How to Choose the Right Solar Energy Companies in Edison, NJ

Many home solar customers spend an inordinate amount of time researching the right solar panels. On the other hand, they spend very little time when selecting a solar company.

You see, it’s the solar energy company that takes care of everything, including equipment sourcing, wiring, electrical setup, utility approval, government permits, interconnection setup, and utility approval, and even covers your installation with a 25-year service warranty. 

So, you should spend at least as much time choosing a solar company as you spend researching solar panels. If you choose the right company, they’ll advise you on what to look for in solar panels, and also advise you on the brands. 

Clearly, choosing a solar company is critical to the success of your home solar project. Follow these tips to improve the odds of success of your decision.

Look for Local Presence

A solar company with a local presence has a strong understanding of local markets. They know what local customers like and need. They also know everything about local laws, permits, and regulations to comply with. All your paperwork will be smooth when you choose a local company.

Also, when you deal with a local company, their reputation is everything to them. Conversely, a national solar company can withstand a poor online reputation through extensive marketing for customer acquisition.

With a local solar company, when you call into their office you get a helpful, local person on the phone.  With a national brand you may be on hold for a long time, not find answers right away, and even be transferred overseas.

So, choose a local solar company.

Top Branded Products 

Cursory research on the internet will bring you up to speed on which solar panel brands offer high-quality products and which don’t. So, when you approach a solar company, you’ll be prepared to evaluate them based on the brands they recommend to you. 

If they are pushing obscure brands that offer low-quality products or poor after-sales service, then drop the solar company from your shortlist. 

Excellent Solar Financing Options

The best solar companies usually have partnerships with solar financing companies for the convenience of their customers. These relationships make it possible for their customers to avail themselves of solar loans, solar leases, and power purchase arrangements with minimum hassle.

So, enquire about your solar company’s financing options and compare them with the offerings from different solar companies. That should give you a pretty good idea about your solar company.

License and Insurance

It’s genuinely surprising how many solar customers don’t even bother to check whether their solar company is licensed and insured. Sure, they may not intend to damage your roof, but mishaps happen. And when they do, the contractor’s insurance will cover the damage to your roof.

We hope these tips help you choose the right solar company.
