Choosing a company to install solar panels is a bit of a tricky task. There are many choices and they’re not all reputable. We’ve created this quick guide to walk you through the process of choosing the correct solar installers.
- Get a Recommendation – Word of mouth is one of the most powerful endorsements you can get. Look to friends, family members, and co-workers to learn about the contractors they chose for their installation. If you don’t know anybody with their own panels, strike up a conversation with people who do.
- Check References – Any company worth their salt should be able to refer you to satisfied customers. Alternately, you can find reviews online that can support your decision, or show you where you should look. Check to make sure the companies you are considering are licensed, certified, and bonded. Any company without these credentials is an illegitimate business.
- Get a Free Quote – Once you have a few options, start getting some estimates. If you can’t get a free estimate, consider whether you want to do business with that company. Don’t be afraid to mention estimates to competing companies to get the best deals.
- Inquire about Rebates – There are many federal and municipal incentives to be had. You should do a little research on such incentives in your area and see who can help you with the best rebate package. You’ll quickly see who has the best grasp on the financial situation in your neck of the woods.
