If you’re ready to invest in a Florida solar installation, then congratulations! You’re on the way to saving thousands of dollars. But next, you’ll need to decide which Florida solar company to use. Which is best? Here’s a look at why choosing your local Florida solar installation company will pay off:
Local Solar Company or Tesla?
That’s probably the first question that comes to mind. Understandably so. Tesla’s marketing has made them a household name across the world. Their owner has his hand in cars, solar roofs and even space rockets. But, in our opinion (and our customers’) that doesn’t make them the best Florida solar company. Here’s why:
1) Better Warranties
Local providers such as Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company” offer a 25-year warranty on all equipment including end phase inverters (10 year on the installation). While Tesla Solar offers just a 10-year comprehensive warranty.
Tesla’s 25-year warranty only covers the panels. So solar inverters, batteries, roof mountings and leaks repairs will all have to come out of your pocket after ten years! Yikes!
If you go local with Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company”, you could save thousands of dollars in repairs over the next 25-years as we take care of our customers like we always have done. We care.
Go local and you’ll also get a 100% guarantee. That’s because local Florida solar companies are confident about their ability to perform to a high standard AND because, once again, they care. They don’t want to see you left out of pocket with a flawed solar system.
2) Local Florida Solar Companies Are Often Cheaper
We could list hundreds of reasons why local might be better than big-name solar providers, but obviously, a major consideration is always the price.
According to a study by National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), larger solar installers were shown to give a higher quote than smaller, local installers 70% of the time. Those quotes were 10% more on average too!
“Large installers offered a higher quote price than a corresponding non-large installer in about 70% of pairings.”
We always advise you to consider your local Florida solar company and ask them for a quote. Who knows, maybe you’ll save thousands?
3) No Middlemen
When you go local for your Floria solar installation, you avoid frustrating communication issues. Big multinational companies are known for having call centers or, worse, online no-reply systems.
We’ve seen countless reviews of other companies where the customers are left with significant problems (even leaking roofs) and problematic customer service.
As a local solar provider, we pride ourselves on making customer needs a priority from start to finish – and beyond!
You’ll always speak to a human. Our owner speaks directly to you about your solar vision and never hands your over to an external sales team. You’re always in direct contact with the people completing the work.
That saves you time, energy and potentially dollars when it comes to problems and repairs.
4) Custom Designs that Fit Your Home
For local Florida solar companies like us, quality is more important than quantity. We care about making every Florida solar installation a success. Some other companies sometimes compromise on the smaller details to move more sales.
We avoid cookie-cutter approaches and design solar systems for your vision, bringing:
- Optimized energy output.
- Fully off-grid systems, which many big names can’t provide.
5) You Won’t Get Oversold.
Say you want a roof of solar panels? That doesn’t necessarily mean you want an entirely new roof built, right?
That’s exactly why we only build and charge for what you want. So, you don’t waste thousands on a solar roof featuring an entirely new roof that you didn’t actually want or need.
6) You’re Helping Your Community
When you opt for your local Florida solar company rather than a massive international billionaire back company, you’re helping your community with:
- A greener local community with fewer carbon emissions
- More jobs
- Helping to maintain the American dream in your community
- Backing a company that has been serving locally for nearly two decades, to continue.
As a local Florida solar company, we’re facing heavy competition these days from big-name companies. But thanks to local Florida residents, we’re still here, making homeowners and businesses in our community greener and happier year by year.
Plus, that money you spend locally gets injected back into the community because we live here. It’s spent locally, not sent to some billionaire’s pockets.
7) Dedicated Solar Installation Crews
Local Florida solar installation companies don’t use external contractors. So, you know that the team that turns up is:
- The same team that you’ve read all the reviews about.
- Highly, trusted and experienced.
- Not out-of-town, part-timers.
- They have solar knowledge.
- Reports directly back to their boss
Those last two points are important. Many bigger companies use teams of roofers or contractors who actually know very little about solar. Local teams do. They’ve been on the job for years, not just drafted in to fill vast demands.
Reporting back to the boss also creates a level of accountability that simply doesn’t exist with national companies. In fact, with Florida Power Services, our owner visits your property and is often on-site during the work.
8) We Understand Your Local Area
Every neighborhood and town has its own unique challenges. That might not seem important when it comes to solar installation, but you’d be surprised.
We’ve worked throughout Florida on all kinds of roofs and know the demands of different tile and shingle types.
Because of our experience, we ensure the most suitable materials are used and the setup is perfect for optimizing the sun’s rays in your area.
We also think about potential storms and wind speeds. National solar companies are cookie-cutter setups that often ignore the demands of each location.
9) Local Often Has Better Ratings
Why? Because we have a reputation to uphold that is built upon caring about people like you. If you use a bigger company, you’re just a drop in the ocean to them. So when things go wrong, it might not be as big a deal as it is to us.
10) Local Often Use the Best Materials
We also use materials and components of the finest quality, to ensure your solar roofs is: A) Running optimally and B) Less likely to hit problems and need repairs.
In the long run, that saves you thousands of dollars through better energy performance and less repairs once your 25-year warranty is expired.
11) Affordable and Up-front Pricing
The best local Florida solar companies will offer ways to help you maximize your savings! We offer no money out-of-pocket solar loans at .99%, for example.
The solar company should always be honest about costs and never tack on extra charges. It’s well documented that big companies have made sudden price changes. We don’t do that.
