When it comes to installing solar panels, many national companies rely on local installers to handle the actual installation process. These national companies serve mainly as sales companies, connecting customers with local installers and offering them the solar equipment and limited warranties. While this may seem like a convenient option, customers end up paying more for the service due to the added cost of sales, while also losing a level of quality control. On the other hand, local companies like Progreen Solar offer a more comprehensive and cost-effective solution as an Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) company.
The Role of Sales Companies:
National companies, such as SunRun, Blue Raven, or Ion Solar primarily act as intermediaries between the customer and the local installer. They sell the solar equipment and provide the warranties, but the actual installation process is carried out by a local installer. This approach results in an average increase of $1 per watt, which amounts to roughly $7,600 in unnecessary expense for the typical homeowner. This added cost is due to the aggressive marketing and sales commissions charged by the national company.
The Benefits of EPC Companies:
Progreen Solar, on the other hand, is a green energy company that operates as an EPC. This means that we are capable of designing the solar system, procuring the necessary equipment, and carrying out the construction and installation process. By offering this comprehensive solution, we are able to provide our customers with the best equipment, warranties, and pricing, all while eliminating the added cost of sales.
As an EPC, Progreen Solar is able to offer a more streamlined and cost-effective solution. Our customers can trust that they are receiving the best equipment and warranties, while also enjoying the savings of working with a local company.
