When companies come out and offer something that seems too good to be true, you need to ask yourself where they are saving that money from!
There are so many options out there and so many companies promising the world plus more. Companies will do almost anything along with high-pressure sales tactics, Unrealistic offers, or sales discounts off inflated costs to highlight just a few tactics that can be expected.
Reviews are the only true representation and reflection of what you can expect in your solar experience with a certain company!
Find out when your system will be installed.
It is very important in our opinion to know exactly when your install is going to be undertaken and ensuring you have options if that obligation is not met.
companies will often promise an unachievable install date in the sales process as a tactic to entice you to sign up and lock you in with a deposit!
Find out who will be installing your Solar System.
Often, the person that is speaking to you about your solar system is only just a salesperson.
On top of that, the salesperson that is speaking to you is working for a solar company.
That solar sales company will not be carrying out the installation themselves.
They will most likely be contracting the install out to a separate company.
You need to know who exactly will be undertaking your install so you can do all the research required on the installers in conjunction with the solar company!
Find out where they are located and go visit!
Knowing the solar company, you are speaking with has a physical address you can walk into is very important in making your decision in who you will be doing your switch to solar with!
Some companies out there operate interstate or even offshore!
