Palmetto expands solar sales opportunities to pros in complimentary industries


Palmetto introduced a new Palmetto Sales Plus Program to extend solar sales process efficiencies to companies in complementary industries – such as roofing, windows, siding, HVAC and electrical contractors. Palmetto wants to help them to establish and grow an additional revenue stream by selling solar to their existing customer base.  

Palmetto’s marketplace model and proprietary technology, Alchemy, makes it easy for partners to track leads, generate instant customer proposals and financing, and effectively execute agreements.  Alchemy also provides in-app support for sales members and visibility into project tracking through completion. The software is designed to help the sales partner sell solar more easily and to provide a better customer experience, all while reducing installation costs and time.   

“Palmetto is excited to partner with complimentary service providers to help them easily add a solar business vertical to their existing company, and at the same time, help maximize customers’ solar energy experience,” stated Chris Kemper, Palmetto Chairman, Founder and Chief Executive Officer.  “Now, these service providers can leverage their home services network and acumen, coupled with our end-to-end technology, to offer an easy path to solar for their customers.”

The Palmetto Sales Plus program is designed to enable business owners to easily and quickly offer residential solar to their customers. It’s an end-to-end solution that offers support, training and marketing materials, and hands on guidance for how to operate the business – from how to price your deals to managing proper cash flow. 

In addition to its solar calculator, Palmetto offers a team of local solar experts to design and install a solar panel system that matches their needs. Palmetto Protect ensures these customers receive comprehensive, long-term monitoring and robust customer support. 

Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.

We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
