What does the Gold Standard do for you?

Each step in our comprehensive consultation and project management strategy is designed to provide you more value, and reduce your personal costs compared to an individually managed project.

  • 1.   Client Evaluation

Save time, better education:  Do the evaluation once instead of multiple times with each installer, and start getting answers for your questions and concerns at the beginning from someone who knows the whole industry.

In order for your service to be truly personalized, your Solar Energy Consultant needs to get to know you.   The evaluation process ensures that you are comfortable with the technology and that we are able to set realistic expectations for your project before the next step.
  • 2.   Define Your Investment Goals

Save time, reduce stress, and save money:  Setting a plan will help you worry less about the little things, and setting your budget will help you resist the upsell unless it’s really worth it.

We see solar as a profitable investment in clean energy, and so we think that buying solar should be like any other investment.   You tell us how much you are willing to invest and what your project priorities are so that your SEC can make your vision a reality.
  • 3.   Compare Financing Options

More value, save time, and reduce stress:  By this stage you and your Solar Energy Consultant (SEC) should have discussed your strategy for purchasing the system at length.   But before we start soliciting contractors, we’ll want to put the final touches on your plan.

We’ll use financial metrics such as ROI, IRR, and Payback Period to see how different payment strategies might affect your received value, and consulting an expert will help reduce the time it takes and make the decision easier for you.
  • 4.   Collect Project Bids

Save time, reduce stress, and save money:  You don’t want to collect the quotes yourself, but having options will ensure you find the best products and price for your application.

There are over 100 different solar contractors operating in the Sunshine State and each one is a little different.   We’ll sort out the best options, reach out and get quotes for you, then put them side by side in a custom report to help make your decision simple.
  • 5.   Compare Contractor Bids

Better service, save money, save time, and reduce stress:  Multiple quotes will help you find the best price, products, and added services, and an easy to understand presentation will save you time and make the process less stressful.

This is the most important step and can take a long time if you’re on your own.   Fortunately your SEC will be there to standardize each proposal, create a custom report for you to review all your options, and then stick with you until you can decide.
  • 6.   Final Project Review

Better education, and reduced stress:  Understand your project front to back and review each decision that was made along the way.

Measure twice, sign once.   Your SEC will review your project with you in its entirety to make sure you’re totally satisfied before pulling the trigger.
  • 7.   Sign & Manage Your Installation

Put your name on the dotted line, sit back, and relax.

Once you’ve selected a proposal you like and arranged your payment plan, we’ll make the introduction to your chosen solar pro. Your SEC will continue to be there for you each step of the way, seeing your project through to completion.
