If you’re thinking about buying a big-ticket item, you’ll probably want to shop around before making your purchase. Consider an airline ticket for example. It’s not as simple as finding the cheapest flight – there are many factors that make a particular ticket the right option for you. You’ll also want to know: What time does the flight depart? Is it a direct flight, or will there be a layover? What’s the airline’s safety record? Or what’s their record of on-time arrivals?
By using a comparison-shopping approach, you can ensure that you have all of the relevant information in front of you before making a purchase. The same is true when shopping for solar power systems for your home or business. At EnergySage, we encourage every solar shopper to receive and compare multiple solar installation options on our website first, rather than solely talking to a single solar installer.
EnergySage recommends that you engage with 3 to 4 solar installers and financing providers in your area in order to understand the trade-offs between each option, and ensure that you maximize your return on solar investment. Take the time to review all of your solar energy quotes and ask questions about the key differences between the proposals.
When you receive multiple solar energy quotes from installers, you can compare equipment choices, financing options, and solar company reviews to find the installation quote that best suits your needs. By comparing multiple quotes for solar energy systems from installers in the EnergySage Solar Marketplace, you can save 10 to 25 percent on the cost of going solar as compared to your state averages. Installers on the EnergySage platform know that their information is being standardized and reviewed side-by-side alongside quotes from other solar companies, and this encourages them to provide a fair price and the best terms possible for your solar energy system.
Installing a solar energy system is a major purchase with many different components, all of which can impact your financial returns. However, comparing solar energy quotes doesn’t have to be complicated. You can use the EnergySage Solar Marketplace to make easy side-by-side comparisons between quotes from multiple installers and providers. Below are the key points for comparison as you review your solar energy quotes.
