Introduction to residential solar energy from Solar Switch

Residential solar energy is the future of powering our homes. It’s the cleanest source of renewable energy and provides reliable electricity to our homes in most areas of the country. With the help of SolarSwitch, you can get solar panels installed to make the switch to solar energy for your home. In addition to powering your home with an eco-friendly energy source, you’ll be saving money on your energy bills as well. If you’d like to get to know SolarSwitch, our process, and what sets us apart from the rest of the competition, read our short introduction below.

Free consultation

Before we get started with your solar installation, we want to see what we’re working with. Additionally, you likely want to find out how much it’s going to cost you to have your system installed as well as how we’re going to install it. The first step is booking your free consultation where we'll come out to your home and evaluate your roof and put together an installation plan. We’ll show you the areas of your roof that are ideal for catching sunlight and maximizing output from your solar panels. This is often on the south side of the home as that will get sunlight 12 months out of the year. However, if you prefer to have them installed on a different side because of your home’s positioning then we can come up with a plan to accommodate.

Part of our consultation includes evaluating the state of your roof. There’s a common misconception that having solar panels installed on your home will damage your roof. Solar panel installation has come a long way in the last decade and this simply isn’t true anymore. That being said, your roof must be in good condition to be able to handle the added weight of the panels. A damaged roof will need to be repaired before your installation can be performed.

Pre-installation roof repairs

Rather than calling another contractor to take care of your roof repairs, we can do that for you. You can continue to work with us as your trusted contractors and we’ll perform the repair for you. Not only does this make the process seamless and easy, but we can also make necessary adjustments to accommodate the solar panels. You can be confident that your roof will be ready to take a residential solar energy installation after we’re finished with it.

Residential solar system installation

Properly installing a solar system takes expert knowledge in how the solar panels work in addition to how the shape of your roof will work with them. While many installation jobs are similar, no two are exactly the same. We understand this and can make adjustments as needed to fit your rooftop. We’ll make sure that your solar panels are positioned in the best place to maximize energy production. Furthermore, we’ll assist you with all the required paperwork to take advantage of numerous incentives, rebates, and tax credits that come with installing a residential solar system.
