First and foremost, a solar company does not need your personal information or payment specifics in order to give you a quote on your solar installation. Do not be afraid to refuse to provide these details until you have vetted the company and met with a representative.

A quality solar installation company will be ready to answer all of your questions regarding its reputation, experience, and qualifications. No question is too simple or comprehensive.

5 Questions to Ask Prospective Solar Installers

Ask a variety of questions regarding experience, maintenance, financing, and timeline. Here are some examples of informative questions:

  1. Can I see your license, and will you share your experience in the industry? The installer’s license and certifications should be easily accessible and ready to share with any potential clients. Ask for pictures and references for their past installations. Take note of how many years of experience they have in the industry.
  2. Is there a warranty associated with the solar panels and installation? Talk about warranties and guarantees. What if your solar panels do not save the energy promised, is there a plan for correction or moneyback?
  3. What if the roof needs repairing while solar panels are in place? What is the company’s policy regarding roof repair? Do they remove the solar panels and reinstall them? And at what cost?
  4. Are there insurance options? Although solar panels are built to withstand harsh weather conditions, is insurance available in case of accidents?
  5. What will ongoing maintenance look like for solar panels? Ask what you can expect when it comes to maintaining the complete integrity of the solar panels.
