Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . You’ve settled on adding a solar energy system to your house. Now what? Thanks to our simple list, getting started with solar in Baltimore is a breeze. But if you have additional questions, just give us a call at 410-355-6010. Step 1: Call Quality Refrigeration in Baltimore for a consultation, or set one up online. We’ll go through our detailed planning checklist to determine whether your home meets our SunSource® installation requirements. Step 2: Determine if your roof is big enough and gets enough sun. Each solar panel requires 15 square feet of surface area. Our professionals can help you determine how many modules you will need or want for your house. Additionally, your roof needs to be relatively clear of shade from trees or other objects. Southern exposure is best, and our techs will perform tests to discover your monthly energy potential. Step 3: Look into possible building restrictions. Some Baltimore neighborhoods and Homeowner’s Associations may ask you to submit your solar power installation plans ahead of time. Step 4: Upgrade your internet service. You’ll need an internet connection that’s always on and paired with a broadband router to take advantage of the SunSource performance monitoring service. Step 5: Find answers to all utility-related questions. Your technician from Quality Refrigeration will check the grid power supplied by the utility company and look at your home’s distribution panel to make sure you meet the product specifications. You may want to check with your utility company and see if a net-metering program exists. Net-metering allows you to receive credit for extra electricity generated by your solar energy system. The utility company can also tell you 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 after it’s installed you’ll love watching your utility bills shrink. Want to get an idea of your savings beforehand? Call Quality Refrigeration at 410-355-6010 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.
