Despite import tariffs and changes to solar tax credits, solar energy has never been more popular than today. Homeowner’s continue to see the massive value in going solar. By switching to a cleaner energy source buyers can lower their monthly energy bills, while also increasing the value of their homes.
If you own your home and have a large energy bill then the question of going solar should not be “if” but “when.” With the Solar Tax Credit changing at the end of 2019 it would appear that time is “now.”
As this is the year to go solar the next step is choosing what company to work with. Prospective solar buyers should take many aspects of the company they work with into consideration:
- What’s size solar company should I work with?
Solar companies come in many sizes. The largest companies, such as Tesla or Sun Run, can handle a huge amount of projects at the same time. However, the quality of work can be inconsistent and you can often feel like “just another project” for them to complete. The smallest companies can provide an elevated level of personal-touch to a project. However, they can lack personnel and experience which can lead to project delays.
- Do I want a solar company that sub-contracts or does everything in-house?
Sub-contracting is used by solar companies both large and small. It allows these companies to scale projects by continually out-sourcing as needed. This increases the speed at which they can begin projects and lowers the operating cost. On the downside, using sub-contractors can lead to many problems. The quality of work can be inconsistent, as different teams are performing each project. Additionally, as the work done was not performed directly by your solar company there might be problems to fix issues you come across later due to poor work. Companies that do all of the installations in-house have higher operating costs and could take longer to begin construction of your system. By keeping control of everything they can insure quality of the work done and can provide service warranties you can feel confident in.
- How important is a solar company’s reputation?
Reputation is everything in business, as you are only as good as the last project you worked on. It’s critical that customers can rely on you for honesty and integrity no matter the project’s size and scope.
