Advice on Picking a Renewable Energy Pro

Whichever type of renewable energy you’re looking to install, it’s vital that you get the ideal pro to undertake your project. Do plenty of research before starting the project and the process of finding the perfect tradespeople will get a lot easier.

Choosing a pro

To help, we’ve come up with a list of easy things that’ll make your search for the perfect renewable energy pro much easier.

Get a number of quotes

One of the easiest things you can do when looking for a tradesperson is to get several quotes. If you get a number of quotes, you’ll be able to identify what a fair price for the work is. If you only get one or two quotes, it’s difficult to know what a fair price for the job is. With several quotes, you can pick out any particularly high or low prices and ask for clarification on the differences.

Make sure you get quotes in person

You should always get quotes in person. You’ll get more accurate quotes if the pros come to your property to accurately inspect the job. This will also mean that they properly follow the specifications you need.

Never use cold callers

Avoid cold callers as these companies may not be who they say they are. Also, it’s difficult to be confident that they’ll carry out high-quality work. They may also use pressure selling tactics to encourage you to pick them to do the work before you’ve properly finished your research.

Check company details

To avoid ending up with a tradesperson who you’re not confident about, always make sure that the pros show you proof of their company name, address and insurance coverage. By doing this, you can be sure that they’ve got the right insurance to protect themselves and your property.

Read customer reviews

Always check through the online reviews of a pro that you’re thinking about using. If you’ve found the company through our service, you can find ratings and reviews on their Quotatis profile page. If the pro hasn’t got any reviews online, ask for references or photos of previous work so you can make sure that they’re carrying out high-quality work.

Picking a renewable energy pro

Make sure they’re MCS certified

If you’re having renewable energy installed, it’s essential to use a pro that’s registered with the Microgeneration Certification Scheme. If you don’t use an MCS-registered installer for your renewable energy project, you won’t be able to benefit from the government’s Feed-in Tariff.
