Questions & Answers
Motivation for installing solar panels: “Started from a saving energy standpoint, we have a saltwater fish tank and other things that use a lot of energy, and I’m a technology person, growing up in the 70s it was always something that was just around the corner. As a parent, its cool to show the kids we are making a positive environmental income . It just sits up there an creates clean energy, it's pretty passive.
How did you hear about Green Power Energy: “SolarReviews.com. Originally we had a door knocker come from another company which is what got us started. Their guy came out to meet with the family, and then we decided to get other quotes. Within 24 hours we set up an appointment with Green Power Energy through SolarReviews.com. As a project manager I was impressed with the google calendar invite that was sent, that's how the business world works.”
Considerations in choosing Green Power Energy as installer: “First of all, our sales person, Tony, was great. It started with his calendar invite, he showed up on a sunday afternoon. He showed up on time, and did not turn into a high pressure sale, he was great. He wrote down all the numbers, left me with all the numbers, we scheduled a second appointment so my wife could be there, and we ended up signing up on the second appointment. My wife looked at me and said, let's do it, this sounds great. He probably spent a good 4 hours with us in the first two sessions, and nothing was a dumb question.” “One of the greatest lines that Tony had was when my wife said, ‘what happens if my system doesn’t make solar anymore?’ Tony looks at here completely deadpan and says “well, if the sun doesn’t come out again, we have bigger problems.” “Above our experience with our sales person, in all the research I did, Green Power Energy came up as number one. I started going through the site, the videos were great, I saw the solar farm, it just seemed Green Power Energy was really invested. Other companies sounded more “clickbait.” I liked the customer testimonial videos a lot too, as my biggest fear was going with a company that wasn’t going to be able to back it up.”
Experience with permitting and installation process: “Eric’s installation crew came out and they were fantastic. They were very professional and very respectful. I left them there with access to the house. It was very comfortable, my wife and kids were comfortable with them, and they took the time to explain what was going on. They were great. They were here when they said they were gonna be here, and answered all our questions. I’m grateful for how they treated the house, even taking care to take off their boots before they came inside.”
