How to choose the best solar panel company?
There are many factors to consider when looking for the right solar company. The solar industry is filled with fly-by-night solar companies – both big and small – and you definitely don’t want to get burned.
The best solar companies will meet the following criteria:
Located near you
Been in business for 5 or more years
Employs their own installation crews
Uses quality, Tier 1 solar panels and inverters
In many cases, going with a local, family-owned solar company is the best choice. Not only does this support your community, but they often provide better customer service than large corporations. You can see this reflected in their reviews: large companies tend to have far worse scores, as they can’t give you the same individualized attention that you need throughout the entire solar installation process.
You’re going to want a solar installer who can help you with problems over the 25-year warranty of the solar energy system. That’s why it’s important to keep in mind how long a solar company has been in business and what their customer service reviews say.
