SolarReviews delivers more leads than any other source for Renova Solar

Lakewood, CO. Dec. 8, 2014. SolarReviews, the leading consumer site for customer-based reviews on solar installations in the U.S., has now recognized more than 100 residential and commercial solar installers as Pre-Screened Solar Pros. The overwhelming majority of Installer Partners that have achieved the distinction have participated in the accreditation program for more than a year showing the value it holds both for consumers as well as installers.

The performance-based accreditation program uses customers’ actual reviews of their experience with their solar installers and the installation process. In addition SolarReviews makes sure the installer is in good standing and in compliance with all local licensing requirements.

“With so many different individuals and companies vying to install solar for consumers, having the 'Pre-Screened’ accreditation for the past two years lets consumers know Renova Solar has passed several background checks by an objective third party,” said Renova CEO and President Vincent Battaglia. It also demonstrates that we are committed to and consistent in providing the highest level of customer service.”

"Only a handful of solar Installer Partners have achieved the distinction of becoming a Pre-Screened Solar Pro," said SolarReviews President Jamie Lakes. "SolarReviews lists nearly 2,370 solar installers on its site. Of those only 1,117 have been reviewed by customers and of those less than 10 percent, only 103, have achieved the status of being a Pre-Screened Solar Pro."

To qualify for SolarReviews’ Pre-Screened Solar Pro accreditation installers must meet a number of criteria based on customer experience and satisfaction. Pre-Screened Solar Pros must carry a customer satisfaction rating of at least 4.50 out of 5.00 stars on a minimum of 10 customer-generated reviews. At least 3 of the reviews must occur within the past 12 months. In addition, the contractor must have been installing solar for a minimum of 3 years to qualify as a Pre-Screened Solar Pro.

SolarReviews also checks each solar installer interested in becoming a Pre-Screened Solar Pro to ensure it passes ContractorCheck’s criteria, which includes making sure the installer's accounts are current with creditors (no liens or disputes in past 5 years), it has not filed for bankruptcy in the past 7 years and it has submitted the appropriate licensing details.

By taking these extra steps SolarReviews helps ensure that potential solar customers can find an experienced, qualified local installer that will meet their needs and install the solar array that is a best fit for them.

“SolarReviews launched the Pre-Screened Solar Pro program in early 2013. Already we are finding that our Pre-Screened Solar Pro Installer Partners are organically receiving twice as much interest from customers than installers that have not achieved the accreditation,” Lakes said. “Our Installer Partners appreciate the accreditation because it helps drives genuine consumer inquiries to them. In addition, those that have earned Pre-Screened Solar Pro recognition can use the 'Pre-Screened' badge in their marketing and sales materials. They have found that doing so also increases their sales conversion percentages."

"SolarReviews delivers more leads than any other source for Renova Solar and as a master dealer for SunPower this is a paramount objective in our overall expansion plans,” Battaglia said.
