Solar Dashboard is the Quickest and Most Effective Way to Estimate Your Savings from Installing Solar.
The complex nature of evaluating the cost and savings from installing a rooftop solar system is one of the biggest obstacle to the widespread acceptance of residential solar. A simple, effective, accessible and hassle-free solution to this problem can go a long way to help customers embrace such wonderful 21st century technology. PMax Solar Inc. has just released a trail-blazing Solar Dashboard solution. The online tool allows you to evaluate your savings in less than a minute with the only knowledge of your address and average electric bill while allowing you to quickly customize financial preference or select panel technology.
Ever changing local, state and federal regulations on solar electricity coupled with the varying nature of available sunshine which depends on location, orientation, time of year etc. makes estimating your solar savings a complex, confusing and time consuming endeavor. To make matters worse, most (if not all) installers have a bias towards a certain financing scheme or panel technology which makes their advice potentially lacking transparency or honesty. The fierce competition to acquire new customers means they often use high pressure tactics to increase their sales volume, tactics that are seldom in the interest of the consumer.
With PMax Solar Dashboard, you will find a simple, automated, customizable, unbiased, fast, hassle-free and convenient one page online tool that you can use to estimate your cost and savings from the comfort of your home. All you need to do is to input your address and average monthly electric bill.
The Dashboard then lets you decide how much electric bill you would like to pay after going solar. That amount can vary from $0 monthly electric bill to up to 100% of what you currently pay. Once you have decided how much your future solar bill will be with solar, next you can decide how you would want to finance your new solar system. The two options are self-pay with upfront cash or solar bank loans. You have full control on adjusting your total system cost (which can be convenient to double check any existing quote from an installer), down payment, interest rate and loan term. Playing with these parameters lets you see how they affect your solar savings and empowers you when negotiating specifics with your solar installer. Your yearly solar savings are calculated based on the parameters you just selected and total solar radiation available in your area and is displayed in big bold numbers for easy reference. In addition, the progression of your cumulative solar savings, over 25 years, from the two financial options, self-pay and bank loan, are displayed in a central graph. Also, a table summarizes your upfront cost, monthly payment after going solar, average yearly savings and your federal tax credit that you will get from uncle Sam after filing your taxes (note: this tax credit is rumored to potentially be eliminated under the new administration so hurry while you still can). In the system requirement section, you get to see what is your optimum system size and the required area for installing it. As a bonus, you can even select and see how a given panel technology affects your savings. This knowledge will make you look like a solar guru, so use it with moderation.
All this information is provided hassle-free without asking you to give any identifiable information such as name, email and phone numbers. If you are interested in getting all this information in a free report via email you have that option too. Just input your name and email. You will even get a chance to activate your account with pmaxsolar.com and use other awesome tools that allows you to check if indeed you have the required rooftop area for free. If you don’t, the tool will still calculate what would your optimized solar system be, given the limited area you have and see associated cost and savings. Seriously, what more would you want? Yes, connecting you to the right installers near you, right? PMax Solar offers that as well, again for free. A maximum of three installers may contact you by email and it will be up to you to decide if you would like to go solar. That part you will have to decide on your own, now that you are empowered with detailed information you obtained from this free Solar Dashboard that helps you in your quest to do your part in bettering the environment while saving money. Try it now! You will be glad you did.
The residential rooftop solar industry is entering an exciting new era.
Various reports are projecting that the residential rooftop solar industry will undergo phenomenal growth in 2016 and beyond.
Attempting to cash in on the resulting bonanza, many “solar lead generation companies” have set up shop online with the sole purpose of luring potential customers to their site and capture their contact information. This information is then sold to various solar system installation companies that pay them a premium.
The sales departments of the latter will then bombard those phone numbers, emails and mailing addresses with the sole goal of enticing prospective solar customers into giving in to their sale proposals. To be honest, some of the lead generation and solar installation companies might be more forthcoming than others when explaining the often too complex and confusing process of going solar.
Nonetheless, most solar customers give in to the high-pressure sales tactics of solar companies by signing binding long-term contracts without much grasp of the legal and financial ramifications.
There is no doubt that solar electric technology helps residential solar customers realize tremendous financial opportunities and environmental benefits today. However, the validity and magnitude of those benefits highly depend on several factors.
Reading the fine print
One needs to carefully consider all these factors before deciding whether or not to go solar.
How to finance, what system size to use, what panel technology and which installers to select, which sections of the roof to use etc. all vary depending on the customer.
The appropriate solar solution needs to be customized in each case. Geographic location will also determine how much sunlight one will get and will directly impact the choice of panel technology. Similarly, local, state and federal regulations will determine the best financing options for a particular customer.
To be clear, almost all solar installers will assure customers that due diligence is indeed practiced. There is only one problem: most installers have an obvious conflict of interest when advising on particular technologies to use or recommending a given financing scheme. Some will push their own branded panels because they are vertically integrated to do exactly just that while others will lean towards glorifying PPA (Power Purchase Agreements) or leasing options to customers because that is exactly how they can maximize their profits and stay in business.
These are some of the problems this young and dynamic industry is experiencing. The business models of most solar companies directly conflict with the interest of solar customers. This indeed acts as a drag on an industry that is poised to experience an explosive growth rarely seen in the past.
The companies that will solve these conflicts of interest and serve as true and honest guides to solar customers by empowering them through education and transparency will be the winners and enablers of such growth and will stand to reap substantial benefits.
