Choosing a Solar PV Installer: Questions to Ask Before You Buy

TIM KRUSE, Owner, Green Light Renewables

Regardless of who you choose to install your system,  asking these questions can help to ensure long-lasting quality and years of energy savings.

  1. Do you offer a free shade analysis and consultation?
  2. Do you have references from all types of systems (ground mounts, roof mounts, residential, commercial)?
  3. What are the advantages of going with a micro-inverter vs. a string-inverter system?
  4. Can you help with system monitoring?
  5. Can you help with permitting and utility hook-up?
  6. Can you show me the type of roof mount you use? Does it penetrate the roof?
  7. Where were the panels and inverters manufactured? What type of warranty is offered on each?
  8. Do you also offer an installation warranty?  What are the specifics of your warranty?
  9. If I need warranty work in the future, will you be available?
  10. What state, federal or utility company tax credits and rebates are available in my area (for home or business)?
  11. Are you NABCEP (North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners) certified? 
  12. Iowa recently adopted the 2020 NEC (electrical code).  Does the installation comply with Iowa law?

Tip:  Don't pay a salesman who then goes out and hires an installer. Realize extra savings by going with a seller-installer of your solar panels.  At Green Light, we sell, install, service, and guarantee each of our customers the industry's highest rated panels available. We support American manufacturers where possible.
