Solar has been one of the hottest lead verticals for the last year and now we have a new offering that is creating an even bigger opportunity.
Call centers across the world have been lining up to produce and sell Solar Leads. Most of these call centers are taking the customer all the way through the process to set an appointment and then only making $100-$150. And they have to manage the client, getting paid, the returns, the up’s and down’s in volume and everything else.
But, what if you just take the lead a little bit further? All the homeowners really want to know how much they can save, so by presenting the savings to the homeowner, getting a e-sig on the agreement, the Call Center can get paid $2-4k in 30 days. Its super-fast, simple and pays great.
For Mortgage Rooms, this is a HUGE opportunity to make additional revenue without spending any additional money on marketing or manpower. Mortgage refinance clients are all looking to lower their monthly payments and lock in low rates, and that is exactly what Solar does for them. Lowers their payments and locks in low rates. So because these offers are perfectly aligned with what the Mortgage room is already presenting to the customer at the same time, it is an easy add on for pure profit.
But this is not just for Mortgage Rooms. Any call center with closers can be quickly trained to present savings and get signatures. Other centers doing, Debt, Student Loan, Auto, or anything else where they close customers over the phone is perfect.
1. Ask a qualified homeowner if they are interested in reducing their monthly electric bill by about half
2. Gather a power bill from the homeowner and submit to us
3. Within 24 hours, we will build a presentation that shows the estimated savings the homeowner will expect to see
4. You present the savings estimates to client via got o meeting, Homeowner agrees to savings and signs agreement via Docu sign
5. We send a tech out within 48 hours to perform a site inspection
6. Once site inspection is signed off, commission is payable Net 30
The amount of commission earned varies by 3 main factors:
1. The size of the system.
This is usually determined by their power bill, the higher their payment, means the more power they need. The bigger the system, the more money there is to make on it. Sometimes they may have a huge bill but only a small tiny roof, but usually the size of the bill is a good indicator.
2. The program they agree to.
We have several options we can get people on, cash, prepay, ppa, lease, etc… Depending on the customer situation, some deals are better than others and some pay more than others.
3. The price of the power
Just like in mortgage, if you can get the rate up a few points, you can make a lot more money. Same with Solar. Typically in CA, homeowners are paying as much as $0.38 per kWh of power they use. We can sell it to them for $0.15 – $0.18+ So the higher we sell the power for, the more we make. Even just a half a penny makes a huge difference, like from $0.15 to $0.155. When we build the proposal, we typically give you just a few options to present to the homeowner, and it’s up to the rep to sell what they can.

More About Solar Energy:
Electricity rates have doubled every 10 years for the last 40 years in a row. That means that if you’re paying $200 today, in 10 years it will be $400 and in 20 years it will be $800. By adding solar panels to your roof, you can slash your bill from the $200 today to $100, and make sure that it stays at $100 forever. Federal Rebates and other incentives are available, so act now before they run out.
That’s the quick bullet points of the program. I would be more than happy to jump on a conference call to explain in more detail or answer any questions you may have.
Let me know what you think
Once you have actually got a customer’s power bill information, and we design a proposal, we will go over it with you in detail and help you present it to the customer.
