When looking to set your contracting business apart from the competition, you need to look at all the aspects of your business. Do you offer contractor financing to your customers? If not, it’s time to set yourself up for success. Here’s how to offer solar financing.
As you may know, there are some pretty impressive reasons to install solar panels in residential settings. Benefits of solar power include a decreased reliance on fossil fuels, increased home value, decreased power bill, and more. Your clients may decide that solar energy is right for them and that they want their contractor in charge of the install. What you may not know is that it’s super simple to offer solar financing to your clients.
