When is the best time for home solar panel installation? Always! It doesn’t matter what season it is, because one your panels are installed, you start being more energy efficient. If you planted an apple tree, you wouldn’t expect a bushel of apples the first year, and the same applies to home solar panel installation – you could be saving money on electricity, so why not start now?
If you’re considering solar now, you shouldn’t wait until the spring to start the process. As solar becomes more popular, many states and municipalities are reducing their solar incentives. Some utilities are also changing the way they compensate new solar homeowners for their excess solar power.
Some homeowners start shopping for solar in the summer because they think that solar panels don’t make electricity in the winter. However, your solar panels can generate power year-round. If you have your residential solar energy installation system in the fall, you can enjoy the financial benefits of solar as soon as your panels are connected. Plus, like most electronics, solar panels actually operate more efficiently when it’s cold outside.
The best solar energy system is the one designed specifically for you. Your home solar panel installation system is designed in-house with Lifetime Solar from an initial concept based on your free consultation. Our engineers, drawing on years of solar experience, finalize the design to optimize solar production for your home or business. Our systems are designed to withstand the harsh weather conditions of the Midwest while providing robust and reliable power production.
Have you considered solar for your home but assumed it was too expensive? Or are you waiting until the technology improves and the cost goes down? If so, wait no longer: now is the time to jump on the residential solar panel installation bandwagon. Technology has advanced markedly, and as more people have seen the wisdom of installing solar electric panels on their homes, economies of scale and efficiencies in manufacturing have brought the price down by more than 70% since 2009.
Once upon a time, you needed a lot of cash to pay the big upfront cost of solar panels, which could cost tens of thousands of dollars. Besides the steep drop in price in recent years, a number of rebate and financing programs have put solar in reach for far more people. The US federal rebate of 30% was extended through 2019, after which it will fall by 4 % per year and then get phased out in 2022.
