Spring Into Solar! Why is the Spring Time a Good Time to Install Solar?

Spring has finally arrived and with it, sunshine and warmer weather. It’s the time of the year that homeowners begin deep cleaning, bringing in a fresh start for the summer months ahead.

Although you cannot go wrong by installing solar on your home or business any time of the year, here are a few reasons why the spring time might be the best time for you.  

Tax Season & Incentives

Many people are receiving their tax returns. Instead of blowing that money on something you might regret, use that tax return to invest in a solar system you will save you money for many years to come.

Spring is also the perfect time to take advantage of federal, provincial and municipal tax credits and incentives available for solar installations. In some regions, rebates and incentives can cover up to 30% of the installation cost, making it more affordable. These incentives and rebates often have limited funding and are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis. Installing solar panels in spring gives you an advantage over those who wait until later in the year.

Take Advantage of the High Production Time

In Alberta, spring and summer are the seasons with the longest days, which means that having solar installed can get you a head start at producing energy for your home. Installing your solar system in the early spring will get you more months with longer daytime, maximizing your solar PV module usage. With longer days, comes brighter sun. 

Summer is typically the time of year when the average electric bill spikes, mostly due to homeowners turning on their AC to cope with the heat. Save that money by switching to solar energy before the summer so that you can enjoy your AC while reducing your energy footprint at the same time.

Nicer Weather

Most of us will be spending more time outside this spring enjoying the sunshine and beautiful weather. Solar panels operate most efficiently when the temperature is between 15 and 25 degrees Celsius. Spring temperatures are typically mild and fall within that range, making it the ideal season for solar installation and energy production. 

By scheduling your solar installation in the springtime, not only can you enjoy your air conditioning all summer long without worrying about utility bills, your installation team can enjoy working in cool, sunny weather without the intense summer heat.

Get Ahead of the Crowd

Summertime is one of the busiest seasons for solar installation because we are working with the most daylight. Most people think they can get more from their installations during this time, meaning that solar technicians will be busy. If you plan ahead, you will have more time to enjoy the summer and your AC along with a piece of mind in knowing you’re doing good for the environment.

By installing solar panels in the spring, you can reduce your carbon footprint and help protect the environment. The solar panels generate clean energy, reducing your reliance on fossil fuels that contribute to climate change. This will help to preserve the environment for future generations.

Overall, installing solar energy in the spring is a smart investment that can help you save money on energy bills, reduce your carbon footprint, and take advantage of tax credits and incentives. So, what are you waiting for? Contact us to get your free estimate now!
