How does Solar.com make money?
Sales and marketing costs in the solar industry are extremely high, ranging from $3,000 to $6,000 per project. We’ve eliminated customer acquisition and sales costs for solar providers, and in doing so, we get paid a fraction of what it typically costs them when we deliver a signed contract. It is a success fee paid directly from the solar provider to Solar.com. We will never charge you.
How does Solar.com stay unbiased?
The only way we make money is if we deliver you an outstanding solar option you choose to move forward with. Our fee is flat across solar providers, equipment, financing, etc. This makes our platform and our solar experts completely agnostic to the equipment used in the system. The one and only thing we care about is delivering you the best value.
What sort of solar equipment do you use?
Our platform has thousands of equipment options. If the quality of solar equipment is high enough to meet our qualifications, we offer it. Many of our customers tend to choose top tier equipment, including LG, SolarWorld, Solaredge, and Enphase, to name a few.
Who will find out if I qualify for rebates and tax credits?
Solar.com has an extensive database of solar incentives that we are constantly updating. To ensure we maximize your savings, we’ll be sure to plug in all the rebates, tax credits, and other incentives available for your project.
Do you guarantee the best price?
We guarantee the best price for the same value deal. If we’re offering premier equipment and you show us a bid with low quality equipment, we’ll need to adjust our equipment offering to match it. The same goes for the quality of an installer. An installer that is more bankable will demand a higher price because they’re more likely to be able to stand behind their warranties.
What warranties does Solar.com offer?
Solar.com offers the industry’s only triple coverage warranty. You’ll have manufacturer warranties, solar provider warranties, and the Solar.com production guarantee. We’re so confident in our solar provider partners, that we stand behind their work by guaranteeing solar power production for the first year.
Will I sign a contract with Solar.com?
Your installation contract will not be with Solar.com – it will be directly with the solar provider we match you with using Solar.com’s standardized contract. We’ll e-send you the contract via Docusign only after your selected solar provider has signed off. Solar.com will sign a contract guaranteeing your system’s production for the first year.
