The most common concern people have is whether or not they can have a solar panel system installed in their homes. When I was first thinking about getting one installed, I hardly had any idea of what a big project this would be. Apparently there are things on your home that have to be evaluated before you can even have a single panel installed on your rooftop.

Experts came in and they assessed the area of the roof which the panel would fit on. They had to assess the amount of sunlight that hit the roof during different times of the day. It is important that the panels are facing south at a 20 degree angle. If ever there are large buildings or trees that can obstruct the sunlight, then forger about getting solar panels.

The next concern that people have is how big of a solar panel they are going to need installed. Basically this is limited by how much area you have available on your roof top and how much of a budget you have for the total project. What you can also do is to check your energy bills from the past. Take a look at how much electricity you are using and maybe you can work around that.

Another concern is how long it will take to have a solar panel system installed on the room and wired to the house. In my case, I was able to see the entire system installed in a period of two days. But the period of time will really depend. You should also take into consideration the signing of contracts, getting the approval from the electric company in your area, take note that the professionals will also be doing a survey of your home and area to see if it is able to maximize the use of solar panels.

Now another common concern is how much the entire project would really cost. As I mentioned I got mine for around thirty thousand dollars in total. I did the math and the hardware alone accounted for sixty percent of the total cost, meaning that the remaining forty percent of the costs will be for other things like the installation, wiring, and other stuff including the labor. Yes the total cost is quite a lot but I would say every penny is worth it considering this is clean energy and over time I will be able to save on the energy bill.
