Getting Started

Going Solar with Ecohouse Solar is easy

Getting Started with Ecohouse Solar

  • Ecohouse Solar will check the solar compatibility of your home or business during a free solar consultation and site assessment. We will determine the right number of solar panels you need depending on your electric usage, the amount of usable space you have and your budget. We then provide a detailed proposal, including 25 years of financial information, so that you can make an informed decision. Ecohouse Solar can also help you with financing using an ECO-Link loan. We serve the Columbus and Central Ohio area.
