The accuracy of solar quotes depends on the source from which you obtained them. Typically, online solar quote generators tend to be the most misleading. They can be downright inaccurate, and solar companies often cut corners to fulfill the quote’s promises.
A quote is only as good as the due diligence that goes behind generating it. So, the most accurate solar quotes are those that are manually created by solar installers based on your unique requirements.
Here are some of the factors that affect the accuracy of the solar quote you receive from a solar installer.
- Energy Requirements
When you generate a quick solar quote from online quote generator websites, the quotes you get are based on the energy requirements you estimated. But, did you know that your energy consumption may not be optimum?
As a best practice, solar companies advise you to optimize your home appliances’ energy consumption. It can be achieved by replacing fluorescent bulbs with LEDs, sealing cracks and leaks in attic or ventilation systems, adding tints to windows for better insulation, and so on.
These steps reduce your energy consumption significantly. So, the size of your perfect solar system may turn out to be smaller than what you calculated. A manually generated quote by solar installers will take into account these factors.
- Property Constraints
Most solar installations are done on the roof. So, your roof area, the shade falling on it, and the roof orientation play a vital role in your solar system design.
So, an accurate quote takes into account these factors for designing your solar installation. Some of the more tech-savvy solar installers can even use your house’s photographs or satellite images to give you a highly accurate quote.
How Green Power Energy Creates Highly Accurate Quotes
That trick is quite simple, really. We don’t offer stock quotes that may or may not be accurate. Instead, we generate custom quotes for each client manually based on their unique requirements.
More importantly, we rely on technology, especially satellite images, to estimate your roof area, take note of the structures casting shade on the roof, and other property constraints to create a highly accurate quote.
To ensure that our clients always get what they signed up for, we provide details of the equipment and brands we use in the quotes. That way, you never have to worry about any possible compromise in quality in favor of price from our side.
With Green Power Energy, you always get what you sign up for. That’s a promise!
