San Jose Solar Companies

It can be more than a little overwhelming when you search Yelp or Google for Solar Companies in San Jose and the surrounding Silicon Valley. Because California is one of the leaders in solar installation, there are many local solar companies to choose from. Here are some tips for choosing a solar company to do your installation:

  • Look for someone who has a North American Board of Certified Electrical Professionals (NABCEP) solar installation certificate. This means they have standardized special training in solar PV installation.
  • Experience is the most important factor in choosing a solar installer. Ask how many systems similar to yours the PV installer has completed. Ask if he or she foresees any complications and how those could be addressed.
  • Ask if the contractor plans to subcontract out parts of the work. Subcontracting decreases the level of quality control the lead contractor has over the project.
  • Request References.Ask if they provide a warranty for there service. A good installer will be proud of their work and will often warranty for 5-10 years.
