Go Smart Solar exists to drive rapid adoption of Solar. Only two things are holding the conversion to clean energy back: Knowledge and Price. Most of you have never purchased solar before, so you don’t know what to ask and what to expect. This leaves you vulnerable to overpaying – simply because you don’t know any better. Sadly, some companies prey on your lack of knowledge to raise prices.
We strive to be very different. We believe that if we help educate our buyers *and* offer a really good price from the start, then they’re more likely to buy (and tell their friends about us). That’s our goal and our pledge to you. If we’re not living up to it, please let us know here
