Are Solar Panels Right for You?

September 21, 2020

Solar panels, usually mounted on your roof, convert the sun’s energy into usable electricity. Are you considering if solar is right for you and your family?

There’s a lot to think about when determining if solar panels are a good option. Before you make a decision, consider some of the facts and read our helpful guide for homeowners.

We've also launched a new solar calculator — an easy-to-use tool for all AEP Ohio residential customers to provide accurate, rooftop solar information. With info from the calculator you can make fully informed decisions about what options are best for you. Understand your home’s solar potential with a personal assessment, and decide if solar is the right decision for your family. 

What you’ll need: 

  • To make the best use of the personalization tool, have your usage data from the last 12 months handy, and be ready to answer questions about the physical orientation of your roof. 

What to expect: 

  • Compare options: View personalized options side-by-side to understand how different scenarios impact your costs in the near-term and long-term. 
  • Review personal assessment: Find out your solar savings potential based on your rooftop characteristics, your electricity use, electricity rates and available tax credits.
