Vocabulary.coms Definition of an Advocate
As a noun, an advocate is a person who represents another person’s interests, like a lawyer does. In fact, the word comes from the courtroom — it’s from Latin advocare, to “add” a “voice.” To advocate is to add a voice of support to a cause or person. An advocate is anyone who adds that voice by representing another person in court, or by supporting or working toward a particular course of action. Vocabulary.com
The data is in for the first 3 plus years of home solar in Florida. The data shows that about 5% of all homeowners that sat for a home solar proposal actually purchased it. That tells us 95% of homeowners interested did not buy.
What was the reason so many homeowners wanted to go solar but ultimately didn’t buy? 95 out of the 100 believed solar was cheaper than the power company. A common-sense belief because the sun is free right? But what was the actual experience when being proposed home solar?
The Typical Home Solar Buyers Experience Is Not A Very Good One
The experience of buying home solar is brutal and the only thing I can compare it to is buying a car. They would sit for anywhere from one and a half hours up to three hours and be explained all the details. During this process, the representative will not give you a price? You have to do an application first and provide all of your personal information. SS numbers, driver’s license copy, tax forms to verify qualifying for tax credit and proof of ownership of the home. Then a hard credit check takes place to qualify for financing for a 20-year term.
Then the proposal finally comes through from the main office and gets presented to the customer. It’s amazing how many people would subject themselves to all of this just to get a price.
The potential buyer is excited and bright-eyed because there is a sense of doing good with home solar. The majority of us want to be less of a burden when it comes to pollution because we care. The company selling home solar doesn’t care about Ideology, they are there to sell home solar, period.
The Cost Has Yet To Exceed The Value
Then they hear a proposal for a 7K system as an example and it’s $28,000 and the temperature in the room instantly gets turned up. This system will produce about $150 a month in power and in most cases cut taxes off the power bill. In a good case, you will cut about $165 a month or less off a power bill.
They are surprised by the high cost, to say the least, and make comments like “It’s like buying a house”. Then the sales rep explains why the cost is so high. It’s construction and which requires a great deal of detail but don’t worry because the power bill money will be your payment. So see, it’s really free because you are going to pay your power bill anyway. We all hate the power company so why give it to them when you can pay-off a home solar system.
This is true but what about the $28,000? Well unfortunately the proposal shows another $28,000 in interest for a 20 year loan at 5%. Once again who cares you are spending that on your power bill and that’s not including power company price hikes.
Power company costs have not really gone up much over the past 10 to 15 years because their prices are driven by the oil markets. A potential buyer does not realize that and they like their sales rep so they trust them.
The Customer Wants Financial Gain From Home Solar
The total cost of the example solar system with interest is $56,000, the total twenty years of a power bill at $165 a month is $39,600. The solar company has overhead that has far too many hands in the pot and it drives up the price. All the additional costs get passed on to the homeowner and they lose money.
It gets even gets uglier because the power company doesn’t have any term length like financing. Yet about 5% still bought, and I believe the majority bought because they believe in doing the right thing.
Make A Profit From Home Solar With “Your Solar Advocate” Consulting Firm
Sample Cost Breakdown
So for argument’s sake, a 7K system costs $12,000 for all the equipment from a to z. Your Installation costs are $3,500. That totals out to $15,500 for a system no company in Florida can sell for under $25,500 and stay in business. I sold this size system for $28,000 when I worked for a solar company.
“Your Solar Advocate” charges one fee for everything. The savings are $10,000 for a 7K System which makes our expert fees a bargain. We can’t provide pricing without knowing how much your average kWh usage is. please feel free to call or fill in the form below. Provide your average monthly kWh is and we will give you an estimated wholesale cost of that system.
The disparity of solar prices is caused by two things, solar companies overhead and financing. If you use “Your Solar Advocate” for the previous example and pay cash your total cost is $15,500 (less your tax credit) but the customer who used a company and financed paid $56,000 by the end of their 20-year term. Because they get a larger tax credit, they might not even qualify for all of it. It’s such a large amount of money and if they don’t pay that much in taxes they only qualify for some of it.
These facts do not mean don’t finance, your just better off being more creative about financing. Don’t finance the solar system because most banks don’t do solar loans, that’s why solar finance companies exist. Be creative with home improvement loans or refinance and put on a new roof while you’re at it. A roof and solar are actually paid for because you’re not paying the power company the same money.
The bottom line is pay cash and make a lot of money from going solar because you are cutting out all the unneeded expenses.
