Solar Installers in Pleasanton, California

Pleasanton Solar

Pleasanton is a great place to go solar because of the combination of local, state, and federal solar installation rebates and the sunny climate. However, there are dozens of solar installers to choose from in the area which makes beginning your solar project a bit overwhelming to decide who to go with.  Check out my list below of Keen For Green approved Solar Installers in the Livermore/Pleasanton area and some questions to ask when you are calling around.

Questions to ask potential installers:

1 - What is your license number? A must. All contractors must be licensed in the state of California.

2 - How long have you been installing PV systems? How many systems have you installed? You don’t want to be a general contractor’s first solar installation.

3 - Are you NABCEP certified? It is not necessary for an installer to be certified, but NABCEP certification does mean that the installer has undergone rigorous training and meets strict criteria.

4 - Do you guarantee your work?

5 - Do you have references? A contractor should happily provide you with satisfied customers.

6 - Do you subcontract out? It is important that your contractor oversees closely the work that is being done on your property. If they do subcontract parts of the work out, make sure to find out how the work is overseen and how frequently they have used the company they contract with.

7 - Will you help me with the rebate process?
