What to look for when choosing the best solar installer for your projects
When doing a solar review to select the right company for your project, you need to ask the right questions.
Asking the right questions will make it easy and faster for you to identify the perfect solar installer.
Here are some of the questions to ask when selecting a solar installer for your solar installation projects.
1. What’s the capacity of the solar company?
This answer to this question depends on the scale of the project and the capacity of the solar company.
Most small scale solar installers have expertise in setting up solar power systems for small scale purposes.
Their capacity will be able to build solar energy systems for homes, small shops and SMEs.
However, they may not be fit to carry out larger projects like building a solar mini-grid system.
On the other hand, a full-stack solar installation company will be able to handle both small and large scale projects.
This makes it easy for you to use them for all of your projects and maintain consistency products and service delivery.
2. Does the solar installer have the necessary licenses and insurance?
Solar installation projects are very risky because it involves the use of very fragile solar panels.
Also, home solar installers most times install solar panels on rooftops and are susceptible to accidents.
To be sure that you do not bear an unnecessary cost of damages, you need to make sure that the solar company has insurance cover for all products.
The insurance cover should be valid during shipment as well as during installation.
Ensure that the solar installer has government-approved licenses or face the consequences of leaving your project to amateurs.
3. Does the installer provide warranties and after-sale services?
Warranties are really important for solar projects to ensure that the system does not breakdown within a short period of time.
Warranties generally range from 1 to 10 years.
You need to be sure that your installer is available to provide you with all the help you need after the project is completed.
That way, you can confirm that the system is in perfect working order before you finally take full responsibility and liability.
4. Has the solar company worked on other solar projects?
When conducting solar reviews, you may want to ask this question to know whether they plan to learn on with your project.
Make sure your installer has a good track record and experience in setting up solar panels.
To make it easy for you, you can request for the solar provider to show you solar power systems done for previous clients.
With pictures and other proof of project existence, you can conclude whether the installer is the right pick for the job or not.
5. What are people saying about the solar installation company?
A company becomes popular when a lot of people keep using their products or services.
Although, some good solar companies may not be so popular, yet they are good.
For those ones that are really popular, you need to read online reviews about them.
Carefully observe the negative reviews from customers.
If you notice any pattern or similar complaints, it is most likely that you will suffer the same problem.
While some clients may overexaggerate their experience with the solar installer, you should be thorough with your conclusions.
