Ready for solar - Read This

I’ll bet you didn’t think your fridge, TV or any device in your home might notice a difference in how it gets power…or did you? Well, it doesn’t matter. Electricity is electricity. Doesn’t matter where it comes from. Now, if solar has been a consideration for you, this is the time to get a clipboard audit. Determine what your true need is going to be, what you can do to minimize the number of panels, and maybe move towards ordering solar to take advantage of the full tax credit benefits in 2019. Next year it is even less. Give it some serious thought and make that decision today, before it’s too late to get it installed. And if PG&E is still making you nervous, there’s always generator power to consider. Hear how proper wiring makes the process so much easier.

A very good call indeed.

Before the Tax Credit Changes - Go Solar + Battery Backup

So, if you’re giving consideration to solar before the tax credit changes, you’re going to want to seriously consider battery backup as well. They’re both eligible for the credit when you do it right. And that’s the key consideration. How much backup and energy you need on the front side of it all is a big question.
