How do I select a solar provider?

You’ve decided solar is right for you. Now you’ll need to select the right provider. From the initial quote to financing, the system design and maintenance, your solar provider is with you from beginning to end of your solar installation. Choosing the right provider is an important decision. Consider the following factors as you decide on a provider:

  1. Selecting a local or national provider

    It’s important to be aware of the benefits and differences of working with a local or national solar provider. Some national companies may offer a greater number of warranties, payment options and maintenance services. Alternatively, local companies may be more familiar with state incentives and permitting requirements.

  2. Check company reviews

    You want to work with the company who will best work with you. Experience and certifications go only so far. Read reviews through Yelp, the Better Business Bureau, and Google. Don’t be afraid to ask a potential company for references from past customers.

  3. Review financing options

    Whether you want to pay cash, take out a loan, lease, or enter into a power purchase agreement (PPA), make sure your potential providers consider that option. You may also select a provider with multiple financing options.

  4. Request a Quote

    Consider what factor is most important to you: financing, customer satisfaction, aesthetics, warranties, service and maintenance.
