Getting Started With Lennox® Solar Solutions is Easy . Adding solar-powered products to your home is a good investment that will help you become more eco-friendly and less dependent on the utility company. But it will require a little preparation before the system can be installed. We’ve listed the steps below to help you make your home solar-ready. Step 1: Schedule a consultation with KDM Service Corporation in Tuscaloosa. Just call or set up an appointment using our online scheduler , and we’ll walk you through our detailed solar planning checklist and determine whether your home meets requirements for a SunSource® Home Energy System installation. Step 2: Determine the space and sunlight available on your roof. We install solar modules on your roof, meaning the roof needs enough space that’s nearly shade-free to place the panels. Each module takes up 15 square feet of roof space. Your KDM Service Corporation representative will help you decide how many solar panels you need to install to have enough energy for your home. Step 3: Investigate possible building restrictions. If you’re a member of a neighborhood or Tuscaloosa Homeowner’s Association, you might need to show them your solar energy system installation plans ahead of time. Step 4: Make sure your internet is solar-ready. Don’t worry – the SunSource doesn’t necessitate a fancy new internet connection. It simply requires an internet connection with a broadband router that’s always on so you can take advantage of the system’s web-based performance monitoring capabilities. Step 5: Call your utility company to learn about solar programs and policies. Utility companies commonly have solar rebates and incentive programs to help reduce the cost of installing a solar energy system. You’ll also want to see if the utility offers net-metering, which will allow you to get credit for additional electricity your SunSource system generates. Our team can help you find and fill out these forms. With these easy steps, getting started with solar is a cinch . And we didn’t even mention the savings you’ll rack up once the system is in place. If you have other questions or concerns leading up to your solar product installation, just call KDM Service Corporation at 205-758-2703.
