#DIY | Do It Yourself Solar Installations

Solar panels are a smart investment for modern, eco-conscious homeowners, but many people feel inhibited by the cost of installation. Fortunately, materials are starting to decrease in price and installation is becoming more manageable. At Modernize, we are watching homeowners reap the rewards of solar energy while saving thousands of dollars by tackling large scope projects like this on their own. If you are relatively handy, have a Smart Phone or Internet access, and are ready to harness the sun’s abundant energy for your home, it’s time to consider DIY solar installation. Know How Are you comfortable working with wiring? Safety is always the first priority in any home improvement project. Make sure you are well-versed with the dos and don’ts of high voltage wiring before attempting this project. Determining the correct panel placement and angle to harness maximum energy is pivotal. Precision is key to making this project worth your time and money. In addition to handy know-how, you also need to be prepared to navigate compliance laws and obtain permits before beginning your project. If you have the time and resources to do your own research and legwork, you will save the cost of hiring a company paying multiple people to perform these duties. Help From The Internet If you have Internet access, you have help with your installation. There really is an app for almost anything. Search for online calculators to determine the size of the kit that you will need, based on information found on your utility bills.   Measuring Solar Energy Savings Once your solar panels are installed, you will want to see how long it takes to recoup the cost of the materials. While you will save thousands of dollars by installing your solar panels yourself, this project will still be costly up front—but it won’t be long before you break even, and possibly profit from the investment.   After installing home solar, you may be eligible for a federal tax credit, and possibly a state tax credit. Be sure to research your state’s requirements, as some do require that the installation is performed by licensed installers. If these incentives are awarded, a sizable percentage may be recouped right off the bat. Finally, the value of your home will increase substantially with the addition of solar panels. A buyer’s offer may pay for your project in full if the attractive feature of energy-saving, money-saving solar panels sparks a bidding war. Research Make sure you have all of your research done before spending a dime on this project. You want to be sure that you are capable of handling the project in its entirety....

How we’re improving the experience to buy clean energy systems

After financial reasons being the primary reason most people don’t have solar panels or wind generators for their homes or businesses, the process of producing your own energy could be confusing for many first time customers that many just give up! Buying a clean energy system is so new for most people, unlike buying shoes which Americans have done many times in their life times. Historically people never had a choice, you get an electric bill and you pay the dollar amount on the bill, no questions asked, now people have a choice and customers are overwhelmed by the choices in the market. The GoGreenSolar.com understands that the process of producing your own clean green energy is much too difficult and we focus on making the experience of buying clean energy systems as easy and educational as possible. We typically start by: 1. Together, we analyze your electric bills, to figure out your usage. 2. Figure out your energy goals and help you develop a plan to meet your goals. 3. Recommend products and services that help you reach the goals you have set for yourself. We help you “reduce and produce” meaning not only do we teach you how to become more energy efficient but we help you produce energy as well, thus reducing the overall upfront cost of green energy. We understand that you have many questions please head over to our community in which you can leverage the experience of others to help you get to your clean energy...
