Switching to Solar Costs You Nothing Upfront
Every time we get into a discussion with somebody who is in the process of making up their mind on switching to solar, we always get asked about owning it. After we explain it all to them, they end up saying, “Never mind, I don’t want to do it.”
You Don't Pay Us At All
That could be for several reasons. One could be they might feel like we’re trying to sell them something. By the way, you’ll never pay us or any other dealer for solar a dime.
The only thing we’re selling is the fact that if we can help you save money, we make money from the financing company. They pay us. You don’t pay us at all. The point is, is it’s not like we’re somehow going to try to get an extra dime out of you or something.
The other thing that comes up is going with a power purchase agreement. It gets a little confusing for people when researching on their own, so let me break it down real simple for you in a straightforward way.
Save Money and Cut Your Bill in Half
No matter what you choose, loan, or a power purchase agreement, no matter what, you’re going to save money. If you’re in California and you don’t have PG&E, which is Pacific Gas and Electric or SDG&E, San Diego Gas Electric, then I could be wrong. I shouldn’t say “no matter what,” but those are the two major players. Their rates on average after all the fees and everything is built-in, it’s going to be almost double than getting solar, even if you have a loan or a power purchase agreement which means you don’t even own the system yet because, with a loan, you’re paying it off. Overall, realize it’s a monthly payment. It’s like switching your utility company over to a solar utility company.
Either way, it doesn’t matter. It is anywhere from a minimum of 20% and up to even 60% and 70%. I wouldn’t expect 60% and 70%, first of all. But let’s say it cuts your bill in half or maybe by 40%. Why wouldn’t you do that?
You're Always Going To Save Money
Here’s the other thing. You’re always going to save money. It’s isn’t a DIY project. The installation is done for you with no money down. You don’t have to do anything to get it on your roof. Our installation team will come and install it for you. With a power purchase agreement, it has all the maintenance and monitoring included. There’s nothing else you need to do. People think there’s a catch, but there isn’t one.
Sure, you’re agreeing to a new system of producing power if you even want to call that a catch, but that’s obvious. You’re switching your utility company. It’s like switching from Verizon to Sprint or vise versa. I always use that example because it’s so simple to understand. You’re just saying, “I want power, but not from SDG&E. I want it from solar.
There is NO Catch When Switching to Solar
We put panels on your roof, and it doesn’t cost you anything. There are no ‘surprise’ back fees.
The final question is always, “Well, then what do I pay? What the ‘catch ’em all?”
You pay your monthly bill. That’s it!
You had to pay for it upfront in cash, maybe 10, or so years ago, but things are different now.
Just Get It Done
In just the past three years, things have changed. It’s very straightforward. You’re just switching your utility over. Even if you have a loan, it’s still looked at as switching your utility over, and you pay that loan off, and now you own your service. Either way, you’re saving money. Just get it done. I don’t know how else to put it. I’m not saying get it done with us. I’m just saying get it done.
Now, of course, we’d love to help you. Just let us know. If you haven’t yet, you can text us the word ‘BILL’ at (619) 304-0123, and we’ll go ahead and get you an estimate so you can start.
You’re going to save at least 20% on your bill for 25 years, if not more.
Utility Rates Hike Up Every Year
If you didn’t know, the rates are going to hike up on your utility bill. SDG&E’s rates on average, now, don’t quote me here, but I know they are over a 4% annual increase every year. The same with PG&E, by the way, because they’re trying to maintain a big power grid. Fires and mistakes happen. They’ve got to maintain that.
Mostly, all the costs have to take care of that. When you have solar on your roof, how many problems are happening, and how costly are they? Not that costly. Your increase, if there is even an increase on your loan or interest, it’s not near as much. You’re always going to be saving at least 20%. If you have a power bill that’s over $300 – $500, you’re going to save more than likely, 40% a month, so why wouldn’t you decide that switching to solar would be a good idea? That’s a lot of money.
We’re talking tens of thousands of dollars in a minimum of just a few years that you’re saving. Do you want to tell me about any investments you can put in the stock market that does that? Stop waiting.
Do Your Due Diligence When Switching to Solar
If you’re in a particular circumstance, please don’t take that too harshly. But in the end, what you’re most scared of is thinking something’s going to happen, and someone’s going to pull a fast one on you because there are these horror stories out there where somebody signed an agreement and later they’re paying these massive bills.
That’s because they didn’t do their due diligence. Do your due diligence. Work with a reputable team that cares about you and wants you to save some money and then get it done. There’s no way you can lose.
I hope that helps you to open your eyes. There’s no way to lose on this if you have a team to help you, and we’re happy to be here for you.
