7 things the Solar Companies don't want you to know!
Solar Energy Collective has developed a process that allows us to cater to just about anyone. We have heard from many of our happy customers about their interactions with our competitors. Some of the less fortunate interactions left them with a stigma or negative idea when it came to our industry. We sat down with industry leaders, solar experts, solar install crews, sales people, past and current customers, licensed contractors, and project engineers to get a better understanding of the common misunderstandings we are faced with.
1. You don't use enough energy for solar to make sense.
Businesses make decisions based off the bottom line. Its no secret that people need to make money and the reality is profit margins are smaller on smaller systems. Some Solar Contractors decide its not worth their time and avoid helping customers that require less energy.
How are we different?
If your energy consumption is lower than the average and you require a smaller system we can help. We treat all of our customers equally. Whether you need 10 panels or 1,000, we will provide premium customer service and get you what you need.
2. Solar is a new bill that I cant afford.
For the longest time large solar providers would create systems that would prevent you from going into the Utility Company's tier 3 and tier 4 charge section. Although this sounds great many of their customers began to utilize more energy than before and would subsequently get billed by the utility company in the form of an annual "True-Up" Bill. These bills often come at the worse times and are typically surprises we don't like.
What do we do differently?
Here at Solar Energy Collective we work tirelessly to engineer systems that eliminate your Utility Electric Bill. In 95% of our projects we are able to propose a scenario where we do just that, eliminate your existing bill. What we do is create a solar system that offsets your energy consumption completely. By doing so we eliminate one bill (Electric Bill) and replace it with a new fixed lower cost. Our average customer experiences at 40% savings!
3. All solar is equal and the warranties are too.
Many of our competitors offer 25 year warranties on panel performance and panel workmanship. They typically offer 10-12 years on Inverter Systems and 10 years on overall construction workmanship.
What type of warranty does Solar Energy Collective Offer?
Through strategic alliances, Solar Energy Collective is able to offer a warranty that is not only superior to competitors, but is almost unheard of. Solar Energy Collective offers a 25 year warranty on all aspects of the job, Panel Output, Enphase Inverters, Workmanship, Roof Penetrations, and offers 25 years on the overall construction project.
