Is My Home Good for Solar?

Our handy two-minute quiz asks a series of questions to help determine whether your home is a good fit for solar. Everyone’s situation is different. We take pride in providing you with an accurate, competitive assessment. 

Solar Solution Built for Your Needs

Like people, homes come in all shapes and sizes. Additionally, every family has different energy needs. Finding the right fit is our StraightUp Solar commitment to you. A customized solar quote can educate you with all the information you need up front to decide whether solar is the right investment for your family. 

How Does Solar Reduce Your Energy Costs?

Your solar array produces energy for your home without being charged by the utility.

That means your estimated overall energy costs are lower. The difference in the estimated energy costs compared to your original bills gives you the cash flow to pay for your system.

Solar Battery Benefits

When the grid goes down you can keep the lights on with solar battery storage. Batteries also allow you to self-consume more of your solar energy.

StraightUp Solar offers several solar and storage options from powering up a few appliances all the way to whole house backup. Our engineers will can create a custom solution for your home, and we offer two storage platforms: Tesla Powerwall, and Enphase IQ Battery.

SPAN Smart Panels

You gain real-time control and updates of your solar PV system from your mobile device. Ultimately, this close management allows you to minimize energy consumption, thus saving money on energy costs.
