Is It Time For My Home to Go Solar?

As our beautiful planet continues to suffer from our carbon footprints, many of us are left wondering what we could do to promote its well-being. With the introduction of solar panels, many homeowners were excited but left hopeless once they found out how expensive they were to install. However, new tax incentives, leasing options, and inexpensive alternatives are leaving energy efficient solutions in our path that we can actually afford!

If you are one of the many homeowners who is considering installing solar panels to make your home more energy efficient, it is important that you keep the following in mind:

  • Do you want to go solar all the way or simply offset the costs of your electricity bill? It may make more financial sense to only go 50% or 80% solar.
  • You must look into the condition and material of your roof before finalizing any decisions to go solar. Your roof may not be made of material that can sustain solar panels.
  • You must calculate how much power your solar panels will generate as opposed to how much electricity it will generate.
  • What warranty or insurance solution will you need for your solar panels? This is an important consideration.

Contact the insurance professionals at Allan Block Insurance Agency located in Tarrytown, Westchester, New York for all of your homeowners’ insurance needs. We can assist in insuring your solar power panels once installed.
