Many people assume summer is the best time to buy solar due to the warm summer days and hot, baking sun. However, spring is the best time. Although anytime is truly a wonderful time to install solar, spring installations come with added benefits. First, solar panels produce more efficiently at cooler temperatures. Spring allows for bright, sunny days, where your solar system is cranking without the harsh summer sun that is hard on electronics. Additionally, the bright sun of spring allows your system to produce much more energy than your household or business is expanding. Del Sol Energy makes going solar so simple that there is no reason to overlook the added benefits of a spring solar installation.
From a financial perspective, tax time is a great time for home improvements. As tax refunds provide spare cash to reinvest in your home, many people opt to invest in green energy on their homes. This initial investment means long-term savings.
A third idea to consider is that many people wait until summer to get their system installed. Not only are they missing out on the great production time of a spring installation, there is a greater chance their install will get backlogged due to the radical influx of summer solar installations. It makes sense to plan ahead of the crowds and get your system installed before the rush. And while everyone else is either shutting down their air conditioners in the heat while they wait for the new solar system to be installed, you will be sitting cool enjoying the benefits of your new system. Plus, it is summer time and summer often means time to unwind, enjoy time off work with your family and relax. The dog days of summer are not nearly as inviting when you must spend the days exploring solar companies and sitting on the phone with your power company. Getting the panels up now implies you don’t need to consider it when the summer months come around. Planning a spring install means you are impeccably positioned to take advantage of the summer sun. You can kick back, relax, enjoy the sun and enjoy the sun working for you – all while watching your electric bill dissolve into the sun.
