If you are planning on meeting with a consultant to install a solar panel system, you need to make sure you are prepared. Have a list of all electrical appliances along with their wattage and the number of hours you use them on hand. Any good consultant will need to know this information before a solar panel can be installed.
If you are concerned about the environment, solar energy is the smart choice for you. The sun is a renewable resource, so you are not deteriorating the environment. Do your part to use less fossil fuels by using solar energy instead.
