Free Consultation

Schedule a Free Solar Consultation with one of our knowledgeable consultants to learn how much a system will cost for your home and how much you can save every month on your electricity bills.

The initial call will be about 15 minutes. The solar consultant will review your historical electrical usage patterns and evaluate your home via satellite photos for roof space and solar exposure. You will discuss what percentage of your electrical usage you would like to offset with clean solar power.

One of the next steps is to conduct a site visit to evaluate your roof structure and measure the solar exposure on your roof.

Written Proposal

SolarCity will gladly prepare a detailed written proposal for your home solar system. There’s no obligation and it’s free.

Your solar consultant will work with you to custom design the system based on your family’s electrical needs, your home’s architecture and your financial goals.

Your proposal will outline the size of solar system, included services, pricing, government rebates, environmental profile and financial analysis.

To obtain a written proposal, start by scheduling a Free Solar Consultation.
