The first step is submitting your energy bill to a reputable solar company or a sales rep you know and trust selling for a reputable installer. This is where you will want to do your research. With solar being such a hot topic, there are a lot of people trying to jump on the money train here. That means there are a lot of one man operations and fly-by-night companies coming out of the wood works.
One thing that most homeowners never ask is if their installer owns a building near them. Our installation partners at Titan solar power own buildings in most major markets and rent them in the areas where real estate is not available that they have pockets of customers in to ensure that everyone gets the best service possible.
There are a lot of other things you will want to understand, but we will touch on those in other episodes.
Once you know what company you are going to go with, the process is fairly simple. No matter who you are going with, they are going to need a copy of your most recent energy bill. The most important thing that they or ourselves need to see is the graph that shows your 12-month electricity usage in your home. This is what allows our team of engineers at Titan to create a custom system for your unique situation to offset you and your family’s energy usage. In many scenarios we have been able to save our customers on average 10-50% on their energy bill as well as locking them into their rate for 25 years and then eliminating their bill afterwards - there aren't even any pre-payment penalties. All this with a 25-year guarantee on the entire system and the roof penetrations.
After your proposal is finalized, their will be an approval process through their funding partner. At Wimberley Solar, we have chosen to partner with Good Leap to get our customers the best rates and programs available. We are able to consistently get approvals for people with 600 credit scores and above for 25 year financing starting at 1.49% interest. We will do an episode soon diving deeper into the financing plans available!
After you have received your approval, the company will need to collect a handful of documents from you. These documents include but are not limited to a signed proposal, completed loan documents, a signed installation agreement, and an HOA form where applicable.
Typically after all documents are collected, your installer will send out a surveyor to ensure that everything in the proposal is correct before permits are collected and the installation process begins.
After the site survey, the permits that I mentioned will be collected. These vary based on the regulations where you live. Many installation companies will cover some permits for you up to a limit and then invoice you for the remaining amount.
Something to note. Many of these fly by night solar companies that are trying to ride the money train will try bypassing the permitting process to get your glass on the roof faster. This is something to be extremely wary of. In most instances this can lead to all kinds of headaches and it is simply always best to ensure that your installers are facilitating a clean build.
After permitting is completed, your installation will be scheduled and in many cases is complete in one day. For larger systems or complicated installs, this can go up to 5 days or more. At Wimberley Solar our customers have access to the Titan installation app so that they track the progress of their installation from the start, so they are always in the loop on all deals large or small!
After the installation is complete you will schedule an inspection with the utility company so that the final connection to the grid can be made.
After the city inspection is completed, the utility company will need to be scheduled to install your net metering system. This is what allows them to buy back your electricity when you are overproducing in order to use the credits to offset any nighttime usage etc.
Something to note is that the city inspection and net metering installation time frames are completely out of control of your installer, so be patient with them if there are delays during these phases!
After that, it’s time to celebrate! You have officially gone solar!
"It's official. We're in an energy crisis, and it's not likely to get better soon. Every day it's becoming more clear that our dependence on fossil fuels is part of a system that must be changed. Harnessing the immense power of the Texas sun for clean, sustainable energy is one logical solution. Our local electric cooperative, PEC, has contributed to the problem through lack of support for technologies that replace sources like coal and oil.
The Wimberley area has been feeling the effects of continuing dependence on fossil fuels for some time. More than one homeowner or business in the Hill Country has been wishing lately their electrical power came from a renewable source like sun or wind.
Energy costs are skyrocketing and oil companies are making record profits. The president of OPEC, Chakib Khelil, warned the price of crude could hit $200 a barrel. He's probably right, despite bouncing recession-era prices.
And we've seen with the largest oil spill in history off our shores, BP's Deepwater Horizon, that the costs reach far higher than just the price we see at the pump.
Added to that is the fact that visitors now look twice at the astronomical costs of fuel for what was once considered a short drive to the Hill Country - and Wimberley depends heavily on tourism.
Hill Country residents are also become more aware of the fragility of a lifestyle dependent on unsustainable energy sources. Going green is no longer just for "tree-huggers," but has become a goal for every Texan with awareness of the inconvenient truths of our rapidly diminishing resources.
Wimberley is feeling the pain and it's easy to see why those who work and live in the area are looking for ways to cope more efficiently with the energy challenge..."
"Direct conversion of solar radiation to electricity (photovoltaics and concentrating solar power) is an obvious solution to the energy problem in Central Texas, converting heat from the infamously hot Texas sun to a priceless asset. Scaling up the use of solar energy is a no-brainer, it would seem." "
