Common Solar Objections
Objections are a part of any major decision or investment. We’ll address four common objections that solar customers have. This will help you feel more confident in your investment decision and ensure you are 100% satisfied with solar.
Objection #1 – Solar Is Too Expensive, I Can’t Afford It
Solar installations are now more affordable than ever, thanks to a variety of financing options that can be combined to cover upfront costs. Currently, the federal government provides a 30% tax credit for the cost of a solar system.
Objection #2 – I’m Concerned About Roof Damage
There’s always a possibility that something could go wrong when work is being done to your home. While it may be rare, many customers are concerned about potential roof damage and whether their warranties will cover it. However, you don’t have to worry about solar panels affecting your roof warranty. A solar system’s warranty will work in conjunction with your existing roof guarantee.
Objection #3 – I’m Planning to Move Soon
Solar actually offers a higher return on investment (ROI) than many people realize. If you plan on staying in your home for at least 5 to 7 years, going solar can be a great investment. The value of your solar system is determined by your utility rates, with higher rates leading to a quicker ROI.
Objection #4: I’d Rather Use the Money for Other Investments
Diversification is crucial when it comes to making smart investments. Investments don’t have to be mutually exclusive, and even successful investors may still be paying a significant amount to their utility company.
