Looking to get solar in Connecticut and binged this podcast to educate myself on solar. Outstanding podcast. The sales reps all said I was the most knowledgeable prospective client and asked all the right questions. A must listen if you are planning on going solar. Thank you!!!

Great content, great company

I’ve listen to all the episodes, lotta good advice that I learned a lot from listening to these guys. I wish the solar company was in my area, I feel like they could finally convince me to go sold or where it totally makes sense.
