Looking to install a brand new Maui solar system?
Many homeowners on the island of Maui have already chosen to go solar. And, with electricity rates on the rise, we estimate that a lot more people will soon ‘join’ the trend.
But how exactly can you go solar? It is difficult? Is it simple?
Don’t worry, if you’re looking for information on how to install a Maui solar system, we’ve got you covered! Here are the 3 main steps you need to take to go green and stop worrying about the cost of electricity.
1. Find a reliable company to install your Maui solar system
If you’ve decided to install a Maui PV system, it means you’re already familiar with the benefits of going solar. If that’s the case, the first step is to find a reliable solar company on Maui to take care of the installation.
You can start your search for a solar installer by simply asking your friends and neighbors if they can recommend someone they trust. You can also find out if there are any solar installers in your area by simply doing an online search for “solar installers near me on Maui”. Make sure each company on your list of potential installers is licensed, insured and has a top notch reputation!
Once you narrow down a few candidates, make sure you contact them and ask about the specifics of installing a Maui solar system for your home.
The company you choose should send over a representative to evaluate the situation and propose a design for you. Keep in mind that, because each home has a different layout and every installation is unique, you should expect to get a different estimate than your friends and neighbors.
2. Compare your options for financing your residential PV system
Unless you have the cash laying around to pay for your system upfront, you should now start looking into solar financing options.
A lot of homeowners choose to apply for a solar loan to finance their PV project. Banks, credit unions, independent financing companies and even solar installers may provide loans to cover the cost of your PV installation.
However, looking for a solar loan provider is not the only thing you should do at this stage. Going solar is still a great way to get a tax break so, if you decide to invest in a PV system for your home, make sure you do your research and find out more about how federal and state tax incentives work and how you can access them.
Keep in mind though, that the 30% tax credit starts declining in 2020. Therefore, if you’re thinking about going green, make sure act fast!
3. Go solar!
After your plan to go solar is finalized and after you’ve found a way to finance your new system, you can schedule the date for the installation!
Installing a Maui solar system can take anywhere from a day to a few days, tops. Once your system is up and running, all that’s left to do is start saving on your electric bill!
