Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . You’ve made the decision to add a solar energy system to your home. What’s your next move? Thanks to our simple list, getting started with solar in Selbyville is a breeze. But if you have additional questions, just give us a call at 302-436-2922. Step 1: Call Red Dog Cooling, Heating, & Plumbing in Selbyville for a consultation, or set one up online. We’ll walk you through our detailed planning checklist to figure out whether your home meets our SunSource® installation requirements. Step 2: Determine whether your roof has enough space and gets enough sun. Each solar panel requires 15 square feet of surface area. Our experts can help you choose how many modules you will need or want for your house. Additionally, your roof needs to be essentially clear of shade from trees or other objects. Southern exposure is best, and our professionals will perform tests to figure out your monthly energy potential. Step 3: Look into possible building restrictions. Some Selbyville neighborhoods and Homeowner’s Associations may need you to submit your solar power plans prior to installation. Step 4: Upgrade your internet service. You’ll need internet that’s always connected and paired with a broadband router to take advantage of the SunSource performance monitoring service. Step 5: Find answers to all utility-related questions. Your technician from Red Dog Cooling, Heating, & Plumbing will check the grid power supplied by the utility company and look at your home’s distribution panel to make sure you meet the product specifications. You may want to call your utility company and see if a net-metering program is available. Net-metering enables you to receive credit for part of the electricity generated by your solar energy system. The utility company should also provide information on whether your solar products will qualify for rebates or incentives*. There’s lots to do to prepare for a SunSource® Home Energy System, but once it’s installed you’ll love watching your utility bills shrink. Want to get an idea of your savings beforehand? Call Red Dog Cooling, Heating, & Plumbing at 302-436-2922 if you have more questions about getting started with solar. *Note: Most rebates and incentives that make a solar energy system more affordable are only available when you’re system is grid-tied.
