Yes, these also need to be consider, when moving to solar!


In our experience, many home owners can save on their energy bill, by simply reducing the hours that their swimming pool pumps run, by installing a timer system.

Another interesting way to reduce your energy bill is by installing a small sized pool pump. Many home owners are left with a legacy system, that was far too big, for the size of their swimming pool. You may want to consult an engineer about this option, as pool sales people , are more than likely looking for a bigger sale, instead of helping you reduce your energy bill !


Don't forget to look for any other outdoor appliances, such as irrigation controllers, or outdoor lights, that you need to add to your list, as well !
