Arizona homeowners have installed solar to save money, break free from the utility monopoly and reduce their carbon footprint. But going solar can feel overwhelming. Here’s a quick guide to what you can expect during a home solar consultation with Sunny Energy.
Your Consultation Should Be About Educating, Not Selling
First of all, it is vital to understand solar before you decide to have solar panels installed on your home. An excellent solar consultant can help. They should answer questions that you may have and give you a transparent quote for how much solar will cost and how much it will help you save.
At Sunny Energy, our solar consultants will help you understand solar and help you determine if solar is the right fit for you and your family. Honestly, it isn’t always! And we’ll be the first to tell you if solar isn’t right for you because of your home, energy consumption, or savings. We don’t want you to go solar at all costs – only if it makes sense for you!
Ask to See the Design, Price, Savings, and Incentives
There is a lot of information about solar, and you should be able to see it all in one, easy-to-understand place. We created an industry-leading tool to help you know what your system would look like, how much it would cost, the available incentives for you, and your estimated savings. To give you accurate information, we’ll ask for:
- Your goals – why are you thinking about solar? Is it to maximize savings, reduce your carbon footprint, or limit your energy purchased from the utility company? Your utility bills to calculate your energy consumption
- Your energy usage (you can get this from your utility bills)
- Your address to review the orientation of your home and available roof space
Our solar consultants use the Sunny Energy portal to accurately and reliably provide you with all of the information you need, including price, incentives, expected savings, and the overall process.
Get a Fair and Honest Solar Proposal
Once you have reviewed the quote – ask about hidden costs. At Sunny Energy, we believe in doing right by the homeowner, not making the biggest sale. We don’t hide fees or costs – what you see in the proposal is what you can expect.
When you are happy with the proposal, we’ll provide you with a contract, which points out the scope of work and the details of the solar installation.
We will then send in our award-winning operations team for a kickoff call where they walk through the entire process and timeline. The paperwork that comes along with the process is also under their scope of work; essentially, they’ll handle them for you! From utility, city permits, and HOA – they’re experienced in handling it all! They’ll also set you up with our software tool that lets you track the status of your project, review your documents in one place, and orient you with the system.
