Switching to solar energy will not be a success unless the right choice is made when determining the solar contractor for your project. Your potential solar contractor should have expertise, licenses, insurance, certifications, and a stellar reputation.
Certifications. Infiniti Energy Services has the best certification in the solar industry, the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners’ (NABCEP’s) Solar PV Installation Professional Certification. Do not consider any solar company that does not have this certification. Find out what other certifications they may have. Remember NABCEP is number 1.
License and Insurance. Your solar installer should be licensed and insured. This can vary by state. It is important that you verify their licensing and insurance with your state.
Reputation. Make sure your contractor has an excellent reputation and is willing to supply references. Do your research. See if there are any complaints against your potential solar installer. Find out how long they have been in business and how many installations they have performed.
Qualifications. Contractors from various backgrounds are expanding into solar. Make sure your potential contractor has a solid background in solar and is willing to share its information about the various solar energy systems they have installed for previous clients. Seek out as many customer reviews as possible. You can find reviews at the company’s social media accounts, the Better Business Bureau and online business directories.
Quality Assurance. Find out what warranties are included with the solar materials, such as the panels and inverters. The design and construction of the solar energy system should be covered under a workmanship warranty. Proven qualified installers with excellent skills are in a position to offer this type of warranty.
Subcontracting. Your solar contractor may decide to subcontract portions of your installation. Subcontractors should be used on a limited basis and should have a long-standing relationship with the contractor. The contractor should be upfront about using a subcontractor and should oversee and stand by the subcontractor’s performance. Subcontracting arrangements can be effective if handled correctly.
Going solar is a major investment and it is imperative that you choose a solar contractor that you can trust. You will want an organization that will stand behind its workmanship and product. More importantly, you will want to feel as though you can have an on-going professional relationship with this organization.
