San Mateo California Solar Companies

San Mateo Park Solar

The California Bay Area leads the nation in solar installations. The city of San Mateo and the surrounding Penninsula are great places to go solar because of California’s solar rebates and San Mateo’s sunny, mild climate. There are dozens of solar companies to choose from in the area, and it can be a little overwhelming to decide who to go with.  Check out my list below of Keen For Green approved Solar Companies and some questions to ask when you are calling around.


Questions to ask potential installers:

1 - What is your license number?

2 - How long have you been installing PV systems? How many systems have you installed?

3 - Are you NABCEP certified?

4 - Do you guarantee your work?

5 - Do you have references?

6 - Do you subcontract out?

7 - Will you help me with the rebate process?
