Free Solar Panels
Residents in select states can get solar panels installed on their homes for free. Using government incentives and new financing techniques a lot of solar companies are offering $0 down installations. Not everyone can get free solar panels however. There are basic qualifications that need to be met in order to receive free solar panels. The main factors in this decision include the amount of electricity you currently consume on a monthly basis and the amount of solar energy your home is able to produce.
The amount of electricity you consume is an important factor because when you get your solar panels for free you are actually “leasing” them from the solar company. You sign a long term contract with the energy company which locks you into an electricity rate for the next 20 years. This may sound off putting at first, but the reality of the situation is that the rate that you are locked in to is typically less than what you currently pay for electricity. With electricity costs rising every year you’ll end up saving a ton of money locking in lower rates for the next 20 years. So, the more electricity you consume the better of a candidate you are for free solar panels since you’ll be paying larger monthly electricity bills. The important thing to remember here is that you’ll be paying LESS than what you already pay.
Your roof is the other important factor in getting free solar panels. The type of roof, the direction your roof faces, the size of your roof and your roof’s surroundings are all important. The solar company needs to make sure that your home will be able to provide an adequate amount of power.
If your roof isn’t large enough to fit an adequate amount of panels, your roof isn’t ideal. In addition, there shouldn’t be any large structures or trees around your roof that cast a shadow on your roof. Any time there is shade on a solar panel it won’t be generating power. Also, the directions your roof faces is important. Since the sun always moves from the East to the West in the sky there are optimal ways for roofs to be aligned to ensure the most output from your panels.
All in all the programs to get free solar panels installed in your home is a great, low up front cost to get solar energy in your home. In the end you’ll have cheaper energy, a reduced carbon footprint and increased home value.
