What You Need to Know When Shopping for Solar Roofing

Tips for Exploring Your Bay Area Solar Solutions


© 2014 Century Roof & Solar

The solar revolution is upon us. More and more homeowners and business-owners are exploring the exciting, energy-saving, earth-saving benefits of solar roofing solutions. You might be excited to “go green,” too, and cut the dependency you have on the grid.

But what, exactly, do you need to know?

First, explore roofing contractors and solar companies thoroughly. Make sure that your installers have the certifications, insurance, and reputation to do the job right. (Learn more about the Century Roof & Solar team here at our website).

Next, determine what incentives you may be able to get. Your installer can alert you to possible tax benefits and rebates. You can also talk to the CA Department of Energy, which funds a great website about California solar incentives.

Next, figure out how you will pay for your system. Obviously, if you purchase the system upfront, you can generate higher savings over time. But you don’t necessarily have to invest tens of thousands of dollars upfront. You can get a loan and benefit from solar power without having to own the equipment outright. Investigate whether to get a lease or something called a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).
