Choosing to buy solar might not be a hard decision for you. In fact, if you’re reading this, it’s likely you’ve already made that decision!
But even though you know you WANT solar, are you ready for it?
Whether you’re making the solar investment for your business or your home, here are a few of our best tips for buying solar:
Know what your electricity consumption is like – whether you have a home or a business that you’re buying solar for; and do your research to ensure you’re getting the right size system to suit. The amount of electricity you use will have an effect on the size you require – you want to ensure you get a system that is big enough to match your usage, but not too big.
Know all about the electricity tariffs in your area and the changes that might occur when solar is connected. This could change for each business or home, depending on where you live and who your electricity provider is.
Solar isn’t as simple as choosing a style of system and leaving it at that. There are a number of elements to getting solar installed on your business, or residential, buildings. Before you make any major commitments, make sure you check all your products, and know everything you need to know about the warranties and guarantees on your solar system. What do they include; what do they not include; how long the warranties are valid, and so on.
Contact your electricity supplier and talk to them about how solar will impact your current account with them. Ensure they are aware of the system you’re planning to get, and get any advice from them about the benefits and savings you’ll have through them once you install.
