Beyond Door-to-Door Sales: National Solar's Ethical Approach to Solar Energy in Oregon
February 2, 2024
In an industry rife with rapid expansions and contractions, the story of the rooftop solar market has been a roller coaster of innovation, challenges, and lessons learned. Recent reports, such as a detailed analysis by Time, have highlighted the volatile nature of the solar industry, underscoring the pitfalls of complex financing and aggressive sales tactics, including door-to-door sales, which have led to consumer skepticism and industry setbacks.
National Solar stands apart in this landscape. Unlike many of its larger competitors, we've committed to a straightforward approach that prioritizes quality installations and conventional financing tools to make solar energy accessible and understandable to homeowners. We believe in making solar simple and reliable, ensuring that our customers feel confident and informed every step of the way.
The Time article points out, "The rapid scaling of rooftop solar has exposed cracks in the foundation of the industry." These words resonate with many who've witnessed the repercussions of prioritizing speed over substance. National Solar has observed these trends and chosen a different path. We've seen companies employ complex financing models that obscure costs and obligations, causing confusion and hesitancy among potential solar adopters. Our approach is transparent and customer-focused, utilizing conventional financing that demystifies the process of going solar.
Moreover, the aggressive marketing tactics mentioned in the narrative, including door-to-door sales, have often led to consumer discomfort and distrust. National Solar has consciously decided against these practices. "We do not knock on doors. We build relationships," is a principle that guides our operations. Our reputation as one of the top solar companies in Oregon is built on trust, quality, and the satisfaction of over 3,000 homeowners across the state.
