There are thousands of companies installing solar panels today. Every company is different, so it’s important to understand how to choose the best solar installer for you. Here are the top five things that you should consider.
First, make sure to hire an installer that has experience and a proven track record. Ask installers how long they’ve been in business, and how many installations they’ve completed in your area.
Second, ensure the installer has relevant industry certifications. Reputable solar companies will have certifications from organizations or their respective states to vouch for their level of training and expertise.
Third, check for proper insurance and licensing. These requirements can vary, but generally include insurance, general contracting licensing, and an electrical license. If you’re shopping for solar with us be rest assured that we have approved installers & all are pre-screened for proper licensing before installation.
Fourth, check each company’s ratings and reviews, and select a provider that has a reputation for quality. The higher quality installers tend to have many favorable reviews online. The best installers should also be able to provide you with references to contact directly.
Fifth, you should select a company that you like and trust. Your relationship with your installer won’t end once the contract is signed, or even once the installation is complete. Working with a responsive, respectful, and knowledgeable solar company can make all the difference when it comes to your installation, as well as any maintenance issues that come up in the future.
