We were very pleased with the entire installation process working with Better Tomorrow Solar and our first energy bill was only $20 after going solar.

What You Need to Know


We installed a 9.52 kW system using Hanwha QCell panels and Enphase IQ7 microinverters.

My Motivation:

We were motivated to go solar as energy costs continue to rise from our utility provider. Our first energy bill was around $20 after going solar, which for the winter is very low, so we are confident we made the right decision. We are planning to add a battery soon as one of our other objectives is to be prepared for power outages.


Our biggest advise is ensure that you are comfortable with your installer. The process can take a couple of months and you want to make sure you are working with a company that you like. Also, ask a lot of questions to your solar company. Make sure you are getting the right system size and make sure your installers do a great roof inspection prior to getting your solar installed. Obviously, you want to install solar on a newer roof. Clear communication with your installer is key to a smooth process.

Experience with Installer:

It was important for us to work with a local installer with experience and the right knowledge. This was just as important to us as price. We have a neighbor who worked with a company from out west that sold them solar and then basically left town. They were sold a system that was way too big and then they could never get it touch with the rep again. Once installed, we had to wait a couple of weeks to get the system turned on via Duke Energy, but our installer communicated that the process sometimes took that long.
