The Big Question: Which is the best Solar System for you? Part 1
Anyone who has ever purchased a solar system at any point will be able to relate to this question and how long it took them to settle with an answer. Use of the word “settle” is very much intentional because well, unfortunately there is not one answer or one brand or one installer that is “better” for your roof. When I talk to individuals who have finally decided to get a solar system, I am both surprised and disappointed by how discouraged they become in the process of deciding this.
To understand what the best solar system for you is vital to know which is the system or products you need to stay away from. To know about the best suited system for you or rather your house, it is extremely important to understand who you are buying it from because your Solar retailer would be someone distancing you from making a bad decision. Now, you would say that Solar is just a commodity, and you would want to shop around. You may also argue about exploring the plethora of information available on the internet about the different products, their technologies, advantages, disadvantages, price etc. however it is not enough. Not because there is less information about them but because it is inadequate for you as consumer to make a reasonable decision.
To address this “Big” question it is perhaps important to understand that nuances of the whole process. From the time you seed a thought for going Solar to commission a system, a series of articles in the form of this blog will try to address obvious questions for any consumer. Although, these articles are not meant to criticize or promote any product, I will try cover popular product and try to break any myths logically as well as technically.
