I’m going to place my bet that although you are looking into the idea of going solar, you’re just not quite ready to go spend all that cash on solar panels just yet. Am I right? All sorts of advertisements about “Get A Free Consultation” and “$0 Down – Go Solar Today!” on websites loaded with cheap stock photo of all sorts of creepy smiling people.
Kind of like a bunch of car sales commercials if you ask me. “Come on down to our lot and Save Save Save, but only this Sunday Sunday Sunday!”
Yeah right, nobody’s buying that one anymore. I’ve got what I think is a better idea and I’ll throw it against the wall here so you can decide for yourself.
My Advice: Take a long, slow approach to buying solar panels and make a very educated, very calculated decision. Do your research and when the time is right, pull the trigger on something that makes sense, not what the Out-Of-Work Tile Guy is pushing on you.
Did you ever think you would here a solar “salesman” tell you that? Interestingly enough, this is precisely why Echo Energies has done so well over the years. You’re not going to have a slick salesman come in with a big and sometimes over sized solar system to force down your throat.
You’ll get education first, then an honest price for honest work and you’ll get it all wrapped up with a smile and handshake from a true solar professional.
You see, me and my team our out here to help everyone on this planet get solar for their home, their business, heck even their cell phone (yes, you can get that). The first step, is education and granted, you might end up buying your system from someone else, but that’s ok with us because this is about something bigger ~ energy independence and living a sustainable life. Something tells me though (*cough* our customers *cough*) that you’ll be so satisfied with the experiences you have with me and my team, you’ll see no reason to go anywhere else.
