Many business owners and homeowners look to solar solutions as an energy option when they want better energy and long term cost savings. Green Go Solar believes everyone can benefit from solar, but that doesn’t mean that everyone can or should.
As a consultant first, I spend time to see how you live, and I ask a lot of questions to determine if solar is the best solution for you, or if would be better to wait. This may not sound like a typical solar salesperson, because I’m not. My ultimate goal is to design a system that improves the quality of your life – whether that is at home with your family, or at work with your employees. Solar needs to make sense, or you shouldn’t do it.
As a homeowner and/or business owner, your electricity costs are a monthly expense that you often want to reduce. Here are some benefits of Solar, as well as information about when NOT to get a solar system.
Residential Solar Solutions
No money out of pocket for your solar system means you can generate cleaner power right away while paying the same, or less, for better energy. Freeze your energy bills!
Allow you to earn a return on investment both in energy savings and in increased home value.
Reducing our reliance on fossil fuels is a long term and sustainable energy solution for future generations.
Commercial Solar Solutions
Long term cost savings are the main benefit of commercial solar. Significant savings can be realized when solar is used in exchange, or in addition to electricity. With electricity prices going up every year, and fossil fuel prices growing, solar is a great way to protect against increases, helping you to better manage expenses.
Position your company as a leader in sustainability by reducing your environmental footprint. In today’s economy, consumers are more concerned with causes than ever before. Market yourself green, and take a stand with solar.
Reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. Commercial properties use significantly more electricity that homes, and choosing renewable energy can help us all have a future of industry and commerce with fewer carbon emissions.
Not only are more consumers doing business with businesses they align with ethically, so are employees. Operating in an environmentally conscious way can improve morale and employee attraction and retention.
Is Solar Right for You?
When we meet, we look at several factors to determine if solar is right for you. Some of the considerations we look into include:
Your current utility bills. The bigger your electric bills, the more money you can expect to save.
Your potential savings. We compare what you would expect to save against your investment to determine if it makes sense.
Solar costs. We look at the cost of the entire solar system including installation and equipment to make a fair comparison – not one biased towards a company.
Rebate and incentives. Let’s take a look at what other ways we can save and factor those in, as long as get clear about how they work.
Financing. We look at financing, out of pocket costs and more to see if the value exists, or if another option should be considered.
Your roof. Your roof will get a lot of attention in our first meeting. We need to know about size, shading, condition, angle, direction, composition, age, future building plans, and more to determine if solar is a good fit, and if there are any additional costs due to your roof.
Your goals. We need to understand your long-term goals including how much energy you use now, and how much you expect to use in the future, how long you plan on staying in your home, and any other energy or air quality needs you have.
Why do I ask so many questions?
Because there are a lot of people in the solar industry who just want to sell panels, even if it isn’t your best interest. As an expert in energy design, I want to create the perfect system for your needs, which may or may not include solar.
