To start, there are a few questions you can ask yourself to help determine if solar is right for you:
If you own a single family home and are not part of a Home Owner’s Association (HOA) requiring approval for external home improvements, adding solar panels can be a simple decision.
If you are part of an HOA or Historic District, or own a condominium, do not despair. Hilton Head Solar has extensive experience in obtaining approval for solar from HOA and in Historic Districts, and can provide you with the support you need to obtain approval to install solar on your home.
If you own a condo or townhouse with a condominium ownership structure, you might not have exclusive rights to your roof. Hilton Head Solar can research your ownership structure, and assist you in securing rights to place solar panels on your roof.
While solar panels love sunlight, you may be surprised to find that solar panels work even if your roof doesn’t receive 100% sunlight. Ideally, your home will have a southern, eastern, or western facing roof available for the solar panels. It also will have a pitch less than 12:12 (45 degrees) and will be relatively free from obstructions such as chimneys, skylights and/or dormers. Although trees and other obstructions could affect your solar output, Hilton Head Solar can help identify just how much sun you’ll need. If you’re in doubt, give us a call and we’ll happily determine if solar is right for you.
Your current electric bill can help us determine how many solar panels you need and how much you can save by installing solar panels. When you go solar, you effectively install a small power plant with no moving parts on your roof. This can replace the power plants your utility company uses to provide you with electricity. With South Carolina’s electric rates being above national averages, there’s a very good chance you could see significant savings by installing a solar system.
Solar system costs will vary based on the number of panels used, the location where they’re installed, and the type of panels you select. Hilton Head Solar will estimate the cost of installing your solar system and determine your system’s specific return on investment. We will include all incentives you’re eligible to receive and offer financing options if you’d prefer to pay for your system over time and avoid an up-front cost. Our financing solutions do not require a down payment, so you can get started with nothing out of pocket.
