“There is a real disconnect between solar technology and consumer awareness”, says co-founder David Smith, who was a former solar sales rep himself. “I remember getting into these adversarial conversations between husband & wife who were just terribly misinformed”, laughs Smith. “Solarbuddy was designed to educate consumers on ALL aspects of solar – from equipment to financing to savings. It’s all here in one easy to use format.”
SolarBuddy allows consumers to estimate the cost savings of a solar array for their home or business. With an address, electricity bill and a few mouse clicks customers can get an instantaneous layout and quote customized for their needs.
“Now people don’t have to sit through a 2 hour sales pitch in order to get preliminary information about solar technology,” says Smith. “They can do the research themselves and let solar companies compete for their business when the time is right. It works out better for everyone.”
Besides providing online quotes, SolarBuddy also gives the latest news and trends in technology, policy, rebates and financing. Users are afforded the luxury of becoming educated consumers to make informed buying decisions.
SolarBuddy is the collaborative effort of co-founders David Smith and Vik Mehta designed to educate consumers on the real value of clean renewable energy. SolarBuddy puts consumers in the driver’s seat when evaluating solar. By providing access to information, customers can take the time to evaluate their options before being contacted by solar reps. Solar reps also enjoy having progressive dialogue with educated consumers.
