What tips do you have for someone considering or moving forward with a solar installation?

  • Check out several companies, and seek references from those who have installed solar by asking users who their contractors were (be cautious of asking dealers for references)
  • Check with CUB for any current info they have
  • Check with your tax preparer for impact in your taxes
  • Talk with ISEA

Personal Story:

I have long been in favor of conservative measures, home self-sufficiency, and growing your own food. I have been engaged in this at Old Enterprise Farms for 48 years now.
