With solar on the up-and-up and new technologies being developed all the time, the sector is really thriving. This is great for consumers as more investment leads to more cost-efficient technology and, ultimately, financial benefits for end users of solar energy. A booming industry also leads to more and more solar contractors popping up. This is good news for consumers as well, keeping prices competitive, but it can also present a challenge in itself. With so many possible options, how are you supposed to pick a residential solar contractor? Well, there are a few things to look out for when you’re making your choice.

 

#1. Certifications

It might seem like an obvious tip but it’s important to point it out nonetheless - your solar contractor should be properly certified and accredited. All the fantastic customer service and low prices in the world won’t make up for a lack of proper certification. Look out for a residential solar contractor with NABCEP (North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners) certification before taking the plunge.

 

#2. Reviews

Whether it’s a personal recommendation or an online resource such as Yelp or Better Business Bureau, opinions from previous solar customers can offer fantastic insight ahead of any commitment to a contractor. Reviews can offer an excellent insight into the positives and negatives of a residential solar contractor. Just be discerning, not all reviews hold equal weight. Don’t forget the value of speaking to a past customer directly either. In fact, YSG Solar offers a fantastic referral program which is definitely worth looking into if you have a friend or neighbor with a YSG solar system.

 

#3. Financing Options

If you’re interested in going solar, it’s probably fair to say that the financial benefits of solar energy are a big selling point. With this in mind, it’s important to choose a residential solar contractor capable of offering the kind of financing options that drew you toward solar in the first place. A host of fantastic incentives and rebates are on offer for solar customers across the country, so it’s important to pick a residential solar contractor that can you offer you a package which allows you to reap the full rewards of these incentives and rebates.
