In Home Solar Consultation
I will first check your roof via google maps to see if it qualifies for our program and can answer basic questions for you.
If your roof qualifies, I would then set up a consultation with a local Portland based SolarCity consultant (or someone in your region if SolarCity has a warehouse there.) They will go over your current electric bill with you and leave you with a pdf telling you what offset, efficiency, cost, tax incentives you're eligible for, and answer any questions you may have. You have them for an hour and a half to ask any questions.
If you are curious about solar, this is the best way to get the figures specific to your home.
The consultation and information is absolutely free, the majority of solar companies do this.
Solar works in Oregon! Gasp! Seriously though, if your roof qualifies, its usually a no-brainer.
If you are unfamiliar with SolarCity feel free to check out the website @ solarcity.com
We're the nations largest solar provider with over 60% of the residential solar in the USA.
We warranty the roof for 10 years and our system for 20 years, replacing any and all broken components including the inverter. We also have an app that allows you to monitor your system production in real time. Our panels are far sleeker than competitors.
SolarCity merged with Tesla back in November of 2016 and will be offering the solarroof during the summer of 2017. If you don't need a reroof anytime soon, panels are going to be worth your while. Take advantage of the tax incentives while you have the chance in OR.
Training & Qualifications
I work for solarcity as a "Field Energy Specialist" which is a glorified term for "secretary"! I check rooftops for homeowners and set consultations if the roof qualifies and the homeowner is curious for more information.
