The Advantages of Solar Energy during the Holidays

When it comes to the holidays, few things are quite as iconic as the Christmas Tree. With beautiful lights shining night after night, entire towns can completely change their character for a few months each year. Unfortunately, all of that beauty comes at a real cost - sky-high electrical bills can transform that holiday cheer into a grimace and a groan. Fortunately, there's a solution that can work in even the darkest months of the year - quality solar panels which can power all of the holiday lights with juice to spare! The advantages of solar energy are too good to pass up if you want to hang the lights without worrying about your bills.

The bidding process itself is as simple and straightforward as you want it to be. Most solar installers will insist on having a professional come out and inspect a property - but with only so many inspectors to go around, long lines can stop you from getting power when you want it. The easy alternative will just ask a few questions that are designed to guide you through the selection process and understand what you need to know about solar power - and in as little as 10-20 minutes, you could have 3 comparable bids for the project from a network of vetted, quality installers. It really is that easy! Once things are finalized, the only thing left is the installation process itself, which averages about two days for a standard residential project.

Now, what's the process like without the right partner? Well, first you'll need to wait days or weeks to have someone come visit your home. They'll probably spend hours looking at things, then trying to figure out how much they can charge you - and you could wind up overpaying some contractors by as much as $15,000. You'll also have to deal with endless calls from marketers if you invite public bids instead of settling on a specific installer, and all of them will be desperate to get your business. It's hard to enjoy the holiday season when you're spending all of your time evaluating bids, especially if you're trying to do it quickly enough to get a project done before you put your lights up.

Solar panels are a great investment, but the wrong choices really could cost you. Pick My Solar is a simple, easy, and affordable way to get a bid for the project and find installers you can trust to get the job done right.
