With Residential Solar Financing, You Can Avoid Scammers
It’s great news that thousands of families are converting to solar power in New York. It’s not so great that groups like the Better Business Bureau are reporting increasing numbers of solar scams throughout America. While the solar industry isn’t unique in attracting some bad actors, it’s still upsetting to see families left out of pocket. Here’s what you need to know about solar scams and how to avoid them with New York Power Solutions and residential solar financing.
Don’t Get Scammed on New York Solar Installation
The scams going around today are simple, but they can be incredibly costly for homeowners.
The typical scenario goes like this…
A “salesperson” calls you or even knocks on your door. They offer free or low-cost solar panels far below the market average. They collect your banking information and personal details for “approval.” They then leave you, never to return or call again, and they use your information to commit identity theft and financial crimes. Some scammers could ask for money upfront, leaving you out of pocket from the first interaction.
Let’s be very clear. New York solar installation isn’t free. Rates with the best companies are competitive and fair, and you will eventually generate a return on investment. But the installation and panels still come with a cost.
If you are approached by a person or company offering a free or unbelievably cheap New York solar installation, don’t sign anything or provide any personal information upfront. Ask for credentials like a company ID, company contact number, and address. In almost every case, a free offer of solar panels is misleading and an outright scam.
