FTC Workshop Will Examine Competition and Consumer Protection Issues in the Rooftop Solar Business
Providing homeowners with accurate sizing information is something I feel very passionate about. From what we've seen in California, there most homeowners don't install the optimal solar size and configuration, which means their energy cost reductions are dillluted or non-existent. In fact, this is the sole reason I founded Solar Verified (solarverified.com). People should use their hourly usage data to make an informed decision about how to size and configure their solar installation - not rely on monthly kWh totals. The difference can be many thousands of dollars saved at installation and over the life of the system.
