February 17, 2021

Businesses of all sizes and ages can agree that growth is key to success. Some CEOs and small businesses may spend a lot of time spinning their wheels trying to decide how to create growth and add revenue. There’s an overlooked solution that’s great for business, and the environment, selling solar.

Why Solar?

If you’ve never been interested in solar - for your home or your business - now is the time to get interested. Solar power is a clean and reliable renewable energy source. Homeowners can start receiving the benefits of solar almost immediately. Power bills decrease, and homeowners may be eligible for tax credits and rebates. The downsides to solar are few, and the benefits to your business are many. To start, here are the top 3 reasons to sell solar at your business.

1. You Need a New Line of Business that Generates Profits

If you find yourself worried about sales and revenue for your business, you aren’t alone. Despite changes to the economy, the solar industry continues to grow and change. According to SEIA (Solar Energy Industries Association), the solar industry generated $18.7 billion of investment in the American economy in 2019 alone. The growth continued in 2020, with residential installations increasing by 14% from Q2 to Q3. More states and cities also continue to embrace solar, which creates boundless opportunities for businesses that want to make a change. With these numbers, it’s more than worthwhile for any business to consider expanding into the solar industry.

2. You Probably Already Have the Leads

No matter how long your business has been in operation, you’ve probably made some connections along the way. These connections are valuable when you sell solar. Is your business in frequent contact with homeowners? You have leads. Your work probably helped individuals buy their homes, sell their homes, fix their roofs, or even correct plumbing problems. Reaching out to previous customers to let them know that you have more offerings can only benefit you. Want to spread the news far and wide? You can still generate leads with regular marketing methods while you get your existing leads up to speed.
