Beware of Dealer Fees: The Hidden Cost of Switching to Solar in San Antonio 

Thursday, February 16th, 2023

Have you considered switching to solar but think it is too expensive? Many people believe they know all the facts about solar installation costs, but when it comes to the dealer fees, they draw a blank. Dealer fees are the number one reason most homeowners decide against switching to solar. They can add up to 20% to the solar deal before any financing fees are included. Even those who claim to be experts on solar panels are often unaware of dealer fees.

I recently had a conversation with a realtor who said she knew everything there was to know about solar, but when I asked her about dealer fees, she had a blank look on her face. If you are a homeowner in San Antonio who thinks they know all about solar, it is time to get a second opinion. All the other people in your neighborhood who have solar panels are not crazy, so why should you be left behind?

How long will San Antonio homeowners continue to be misled by short-sighted solar installers selling systems at inflated prices, leaving them with both a high electricity bill and the cost of the solar system?

Debunking the Myth of Two Bills: The Truth About Going Solar 

Monday, January 30th, 2023

Going solar is becoming an increasingly popular choice for homeowners in San Antonio looking to reduce their monthly energy expenses and support a cleaner energy future. However, one common misconception about going solar is that it will result in two bills – the old electricity bill and a new solar loan bill. This myth has been spread far and wide, often based on some truth.  

Unfortunately, many homeowners who go solar with the wrong company end up with two bills and this is how the myth has persisted. 

If you work with a reputable solar company, it is possible to install enough solar panels to eliminate the need for grid electricity and thus avoid two bills. Unscrupulous solar salespeople may push for fewer panels to keep costs lower, but this often leads to inadequate systems that do not offset the electric bill fully. 

It is important for homeowners to understand that investing in solar panels is a long-term commitment, and choosing the right solar installers and systems is crucial. Not only will the right solar panels save you money on your electricity bill, but they will also increase the value of your home. On the other hand, if you choose the wrong solar company or system, you may end up with a solar system that is underperforming, and you will still be paying for grid electricity. 

When it comes to finding the right solar company, it is important to do your research. Look for companies with a good reputation and a track record of successful installations. Make sure to ask questions about the size of the solar system they recommend, the type of panels they use, and their experience with similar projects. It is also an innovative idea to get multiple quotes from different companies so you can compare the costs and benefits of each option. 

In conclusion, while the myth of two bills with solar panels may have some truth, it is important to know that this can be avoided by choosing the right solar company and system. With the right solar array setup, it is possible to eliminate the grid electricity bill and save money on your monthly energy expenses. Investing in solar energy is a long-term commitment, so take the time to do your research and choose the right company for you.  

Do not fall for the myth of two bills with solar panels and make the smart choice for a cleaner energy future and lower energy costs.

Exposing the Dark Side of Solar Referral Sites: How They Trick Homeowners and Skew Evaluations 

Friday, January 27th, 2023

Are you in the market for a solar installer in San Antonio? Chances are, you have come across a plethora of solar referral sites that dominate the search results on Google. These sites claim to be unbiased evaluators of solar companies in the area, providing ratings and referrals to homeowners. But what if I were to tell you that these referral sites are not as unbiased as they seem?

In fact, many of these sites are paid by a select few of the top solar installers, skewing their evaluations and recommendations in favor of those who pay them. And it does not stop there – some of these referral sites even go as far as to fabricate information about solar companies in their evaluations.
