System size

Installing more solar panels help you save more money, right? False! It does help installers make more money as they charge you by system size, you actually lose money by paying for a system larger than you need.

The correct system size is based on your electric bill, your rooftop area and weather at your location.

We help you determine the correct system size.

Where to install

Figuring out the energy production potential on different sections of your roof is key to maximizing your savings with solar.

We help you determine the energy capacity of different sections of your roof. You choose where to put the solar panels. Learn more below.

Panel technology selection

Solar Panels constitute about 80% of hardware cost of solar installation.

There are different technologies available in the market, with different energy efficiency, degradation rate etc.

Most of them are warranted to provide power for 25 years but not all of them do.

We help you determine the best technology for you.

Select Installer & track progress

Selection of an installer is the last step but the most crucial step in this process.

We help you connect to the best installers in your location based on your specifications, the quality of their work, the technology they use and the time they would take to finish the installation.

Solar radiation at your location

Based on your location, we use Typical Meteorological Year data (TMY) which is annual average weather data that are consistent with the long-term averages for this location. This data provides us hourly average solar radiation. More clear and sunny days in a year lead to greater solar benefit. For example, yearly average solar radiation on a 20 degrees tilt, south facing roof near you is kWHr/m2, we will help you harness this energy. Learn More

Your available roof area

Proper selection of roof area to install the solar panels is an important step to maximize the conversion of solar radiation into electricity.

Solar radiation falling on a slanted surface like your roof depends on the pitch (slope) of the roof, direction your roof section point to and of course the available area of the different sections on the roof.

As a rule of thumb, the south facing sections of your roof will produce more solar electricity.

An example of an output of the roof area tool
An example of an output of the roof area tool: section 1 and 5 are brightest implying highest solar intensity, whereas, sections 4 and 6 are darker implying lowest solar intensity respectively

Federal and your state policies

Uncle Sam wants you to go solar! Fed government offers a straight 30% tax credit for your solar installation.

The next and most important is a state policy called Net Metering: this enables you to sell electricity back to the grid when you generate more electricity during bright sunny days. This helps offsets your electric consumption during the time you do not have enough solar radiation.

On top of these two policies, some states have additional incentives that makes your solar electricity even more lucrative. Learn More
