Getting Started with Solar Solutions has Never Been Easier. You’ve settled on adding a solar energy system. What’s your next move? Thanks to a short list we’ve made for you here, getting started with solar in Waxahachie is easy. But if you ever have questions, feel free to give us a call at 972-763-5448. Step 1: Call C&C Refrigeration Inc. in Waxahachie for a consultation, or make your appointment online. We’ll go through our detailed planning checklist to figure out whether your home meets our SunSource® installation requirements. Step 2: Determine whether your roof is big enough and gets enough sun. Each solar panel takes up 15 square feet of surface area. Our team can help you decide how many modules you will need or want for your home. In addition, your roof needs to be mostly clear of shade from trees or other objects. Southern exposure is ideal, and our professionals will perform tests to determine your monthly energy potential. Step 3: Look into possible building restrictions. Some Waxahachie neighborhoods and Homeowner’s Associations may require you to submit your solar power plans before the system is installed. Step 4: Upgrade your internet service. You’ll need internet that’s always connected and combined with a broadband router to take advantage of the SunSource performance monitoring service. Step 5: Find answers to all utility-related questions. Your professional from C&C Refrigeration Inc. will check the grid power supplied by the utility company and look at your home’s distribution panel to make sure you have the required specifications. You may want to contact your utility company and see if a net-metering program exists. Net-metering lets you 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 lots to do to prepare for a SunSource® Home Energy System, but after it’s installed you’ll love watching your utility bills decrease. Want an idea of how much you could save? Call C&C Refrigeration Inc. at 972-763-5448 if you have additional 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.
