To avoid putting yourself in such a tragic situation, we have come up with a set of questions you should ask before your solar panel installation begins. It’s a little homework for you, which will surely help you have a hassle-free, environment-friendly and advantageous energy transition.
The decision-maker questionnaire:
In this section, let’s have an in-depth understanding of the importance of these solar energy questions and how it directly influences your decision.
1) Can I see the work portfolio for the projects you have completed?
It’s a good practice to make necessary confirmations and checks before handing out the contract. Ask your solar provider about the solar systems they have installed. It will give you a fair idea of how they proceed further to deliver results.
At Vista, we recommend our clients to physically go and visit the sights to understand the quality of work and gather information, learn about experiences from our existing clients.
2) How can you prove your commitment to quality?
Many solar providers will claim that they provide quality service. However, you should look for licenses and registration of the company before deciding anything. Try and collect all vital data. You should make all the background checks before heading further.

3) Can you suggest other ways to save power in my home?
Going solar unquestionably brings two profits at home. It saves power bills and reduces your carbon footprint. So when solar panel installation team visits your house for quotation, do not forget to ask them about additional ways to save power.
