What to Look for in a Solar Energy Installer
Deciding which solar energy installer to hire requires careful consideration. Choose wrong and, instead of a high-quality, trouble-free source of home power that quickly pays for itself, you may end up with a photovoltaic system that’s plagued with problems.
So, how do you choose from the dozens of solar installers that provide service in your area?
To find the right photovoltaic company to handle your installation – which, we hope, is Intermountain Wind & Solar — consider these factors.
Choose a Local Solar Energy Installer
National providers tend to focus on the bottom line. Local solar installers, on the other hand, are committed to quality service and customer satisfaction. Plus, local PV companies have an in-depth understanding of the region’s financial incentives, weather conditions and installation regulations – so, by going local, you’re bound to save more and have a smoother, easier experience.
Select a NABCEP-Certified Photovoltaic Provider
Voluntary certification from NABCEP*, or the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners, is a crucial qualification for a photovoltaic installer. This impartial organization ensures that providers have the knowledge, training and skill to successfully complete solar energy installations. Hire a NABCEP-certified installer, and you’ll have a highly-capable professional handling your project.

Consider Solar Energy Installation Experience
Experience makes a difference when it comes to designing and installing an optimized PV system. When evaluating photovoltaic providers, find out how long they have been in business. Choose a solar installer with a solid history of success and plenty of positive reviews, and you’ll likely have a better overall experience.
Make Sure the Photovoltaic Installer Doesn’t Outsource Any Work
Some photovoltaic providers don’t actually complete their equipment installations – they outsource the work. This can be problematic, as it means the people who install your PV system may not have sufficient training or experience. Worse, they may not even be licensed to perform work in your state! In any case, when it comes to solar energy installations, outsourcing is always bad news
