We believe that making solar power simple and accessible to anyone who wants it is the single most important philosophy behind what we do.
If you've spoken with several solar contractors around the Monterey or Santa Cruz county area looking to find the right one to hire, you've probably heard, "There's never been a better time to go solar than right now." And forgive us for adding to the cacophony all around you, but we wholeheartedly agree with that sentiment! Even Consumer Reports chimed in not too long ago to tell the world the time to go solar is now!
With financing options for almost any budget, solar panel prices dropping sharply, cities across the U.S. pledging to go 100% renewable, and the tax incentives currently still available, the reasons to wait are relatively weak and getting weaker.
We seem to be at an important crossroads in the industry and with the public. It feels like we have finally hit a tipping point where we've evolved long past solar energy as a myth or something that "could be," and we're on a speeding train now, moving towards solar as a reality for the majority.
Our #1 priority at Scudder Solar is helping customers make the switch to solar energy as smooth and simple as we possibly can. We've been building a brighter, cleaner future for Monterey, Santa Cruz, San Benito, and San Luis Obispo counties since 2007, and we have no intention of slowing down. Solar power for all isn't a dream any longer; it's happening right now, right in front of all of our eyes, one solar panel at a time.
Here are 14 reasons and ways the Scudder Solar team can help make your transition to solar power a simple, hassle-free experience.
We take care of everything, and we are by your side every step of the way -- from your initial, on-site estimate and solar consultation, all the way to the ongoing monitoring, cleaning, and maintenance of your solar electric system for the next 25-30 years. We are your local solar partners for the entire lifespan of your installation, and we will always be here when you need us. We also provide additional services, including residential and business solar energy battery storage solutions like Powerwall and Powerpack from Tesla and EV vehicle charging station design and installation.
Speaking of local...
As one of the leading solar contractors in Northern California and the #1 SunPower installer in Monterey county, we specialize in custom, turnkey solar design, renewable energy equipment procurement, affordable solar power purchase and leasing options, installation, monitoring, and system maintenance for all solar project types and scopes. Above all, we have assembled an incredibly experienced and skilled in-house team of local solar design professionals, engineers, and electricians who are simply passionate about solar PV and love to help homeowners and businesses discover the savings and benefits of renewable energy.
Who's on your roof?
Are you sure you know? With our 39-year-old sister company Scudder Roofing, you can rest assured that we have decades of construction experience in the local area on properties and projects like yours. We are one of very few local solar integrators licensed for both electrical and roofing work, which gives us a distinct advantage in designing, engineering, and installing your solar electric system. It also gives us the ability to provide you with a seamless switch to solar, a watertight application, and thorough protection for the integrity of your roof and all of your warranties.
Licensed, bonded & insured.
We are fully licensed, bonded, and insured, and we maintain worker's compensation and liability insurance to protect the people we work for and the people we work with.
Financing for everyone.
We work closely with our solar customers to find the right fit financially -- from easy low-interest or PACE (property assessed clean energy) loans, to zero money down, zero out-of-pocket programs, and even leases. We want you to feel at peace and comfortable with your decision to go solar, and saving you money (sometimes even from day one!) is the name of our game at Scudder Solar. We are well known for offering our local, surrounding communities cost-effective residential and commercial solar financing solutions for almost any budget.
We know your property is unique.
Our reputation on the Central Coast and beyond continues to grow. One of the reasons behind our success in this competitive solar industry is the simple philosophy that we do not believe in cookie-cutter system design or impersonal, from afar, computerized solar panel quotes or estimates. We are a face-to-face firm. We work closely with each client for as long as it takes to to develop the best project -- from what makes the most sense for a clients' home or business financially to what solar system manufacturer and components will best suit a site location and specific property. When you work with Scudder Solar Energy Systems, your system is truly a custom solar solution tailored specifically for YOU and no one else. We do everything to see that you receive the most value for your project dollar out of your investment with Scudder Solar.
Just a phone call away.
Our team is always here, ready, willing, and able to answer any question you may have during any part of the process. We don't believe there are any silly or stupid questions about going solar or what solar can do for your home or business. Educating our customers and answering their questions on the amazing environmental and financial benefits of solar power is one of the things we enjoy most about what we do!
Our customers love working with us.
We understand that going solar can be a challenge. With so many decisions to be made and so much paperwork and red tape to often get through, going green is a big decision and can even become daunting. Our team wants your solar journey to be easy if you hire us. That's why we believe that letting our customers know what will happen (from start to finish) is the surest possible way to make them comfortable. We have been rewarded for our customer care time and time again, and the majority of our business comes from referrals and great word of mouth. At Scudder Solar, we love our customers as much as they love working with us!
Our word means everything.
We'll say it again: we don't do short-term relationships or fly-by-nights with our customers, and we don't believe in platitudes. When you hire Scudder Solar, we tell it to you straight, and we're here for the long haul. If solar is right for you, we really couldn't be happier; but if it's not the right fit, or your site isn't eligible due to location or shading issues, etc., we won't be selling you a system just to make a sale. That's not what we're about, and it never really has been. Customers are the very cornerstone of our solar company, and our relationship with you will not end the day we flip the switch and turn your system on if we become your contractor of choice. We are your solar partners for life, which means for the next couple of decades!
If we say so ourselves, the quality of our solar design and installation work is second only to our outstanding level of customer service. We guarantee you 100% customer satisfaction on every project we work on, and we strive to make our customers as happy as possible. We stand behind every system we build and everything we promise you with no excuses. We won't stop until you are 100% satisfied with our work.
