The decision to transition from traditional electricity to solar power is essentially a life-changing move for yourself, your family, and your property. Switching to solar energy is a significant investment in your home and the environment. The first big step is deciding to switch; the next important matter is selecting a solar company to handle everything. Do not assume that all solar companies are alike – especially considering the investment of time and money involved. You want to be sure that you find the best company to meet all of your solar-related needs.

A Few Good Tips

#1 – Begin with research. Before you can narrow down a list of possible solar companies, you have to know who’s available. The first step in choosing a solar company is to make a list of available solar providers in your area. 

#2 – Read the reviews. It is rare to find any company without a single negative review, so don’t be shocked to see some 1-star ratings. At the same time, you also don’t want to pass over the bad reviews you might find. You need to see the good, the bad, and especially the neutral comments made by other customers.

#3 – Get multiple quotes. Adding solar panels to your roof is similar to renovating part of your home; you wouldn’t hire the first contractor you spoke to, so don’t go with the first solar company you call. Request quotes from multiple companies and see what they all have to offer.

#4 – Look beyond the financial comparison. If you have ever bought anything in a store, you know that sometimes the cheaper item isn’t always better. Sometimes there’s a reason why the brand name costs more. Especially when it comes to choosing your solar company, don’t assume that the cheaper quote is the better company. 

#5 – Check the qualifications. As you narrow down your list of potential solar energy companies, check the company’s insurance, license, and certifications. You also want to know if the company is certified by the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP). 

#6 – Set your expectations high. Solar energy is a long-term investment, and you want a solar company that you can count on beyond the installation. Among the questions you ask each solar provider, ask about their warranty offerings and what you can expect down the road.
