Is solar power a good fit for my home?

Solar is cost effective for the majority of homeowners but here are a few things that determine how well solar will work in your home:

  1. You own your home
  2. Your roof is southern facing, with minimal shading, and in good condition (east and west orientation will work too)
  3. You have your own capital or good credit (if you are planning on financing your system)
  4. You plan on living at your current residence for at least the next 7-10 years
  5. You have the tax liability to utilize the 30% ITC
