Florida Solar Installation -How To Avoid $20,000 Mistake
Greetings friends, it’s joe with joedoessolar.com. This video is dedicated to all of my friends here in central Florida that are still stuck on the solar sidelines. Look, I get why.
You’re smart enough to know what you don’t know. So you research ads for solar calculators spec sheets and consumer reviews.
You feel like you might know enough to express an interest in going solar so you submit your data to a solar lead generating company. (They literally sell your name, phone number, and address to numerous companies for hundreds of dollars) and your phone📱 blows up immediately and incessantly.
So you find the courage to feel out a few calls and when the telemarketers can’t answer some of your easy questions they persuade you to book an appointment with one of their sales reps. In the meantime, a few other guys knock on your door.
You make a pact with your significant other that you will absolutely not sign with anyone until after you’ve talked to at least three different companies.
Fast forward to three appointments for at least an hour each, watching infomercials on some guy’s ipad. Then the high-pressure sales tactics.
Although there are many similarities between the information conveyed in these three appointments there’s a wide disparity in system size layout and God knows what else they told you so you being logical revert back to the very place all of this started the realization that you still don’t know enough to get off the solar sidelines.
How Solar Companies Take Advantage of You
Yeah you’re likely thinking, wow joe get out of my head. I’m not in your head but I’ve seen this show a few times
So here’s some truth… many solar companies take advantage of what you don’t know
Sorry, truth over harmony.
WTFV in Orlando recently did an expose. They have a solar company that misled or lied to their customers about the solar tax credit, costing each customer an extra $20,000
I received a solar sales call just yesterday and instead of just hanging up, I listened and asked questions I asked, so there are no minimum income requirements for the tax credit?
No, this is an income tax credit IRS form 5695, the solar tax credit depends on the size or the cost of your solar investment
What About The Solar Tax credit?
Okay, this is true in regards to the solar tax credit I suppose. The bigger the cost the bigger the credit currently at 26 percent. But for someone with little or no income like someone on social security they will never be able to use the credit.
The IRS won’t credit something that hasn’t been debited. So if a $40,000 investment is worth a little easy research and you’re not opposed to asking for help, you’ll be
