The Real Cost of Rooftop Solar

With temperatures rising, so too are the efforts of solar marketers in our area. While the allure of the promises made by these marketers can be very tempting, remember that if they sound too good to be true, they often are.

Cobb EMC is proud to introduce a new rooftop solar assessment tool to equip you with the information you need to make an informed solar decision. While completing the assessment, you will be asked a series of questions about your home and your electric bill. Your answers will help determine an estimate of how much you can expect a rooftop solar installation to cost for your home, as well as how long you should expect to see a payback.

A reputable solar contractor should ask you many of the same questions asked through the assessment. By completing the assessment before you obtain any estimates from contractors, you should have a realistic idea of what to expect regarding costs, benefits, and the type of information contractors should be looking for. Remember: Cobb EMC recommends obtaining at least three quotes before making a purchase decision. You can view a list of vetted, approved contractors on our website.
