US Solar Report: Consumer-Focused Publication

US Solar Report: A Consumer Focused Publication,

US Solar Report: A Consumer Focused Publication because it’s exactly what the home solar industry needs, the unvarnished truth! The focus of this site is on the consumer, unlike the solar companies. Most of the information available about solar is either a solar company explaining all the benefits of solar and tax credits and offsetting your power bill. They never talk about the additional costs that so many unsuspecting buyers have endured.

Solar has been marketed in a manner that is similar to how automobiles. companies have made an art out of selling a payment instead of home solar. The sellers of home solar have used tactics that squeeze every ounce of the benefits, the profits that belong to the homeowner. The marketing of home solar has driven up the cost of solar for homeowners from the very beginning.

The way home solar has been marketed creates so many additional costs for the buyer that have nothing to do with solar. The following is a typical breakdown of what solar companies prices were and the additional costs.

Now it’s important to understand that these are the high-end examples from 2017 through 2019. Companies are really working hard to eliminate some of these costs to be competitive and stay in business. Unfortunately, they can’t break away from this business model because it’s so profitable.

A Solar Companies’ Cost Breakdown

Add-Ons To Every Solar Proposal Cost of Add-Ons
The Cost of Salesperson $3000
Sales Manager $1500
Proposal Builders and Permitting Department $1000
Overhead: Rent, Auto Insurance, Vehicles, and Utilities $1000
Cost of Leads and Marketing $1000

Federal ITC Is 26% Off The Above Cost for Qualified Buyers
(Many Solar Companies Use Tax Credit as a down-payment 12 to 15 months after the deal is closed)

The reason why solar companies use this structure is that the solar company doesn’t pay those additional costs, the buyer does.

The solar company doesn’t lay out any of the costs until the finance company funds their account.
