Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . Adding solar-powered equipment to your home is a great investment that will help you become more environmentally friendly and less dependent on the utility company. But it will require a little preparation before the system can be installed. We’ve mapped out the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with Ken Parker Service Inc in Greenville. Just call or book your appointment using our online scheduler , and we’ll go through our detailed solar planning checklist and determine whether your home meets requirements for a SunSource® Home Energy System installation. Step 2: Determine the space and sunlight available on your roof. We install solar modules on your roof, so the roof will need enough space that’s almost shade-free to place the panels. Each module requires 15 square feet of roof space. Your Ken Parker Service Inc representative will help determine how many solar panels you need to install to have enough energy for your home. Step 3: Investigate possible building restrictions. If you’re a member of a neighborhood or Greenville Homeowner’s Association, you could need to submit your solar energy system installation plans ahead of time. Step 4: Make sure your internet is solar-ready. Don’t worry – the SunSource doesn’t necessitate a fancy new internet connection. It only requires an internet connection with a broadband router that’s always on so you can make use of the system’s web-based performance monitoring capabilities. Step 5: Call your utility company to learn about solar programs and policies. Utility companies usually have solar rebates and incentive programs to help decrease the cost of installing a solar energy system. You’ll also want to know if the utility offers net-metering, which will let you get credit for surplus electricity your SunSource system generates. Our experts can help you find and fill out these forms. With these few steps, getting started with solar is a breeze . And we didn’t even mention the savings you’ll add up after the system is in place. If you have other questions or concerns prior to your solar product installation, just call Ken Parker Service Inc at 903-246-4877.
