7 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD NOT GET SOLAR PANELS
The first question we should answer is; why is a solar company explaining why homeowners should not install solar panels on their homes? The reason is simple, we want to sell our products responsibly. Yes, there are a few solar companies out there that will sell solar panels to anyone and everyone; however, that is not our mission nor why we became a turn-key solar installation contractor.
So, we created this document to help customers make a more informed decision by outlining the minimum requirements for purchasing a solar panel installation. After reading this document, if you still want to install solar panels on your home or if you have more questions, we're ready to help you proceed. At the bottom of this document there will be a number of ways for you to get in touch with us.
We hope this document is helpful to you and if it helps you to discover that solar panels are not right for you at this time, then it is better to find out now than after you've invested money in something that you will not benefit from because of your current situation.
- If your average monthly electric bills are lower than $100 per month
- The more electricity you use and the more you pay for it, the more that you can save by switching to solar. (Your past electric bills will help you with this calculation)
- If your credit score is below 650
- If you need financing to get solar panels installed on your home, you'll need, at least, a 620 credit-score to obtain financing for the installation. (Please check your credit score to see what your current credit is)
- If your home is in a location that doesn't have enough daily sunlight
- Solar panels do not work in the shade; therefore, you will need enough daily sunlight to produce enough electricity for your needs. (Satellite images of your address may be used by our engineers during this evaluation)
- If you do not own your own home
- To get solar panels installed on a house, your name will be required to be listed on the deed.
- If your roof isn't suitable for solar panels
- The roof age, material, size, tilt, and orientation will determine whether or not your roof is ready for a solar panel installation. (This can only be determined by a visit to your house by one of our team members)
- If you would prefer to lease or rent your electricity instead of owning it
- When you get your electricity from your local utility company, you are basically renting or leasing your electricity, which is not much different than if you were renting your home. The biggest difference is, after it is paid for, you own it.
- If you are looking for a source of free or no-cost electricity
- Some solar power companies will advertise that solar power is "free"; unfortunately, that is not true. While there is no cost for receiving the energy the sun produces, there are charges for the equipment to convert that energy into usable electricity.
If none of the above reasons apply to you then solar panels are probably a great investment for you. If you would like to find out more information such as cost, savings, how many solar panels you’ll need, how long does it take to install, and more.

The first question most people want to know is, how much will a solar panel system cost me? Unfortunately, this question cannot be answered until our solar panel professional engineer evaluates all of your information. This will require an in-depth phone conversation and a visit to your residence to examine your roof, roof angle, direction of sun and other information that will help us custom create a solar panel system specifically for your home. Since no two homes are alike, there are no “one system fits all” solar panel systems available from any solar company, and this is why pricing cannot be given until we know more about you and your home.
