Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . You’ve made the decision to add a solar energy system to your home. What’s your next move? Thanks to a short list we’ve made for you here, getting started with solar in Laguna Hills is simple. But if you have additional questions, just give us a call at 949-716-8379. Step 1: Call White Mechanical, Inc. in Laguna Hills for a consultation, or set one up online. We’ll walk you through our detailed planning checklist to figure out whether your home meets our SunSource® installation requirements. Step 2: Determine if your roof is big enough and gets enough sun. Each solar panel needs 15 square feet of surface area. Our experts can help you determine how many modules you will need or want for your home. Also, your roof needs to be relatively clear of shade from trees or other objects. Southern exposure is preferred, and our techs will perform tests to determine your monthly energy potential. Step 3: Look into possible building restrictions. Some Laguna Hills neighborhoods and Homeowner’s Associations may need you to submit your solar power plans prior to installation. Step 4: Upgrade your internet service. You’ll need an internet connection that’s always on and combined with a broadband router to utilize the SunSource performance monitoring service. Step 5: Find answers to all utility-related questions. Your representative at White Mechanical, Inc. will check the grid power supplied by the utility company and look at your home’s distribution panel to make sure you meet the product specifications. You may want to check with 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 will also let you know whether your solar products will qualify for rebates or incentives*. There’s plenty to do to prepare for a SunSource® Home Energy System, but after it’s installed you’ll love watching your utility bills get smaller. Want to get an idea of your savings beforehand? Call White Mechanical, Inc. at 949-716-8379 if you have any 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.
