You decided you want to upgrade your home with a solar panel system…great! But now what? If you want a high-quality solar installation, which you definitely do, you first need to find a high-quality solar installation company! While it’s pretty easy to find a large national scale solar company, there are many benefits to choosing a local installer. These benefits include:
When you are working with a smaller local company, they have less clients. This means they have much more time to provide you with more one-on-one customer service. Also, local companies strongly rely on word of mouth marketing. This means they are extra dedicated to making your experience great.
On average, hiring a large-scale company costs about $2,300 more for solar installation. They know they are the popular choice, and can charge accordingly.
Smaller local companies are likely to have a smaller team of employees and don’t contract out. This means the employees are held accountable by the company owner and the same employees who start the job, finish the job. Now that you know why you should be seeking a local company, we can get to the big question…
Ask around! Do your neighbors have solar panels installed? If so, don’t be afraid to ask them what company they used and what their experience was! Use social media to your advantage and reach out to people in the area who also went with a local company.
