San Francisco Solar Companies

In the San Francisco Bay Area we are fortunate to have a growing number of solar companies popping up – solar prices are going down as competition increases. But as a consumer, it is difficult to know where to start when you are considering solar companies for your project.

Here are some things to keep in mind when interviewing various companies:

  • 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.

  • Ask them about rebates available to you in the San Francisco area. A reputable installer will complete the applications and paperwork necessary for you to receive your rebates.
