In 2003, after my wife and I decided to install photovoltaic solar panels on our roof, we spent several months researching the renewable energy equipment available, installation costs, tax-rebates, and financing. We had developed what we thought was a firm understanding of the options available. We then reached out to solar panel contractors in our area and were surprised at what we found. First, we wasted a great deal of time contacting many different companies and providing the same information again and again. Second, we learned that much of the information we had so dilligently researched was outdated, incorrect, and impractical for the local weather and structural conditions of our home. Third, the process became so complicated for us that we nearly quit altogether.
After we finally were able to compile the several estimates we felt were necessary to make a decision, my wife and I chose one company for our project, DRQ Solar Installations (which I am sad to say has since gone out of business). Although they were not the cheapest, they were not the most expensive, and we were very impressed with their professionalism, knowledge, and experience. Altogether we were amazed with the job they did. Since that purchase, we substantially reduced our energy costs and when no one is home during the day and the sun is shining, we sell power back to the grid. You would not believe the feeling of empowerment!
Since we have been so happy with the decision to go solar, I almost cannot believe we nearly quit before installation! I decided that I would make this website to simplify the process for people just like us, who are ready to go solar and want to take it to the next level. Here on Solar-Quote.com you can fill out your information one time and get several quotes directly from local installers in your state.
Remember that the purpose of Solar-Quote is not to help you find the cheapest installer, but rather to allow you to make an informed decision based on many factors, only one of which is the price.
Thank you very much for visiting our site, and congratulations on your decision to go solar. If you have any comments about this site, please feel free to contact us at the email below.
