Let’s assume that you have been working in the solar industry for some time and for one or more of a variety of reasons, you have decided to start a solar business on your own. In my opinion, it’s a great decision. You are taking your employee hat off and putting on your entrepreneur crown. You are tired of building someone else’s company and making them an incredible profit. Plus, the solar industry is about to enter a new phase of market adoption and you can take far more advantage of it when you own your own company.
That being said, becoming a solar dealer is not so easy. I’m going to list the items you’ll need to get done to start a solar business that I retrieved from AuroraSolar.
Obtain Licenses for Your Company and Your Salespeople if necessary
Develop a Lead Generation System or Assign Salespeople to Door Knock
Develop a Training Program for Salespeople
Hire Staff to Process Payroll, Taxes, and Other Administrative Tasks
Marketing items such as flyers, business cards, name tags
These are the essential items that you need to get handled. But there will be many other less essential but still important tasks to accomplish.
Here’s the biggest challenge that you’ll have to face even if you get all this done and you open up your new solar business. You’ll need to run it and pay out a large amount of money to your employees before you start earning profit to put in your own pocket. Only when you reach a certain sales volume will you be able to absorb the cost of your overhead and pay yourself profit. Unfortunately, that’s the downside when you start a solar business, or any business for that matter.
There’s a Better Way to Start a Solar Business
What if all those items listed above that are needed to start a solar business were already handled for you? You wouldn’t need to get an LLC unless you wanted one. You wouldn’t need insurance, find a solar installation company, no redline, no need to develop a training system, and no admin to worry about.
Instead, you could:
Work from Home
Represent a Solar Company that Installs in 29 States
No Door Knocking
No Ongoing and Never-ending Lead Generation
Build a National Solar Sales Team
Plug That Team into an Established Training Program
Use the Best System Design Software
Work with the Top Solar Finance Company
No Need to Worry About Installation Sub-Contractors
No Need to Worry About Supply Chain Problems with Equipment
Not Spend a Dime to Get Started (No Investment, None)
And You Could Start Today!
