Selecting a Solar Service Provider: 4 Key Questions for 2024
Choosing the right solar service provider is crucial. Here are four questions to guide you in making an informed decision:
1. Certifications and Partnerships
Ask about the provider's certifications and partnerships with manufacturers and professional bodies. Certifications from reputable organizations like the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) indicate quality and reliability.
Determine the type of monitoring services offered. Efficient monitoring can identify performance issues early, saving time and money. Some providers offer advanced monitoring services or yearly check-ups.
4. Comprehensive Service Approach
Check if the provider sells and services their systems. A provider handling installation and maintenance ensures consistent quality and accountability throughout the system's lifespan.
Selecting a solar provider with the right qualifications, experience, and service approach is essential for a successful solar installation.
