Choosing a Solar Installer

A residential solar power system can cost $25,000 to $50,000 and sometimes even more. Because this investment can be so costly, it’s even more important to ensure you are making a sound decision when choosing your solar system installer. Trust the professionalism, knowledge and reputation of your solar installer, because they are truly your partners throughout the entire process.

Choosing a One-Stop Shop

Many solar companies believe in the “one-stop shop” approach to providing any and all solar needs. By purchasing all the parts and installing the entire system, they are able to lower their costs. This is a good option for anyone looking to reduce stress throughout the process, and save money.

Buying parts from a variety of companies, and shopping around for installers in time consuming. The benefits of a one-stop shop lie in their ability to match the products with the installers.

Solar pricing

When you deal with a reputable solar installation firm, you often have the option of financing your entire solar project. Low interest financing is available for those with good credit scores.

What to Ask

Make sure your solar installation firm guarantees quality work. Your overall project should be cost effective. Be sure your list of installation candidates meets the following criteria.

  • Is bonded and insured.
  • Is in good standing with permit authorities and local utilities.
  • Can provide several quality references.

It is also important to consider whether or not the firm has a staff of installer, or if they will need to contract work out, as this can affect your overall cost.

Narrow your choices down to 2-3 companies, and never make a decision based on price. A reputable solar power installation company will be able to answer any questions, and will be eager to provide quality work. Do your homework to ensure you choose the best possible installation company for your specific project.
