How much did you know about solar energy?
I knew quite a bit behind the science of solar power, but I was impressed with the progress that has been made with technology used in the systems and on the installs.
What kind of system did Southern Current install for your home?
7.38 kW roof mounted solar power system with Mission Solar modules (made in America). Click to view more details about this James Island South Carolina solar panel install.
What made you choose Southern Current for your solar installation?
I valued a locally owned and operated solar installer (not a national company), and my friends spoke highly of Southern Current.
What was the process of going solar like?
It was way easier than anticipated. My sales rep., Doug Hayden, was exceptional in communication and guidance.
What was the most difficult part of the process for you?
We had an aging roof (18 years old) and had to replace the roofing in order to feasibly install the system. Finding the right roofing vendor for that was a long process.
What benefits have you seen since the installation?
Our power bill has been greatly reduced, and we expect to realize even better benefits during spring & summer months when abundant sun levels peak.
What would you say to someone who is interested in going solar?
I highly recommend doing it, especially before the Federal & State solar incentives expire. Also, it is a tremendous way to do our part to reduce dependency on fossil fuels.
