Xcel Power encourages folks to analysis earlier than buying rooftop photo voltaic panels | KAMR
AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR / KCIT) – Xcel Energy said more people are looking for solar panels for their home every year.
According to Xcel, there is a lot of misunderstanding about these solar roof panels. The panels work like a battery that stores the solar energy that you can use to power your home.
The problem is, a lot of people have heard that energy companies can get you paid for using these panels
However, Xcel Energy’s Wes Reeves said this is not always the case.
“You want to find out if it’s compatible. Is the equipment you buy compatible with our network as we have standards for the connection that we will connect to. The other thing is to understand the economy because a lot of people will be looking to see if they can spend $ 20,000 on a system that pays for itself, ”Reeves said.
The company also said it was important to remember that everyone is different.
If you don’t use a lot of energy in your home, you’re probably not getting much in return and there is a $ 20 monthly service charge for a meter that keeps track of how much is fed back into the grid.
Xcel said they encourage you to ask questions before closing the deal on a solar panel. If you have a question, please call (806) 378-2165.
