To begin your journey toward a solar-powered home, first start the process of researching whether solar is right for you. A number of factors will determine if you will benefit from solar power at your home.

Below are some helpful tips to get you started:

  • Find a qualified solar installer to guide you through this stage of the process. Mississippi Power recommends using a qualified solar installer certified by the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP). NABCEP is an organization that trains and certifies renewable energy professionals.

  • Determine if a solar PV installation is both technically and financially feasible for your home. This can be done by discussing the feasibility with a qualified solar installer.
  • When evaluating the financial feasibility of a solar PV installation, you should obtain estimates of the solar system installation cost, projected energy savings and any revenue from selling excess energy generated to Mississippi Power.
  • Determine if any financial or tax incentives are available. See a list of incentives.
  • It is also recommended that you evaluate potential energy efficiency improvements that may reduce the amount of power you need. This may be the easiest and most cost-effective way to lower your energy bills. Once you have thought about these steps, you may consider connecting to the grid.
