installation

The client must do their homework to choose a good location for Installation. Trusting the companies is good, but it can also trick you sometimes. If a person wants the system in some specific place due to the aesthetics or if you know what direction is best for the panels, it is always better to make your own decision other than the installer making it for you. Because sometimes, the installer is captivated by choosing a location that is more accessible to them or is more economical. But it would be crucial for you to get the system to a place where it looks nice and gives the maximum benefit, right? So it is better to research than rely solely on the installer.
