Tips for Going Solar

  • Know your electricity consumption. By understanding your energy usage, you can assess how much you would like your solar system to generate — depending on your budget.
  • Understand how much you’ll pay. For a lease, this should include what your flat monthly payment will be each month of your contract.
  • Your contract should include an assessment of the average daily output of your system in kilowatt-hours (based on where you live and the size and position of your system).
  • Determine if your roof has adequate sun exposure during peak hours of the day. Tree shade can increase system costs and greatly reduce panel efficiency.
  • Consider leasing if the upfront costs of purchasing a solar system do not fit within your household budget. An NJR Home Services solar lease includes installation, maintenance, and monitoring of your solar system — with zero money down.
  • Find a reputable and experienced local installer.
  • Know your options if you have to move. Make sure the company offers a contract that is transferable to the next homeowner.
