Sunny Arizona has become a hotbed for homeowners looking to go solar for their home’s energy needs. Here are five steps to installing the perfect solar photovoltaic (PV) system for your Arizona home.
1. Take a Look at Your Roof
What direction and angle is your roof? South facing roofs receive the most sunlight, and solar panels can be installed on roofs with a 0 to 45 degree angle (though 30 degrees is the magic number). But if your roof is not ideal, you can also ground mount your solar system.
2. Pick a Solar PV System
Do you want your solar system to be grid connected or completely grid-independent? Adding a battery storage system to your new solar electric system can keep your home running on renewable energy even overnight or during a power outage.
3. Know Your Home’s Energy Usage
Take a look at your last energy bill. How many kilowatt hours (kWh) does your home typically use? This will help your solar contractor determine how many solar panels your home will need to make the largest impact on reducing your energy bills.
4. Choose a Funding Option
Do you want to own your solar system? There are flexible options that combine with federal rebates and local utility incentives to make going solar as affordable as possible for Arizona homeowners.
Paying for a solar pv installation in cash has also been a popular choice for our customers over the past 10 years, since interest rates on on savings accounts have been so low.
