What you get when you buy solar panels from the big stores

Installation expenses can be a factor for an average homeowner looking to go solar. It’s easy to buy solar panels at the big stores, but this method isn’t without its challenges.

  • DIY solar panels involve a complex setup and process which can be risky and extremely dangerous. An incorrect installation can end up costing you more than you bargained for.
  • Connecting a solar array to the grid requires the correct permits and sign-off from a professional. Utility companies often deny a system to be turned on without the proper requirements.
  • Essential parts are not included with your purchase: wiring, conduit, tracking mounts, AC/DC inverters, mounting equipment, etc…
  • Lower efficiency and less power production than equipment that comes from a reputable solar provider.
