Questions & Answers
Motivation for installing solar panels:
“When we first moved into our new house back in 2015, I was interested in solar, but it wasn’t until the pandemic when my wife suggested we get a hot tub, which raised concerns about the potential increase in power consumption and the impact on our electric bill.
Once the solar was installed, I also wanted a battery and generator system in case we lost power, which has been happening more frequently.”
Result of Installing solar panels:
“Although my system has not been running for a full year yet, I am still generating more electricity than predicted by Green Power Energy, which I am very pleased with. I can now turn up the heat nicely in the house this winter and not worry about my bill increasing.
It feels great to be energy independent, and my system can support my current and future energy needs, especially if I get an electric car in the next few years.”
Considerations in choosing Green Power Energy as your installer:
“I had a quote from a different solar installer who said I didn’t need a new roof before getting my solar installation, but it was 18 years old and showing signs of wear.
When I looked on the internet and saw that Green Power Energy had a 5-star rating on EnergySage with lots of customers having positive experiences, I got a quote from them and they advised replacing the roof before installing solar to ensure they would last.”
Experience with Green Power Energy:
“Green Power gave the best advice, warranty, and coverage, so I felt reassured choosing them. Solar has worked out even better than I thought it would, and I want to share my positive experience with everyone.”
