What You Must Know

As with most industries, solar is always evolving. As a consumer, it’s critical that you understand the solar market before making such an important investment in your future. Solar has changed in the last few years. What you may have learned before might no longer align with today’s conditions. Although solar technology itself has changed very little, the quality of the installation now varies dramatically from contractor to contractor. Go with the wrong contractor and it could be the difference between a worry-free solar panel system, or years of headaches and an out-of-business company.

What you, the consumer, needs to be aware of is the barrier-to-entry into the solar business has become low. This means nearly anyone willing to climb a ladder can start a solar company. There are virtually no checks and balances in place to ensure they are qualified to deliver what they promise. Installation costs, such as skilled labor and quality components, are where contractors cut corners first. Unfortunately any consumer not willing to do their research has little chance of making sense out of the 700+ solar companies in Southern California

Protect yourself. Read online ratings and reviews. Look at BBB standings. Ask friends and family. Look for awards from reputable organizations. See who they have partnered with and who is endorsing them. How many years have they been in business? Do they have thousands of installations under their belt? These are all question you need to be asking. Never base your decision on how well you connected with your salesperson, they are not who will be showing up to do the installation. And most of all, never select a contractor simply because they had the lowest price.
