What Legal Considerations Should Contractors Keep In Mind When Selling Solar Plus Storage Systems? Posted on Apr 23, 2019
The emerging solar plus storage market is expected to grow exponentially over the next decade. Last year, California’s most active state solar trade association changed its name from the California Solar Energy Industry Association to the California Solar and Storage Association. Across the nation, battery storage systems are becoming an integral part of the solar energy system design. As a result, sellers of solar plus storage systems must not only stay up to date on the latest industry trends related to solar plus storage, but also the evolving legal considerations of selling solar plus storage systems.
For installers of solar plus storage systems, the standard Solar Installation Agreements for residential and commercial solar energy systems can typically be used with some key modifications. In addition to including sections that cover the battery storage component and a modified scope of work for the installation and design, Solar Plus Storage Installation Agreements should include specific sections covering the contractor’s estimation of the savings potential of the battery.
