3. The solar rule is – “Buy cheap, buy twice”
4. Highly quality solar panels can add value to your home, because of the strong 25 year warranty.
5. An independent study by the Department of Energy shows that installing a high quality solar energy system will increase the value of your home.
6. A consideration in picking the best solar panels is not how much it will cost but how long they will last.
7. Cheaper panels will most likely perform poorly and the more the extreme weather the less they will better perform compared to high quality solar panels.
8. Cheaper solar panels the faster they will degrade faster compared to quality panels.
9. Shop around for the best solar production.
10. If you see a solar deal that claims a “no interest” you should be careful. All finance has a cost and with the no interest deals it’s very likely that the cost will be passed on to you.
