Here are some essential questions you should ask your solar panel installer before your system is put in:

  • Can you provide references from previous customers with similar systems?
  • How many similar systems have you installed?
  • When would you be able to perform the work?
  • How long will the project take?
  • What warranties are provided (including workmanship warranty and specific equipment warranties)?
  • Have you worked with local building officials and utility representatives when installing similar systems in the past?
  • Do you have a Massachusetts-licensed electrician as part of the project team?
  • Will you hire subcontractors to complete portions of the project? What firms will you hire and what work will they do?
  • What kind of training will you provide me with so that I can operate and maintain my system?
  • Do you offer any financing, or third-party ownership options?
  • Do you have any financial arrangements with any of the financing option providers you work with and do these include extra charges or fees?
  • Will you or a partner company be able to assist me in selling the solar energy credits generated by my system?
