The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) is launching its SEIA Residential Consumer Guide to Solar Power.
Available online, the free guide offers those interested in solar power information about the basics of solar energy and ownership options. The guide is a result of a joint effort of the leading companies across the solar sector and complements SEIA's existing Code of Ethics.
The SEIA Residential Consumer Guide to Solar Power will be periodically updated and complemented with additional tools as the U.S. market grows and matures, so consumers can stay informed with the latest information.
One of the components of the consumer guide is a section entitled ‘Working out Differences,’ which is devoted to potential problem resolution. The guide includes key questions to ask solar installers before entering a transaction.
‘The solar industry is committed to consumer protection and transparency,’ says Nick Mack, general counsel at Clean Power Finance. ‘Solar companies rely on referrals and consistent payments for financed solar systems, so it is in our own best interest to protect consumers and provide them with a positive experience.’
