So you're ready to switch your household to solar. That's great! That decision is likely to not only provide you with significant energy savings over the coming years, but will also limit your family or business' environmental footprint well into the future.
The decision to switch to solar, however, is always followed by another major choice to make: which company to trust with your solar system installation. Below, let's take a look at five key questions every homeowner should ask potential companies when they're ready to make the switch to solar.
How Many Properties Have You Served?
Experience is always important and when it comes to solar installations, you want to know that your solar company has successfully completed a significant number of projects for various kinds of different properties. Since 2007, South Coast Solar has completed projects for various homeowner and commercial property clients and installed more than 1,500 residential panels.
Will The Technology Provide Reliable Energy?
Not all solar panels are created equal. At South Coast Solar, we're proud to provide SunPower systems to our customers. SunPower technology has been specifically crafted to lead the industry in energy output and efficiency, even in less-than-ideal weather.

Will The Solar System Provide Net Metering?
Net metering systems mean that excess energy your solar system generates is stored on the grid for later use. This is how solar customers can continue to power their homes through the night without the sun shining. Net metering is fairly common now, but always make sure your prospective system offers this functionality.
What Is The Warranty On The Panels?
SunPower offers an industry leading 25-year warranty on all its panels. That means that if anything should go wrong with your panels under that warranty, your system is covered for repairs and replacements.
What Is The Warranty On the Labor?
It's important to realize that there are two warranties to consider: one for the technology itself and one for the work of properly installing it. At South Coast Solar, we provide an extensive 10-year warranty on the work we do on your property. Our staff is also Triple NABCEP Certified as PV Installers, Technical Sales Professionals, and Solar Heating Installers-- so you can trust that our work we do is safe, proven, and resilient.
