Cost vs. Experience When Researching San Diego Solar Companies

When researching different San Diego solar companies, which is more important – cost or experience?

Believe it or not, it’s a pretty easy question to answer.  But most first-time solar customers get it completely wrong.  They tend to focus on the upfront cost of their installation (parts and labor).  And on the surface, it kind of makes sense.  After all, going solar is a hefty investment, and you want to know how much money to take out of your bank to cover all expenses.

But experience is what truly matters.  This has a much greater impact on:

  • The total lifetime of your solar installation
  • Your ability to generate free electricity for decades

An experienced solar installer who cost twice as much as an amateur may still be the better option.  This is because a well-installed solar photovoltaic (PV) system can last 40 years or longer.

Think about it like this.

In 2054, you’ll have completely forgotten how much money you paid for your solar PV installation.  But you’ll definitely remember whether the installation was well done or not.  You’ll know because your panels will still be operating (and generating free electricity) – or they won’t.
