Getting Started with Solar Energy

What are the benefits to using Solar Energy?

A Solar Electric system can power your home so you use less electricity from the public utility. 



You can generate your own power by having Solar panels installed on your house. 

A solar electric system can increase a homes value by reducing annual operating costs.

This is not only a cost-efficient way to produce energy, it is also Environmentally friendly.  Solar is 100% clean and generates no harmful emissions.   



Ohio public utility rebates and the federal government's tax credits can help you pay for a  substantial portion of your system and installation. 

Solar Energy is a lasting investment that will provide you with renewable energy and save money!

Getting Started

To determine the best Solar System design for your particular location and needs, we will need to perform a Site Survey.

A Site Survey is an assessment of the area on which the Solar System is going to be installed.

There are several important factors to consider when determining whether your site is appropriate for Solar.

Systems installed in the Northern Hemisphere need to have a southern exposure. 
PV modules should be exposed to the sun for as much of the day as possible for maximum power output. This is especially important during the peak sun hours of 10a.m. to 3 p.m.



The installation area must be free of obstructions such as trees or buildings that might shade the module.  Shade will block the production of energy from your Solar System by preventing solar energy from being absorbed by the PV panels. 

Clouds will have a different effect on your system.  A PV system can still produce up to 80% of its potential energy on a cloudy day.

The unobstructed area must also have sufficient space to install the PV system. 
The output of PV modules is directly related to time and weather.

Where you live will affect the number of PV modules you will need for power.  However, PV systems can still produce electricity in bad weather.

If you are interested in pursuing your renewable energy options, schedule a Site Survey to determine the best choice for your home.
