Pick My Solar Education Resources

At Pick My Solar, we’re familiar with how overwhelming going solar seems when you’re first getting started. Between pushy sales techniques and financing methods designed to maximize company profits, homeowners are rightfully wary of the process. With so much competing information available online, it’s often difficult to know who to trust when it comes to system size, equipment modules, and the other intricacies of solar.

Those of us at Pick My Solar pride ourselves on being an independent marketplace that is first and foremost an advocate for homeowners in the solar process. We want to make sure that you possess the necessary knowledge to make an informed decision, no matter what you choose.  That’s why we’ve created a few great resources to teach you almost everything we know about solar. By the way, they’re all free!
