You might want to install panels to reduce your electricity bills or generate green energy. There are a few mistakes solar owners make before switching to solar. We have highlighted them for you to make your solar installation worth it and hassle free.

Definitely in summers you can generate a little more power than any other season. It is always beneficial to install solar, let’s say you booked your solar power system just before the summers are approaching, as the summers arrive, you start saving on your bills and generating more power.

Make sure your solar panels are installed in a proper direction to receive maximum benefits of the panels throughout the day. Solar Miner can help you design the aerial view and placements of panels on your roof with the latest software available and also help you determine your approximate yearly solar production.
4. Trusting non licensed company and cheap products
After shopping around for solar and getting multiple quotes, we automatically tend to choose the cheapest quote. However, it can lead to more costs in the long run. Remember cheap products are never branded and upgraded while upgraded and branded products are never cheap. Also, always select a CEC approved solar retailer to install solar systems at your property as it can provide you mental peace. Solar Miner offers proven quality products that are reliable and efficient backed by exceptional customer support.
5. Not knowing what you are doing
It is necessary to know what you are looking for. You need to research the company’s online performance, products and solar market before switching to solar. Also, you need to think if you are planning to increase your electricity consumption in future by adding any electrical appliances. It is generally advised to install a slightly higher solar system than required. This can meet your electricity needs with the changing weather conditions and utility prices. Most importantly, always install CEC approved Tier 1 solar modules and inverters. Speak to one of our consultants now to book your high quality solar power system.
