Free Solar Panels – No Catch? – Review Part 1

Hi folks, I am going to review this Company and their service on my blog. We are doing this ourselves and this is not a sponsored post.

Solar City LogoWe just had a nice young man who represents Solar City come to our door. It was a really pleasant visit with him as we asked a lot of questions and yes, we asked the hard questions too. So far so good, we signed up and have an appointment for June 2nd where they will come out and survey our roof top and see if they think it’s worth installing the solar panels and (of course) free solar panels onto our home. We love the idea of helping the Environment and saving ourselves some money on our Electric Bill.

The “catch” not really a catch when you look at it, they pay for the installation and panels, we get a reduced price on our Electric Bills. Why did we choose to go with them? We couldn’t afford our own Solar Panels, yet they install them, maintain them and cover all those prices. They will however make the money from the Electric Company for the extra supply of Electricity the Solar Panels produce, and yet we will see a savings as well.

So far this looks pretty cool to me, even if it’s only a few dollars a month, even a little bit of savings will help us out! Besides, we’ve heard that having Solar Panels on the house will bring up the value of our home too!

I will further my review as time goes on here, the next step is the Survey of our Rooftop on June 2nd and we will go from there. For right now, they did have to check out our Credit Score for acceptance and we were accepted, we have 30 days to back out, if we so choose. We were a little nervous about supplying the Social Security Number to them and signing a electronic contract, but we asked a lot of questions and I looked up reviews on the company online and thought it was worth the risk, besides we have Life Lock and that will help us monitor the usage of our information. Now if we didn’t have lifelock on our SS numbers we could have just had them look us up for a credit score by name and address… but we have our safety in place to be aware of anything going on that is off.

What do you think of the Company friends? Would you go for this too, if so why and if not why not? Please let me know.
