Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . You’ve made the decision to add a solar energy system to your home. Now, how do you know where to begin? Thanks to our simple list, getting started with solar in Abilene is simple. But if you have more questions, don’t hesitate to give us a call at 325-692-5850. Step 1: Call Abilene Air-Tech Inc in Abilene for a consultation, or make your appointment online. We’ll go through our detailed planning checklist to determine whether your home meets our SunSource® installation requirements. Step 2: Find out if your roof is big enough and gets enough sun. Each solar panel takes up 15 square feet of surface area. Our team can help you decide how many modules you will need or want. Also, your roof needs to be mostly clear of shade from trees or other objects. Southern exposure is best, and our professionals will perform tests to determine your monthly energy potential. Step 3: Look into possible building restrictions. Some Abilene neighborhoods and Homeowner’s Associations may require you to submit your solar power installation plans ahead of time. Step 4: Upgrade your internet service. You’ll need an internet connection that’s always on and paired with a broadband router to take advantage of the SunSource performance monitoring service. Step 5: Find answers to all utility-related questions. Your technician from Abilene Air-Tech Inc will check the grid power supplied by the utility company and inspect your home’s distribution panel to make sure you have the required specifications. You may want to contact your utility company and see if a net-metering program is available. Net-metering enables you to receive credit for part of the electricity generated by your solar energy system. The utility company should also provide information on whether your solar products will qualify for rebates or incentives*. There’s a lot to do to prepare for a SunSource® Home Energy System, but once it’s installed you’ll love watching your utility bills decrease. Curious about how much you can save? Call Abilene Air-Tech Inc at 325-692-5850 if you have additional 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.
