Looking for a solar consultant
We're ready to take the solar plunge, replacing the gas stove with something electric, and doing what we can reduce gas consumption for heating the house and water.
There are so many solar installers to choose from. They all sound somewhat like used car salesmen - to put it bluntly.
I have several questions like:
How many kW should I plan for?
What about a PowerWall or other forms of battery?
Could I use an electric car as a battery?
Are there any ways to aggregate in a localized community?
Is solar water heating a good idea?
What's suitable for my neighborhood?
I'm sure there are more that will occur to me or my friends.
So before deciding on someone to install (and maintain it?), I would like to find a consultant who can help me scope the work. Does anyone have a consultant who they can recommend?
