KW Solar has helped Texans realize the value of solar systems since 2015. The company has installed over 2.5 million watts to date and continues to grow in the greater Houston, Texas area.
KW Solar has cut through a lot of the solar red tape, working solely with individuals ready to purchase and own a solar system. From start to finish on most residential properties, KW Solar can have a system up and running in a matter of weeks.
The proprietary technology created by KW Solar is user-friendly and cuts costs for its customers.
More often than not, a solar company will need to come out to the property to provide potential customers with a ballpark price range for equipment and installation. KW Solar has gone above and beyond, creating its own tool known as “The Wiz,” which allows future clients to get an idea of what a solar system may cost.
Without having to pick up the phone or schedule an appointment, users can simply utilize the online tool, the Wiz, by plugging in their address. A map will pull up an aerial view of the property. The user can then trace out where solar panels would best fit (there is a tutorial and step-by-step demonstration to find out where the fit would be) and then the numbers are given. Potential customers can see how solar would save them money on energy costs in the long run and get a rough idea of what the KW Solar service will cost.
Since KW Solar only works with clients who buy the solar system outright, the design to installation to operation process is fast. In fact, on average KW Solar customers have their solar system up and running within three weeks from start to finish. On top of that, KW Solar only spends one to two days on the roof installing the system.
To put this in perspective, most solar companies in the industry work with leasing and power purchasing agreements so it can take months to get paperwork in order. KW Solar customers will not have to wait that long.
KW Solar has licensed electrical contractors on staff to handle design and installation processes (license #32051). Additionally, the KW Solar engineer is NABCEP certified. It is difficult to be NABCEP certified, so obtaining and maintaining this status is impressive. Most solar companies do have at least one licensed contractor on staff, but to have licensed electrical contractors and NABCEP certified engineers sets KW Solar apart from the rest of the industry.
Cost is at the forefront of KW Solar’s leadership. It is important to the company that its customers own systems outright. KW Solar has also invented and instituted proprietary technology known as Jigawatt.
This technology allows KW Solar to delegate routing management work to computers. Instead of having to hire or outsource various tasks and responsibilities, Jigawatt handles it. This frees up time and capital. What may seem like a small innovation can save KW Solar customers in a big way. With automation a part of the KW Solar process, the company can turn around and offer lower prices to solar customers.
One of the reasons KW Solar is so fast when it comes to getting solar systems on customers' roofs is the fact that the company only works with those who can buy the system upfront and outright. KW Solar does not have any financing partners nor does the company utilize lease or power purchase agreement options.
While eliminating financing options does speed up the process, it eliminates the number of people who can actually start using clean energy by having a solar system installed. Most solar companies understand the burden that a solar system’s upfront costs can have on customers. The industry usually works with customers to find a financial avenue to pursue solar. KW Solar does not.
Presently, KW Solar only operates in the state of Texas. The company will work with commercial and residential properties but only within the state. That means anyone outside of Texas will need to look elsewhere for solar. Other solar companies offer services on a national or regional level, so only servicing Texas limits KW Solar and its reach.
