How To Tell When A Solar Deal Is Not On The Level
We have written an article recently that covered what you should be looking for when choosing a solar retailer and we encourage you to check it out if you are looking to make the change to solar. That aside there are certainly a few quick tips and pointers we can give to help avoid ending up with a lemon. The first step would be asking about the company giving you the offer, things such as how long they have been operating in the solar industry and where they are based.
Being on the lookout for promises that sound too good to be true is another must. Can solar save you money on your power bill? Yes. Can it return a profit under the right conditions? Yes. Is a solar supplier able to promise these things right off the bat without looking at your individual needs and situation? No. Rushing to get a signature on the dotted line is always a sign that something is not on the level.
Asking about rebates and warranties is also a great idea. It takes time to process rebates and there are requirements in order to claim them so companies looking to get in and out will often completely omit this aspect from the conversation. Asking about warranties is also effective but keep in mind just because they say the products have them doesn’t mean it’s true. It’s about being proactive in finding out as much as you can before making a decision.
