Why The Spring Time Is The Best Season To Add a Solar Panel System To Your Home

Solar panels are not necessarily "better" in the spring and summer versus the winter, but they tend to produce more electricity in these months due to several factors.

The Sun

Longer Daylight Hours: During the summer months, there are more daylight hours, which allows solar panels to produce much more electricity.

Stronger Sun: The sun is also stronger during the summer months, which means that it provides more energy for solar panels to convert into electricity.

Better Solar Angle: In the summer, the sun is higher in the sky, which provides a more direct line of sunlight to the solar panels. This direct sunlight results in more efficient energy production.

Install Time

Solar System Installation: A solar system can take anywhere from 3-6 months to get installed. There are lots of steps involved when installing a Solar System on your home. Every town/city is different which impacts install time. Things like Interconnection, the Utility, Permitting, Inspectors, Incentives all affect install times. Getting the process started in late winter/early spring ensures that your solar system is ready to start making power during the best season of the year!

The Weather

Optimal weather conditions: Spring and Summer weather is generally mild and stable, which is ideal for the installation of solar panels. The installation process is quicker and smoother when the weather is not too hot or too cold.

Tax Credits

Timing for tax credits and rebates: The federal government and many states offer financial incentives for renewable energy installations, such as tax credits and rebates. These incentives are often available until the end of the year, so installing solar panels in the spring gives you plenty of time to take advantage of them.

Home Value

Increasing your home value: Installing solar panels can drastically increase the value of your home and make it more attractive to potential buyers. By going solar in the spring, you can enjoy the benefits of increased home value sooner. A home with Solar is much likely to sell 20-30% higher than a home without a Solar System.

While these are just some of the reasons why spring is a good time to go solar, it's important to keep in mind that solar panels can be installed at any time of year. Solar Panels can still generate electricity efficiently, regardless of the season, especially if they are installed in areas with a lot of sunlight. Additionally, modern solar panels are designed to work efficiently even in low-light conditions, so they can still generate electricity even on cloudy or overcast days.

To summarize, the spring is a great time to go solar for a number of reasons. With stronger sun, increased daylight hours, optimal weather conditions, and a wide range of financial incentives available, it's the perfect time to invest in renewable energy and make your home more energy-efficient. By the time summer rolls around your home will be your own power plant as you generate your own electricity all while saving a boat load of money on utility bills.
