How to talk to friends and family about installing solar

You know what convinced you to go solar. And you know your friends and family best. You are uniquely positioned to tell them why they should choose solar power. We recognize it can be a tricky conversation, but an important one to have, so we’ve included some tips & tricks below to help you!

And, even if you don’t have a solar system yourself, you’re still invited to be a leader in the clean energy movement. Our Solar Champions program is designed for our customers and the public alike. Through the program, we aspire to provoke dialogue and inspire leaders to get the message out about solar energy. No matter who you are.

Let your friend or family member know that we’ll be reaching out

If you fill out the Solar Champion Referral form, let your referral know that we will be contacting them soon and to be expecting a call. Don’t forget to follow up with them, too. What did they decide to do? What additional information can you provide, or questions can you answer for them?

A few ways you can ask if you can refer a friend or family member to Third Sun Solar:

“You’ve expressed interest in my solar energy system in the past, and I’m reaching out to see if I could put you in contact with my installer, Third Sun Solar. They will provide a free quote specific to your home with no obligation to purchase!

“I know we’ve talked in the past about you installing solar on your roof. If you want to learn more, I highly recommend my solar installer, Third Sun Solar. Would you like to put you in contact with them? Through their referral program, you will receive $250 off the cost of your system if you choose to make the purchase!”

“The 26% federal tax credit for solar drops at the end of 2022. This program will save you thousands on the upfront cost of your solar system, increasing your net gain in the long run.”
