Climate change and increasing energy costs
Get several bids. Don't let high pressure sales tactics push you into a purchase. Remember that government incentives are TAX CREDITS not REBATES. If you are of modest income tax liability, it will take several years to get a benefit from your taxes.
Experience with Installer:
Arizona Southwest Solar was great to work with. They handled the permitting and were liaisons with my electric company. The crew was efficient, polite and knowledgeable.
The process was quite streamlined. There is a bit of a wait for an installation because renewable energy is in high demand in my area. I liked the sales rep very much. She was upfront about what I should and should not expect. She gave me a realistic picture of what solar could do for me.
