For a business, the choice to go solar isn’t easy to make. Not only is it a large investment, but it’s a financial risk that many companies aren’t ready to take. When you consult Kosmos Solar, we’ll ask you some key questions to help you decide whether solar energy is right for your business. Here are a few questions you can expect to answer during your consultation, as well as why we ask them.

Are You in A Solar-Friendly Area?

A big piece of deciding if solar is right for you is where you’re located. If your building has large trees or neighboring buildings that block the roof from getting enough direct sunlight, it might not be the best area for solar energy. We’ll ask questions about your building and where it’s located to get a better picture of its eligibility for solar power. If your building doesn’t work but you still want to produce solar energy, consider investing in a solar project somewhere else in the country. You’ll still be able to offset your energy footprint by paying for solar energy to be produced, even if you aren’t using it in your own building.

Do You Own Your Property?

We ask this so we know who to get permission from. If you’re leasing the building, we’ll have to speak with the owner so they can authorize the project. The owner will also be required to sign off on the project, and we’ll give them the opportunity to collaborate with us.

How Informed are You on Solar Energy?

Solar energy has a lot of benefits, but it also comes with some drawbacks and limitations. We’ll ask you about your solar knowledge so we know you’re making an informed decision. If you have any questions or feel like you need more information, we’ll be happy to help.

What Are Your Energy Goals?

Solar power is so new that we still don’t know everything it’s capable of. The technology we have now is impressive, but it might not be able to meet all your expectations. We ask about your energy goals so we can build our installation plan to fit them, and also to make sure you aren’t expecting too much from your panels.

How Do You Plan on Paying?

You have lots of payment options, including payment plans to fit your needs. When talking about payment, it’s important to remember that your up-front investment will be offset by the money you’ll save on electricity. Your panels could even pay themselves off in a matter of months, and maintenance costs for solar panels are lower than other energy sources.

Make the Switch With Kosmos Solar
