  1. Learn hg8868皇冠下载’s rules. hg8868皇冠下载’s rules, 能源价格, and energy credit values for solar energy are not a contract and are subject to change at any time with Idaho Public Utilities Commission approval. A solar installer cannot guarantee hg8868皇冠下载’s pricing, energy credit values, or energy credit transfer eligibility will not change. Customers can learn about hg8868皇冠下载’s rules on our 网站 or from our Customer Solutions Advisors at 1-800-632-6605.
  2. Compare online reviews and check with the Better Business Bureau for any complaints. For companies that operate in multiple states, focus on local, relevant and recent customer reviews.
  3. Check qualifications. 还记得, the warranties on solar equipment can last 10–20 years, so you’ll want a company with history and staying power. Also, clarify the process for getting service or help if you need it after your installation. Ensure your installer is licensed, bonded and insured. Installers should also provide you with the legally required information from the Idaho Residential 能源 System Disclosure Act.
  4. 规划你的系统. A professional installer can help you decide the proper system size and equipment. 使用我们的 太阳能的清单 to help you through the process. Additionally, exploring online calculators like PV Watts Calculator can help you determine the right equipment size for your specific needs.
  5. 要求推荐信. After narrowing down your search, ask the solar companies to provide references of prior customers.
  6. Get multiple quotes. Shop around just like you would with any large purchase to ensure you are getting the best price you can.
  7. Learn equipment warranty information. Verify with the installer that the equipment being installed is warrantied for the life of the loan. Most inverter manufacturers provide a 10–12-year standard warranty. Also verify if there are any service charges for replacing or repairing malfunctioning equipment. Most solar equipment manufacturers’ warranty terms and conditions can be found on their 网站s.
  8. Read sales agreements carefully. If you decide to move forward with solar, read your purchase agreement carefully before signing. Ensure any verbal promises or guarantees, including any pricing or credit guarantees, are included in the agreement. Check for anything that contradicts what you understood. Ask for edits to the agreement, if necessary.
