There are several areas where it makes sense to compare multiple options before moving forward, and those who are looking into their solar power options are a good example. When looking to compare pricing, features and related areas among your solar power options, the most common format here is the use of proposals from different providers.
At Intermountain Wind & Solar, we're proud to provide quality commercial and residential solar power solutions across Utah and Idaho, and we regularly build proposals to send to clients to allow them to view our comprehensive services and compare them with other providers. Here are some basics on why it pays to get multiple proposals as you're considering your solar options, plus the common elements typically included in solar power proposals and how to consider and compare them.
For those entering the solar space for the first time, it's easy to see solar panels as a purely aesthetic item – essentially, some sun-absorbing devices that will power your home or building. In reality, they're much more complex than this, and comparing proposals from different providers is the only way to get a full understanding of what each can offer.
This includes not only pricing and installation costs, but also maintenance fees, warranties and other critical pieces of information. These factors can vary widely between providers, and only by comparing proposals will you be able to determine which is truly the best fit for your specific needs.
Most solar power proposals will include several basic elements that allow you to compare them with one another:
Once you have multiple proposals in hand, here are some areas to consider as you compare them:
While your options will typically be relatively similar here across most providers, this is still an area worth checking. If one provider offers more favorable financing terms than others, perhaps they have a partner relationship or some other advantage that makes them worth considering.
Furthermore, don't hesitate to ask important questions like project delays or safety precautions now. This information can impact your decision and should be considered alongside other elements when making your final choice.
