Visit Act On Energy and take an inventory of your overall energy efficiency.
  • Tighten up any inefficiencies due to outdated appliances or other causes.
  • Visit the ENERGY STAR® website for more about choosing efficient appliances.


Avoid Unintended Environmental Impacts

Solar arrays are substantial in size, so before you begin planning your project, consider the following:

  • Visual impact.
  • Potential disturbance of land use (if not roof-mounted).
  • Drainage runoff.
  • Possibility of damaged or improperly disposed of photovoltaic panels. Please consult your installer for information.
  
To help you determine the safest and most harmonious environmental integration of your system, consult a trained installer or developer.
