Many homeowners make this switch to save money in the long run and reduce their impact on the environment. But with so many options, how do you choose the right solar installer for you?
Here are some questions to help you determine the best PV installer for your needs:
- Ask for referrals from friends or family who have already installed a PV system
- Look for online reviews from trusted sources
- Consider the company’s experience and track record
- Find out how long they have been in business
- Check their local installation record
- Verify if they are a turn-key operation or if they use subcontractors
- Ask about the products they use and the warranties they offer
- Make sure they are knowledgeable about local laws and regulations for switching to solar energy
- Check if they are up-to-date on available incentives for homeowners
- Ask about the process and make sure they are able to provide a custom solution tailored to your needs
Another factor to consider is your financial options. Your solar consultant should be able to guide you through the different funding options, including cash, a solar loan, or leasing. Keep in mind that not all companies offer leasing options.
When it comes to the cost of a solar system, it’s important to remember that the initial cost and cost per watt aren’t the only factors to consider. Work with your solar installer to find a system that meets your energy needs and fits your budget.
Your solar installer will handle all the necessary permits, roof inspections, and other important tasks. They should keep you informed throughout the process and work with your homeowner’s association and utility company to ensure a smooth installation. Once the work is completed, the utility or local electricity inspector will close the work permit, and you can start reaping the benefits of solar energy.
Choosing the right solar installer is crucial to ensuring you get a custom system that fits your household’s needs and saves you money in the long run. Let us help you start your solar journey and answer any questions you may have.
