What we do
We design and install energy systems at no upfront cost to you and sell you electricity at a significantly reduced price (through a Power Purchase Agreement, or PPA). The homeowner neither owns nor leases the system, it is owned by us so you don’t have to worry about paying for it, maintaining it or monitoring it. A PPA is a financial agreement where we arrange for the design, permitting, financing and installation of an energy system on your property at no upfront cost, then we sell you the electricity it produces. All at a significant discount to your current bill.
1. Basic information gathering (eg. your roof type, your utility bills).
2. One of our friendly & professional Client-Partner Associates will meet you to discuss your project.
3. If the analysis of your energy consumption data shows that you will benefit from one of our systems, we will prepare a design, proposal and contract for you to review.
4. We install a Group IV Solar system using the highest quality materials & tradespersons at no upfront cost to you. You start saving the moment the system is commissioned.
“I already have solar, what else can Group IV Solar do for me?”
Did you know that most solar systems today do not function in a blackout?
Do you want a battery pack?
Do you want a generator for more resiliency and electricity independence?
We can install these as part of the same monthly PPA!
“What’s a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)?”
A Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) is a long-term electricity supply agreement between Group IV Solar and you. Group IV Solar arranges for the design, permitting, financing and installation of an energy system on your property at no upfront cost. Group IV Solar then sells you the electricity produced by that system at a significant discount to the regular utility price.
“Will I own the energy system?”
The homeowner neither owns nor leases the energy system. It is owned and maintained by Group IV Solar so you don’t have to worry about paying for it, maintaining it or monitoring it.
“What if I sell my house?”
Most homeowners in California want to save money on their electricity bills and want to move into a house with a solar system. The most common option is to transfer the agreement to the new homeowner. After the transfer is complete, the new owner will pick up where you left off. Becoming a Client-Partner with Group IV Solar, the world’s most innovative energy company, is an asset to your house!
“Can my HOA say no?”
The California Solar Rights Act says that HOA’s CANNOT prevent your home from getting solar.
“How much do I need to worry about my roof?”
Did you know that installing solar will make your roof last longer and keep your house cooler? Our licensed and experienced roofers use the best parts and provide warrantees.
“I don’t have the money to buy a solar system, can I still lower my electricity bill?”
With Group IV Solar, the entire energy system is installed at no upfront cost, you only pay for the electricity produced by the system!
“What about maintenance?”
We take care of all the maintenance for FREE!
“I want my solar modules to look a certain way, what are my options?”
We care about aesthetics just as much as you do. We design your system to maximize energy production but also want it to look its best. Did you know that solar modules don’t just come in blue with bright metal framing? There are blue and black solar cells, aluminium and black anodized frames, you can even get frameless panels with different colours showing through or clear glass depending on the application.
“What happens after my PPA contract expires?”
There are a few options. You can renew the contract, buy the system at fair market value or we can remove the system and restore your roof to its pre-solar condition.
“My electricity bill is less than $250 a month, can I really save money?”
If you end up saving even a $100 a month (which is on the low end), this means an extra $1,200 a year for your family. These savings will only grow over time because the price escalation on your PPA is a fraction of what you get with the status quo power company. In just 5 years your neighbour will likely be paying triple what do you with Group IV Solar. Furthermore, you are:
Helping the environment;
Giving your home or office a “Green image”;
Getting paid by Group IV Solar in the future with our unique profit sharing model.
“I’m not considering solar at this moment, why bother?”
Do it for the environment, while saving money each month! Reduce your energy bills, reduce your carbon footprint, protect yourself from power outages, collect money from our unique profit sharing model, help your local economy, be a steward for sustainability in your neighbourhood, country and even the world. There is no reason NOT to go solar.
“What’s the catch with the Group IV Solar profit sharing model?”
No catch, we really give our customers half of all company profits. The other half goes to our valued employees who help make it all possible. Why? Because the founder of Group IV Solar believes in doing things differently. This goes beyond choosing renewable energy over the status quo- it means choosing new ways of doing business and pursuing profit. Group IV Solar has set the new standard in the people-planet-profit triple bottom line.
“What do you have to lose?”
Nothing! It’s win-win-win for you, for us and for future generations!
