The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) recently signed an online content sharing partnership with SolarReviews.com to increase the quality and transparency of information made available to American consumers who are considering installing solar panels.
The SolarReviews.com family of sites are the leading group of consumer-facing solar power information sites in the U.S. receiving more than 3 million unique visitors on an annual basis.
The sites include:
SolarReviews.com – which offers customer reviews of solar installers and brands of solar equipment.
Solar-Estimate.org – which includes a solar estimator, co-designed with Department of Energy
SolarPanelTalk.com – the largest and most active solar forum in the US with expert moderators who provide technical advice on solar panels, solar installation and answer questions posed by consumers, installers and others.
Each of these sites plays its part in ensuring that consumers are properly protected when investigating an investment in solar. Between these sites consumers can see all the information they need to make the best choice they can about going solar.
They cater for the most basic information needs of any consumer considering a purchase:
How much do solar panels cost?
What is the best solar panel to use?
Which is the best solar installer in my area?
“This new marketing agreement with SEIA solidifies SolarReviews.com’s reputation as well as that of its sister sites as a trusted leader in the provision of accurate, unbiased consumer information in the US solar industry” said SolarReviews.com President Jamie Lakes.
“SEIA’s use of the Solar-Estimate.org tool throughout their site makes it easier for consumers across the country to get accurate and up-to-date estimates on the cost and benefits of a solar array and helps connect them to leading solar installers in their region.”
“Solar reviews offers comprehensive information about the solar customer experience,” said Dan Whitten, SEIA’s Vice President of Communications. “The Solar Estimator tool is an invaluable resource for folks who visit our web site, and the company’s reviews offer transparency into the solar purchasing process, which is consistent with our extensive consumer protection effort, which itself is meant to shed more light on the solar purchasing experience.”
SolarReviews.com is the leading customer reviews website in the solar industry, with more than 2,500 listed solar installers and 17,000+ customer-generated reviews of solar installers and manufacturers.
