Bay County Solar Installers

3 Things You Should Know About Hiring a Bay County Solar Company


If we want the planet to support life for many more generations, we need to start taking better care of it. Renewable energy sources like solar and wind energy are excellent ways to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and still live the modern lifestyle we enjoy. 

In 2019, only 11% of global primal energy came from a renewable source. You can help make that a bigger number by installing a solar energy system at your home. 

To do that, you need to find the right solar company. Check out what you need to know about hiring a Bay County solar company right here.

1. Assess Your Solar Needs

How big of a system do you need? Do you have a swimming pool? If you want to extend the swimming pool season, using solar energy to heat the water is an extremely cost-effective way to do it. Of course, you’ll need to hire a company that offers an array of solar solutions.

Here at Compass Solar Energy, we install systems like solar water heating, swimming pool heating, as well as batteries that supply your home with continuous solar energy. With the right system, you can virtually eliminate the need to pay for electricity from the Gulf Power Company or Duke Energy or whoever is your provider. 

2. Financing Options

It’s no secret that the upfront cost of installing a solar energy system is expensive. The savings on your monthly bills will eventually pay for them, but it takes a few years. Many of the top solar companies offer financing options to spread the cost of your panels out over a few years. 

Dealing directly with your solar company can be a better option than taking out a loan to pay for your panels. It also may come with a better interest rate so be sure to ask about this option.  

3. Hire an Experienced Solar Company

If you’re like most people, your first step is to type “solar companies near me” into Google and see what comes up. However, don’t just go with the top result and call it good. If you want to hire one of the best solar companies, you need to do a little further research.

Ask around for personal referrals and definitely check any prospective company’s online reviews. 

A good idea is to hire a company like Compass Solar Energy who has been in business for a long time. We’ve been providing high-quality solar services since 1998 and our track record speaks for itself. 

A New Way to Shine

It’s unrealistic to expect that we will stop using electricity. Too much of modern life depends on it. However, we can keep the lights on and help protect the planet at the same time by getting our energy from different sources. Burning fossil fuels isn’t the only way to generate electricity. It isn’t even the most efficient way.
