Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . You’ve settled on adding a solar energy system to your home. Now what? Thanks to our simple list, getting started with solar in Hattiesburg is easy. But if you ever have questions, don’t hesitate to give us a call at 601-268-3486. Step 1: Call Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning in Hattiesburg for a consultation, or schedule one online. We’ll go through our detailed planning checklist to figure out whether your home meets our SunSource® installation requirements. Step 2: Determine whether your roof has enough space and gets enough sun. Each solar panel requires 15 square feet of surface area. Our team can help you decide how many modules you will need or want for your home. In addition, your roof needs to be mostly clear of shade from trees or other objects. Southern exposure is best, and we will perform tests to discover your monthly energy potential. Step 3: Look into possible building restrictions. Some Hattiesburg neighborhoods and Homeowner’s Associations may need 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 technician from Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning will check the grid power supplied by the utility company and look at your home’s distribution panel to make sure you have all the necessary specifications. You may want to check with your utility company and see if a net-metering program is available. Net-metering lets you receive credit for extra 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 a lot to do to prepare for a SunSource® Home Energy System, but once it’s installed you’ll love watching your utility bills get smaller. Curious about how much you can save? Call Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning at 601-268-3486 if you have any 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.
