Solar Preset Appointments 101

Do you want double-verified homeowners who would like a quote for installing solar panels on their home?

If so, it is vital to properly evaluate companies that sell solar leads to verify you are choosing the best fit. With our leads, we know if their roof is suitable for solar and if they have received estimates from pre-screened solar firms. We ensure the decision maker is present for an appointment, they have an average utility bill of $150 and up monthly and little to zero shade on the roof. We ask if the credit score is above 680 and we confirm a date and time for your sales rep to mee them at the home.

Other facts about solar that may come in handy include:

Solar co-ops and Solarize programs can help consumers to go solar. These campaigns allow groups of households to negotiate rates, choose an installer, and increase community interest in solar through a limited-time offer to participate. As residents join the program, installation costs typically rise.

The national average for labor per watt is roughly 50 cents; however, it varies by state.
State-by-state solar panel installation costs vary. According to the Department of Energy, new solar energy projects are lowering solar panel installation costs nationwide. Solar power costs have fallen 80% in the past decade.

Texas, California, Florida, Virginia, and Georgia are the top five states for solar installations, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association. Many states have also increased their reliance on solar energy.

As prices decline, solar panel installation incentives and tax advantages will expire.

Solar panels cost more than comparable home renovations. They can increase a home’s value and offset electricity costs. Solar panels pay for themselves gradually in the first year. Homeowners should expect a five-to-15-year payback period.
Knowing a solar power system’s cost and energy output can predict annual energy savings.

Residential power is usually fixed-rate. Electricity billing complicates this computation. Instead of countering peak electricity output, homeowners’ solar power systems offset their electricity costs, which are closer to power generation’s average cost.

However, many U.S. utility providers have devised pricing models that charge homes at changing rates during the day to represent the actual cost of energy production: Afternoon rates exceed night rates. PV solar arrays can balance time-varying rates.

Summer prices boost solar power. Rate and time determine this. Some utilities charge seasonally due to demand fluctuations.

Some utilities’ tiered pricing plans change electricity’s marginal price as demand rises. Solar arrays that balance high-cost marginal consumption may benefit large homes with high energy needs.

Some homeowners can sell solar power to the grid. “Net metering” plans in the U.S. allow residential consumers to use the ability they put into the grid to offset power consumed at other times. The monthly electric bill reflects net energy consumption. Regional net metering laws vary.

So before you go after those solar leads, keep all of the above in mind. What are you selling homeowners? And how do you go about it? These are important considerations.
