Avoid The Costs And Chaos Of Fragmented Solar Install Projects

The importance of choosing a vertically integrated solar company cannot be overstated as you’ll soon learn from my experience. There’s a well-known saying that floats around: “Everything under the sun is in tune, but the sun is eclipsed by the moon.” Well, folks, my solar installation experience was somewhat like an eclipse, only it was my dreams that were obscured by a gigantic, lunar-sized misunderstanding.

Make Sure Your Sales Rep Is Part Of An Integrated Solar Company

It all started innocently enough when I met a smooth-talking solar sales rep from a not-so-vertically integrated solar company. Picture this: Someone as charming as a Southern politician and as charismatic as a daytime talk show host. Little did I know they had zero experience with my specific utility company. Come to think about it, I can’t confidently say it would have changed the sales pitch.

They were about as accurate as a blindfolded squirrel trying to find a nut.

They made promises that seemed to sparkle brighter than the North Carolina sun, but lo and behold, they were about as accurate as a blindfolded squirrel trying to find a nut. You can imagine my face when I realized these promises turned out to be costlier than a lobster dinner at a five-star restaurant.

In The Middle Of A Solar Fiasco

So, there I was, in the midst of a solar fiasco, and I thought I’d turn to the installation crew for some clarity. You can imagine my shock when I found out they were as affiliated with the sales company as I am with the Rockefellers. It turns out they were separate contractors who wouldn’t know the sales rep from Adam.

There I was, stuck making payments on a system as inactive as a sloth after lunch.

But here’s the cherry on the sundae of my solar misadventure: the whole installation was as unapproved as jeans at a black-tie event. And there I was, stuck making payments on a system as inactive as a sloth after lunch. You’d think someone, anyone, would’ve mentioned getting the proper permits was part of the deal!

Answers? Forget About It!

Of course, I tried contacting the company, but it was like trying to get a straight answer from a magic 8 ball. Their favorite game? Good ol’ fashioned blame-shifting, with finger-pointing that would make a professional dart player envious. It was as helpful as a chocolate teapot.
