We started Solbridge to change the paradigm of going solar. We make this process easy by streamlining the exploration and bidding processes, providing our clients with thoughtful guidance from start to finish.
Instead of representing one company, we represent everything the solar marketplace has to offer. This independent approach allows us to focus on your goals and objectives, putting your priorities first.
With over 15 years of experience in the solar industry, our founders have developed an extensive network of contractors, developers, and financiers representing every facet of the broad solar marketplace. We utilize this network to bring our clients the best solutions to meet their individual needs.
When investing in something like solar, it makes sense to know your options. Our process brings custom solar bids to you, without sales pressure or multiple site visits from various installation companies. With Solbridge, you get an apples-to-apples comparison of your options, through one simple process.
The solar industry has experienced tremendous growth over the past decade, and continues to be a highly dynamic sector of our global energy economy. Witnessing this growth in our local marketplace, we saw a clear opportunity to bring greater efficiency and objectivity to the process of exploring and implementing solar.
As a solar broker, Solbridge aims to bring value to both sides of the marketplace. Here’s how:
Solar installers constantly receive calls from people looking to explore the solar potential for their home, business, vacant land, or real estate development. Pursuing these leads includes conducting sales calls and visits, site analysis and system design, generating, sharing, and explaining estimates, etc. The cost of this upfront work leads to an important figure- cost of customer acquisition.
Customer acquisition represents the single biggest “soft cost” (any cost other than physical equipment and labor) for the majority of residential and commercial solar installations. What’s more- multiple installers will conduct the same preliminary work for the same project, inevitably investing unnecessary time and money into projects that they will not complete. Not only are these costs factored into the bids you may receive, but enduring the same process with multiple solar installation companies takes significant time and effort that we believe can be better spent.
Solbridge changes this paradigm with an independent consultative and brokerage process that puts your priorities first. With the help of Solbridge, you will clearly understand what’s possible, and be able to confidently decide if solar is right for you. If you decide that it is, we develop a set of clear project specifications that are included in a custom RFP (request for proposals), and distributed to our network of installation companies. We then help you evaluate the various bids for your project and select the contractor that best represents what you’re looking for.
Our process not only saves you time and confusion, but also gives installation companies everything they need to generate a highly competitive project bid at a much lower cost. At the end of the day, we believe there is no good reason not to engage Solbridge as your independent solar consultant and broker.
