3 Reasons to Schedule a Solar Site Assessment this Winter

It’s a new year, and if scheduling a solar site assessment was one of your resolutions for 2018, there’s no need to wait until spring.

Solar Site Assessment

Most Intermountain West residents don’t think about outdoor home improvement projects in the middle of winter. But it’s truly the perfect time to schedule a residential photovoltaic system consultation with a qualified local solar power contractor. Why?

No. 1: You’ll Get an Expert Opinion for Free

Most professional photovoltaic contractors — including Intermountain Wind & Solar — offer free solar site assessments to homeowners thinking of investing in a solar power system.

A free consultation is your chance to get an expert’s opinion on the ideal placement and configuration for a photovoltaic system at your location. And the opinion comes with no strings attached. You won’t have to suffer through a sales pitch and you won’t be pressured into signing a contract.

No. 2: You’ll Get Answers to All Your Questions

How much can you potentially save by switching to solar power? Should you opt for a micro-inverter or a string inverter for your system? What’s the deal with net metering? What are the options for financing a photovoltaic system?

During a solar site assessment, you’ll have a chance to ask all your questions — and you’ll get expert answers, based on your needs, goals and budget. Instead of searching for advice online, you can take advantage of your free consultation to gather information, enabling you to make informed decisions on your residential PV system investment.

No. 3: You’ll Be Ready for Your Solar Installation in the Spring

Schedule your solar site assessment now, and you’ll have plenty of time to make all the preparations for a spring installation. Your professional photovoltaic contractor can pull the necessary permits and you can make any necessary roof repairs and energy efficiency improvements you may have in mind. Then all you’ll need to do is choose a date for your photovoltaic installation. Once the winter weather disappears, you’ll be ready to make the switch to solar.

Industry experts recommend getting two or three site assessments and comparing estimates before choosing a photovoltaic contractor. Winter is a great time to schedule these consultations. It’s the slow season for residential PV system installers, so most contractors are available to meet at your convenience.
