When looking into Solar you should get at least 3 bids before making your decision.
A good company will ask for at least one year of your energy usage prior to coming to your home. Having this information allows the company to assess whether or not you might be using too much energy and if so, tries to address the cause of the high usage. Sometimes it is something as simple as upgrading a pool pump or adjusting heating or cooling zones that may help drop your usage significantly.
After we look into how you use energy and/or if there is anything we can do to make your home or business more energy efficient THEN we start figuring out what size system is needed to cover that usage and bring your energy bill as close to zero as we can. Why put a huge, expensive system on your home if you can reduce your energy usage first and then create a smaller system?
More and more people are becoming interested in solar domestic hot water, pool, spa and space heating to replace their propane and natural gas usage (Solar Thermal). Bidding these types of systems varies but, again, a good company will ask for your current usage and bill for at least one year and go from there.
