Multifaceted Service Provider
ReVision Energy is a multifaceted service provider. They are an electrical contractor, plumber and have over 10 years experience as a solar provider with all their work being performed by their in-house solar specialists.
Community Solar Farms
Community solar farms are becoming more and more popular. ReVision Energy doesn't own a solar farm; however, they are instrumental in organizing and connecting those whose conditions aren't right for a solar application, don't have a roof or simply don't want a solar array installed on their home to find and become members of a solar farm so they can still benefit from using solar energy to reduce their electric bill.
ReVision Energy is North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) certified, a U.S. Green Building Council member, CEI, an Amicus certified member, allEarth Renewables, a Certified B Corporation, top 400 solar contractors and a Diamond Contractor. They are also a member of the Portland Regional Chamber of Commerce, were named Business of the Year by the Exeter Area Chamber of Commerce, have won the North American Copper in Architecture Award and more.
ReVision Energy now offers dual-axis solar trackers, which is great because most solar companies don't. A solar tracker uses a motor and a global positioning system (GPS) to turn your solar panels, both from east to west and up and down so that they always follow the sun's elevation. According to their website, solar trackers will allow a system to produce 45% more electricity versus a fixed array of the same size. And there is a page on their website that goes into great detail with information and videos to show you exactly how it all works. This is truly cutting edge technology and something you should take into consideration when trying to decide which solar provider you should choose.
If you are just beginning to consider going solar, the ReVision Energy website has a wealth of information to help you learn and understand how solar works. And, explains in some detail, after you've signed the contract, exactly how the entire process flows from start to finish. So you definitely won't leave their website with many questions, if any.
ReVision states that all inverters feature some sort of web-based monitoring, which will provide you information about how much energy your system is producing. So obviously they do offer system monitoring, but they don't say whether or not there is any additional cost for that service or whether or not the monitoring is for production, usage or both. Therefore, once you've selected a system, don't forget to ask them that question.
Limited Payment Options
Many solar companies offer leases and purchase power agreements (PPAs), which are helpful for those who don't qualify for a loan or an outright purchase. ReVision Energy does not offer these options.
