After experiencing several rounds of rate hikes from their utility company, this homeowner reached out to Raze Solar for a home energy quote and to learn more about solar panel installation in St. Augustine.
Their electric bill prior to adding solar panels was $205 per month. This was the highest it had ever been. This homeowner did not have an electric vehicle or add any other appliance to increase energy consumption.
Initially, their main goal was to find out if their home was a good fit for rooftop solar panels and see if switching could lower their monthly electricity costs.
After a quick home inspection, we sent the information over to our in-house engineer. After reviewing the data, it was determined that this home met all the qualifications for solar panels, and with the right system, solar panels would offset energy costs.
In order to maintain the high aesthetics of the property, Raze Solar designed a system featuring low-profile solar panels and micro-inverters for each panel to optimize performance. This type of solar design generates about 7% more power than standard layouts.
