Most solar contractors will install a PV system that's just right for your needs and at a fair price. But not every company has the homeowner's best interests in mind. Always take with a grain of salt an amazing offer pitched by commission-based salesmen. You should likewise beware of offers that may include a free Ipad, a $500 gift card or a thousand-dollar discount. That's because it's easy for a contractor to recoup the money for these things in the installation quote. Since you may not know what a typical system costs, you won't know if the price is reasonable or not.
That's why it's recommended that you get briefed beforehand on your options by an independent source. One way to do this is by logging on to free online tools like PV Watts and SolarEstimate.org. See the links to these apps on our Solar Calculators page.
However, if you can afford a $20 investment, TheSolarPlanner.com offers a more personalized site assessment service that takes a closer look at your home and electric bill. Completing our survey form requires you to do a little research, but that will pay off with a site-specific report of your solar PV potential, costs, and earnings you can expect to accrue over time. You'll also have the opportunity to submit a few questions. To get your report, just follow these two steps:
Step 1) Go to Online Form
After you've completed and submitted the form, the server will return you to this page to make a payment below.
Payments are made to the site assessor (R. Regello) via TheCityEdition.com, which sponsors the website pages of The Solar Planner. Choose one option from the drop-down menu. You do not need to open an account with Paypal, and can quickly make a secure payment with any major credit or debit card.
The home solar report is available to U.S. residences only. To complete the site survey, you'll need your last utility bill (or the last 12 bills, if you have them), along with some other basic info about your home. If you can't answer a question, you can always select "not sure" or update the form a day or two later. You'll receive a report by email in about a week (two weeks for snail mail) that includes:
