Finding the right solar company for you can be a difficult task. Choosing the right installer is critical for the longevity of your solar system. You are not only choosing a company at the time of installation but also for the lifetime care of your solar system. Here are five things to look for when choosing a solar installer.
Tesla sets itself apart from other companies by continuously updating the software of customers’ products remotely to include entirely new features instead of forcing consumers to buy a new version with upgraded features.
Clean, Accessible, and Local
It’s no secret that solar energy can reduce both your carbon footprint and your monthly energy bill. What you might not know is that these benefits aren’t limited to those who install solar panels on their property.
Powerwall is available to anyone, with or without solar energy. Tesla describes Powerwall as a “rechargeable home battery system that stores energy from solar or from the grid and makes it available on demand.” The prospect of generating and storing your own energy is incredibly appealing– especially when you consider the power outages that come with Nor’easters, hurricanes, and other bad weather conditions. In March alone, Massachusetts has been hit by 4 Nor’easters. The first Nor’easter led to 450,000 power outages, the second 360,000 power outages, and the third resulted in over 200,000. Powerwall can keep your house–and your life–running normally when the grid shuts down.
Electric vehicle ownership is quickly growing in Massachusetts. This growth is related to the symbiotic relationship with the solar energy industry. The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection collects data on electric vehicles (EVs), and they have seen a speedy increase. “The number of electric vehicles in the state has grown from 782 as of July 31, 2013, to 3,770 as of March 31, 2017. The number of plug-in hybrids, which can also utilize gasoline, has increased from 1,034 to 5,701 during that time frame.”
