Guide to Going Solar

Taking the first step to going solar is exciting! Once complete, you will first know what your best options are when choosing a solar energy system. Second, you will be able to competently size your system and identify whether it will be a roof-top or ground mounted system. Third, you will identify and choose whether you need a grid-tie, off-gird or hybrid with battery back-up. Finally, you will decide if you will choose your own systems components, or let Solaris design a system for you.

Four Simple Steps

Our guide will help walk you through all the steps you will need to take in surveying, evaluating, planning and installing the best photovoltaic system that will best suit your needs.

Analyzing your electricity bill is key, and lowering your usage where possible will prove worthwhile. Deciding whether the system will be a roof-top or ground mount is important for different cost and maintenance concerns.  It will also be important learn and understand your local, state, and federal incentives/rebates available, and how they might affect your installation.

Understanding what type of system you need is important in gathering information on accurate hard and soft cost estimates. Grid-tied, off-grid, and battery back-up systems are the three main types of solar energy systems. Your installation site will need one of these to best suit your needs.
