What You Need to Know

Description:

Rooftop system comprised of 25 Q-cell Peak 425 panels with 25 SMA TS4 optimizers; 2 SMA invertors and one Tesla Powerwall 2.

Other Benefits:

Battery backup in case of power outage.

Maintenance Requirements:

None yet.

My Motivation:

1. Control energy cost and usage. 2. To benefit the environment. 3. To benefit from government incentives.

Advice:

Screen your proposal carefully and learn as much as you can before starting the process.

Experience with Installer:

I received 9 bids from installers with one being a little non truthful. I chose the company I did because they were reasonably local (under 50 miles) as well as a lower cost (not the lowest.) Their equipment choices were well explained to me as well. They were also the ONLY company to make a site visit before submitting a proposal.

Additional Notes:

We are on top of the only large hill for miles. It was an experience for the installers lugging their equipment to the top via truck. More than a bit steep.

Open House Info:

We are a bit away from DFW.
