Getting Started with Solar Solutions has Never Been Easier. Adding solar-powered systems to your home is a smart investment that will help you become more environmentally responsible and less dependent on the utility company. But it can require a little preparation before the system is installed. We’ve listed the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with Twin Air LLC in Manassas. Just call or book your appointment using our online scheduler , and we’ll go through our detailed solar planning checklist and determine whether your home meets requirements for a SunSource® Home Energy System installation. Step 2: Determine the space and sunlight available on your roof. We install solar modules on your roof, so the roof will need enough space that’s virtually shade-free to place the panels. Each module needs 15 square feet of roof space. Your Twin Air LLC representative will help you decide how many solar panels you need to install to have enough energy for your home. Step 3: Investigate possible building restrictions. If you’re a member of a neighborhood or Manassas Homeowner’s Association, you could need to submit your solar energy system installation plans ahead of time. Step 4: Make sure your internet is solar-ready. Don’t worry – the SunSource doesn’t require an elaborate new internet connection. It simply requires an internet connection with a broadband router that’s never turns off so you can utilize the system’s web-based performance monitoring abilities. Step 5: Call your utility company to learn about solar programs and policies. Utility companies frequently have solar rebates and incentive opportunities to help reduce the cost of installing a solar energy system. You’ll also want to see if the utility offers net-metering, which will let you get credit for surplus electricity your SunSource system generates. Our professionals can help you find and fill out these forms. With these simple steps, getting started with solar is a breeze . We should also mention the savings you’ll add up when the system is in place. If you have other questions or concerns leading up to your solar product installation, just call Twin Air LLC at 703-666-8907.
