Going solar is hard. It’s confusing, overwhelming, and you so often get contradictory information. That’s why we started Clean Energy Reviews, and that’s why we wrote this simple guide to buying solar. Something that gets mentioned a lot in our forum from people that have been researching about solar for months, is that they have ingested a huge amount of information, and still don’t know where to start. This guide takes you through all the important information you need to know, and decisions you need to make one by one. So if you’ve just decided to go solar, then you have started in the right spot. We have kept it as brief and uncomplicated as possible, as to not confuse or overwhelm any further, but have also added a bunch of links for further reading if you feel you need more detail.
