"As the most active solar review site in the US with more than 3 million unique visitors annually, realizes the importance of reviews both in helping consumers make a choice and to installers in generating sales and leads, as well increasing their returns on investment."

These unvarnished reviews from actual customers are a potent tool in helping potential customers choose a high-quality solar installer for their home or business.

We appreciate the fact that they ensure a quality platform that inspects that all of the reviews are from real customers for ourselves and our competitors, no matter what size the company is.

"As reviews, and particularly positive reviews increase for companies it shows that they are more trusted and deemed less of a risk by consumers, increasing sales for the company," Lakes explained. "Well beyond our customer-generated reviews, we also offer our Pre-Screened Solar Pros accreditation program. These highly-ranked solar installers go through a more thorough vetting process to ensure they are quality installers and we're quite pleased that nearly 90 percent of our top 100-reviewed installers are also Pre-Screened Solar Pros ."
