When you size my system based on my home, can you give me different options on sizes and costs and how they will affect the amount of energy I will use from the grid?
How much will the installation cost? Do I have to pay anything up front? Are there financing options or monthly fees?
How much of a reduction will I receive on my monthly SMECO bills? (Summer, winter, spring, and fall will be different based on the angle of the sun, the amount of energy used, and the amount of energy you produce.)
If leasing, what are the details of the lease agreement? Number of years? Interest rate?
What happens if I sell my home? Is the lease transferable to a new homeowner?
What if my roof needs new shingles or I want the system removed, is there a buyout?
Do I need special homeowner’s insurance?
Will I need any upgrades to my electric system? If so, who will pay SMECO or an electrician to make the upgrades and how much will they cost?
Can the solar panels be installed anywhere on my property or only on my roof?
Will I receive any tax credits?
How many systems have you installed in the area and do you have references that I can check? Please provide names and contact information for local SMECO customers for whom you’ve done PV installations.
