How do I know which option is best for me?

The best way is to call us and talk to one of our solar specialists. We can quickly determine what the best option is for you. Here are some general guidelines though;

MicroFIT – If you do not have a load account at the site this is the only choice. This option has the highest initial rate of return but overall the rate of return is lower than net-metering.

Net-metering – This is the most popular program this year. This option will give you a lower initial return on investment but over the life of the system it will give you a much higher ROI than any other option. Net-metering is much faster to get approved and much less restrictive than MicroFIT

Grid-interactive Net Zero – This option is used when you have a grid connection but the utililty will not let you connect a solar system to it. It is more expensive than net-metering or microFIT but it has the added bonus that you will have power when the grid is down.

Off-grid – This is only suitable if there is no grid connection available. It is the most expensive option.
