Shaping the future of the solar industry

The solar industry has evolved tremendously over the past few years. Here are a few examples:

  • The industry has gradually shifted from third-party ownership (lease and PPA) to straight ownership
  • The industry shifted from national companies to regional levels
  • Cost-of-customer acquisition has increased over the past few years
  • Almost every homeowner shops around for better service and more competitive pricing before buying a solar power system.

All of this means your business process needs to be adjusted accordingly to stay competitive. Our platform’s easy process was purpose-built by experienced energy professionals, engineers and sales reps to simplify a complicated process for homeowners, Energy Advisors, lenders and Installers.

Many homeowners are interested in installing a solar system to lower their cost of electricity while saving the planet, but they’re usually not able to find the right solution for their unique needs and wants. On the other hand, there are many outstanding lenders, advisors and contractors that can address those needs.

This is where Energy Advisor Hub comes in to help by offering a revolutionary technology to connect homeowners, advisors, lenders and installers based on their needs, goals, specifications and specialties relatively.
