With spring finally arriving and summer soon to follow, more homeowners are considering switching to solar energy. Many wonder which season is the best time to have solar panels installed. The truth is every season comes with its own benefits, but spring is probably your best bet so you can take advantage of the extended summer days and start enjoying your new energy independence as soon as possible.
If you’d like to make the switch to solar power before summer comes around, get in touch with Kosmos Solar for a free quote or more information on the benefits of solar.
Take Advantage of the Summer Sunlight
Spring and summer are the seasons with the longest days, which means your solar panels can get a head start producing energy for your home. Summer is the time of year when the average electric bill spikes, mostly because everyone is using their AC more often to cope with the heat. Save that money by switching to solar energy before the summer hits so you can enjoy your air conditioning while reducing your energy footprint at the same time. The sunny spring days also mean your installation is less likely to get postponed because of rain or storms, and you’ll be able to get used to the changes by the time summer rolls around.
Reduce the Burden on the Electrical Grid
When you rely on traditional electricity to power your home, the energy you use is a small part of a large grid in your area. In hot states like Texas, the electrical grid is most likely to become overwhelmed in the summer as homeowners blast their AC to battle the heat. When electrical grids are overwhelmed they can blackout, meaning you’ll lose power to your home until repairs can be done. Solar energy allows you to power your home without relying on the electrical grid. You’ll not only be able to reduce the burden on your grid, but your home can stay powered even if the grid blacks out.
Pleasant Conditions for Your Installation Team
Most of us prefer spending time outdoors in the spring, and solar technicians are no different. By scheduling your installation for springtime, you can enjoy air conditioning all summer long without worrying about utility bills or blackouts, and your installation team can enjoy working in cool, sunny weather without too much heat or humidity. Rescheduling your installation can be hard for everyone involved, but you’re less likely to be rained or stormed out if you plan for a springtime installation.
