A Guide to Choosing a Solar Power ProviderFebruary 11, 2020
There are a lot of solar power providers in the industry. As a result, it can often be difficult for consumers to differentiate between companies. In reality, though, choosing the right provider, one who will meet all your projects specific needs, can make all the difference in your transition to solar.
In this blog, we’ll answer all the most important questions you may have regarding choosing a solar provider, and also guide you through the process of landing on the company that’s right for you. Here are the most important things you should look for when choosing a solar power provider.
Do They Have Experience?
In the solar industry, experience is king. There is no better way to predict how a company will handle their future business than by looking at how they’ve performed in the past. That’s why at Sunpower by BlueSel, we have an entire page dedicated to the work we’ve done, and testimonials from satisfied clients.
Understanding the past is the way we can come closest to predicting the future. If a company has tons of satisfied clients, it’s relatively safe to assume you’re in good hands. If a company has a long list of unhappy customers, it may be best to exercise caution in moving forward.
The Quality of their Panels
The quality of a solar provider’s panels is also undoubtedly crucial to the success of the project. High quality solar panels, such as our Maxeon technology panels, are roughly 30% more efficient than the industry standard, conventional panels. Another benefit of these panels is that if a segment of the connection breaks, the rest of the panel will continue to function.
High quality products are the mark of any successful company. Be sure to do your research on a company’s products before deciding on your provider.
In the solar industry, the value of warranties of the hardware as well as craftsmanship, can’t be overstated. A solid way to determine the quality of a company’s warranty is by comparing it up against industry standard warranty.
The conventional solar panel warranty is typically around 10 years. A company that goes above and beyond, though, can offer warranties of up to 25 years on their panels. Regardless of the quality of the panels, accidents can happen, and a solid warranty can make all the difference when they do.
There is no blueprint to picking a solar provider, but there are ways in which you can limit your risk, and identify quality providers. Following the tips in this blog is a great way to begin your search for a solar provider.
