With the rise of off grid energy storage, many homeowners are turning to solar energy and solar panels. To get solar installation services, you\’ll need to hire a reputable solar company. But how do you choose a reputable solar company? Keep reading to find out.
First, you want to choose a reputable solar company that is licensed, bonded, and insured. To check if the solar panel company has these things, you can check with the state licensing board website.
On this website you can search by license number or even business name to learn about a company.
Second, you can read review online. Sites like Yelp, Google, Angies List, and BBB are great places to start. While positive reviews are great, negative reviews are more revealing. Negative reviews will show you how the company responds to issues when something went wrong. This speaks to their customer service style and how you could expect communication to be if an issue arises during your installation.
Since sub-contractors are prevalent in the industry, you should find out if any part of the project will be done by sub-contractors and research their company. Just like in the first step of researching to choose a reputable solar company, you can check the state website for the subcontractors as well.
