Need Residential Solar Energy Contractors? Where to find the best one?
If you are looking for a way to convert your home to solar power, you will need someone who is experienced in that area. But the question arises "How do I find a reliable domestic solar power contractor?".
When you choose your contractors there are some things that are important to know (depending on where you live)for example,
California's solar rebates are available only to homeowners who use installers registered with the state, and all those contractors listed on the The California Energy Commission Web site will qualify.
Homeowners in Oregon who wish to receive Energy Trust's incentives must have their system installed by an Energy Trust approved contractor. The Oregon Department of Energy maintains a list of tax credit-certified solar technicians. Many state-certified solar technicians are also Energy Trust trade ally contractors.
In Australia, in order to qualify for the solar power rebate, the person who carries out the installation of the solar panels must be accredited for design and installation of photovoltaic systems by the Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE). A list of BCSE accredited designers and installers is available from the Clean Energy Council - or alternately you could contact a designer/installer and ask for proof of their accreditation.
As is always the case when dealing with any type of contractor, personal attention and responsiveness are important. If you find that one solar contractor seems to be able to communicate more clearly and is more responsive than others, you will probably want to take this into consideration when making your choice.
Ultimately you want to be able to deal with a contractor that can design a system for your home, sell you the solar modules and install them. To do this you will need to find a contractor that has a good track record and a load of good references. The longevity of their business is also important as you'd want to be able to go back to the same installer in the future, should you experience any problems.
