If you are considering “going solar” you will want to know more about how to calculate your potential energy savings and how to determine your solar energy potential.  You will first want to contact a qualified solar installer with a proven track record, a company like Venture Solar.  Venture Solar is a top-notch solar installation company based in Brooklyn, NY dedicated to providing quality service to our customers.

In the 2 years since its foundation, Venture has installed over a thousand solar systems in New York City, and is now expanding its service footprint to include Nassau County. Established in 2015, the company employs over a 110 dedicated New Yorkers, all of whom are committed to changing the way we consume and generate energy right here at home.  Not to toot our own horn, but we think you should know that Venture Solar was recently recognized as one of the “Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America” by Entrepreneur magazine.  Each year the magazine seeks to identify 360 small businesses that are noteworthy based on four business metrics: impact, innovation, growth, and leadership. The result is what the magazine refers to as its Entrepreneur 360 list.   Venture Solar has recently made that list – and we are very proud of that accomplishment.

Part of what we at Venture Solar do best is to provide you with a thorough analysis of your site and help you determine your solar energy potential.  Basically, a solar power system is designed considering two important factors – the amount of space that you have available for installing solar panels and the amount of electricity you consume annually. Other factors, like shading analysis and the efficiency of the solar panels and inverters you purchase also come into play.  The slope of your roof and whether your or your neighbors have trees that might interfere with your PV (photovoltaic) panel efficiency are also factors we look for.  The bottom line is that we work with you to analyze your daily energy use over the prior year and to thoroughly evaluate your home or business to determine your solar energy potential.

Armed with the electricity usage information taken from your utility bills, our local experts at Venture Solar can determine about how big of a solar photovoltaic system would be required to offset 100% of your annual usage. To install a solar energy system on the roof of your home or business, we have to determine the amount of viable roof space you have.  Vents, chimneys, and dormers are factors that help us determine the maximum number of solar panels that can be installed in order to determine how much energy you can generate.

Also critical, Venture Home Solar can help you decide whether you want to own your solar system or take advantage of one of several leasing options, including entering into a Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) that requires little or no upfront costs and allows you to purchase power generated by your system from a solar company or utility that pays for and installs your system.
