Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . You’ve settled on adding a solar energy system to your house. What’s your next move? Thanks to our short list below, getting started with solar in Holdrege is easy. But if you ever have questions, feel free to give us a call at 308-995-8177. Step 1: Call Durable Service in Holdrege for a consultation, or make your appointment online. We’ll walk you through our detailed planning checklist to determine whether your home meets our SunSource® installation requirements. Step 2: Find out if your roof has enough space and gets enough sun. Each solar panel needs 15 square feet of surface area. Our professionals can help you decide how many modules you will need or want. Additionally, your roof needs to be mostly clear of shade from trees or other objects. Southern exposure is ideal, and our techs will perform tests to discover your monthly energy potential. Step 3: Look into possible building restrictions. Some Holdrege neighborhoods and Homeowner’s Associations may require you to submit your solar power plans prior to installation. Step 4: Upgrade your internet service. You’ll need a constant internet connection and combined with a broadband router to utilize the SunSource performance monitoring service. Step 5: Find answers to all utility-related questions. Your representative at Durable Service will check the grid power supplied by the utility company and test your home’s distribution panel to make sure you have the required specifications. You may want to call your utility company and see if a net-metering program is available. Net-metering enables you to receive credit for a portion of the electricity generated by your solar energy system. The utility company should also provide information on whether your solar products will qualify for rebates or incentives*. There’s lots to do to prepare for a SunSource® Home Energy System, but after it’s installed you’ll love watching your utility bills decrease. Want to get an idea of your savings beforehand? Call Durable Service at 308-995-8177 if you have additional questions about getting started with solar. *Note: Most rebates and incentives that make a solar energy system more affordable are only available when you’re system is grid-tied.
