5 Tips to Help your Customers Find the Right Solar Inverter!
Solar Inverters are at the heart of every solar PV system. As a matter of fact, the amount of solar power your system generates depends on your Solar Inverter. When choosing a Solar Inverter brand, the decision must not be done lightly. Careful consideration should be applied when helping your customers buy the perfect inverter to suit their unique living situation.
Consider the unique requirements of your customer
In any business, it is important to understand your target market. You must consider what their needs are, what value can you bring to their unique situation and what value proposition can you offer.
Before making a decision, it is expected for your client to seek information before settling for an Inverter brand. It is important to identify their needs and suggest a competent Clean Energy Approved Inverter brand that can do the job.
Key questions to consider before suggesting an Inverter brand to your customers
- What is your customer’s budget?
- How much electricity is their home currently using?
- Will they be making any major renovations or house expansions in the next 5 – 10 years?
A great starting point would be to introduce your customer to your current Solar Inverter brands and list the key qualities that make that brand a great option.
Inform your customers of the Inverter Performance, Quality & Consistency
It is important to provide your customers with relevant information relating to the performance qualities of the Solar Inverter you plan to sell to them. Ensure you check if the brand is Clean Energy Council approved and up to Australian Standards. To give you an idea of which Solar Inverter brands are CEC approved check out the list here.
