You’ve heard a lot about solar power, maybe by a referral from a friend or simply by reading the news, and now you’re interested. Although you understand the general concept about how solar works and see so many homes throughoutNorthern California with solar panels, you probably still have questions.
Is it as simple as just having solar panels installed on my roof? Would it really work for my home? Could my roof even work with those solar panels? How much would I need to invest? How long would I have to wait before I saw a return?

Our approach is entirely no-pressure, so you’ll simply come away armed with the information you need to make a decision that’s right for you.
Why Should I Consider Going Solar?
You know that solar is what many experts are calling the energy of the future. But what benefits would you see if you were to take on the hassle of installing a solar energy system in your home?
By upgrading to solar power for your home, you can expect to see the following benefits instantaneously:
- Reduced or entirely eliminated monthly electricity bills
- Minimized carbon footprint
- Increased home resale value
No-Cost Solar Assessment Process
Making any kind of upgrade to your home can be a time-consuming and potentially expensive process. By scheduling a no-cost solar assessment, one of our experts will come to your home to answer your questions and determine your home’s potential.
1. Determining Home Solar Viability
We will begin by looking at your home’s solar potential. The homes with the greatest potential for solar panels have a southern orientation with minimal shading and obstructions. Even if your home doesn’t fit these ideal parameters, that doesn’t mean that solar won’t work and we’ll discuss all the options with you.
2. Roof Assessment
Next, we will preliminarily calculate your roof’s potential solar surface area. We will also determine what shape your roof is in and whether it’ll be able to support a long-term solar installation.
3. Home Energy Review
When we get back inside, we’ll discuss your home’s energy usage. It’ll be helpful if you have past electricity bills handy so we can determine how much power your home needs. By knowing how much electricity you currently use and an idea of how much solar could potentially produce for your home, we’ll be able to gauge your savings.
4. Rebate, Incentive & Financing Eligibility Review
Finally, we’ll discuss what rebates, incentives and financing solutions you may be eligible for. This includes the current 30% federal tax credit, any utility incentives and loan options from PACE financing.
At West Coast Solar, we want to answer your questions so you feel comfortable in your decision to go solar. After your no-cost solar assessment, we’ll provide you with a quote and scope of work tailored specifically to your home and your needs.
