Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . You’ve settled on adding a solar energy system to your house. Now what? Thanks to our simple list, getting started with solar in Menomonie and western Wisconsin is a breeze. But if you have additional questions, just give us a call at 715-352-4052. Step 1: Call Halverson Brothers Inc in Menomonie and western Wisconsin for a consultation, or set one up online. We’ll explain our detailed planning checklist to decide whether your home meets our SunSource® installation requirements. Step 2: Determine if your roof is big enough and gets enough sun. Each solar panel takes up 15 square feet of surface area. Our experts can help you determine how many modules you will need or want. Additionally, your roof needs to be essentially clear of shade from trees or other objects. Southern exposure is ideal, and our professionals will perform tests to figure out your monthly energy potential. Step 3: Look into possible building restrictions. Some Menomonie and western Wisconsin neighborhoods and Homeowner’s Associations may require 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 joined with a broadband router to utilize the SunSource performance monitoring service. Step 5: Find answers to all utility-related questions. Your representative at Halverson Brothers Inc will check the grid power supplied by the utility company and look at your home’s distribution panel to make sure you have the required specifications. You may want to call your utility company and see if a net-metering program exists. Net-metering lets you receive credit for a portion of the electricity generated by your solar energy system. The utility company can also tell you whether your solar products will qualify for rebates or incentives*. There’s plenty to do to prepare for a SunSource® Home Energy System, but when it’s installed you’ll love watching your utility bills decrease. Curious about how much you can save? Call Halverson Brothers Inc at 715-352-4052 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.
