The solar panel industry has grown substantially in recent years. To be a part of this growth, many homeowners are installing solar panels on their properties. With so many choices available, it can be difficult to determine which payment plan for solar panel is best for you and your household’s needs. The first thing to look at is the monthly payments because they will vary depending on the system size and number of panels installed. You want to make sure that you can afford them without having too much stress or worry about how the payments fit into your budget each month. It also doesn’t hurt that most utility companies offer incentives if you choose one of their regulated rates as your payment plan option.
Things to consider before you go for solar panels
Many people are turning to solar power as a way of reducing their carbon footprint and save money. What they don’t realize is that the initial cost, installation process, and maintenance requirements make it difficult for some to go solar. There are many things you should consider before going solar:
- How much sunlight your house receives on average per day?
- What type of roofing material your house has (solar panels work best on shingle roofs)?
- Where in the country you live; whether or not you will be able to afford any government incentives?
- If there is enough space around your property for additional structures like a battery storage unit etc.
