Posted on June 3, 2022 in by kcoughlin

When you want to go solar, you want quality work. It can be hard to find the best solar companies in Florida. With so many to choose from, how do you know who to go with? In this blog, we’ll walk you through finding the best solar companies near you.

The Key Things That Differentiate the Best Solar Companies in Florida

Best Solar Companies in Florida

From Google searches to solar companies knocking on your door, your choices are abundant. Solar is a big investment. You want to make sure you are getting the best products, quality craftsmanship, and service in the industry. While you can’t test drive a solar panel, just like you would test drive cars, it is important to do your research on the various companies. Here are some of the top things to look for that make the great companies stand out from the mediocre and bad.

  • License and Insurance. This may sound basic, but never make the assumption that a solar company you are working with is licensed and insured. Working with a company without these in place will lead to nothing but trouble down the road. Ask all the questions you need to, and your sales person should be able to present you with all necessary documentation. If they can’t, consider it a red flag.
  • Length of Time in Business. Sure, every business needs to start somewhere. However, don’t let your home be the guinea pig for a new solar company. It is better to go with someone who has been in business for a while. Such businesses will be able to show you a portfolio of work. Which brings us to our next point…
  • Reviews. The best way to find information about any company you plan on doing business with is doing an online search for reviews of their products and services. If you plan on trying a new restaurant, you automatically look at two things: their menu and their reviews. Do the same with a solar company! This is how you will get authentic feedback from people who have already experienced their work. It doesn’t get any more real than that! A salesman can chat your ear off, but no matter how convincing they are, check out online reviews.
  • Solar Permitting. Pulling the correct permits for solar installation is a vital – and lengthy – process. Unfortunately, some companies cut corners by not pulling the proper permits. Although each township has their own permitting requirements and processes, it is necessary to take the time to do so properly. If this is skipped in order to make a job move faster, you will pay the price for it eventually.
  • Honesty and Transparency. If you catch your salesperson in a lie, big red flag! It is important that the solar company you work with is fully transparent about everything from the timeline, cost, payment options, and expectations. They should welcome you to do research on the company and even to get competitor quotes. This means they stand behind their work.
