Making the decision to go solar is relatively easy.  It usually it starts with good green intentions and the expectation of energy savings.  Prospective solar consumers are right to first look at the physical attributes of an installation... and Helio Energy Solutions or a good solar installer can help you think through the obvious preliminary questions:

  • How much energy do I consume, and how large of a solar facility is ideal?
    (Hint: start by downloading 1 year of energy usage information)
  • Where should the solar facility be sited?
    (Hint:big, flat, sunny, strong roofs are great... carports will cost you)
  • What is my avoided cost of energy, and what are the potential energy savings?
    (Hint: if your solar sales rep can't compare pre- and post-solar utility bills, its time for a new rep)

 ...Paying for Solar is Hard.

Now comes the hard part - paying for solar.  As with buying a building or other long-lived asset, there is a big up front expenditure yielding decades of benefits, so cash purchases are unusual and financed purchases are the norm.  But tax incentives, complex accounting rules, and a fragmented and noisy financing marketplace make objective decisions difficult.
