I’m about to build a house. Is that a good time to install solar?
Sincerely, Worried About Cost of Build
Dear Worried About Cost of Build,
That’s a great question!
The best time to install solar is when you’re building because you won’t be retrofitting your home for solar. If you know you’re going to have a renewable energy home, it’s best to design the house with solar in mind.
Though Icon Solar briefly discusses the matter of whether your house can be solarized on the website, I, Wanda your Wealth Warrior, wanted to clarify a few things including sun exposure and restrictions.
I’ve lived in Cincinnati for a long time. On a recent trip to California, I saw tons of solar panels. Is that because they’re all a bunch of new-age folks out there? What’s the deal with solar panels? Can they even be used in the Tristate?
Dear California Traveler,
Hope you had a great time! Oh, the sight of so many solar panels makes my heart skip a beat. California has often led the country with pollution-beating alternative energies, and sometimes that leaves the rest of us wondering why.
