We would estimate 90% of our clients end up comfortable with their solar transaction and decide to move forward with signing. That said, we provide candid, real world solar advice. If we think the deal is bad, we’ll tell you and are not interested in charging hours to work on something that does not seem promising for our clients. In a number of cases, we have even referred clients to better developers when the first try fails.
Before starting a file for anyone, we ask for a $2,500 retainer. That covers many transactions to completion. If you quickly decide against the solar transaction and don’t sign, Strategic Solar Group will promptly return any unused portion of your retainer to you. It is important to keep in mind that the developer will generally reimburse you for these expenses within 30 days of completing an agreement. Many of our clients incur no out-of-pocket expense for our help!
