Franklin Electric Plant Board, Your Trusted Resource for Solar
Franklin EPB is eager to support any customer in their efforts to interconnect renewable generation to the grid. Solar can be a valuable investment for homeowners and businesses, but it’s important to understand all of the costs and requirements before you choose any particular system or installer.
Unfortunately, we are aware of a few untrustworthy solar contractors in the area contacting Franklin EPB customers using high-pressure sales tactics and presenting misleading information about the benefits of solar and the potential savings. Please do not fall victim to these misleading claims. Contact the team at Franklin EPB, your trusted resource for solar. We can support you on the research and due diligence before you sign a contract. We have a Solar Checklist that will help guide you through the process of evaluating solar, selecting a contractor, and installation.
We also strongly suggest you consider the following items when considering making an investment in a solar installation:
Beware of any high-pressure sales pitches asking you to sign a contract before you understand the terms.
Solar Power can be an exciting investment with opportunities to save money on your electric bill and help the environment. It is a long-term investment that should be properly evaluated to understand if it is right for you.
Beware of any sales pitch that presents with short or unreasonable deadlines.
Good decisions take time. Reputable solar companies understand that you need time to evaluate and understand the total impact of making the decision to purchase and install solar. Bad apples impose artificial deadlines to pressure you into a quick decision, often before you have the opportunity to research the terms.
Beware of any company that tells you they partner with Franklin EPB.
Franklin EPB is excited to work with the solar installer of your choice, but we do not currently partner with or recommend any particular installer.
