$500 off 1st year subscription to SolarReviews.com for members
Around 30% of consumers who ultimately install solar panels will visit one of the SolarReviews web sites before doing so (SolarReviews.com, Solar-Estimate.org, and SolarPanelTalk.com). As an installer or a manufacturer, you have the ability to manage your online reputation (poor review mediation) and respond to customer reviews
Utilizing your profile, you will generate solar inquiries from interested consumers and business owners and increase conversion rates from all of your sales and marketing efforts
It’s important to remember at which point in the buying cycle reviews come into play. By the time a consumer has started reading reviews, they have identified an issue/need they have, worked out what service or product satisfies this need and now want to select a business to use. The path from reading online reviews to purchasing from a business is short, which means it’s crucial for local businesses to have a positive online reputation so they can convert ‘searchers’ into customers".
First 3 Bid Checks Free from Solar Bid Check!
Eliminate confusion about savings projections and give your proposals a winning edge!
Solar Bid Check is a resource for solar vendors and their customers to check and verify the accuracy of financial projections in solar proposals. Solar Bid Check provides an independent, objective analysis of the assumptions and calculations in solar proposals and will produce a Verification Report Stamp of Approval if the proposal meets reasonable industry standards.
Solar Bid Check was created by Utility Cost Management LLC (UCM), California’s leader in utility data analysis. Solar Bid Check’s method of analyzing solar vendors’ financial calculations was developed after UCM’s analysts identified costly discrepancies in solar proposals that were presented to UCM clients. UCM recognized that the complexity of savings calculations made it virtually impossible for solar vendors and customers to differentiate between proposals that were honest and accurate, and those that were not. Solar Bid Check relies on the System Advisor Model (SAM) developed by the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to make its own independent calculations using data from solar vendors’ proposals. When Solar Bid Check’s analysis is complete, the Verification Report is issued. The report will either approve the First-Year and Long Term financial projections, or it will describe where each proposal fell short.
