When SolarEmpower asked Rehab Solar about its cost, the company told us:
|“We are heavily interested in quality of products. As such, I have 5 different panel types on my house just to see how each panel produces the best in real life circumstances. This allows us to see which panel will be best for our customers based on price, quality and production.”|
This shows that Rehab isn’t focused on only high-cost products and is willing to serve its customers as best as it can.
If you decide to follow through with Rehab Solar, there are several processes to take note of. First of all, everyone uses energy differently, and to get an accurate quote; they will need to assess your energy usage and future needs. The installation cost will always vary depending on how you and your family use energy and the size of the system you will require. After getting a quote, a site survey by Rehab Solar will be carried out to make sure the proposed solar panels will fit on your roof and accounts for chimneys, roof vents, and other factors. An initial deposit will be expected.
Your proposed layout will then be engineered into CAD drawings, and your project will be submitted for permit approval. A progress payment may be due at this point.
