The size of the solar system you should install depends on your energy needs to run your home throughout the year.

By making your home more energy efficient, you can improve the performance of your solar energy system.

In fact, it is important to remember that every $1 spent on energy efficiency = $3 - $5 on installed solar!

Because energy efficiency goes hand in hand with solar energy systems, we recommend the first step is getting a Home Performance Test through our partnership with Focus on Energy.

What is involved with a Home Performance Test?
