5 Reasons Your Clients Should Go Solar

5 Reasons Your Clients Should Go Solar.jpg

Solar energy is becoming increasingly more popular among home and business owners all over the country. For those in the know, going solar is an obvious choice. But when working in solar sales, it’s likely that you’ll have clients who do not know much about solar energy or are loathe to change their old ways. That’s why it’s important to have a catalog of good reasons and ideas that can help to convince your clients that going solar is to their benefit. Since Palmetto is hiring a new group of solar sales partners, we thought we’d offer up five compelling reasons that your clients should go solar.

A Solar Panel Installation can Improve Your Homes Value

The fact of the matter is that any potential client is interested in how your products and services address their problems and add value to their lives. Solar technology directly speaks to both of these issues, especially when you frame it around the value it adds to a home. The Department of Energy partnered with Berkley Labs for two studies that involved real estate values and solar panel installations. The studies found that on average, home buyers are willing to pay a premium of an additional $15,000 above asking price for a home that has a solar panel array on it. The National Renewable Energy Lab has also found that homes with solar panel installations tend to sell more quickly than those without them. For those looking for both short- and long-term financial gain, a solar panel array is a great addition to your home.

You Get Great Tax Rebates

One of the best reasons to embrace solar technology is that the costs of doing so are constantly falling. This is in part due to the immense tax rebates and incentives that both Federal and state governments now offer. The Federal government now offers a personal tax credit that rebates up to 30 percent of the costs associated with installing solar panels on your home. Additionally, individual states also offer clean energy tax credits that help to lower the costs of installation. After taking advantage of these tax credits, what looks like a costly investment into your home actually becomes quite reasonable. You’ll start to actually make money off of your solar panel system fairly quickly if you take advantage of these great rebates.

Solar Energy Creates Local Jobs

Chances are if a client is considering investing in solar technology, they’re also concerned about issues like the local economy. Fortunately, investing in solar energy helps to create jobs in your community. For every solar panel installation sold, it creates demand for both skilled and unskilled workers who are ready to bring their talents into a dynamic new field. The money your clients spend to go solar stays in their community, meaning that every dollar they spend helps the environment and their neighbors.

Solar Technology is Resilient

Maintaining a roof can be a costly endeavor, especially if your clients live in areas that are prone to hail and high winds. In these areas, replacing a roof can be a regular occurrence. Often, client’s are surprised to find out just how durable solar panels really area. It’s not uncommon for a home to make use of the same solar panel array for more than 30 years without the need for repairs or replacement. Solar panel installations require little-to-no maintenance and there are few upgrades. Solar technology is worry and stress-free that requires little thought to enjoy.

Going Solar can Help Save the Environment

This is probably the most obvious reason, but also one of the most compelling. Going solar is a great way for your clients to help stem the effects of climate change. By using solar technology, your clients can help to reduce the amount of harmful pollutants that are released into the environment. Traditional energy sources, like coal, gas, and oil, all release harmful byproducts that accelerate the effects of climate change. Solar panels, conversely, have no harmful byproducts. The sun offers clean, free, and renewable energy that is easy to convert and put to use in our homes.


You can use all of these reasons when you’re making a sale to a potential solar client. Often, using one or more of these reasons are enough to convince a client to adopt solar technology. If you’re excited about the prospect of working in the solar energy sector and are looking for a dynamic career in sales, Palmetto has the perfect job for you. We’re hiring new solar sales partners to join our team of Alchemists. With sales opportunities all over the country, as well as competitive pay rates, and a flexible work schedule, becoming a solar sales partner is a great way to help others while also helping the environment.

If you’ve kept track of our blog at all, you’ll know that we think pretty highly of the solar energy sector. It offers a host of benefits that you won’t find anywhere else, and you’re helping to save the environment when you work a solar energy job. While we’ve outlined how you can get a solar sales career, the traits you need to succeed, and the reasons you should pursue a solar sales career, we haven’t done much to explain why we think you should join Palmetto as a solar sales partner. To rectify that, today Palmetto offers up the six best reasons to become a part of the Palmetto Alchemist sales team.

#1: Competitive Pay Rates

Look, we’ll cut right to the chase. We’re excited to work with people who are just as passionate about solar energy as we are. We want to reward those who work hard to help us achieve our mission of making solar technology accessible to everyone. That’s why we offer very competitive pay rates. Don’t believe us? In 2017, Palmetto’s leading Alchemist made $250,000 for their efforts. We’re ready to build out our Alchemist sales teams, so we’re offering great signing bonuses to incentivize you to get started today.

#2: Work When You Want To

It seems like life is always getting more and more busy and that there just aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done. If you’re looking for a rewarding job that works with your schedule, not dictates it, working with Palmetto as a solar sales partner is just for you. You can work as much or as little as you like, whenever you like. That means that if you’re one to burn the midnight oil, you’re welcome too. Or if you’re an ardent believer that the early bird gets the worm, we want you to get up as early as you want. Flexibility translates to productivity, and when you can work when you’re most productive, you’ll make more sales and help more people go solar.

#3: You Can Work Anywhere In The Country

Even if you’ve got a cursory knowledge of geography, you’ll understand that some parts of the United States get more sun than others. But that doesn’t mean that the demand for solar energy technology is limited to just a few places in the U.S. Palmetto makes major sales to the entire country. Some of our most successful solar sales partners operate out of Florida, South Carolina, Rhode Island, Nevada, Illinois, and Massachusetts. The fact is, as the technology improves its effectiveness, and perhaps more importantly, becomes more affordable, people will flock to embrace it. No matter where you are, you can make a great living working in solar sales.

#4: Our Products Are Rolling Out Nationwide

Of course, we wouldn’t offer flexible work hours and locations if we weren’t able to back it up with our impressive array of products. Palmetto is constantly expanding its distribution network, meaning that you’ll find our products and services in homes all across the country.

#5: Do Good Feel Good

One of the biggest perks of working in the solar energy sector is the knowledge that your work is making a difference. Solar energy is clean, renewable, and effective. By connecting more homeowners with the solar technology they need, they’re reducing their dependence on harmful fossil fuels, which accelerate the pace of climate change. With no harmful byproducts, solar panels are easy to produce, simple to install, and benefit homeowners immensely. When you work with Palmetto, you’re helping to make the world a better place, one solar panel at a time.

#6: We’re A Values-Driven Company

Of course, none of this would even matter if we didn’t truly believe in our mission and our values. At its core, Palmetto strives to be the world’s largest clean energy and social-impact company. It’s why we hire talented and passionate people and why we blend advanced technology with renewable energy. We recognize that there’s a high demand for affordable, reliable solar energy technology, and we're doing our best to meet that demand. We want to create a brighter future, one powered by solar energy.
