Getting Started with Solar Solutions has Never Been Easier. Adding solar-powered products to your home is a good investment that will help you become more environmentally responsible and less dependent on oil and gas. But it will require a little preparation prior to installing the system. We’ve outlined the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with Stan's Heating, Inc in Ontario. Just call or set up an appointment using our online scheduler , and we’ll walk you through our detailed solar planning checklist and discover whether your home meets requirements for a SunSource® Home Energy System installation. Step 2: Determine the space and sunlight available on your roof. We install solar modules on your roof, meaning the roof needs enough space that’s virtually shade-free to place the panels. Each module needs 15 square feet of roof space. Your Stan's Heating, Inc representative will help determine how many solar panels you need to install to have enough energy for your home. Step 3: Investigate possible building restrictions. If you’re a member of a neighborhood or Ontario Homeowner’s Association, you could need to submit your solar energy system installation plans ahead of time. Step 4: Make sure your internet is solar-ready. Don’t worry – the SunSource doesn’t need an elaborate new internet connection. It just requires an internet connection with a broadband router that’s never turns off so you can make use of the system’s web-based performance monitoring abilities. Step 5: Call your utility company to learn about solar programs and policies. Utility companies commonly have solar rebates and incentive policies to help offset the cost of installing a solar energy system. You’ll also want to ask if the utility offers net-metering, which will enable you to get credit for additional electricity your SunSource system generates. Our experts can help you find and fill out these forms. With these simple steps, getting started with solar is a breeze . We should also mention the savings you’ll add up after the system is in place.
