Sense‘s solar partner program is expanding further with the addition of nearly 150 new solar partners across the U.S. in the past year. They join industry leading providers such as Solgen Power, SUNation, and nearly 500 other solar providers who’ve chosen Sense. While continuous growth of the solar industry is expected, there are new challenges facing installers as consumers demand simpler ways to manage increasingly complex solar and home energy installations.
“Our partners recognize the importance of offering whole home energy savings to their customers. We’ve found that when customers have greater visibility, they save more, are more satisfied, and thus are more likely to refer their friends and family to their solar provider. Sense delivers a uniquely engaging experience that delights customers and earns their trust and loyalty for years to come.” said Gabe Abbott, Sense’s vice president of strategic partnerships.
Once installed, Sense Solar provides energy awareness throughout the solar sales cycle, making customers aware of their energy usage in real time, helping solar installers determine accurate sizing for their installations, set expectations with customers, and reduce cancellations while permitting takes place. After the solar installation, Sense Solar adds value immediately by creating energy awareness, deepening the customer relationship, generating loyalty and increasing referrals.
“Sense has proven to be invaluable to so many of our solar customers,” said Tyler Uebelhoer, founder and CEO of Buffalo Solar Inc. serving Western New York. “Our customers love the real-time information this tool provides and how it empowers them to make energy use decisions in the moment, right in the palm of their hand.”
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.
