You’ve made the decision to add a solar energy system to your home. What’s your next move? Thanks to a short list we’ve made for you here, getting started with solar in Olathe is a breeze. But if you have additional questions, just give us a call at 913-432-3342.
Step 1: Call Polestar Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning in Olathe for a consultation, or schedule one online. We’ll walk you through our detailed planning checklist to figure out whether your home meets our SunSource® installation requirements.
Step 2: Determine whether your roof has enough space and gets enough sun. Each solar panel needs 15 square feet of surface area. Our experts can help you determine how many modules you will need or want. Additionally, your roof needs to be essentially clear of shade from trees or other objects. Southern exposure is ideal, and our professionals will perform tests to determine your monthly energy potential.
Step 3: Look into possible building restrictions. Some Olathe neighborhoods and Homeowner’s Associations may need you to submit your solar power plans prior to installation.
Step 4: Upgrade your internet service. You’ll need an internet connection that’s always on and combined with a broadband router to take advantage of the SunSource performance monitoring service.
Step 5: Find answers to all utility-related questions. Your technician from Polestar Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning will check the grid power supplied by the utility company and look at your home’s distribution panel to make sure you meet the product specifications. You may want to contact your utility company and see if a net-metering program is an option. Net-metering lets you receive credit for a portion of the electricity generated by your solar energy system. The utility company should also provide information on whether your solar products will qualify for rebates or incentives*.
There’s lots to do to prepare for a SunSource® Home Energy System, but once it’s installed you’ll love watching your utility bills decrease. Curious about how much you can save? Call Polestar Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning at 913-432-3342 if you have any questions about getting started with solar.
