We meet lots of people that have either had solar installed or are about to have it installed that have price quotes from some "less than honest" companies. What exactly do I mean?Ted "The Wolf" Strzelecki
What I mean is the companies out there that are using obsolete equipment. You know who you are out there. The companies that are in commercial solar and decide to one day take a stab at the residential market. Sure when you are installing 3,400 panels it may make...read more
Some of the larger players in solar will often have their sales teams tell homeowners "We are the largest" or "You don't do as many installs as us and not become the best". This sounds good to the untrained and uneducated ear. Uneducated to the power of marketing and branding.Ted "The Wolf" Strzelecki

I have never been a "tree hugger" or one that ever thought about the environment. Funny how kids can do that to you though. You have to ask yourself is the old way of drilling the earth for oil & NatGas cumbersome, environmentally taxing, and limited?...read more
