What’s the best way to go solar in Corpus Christi?

Choosing the right solar system for your home depends on your energy needs and how you plan to use your system. If you intend to generate more power than you can use and want to sell the energy back to your utility, you should invest in a higher-capacity solar system. Conversely, if you want to preserve your roof's aesthetics, go for a smaller but still highly efficient solar system.
