How much sun shines on your roof?*

The performance of PV panels may be reduced by the shading effect due to trees, passing of clouds, neighboring buildings and any other means.

Is your roof less than 5 years old?*

Consider replacing a damaged or failing roof prior to a solar installation. There are costs involved with un‑installing and re‑installing a solar installation.

Does your home have at least 200 sq. ft. of uninterrupted roof space?*

Uninterrupted roof space is most efficient for a solar installation (100 square feet of roof space for every 1kW of solar). More complex rooftops can increase the installation cost and time.
