Solar Equipment Installation - The NASS Difference

Installation of Solar Energy Equipment should always be done by fully trained professional technicians. That is what we believe at the NASS network of Solar Stores.

One huge advantage all of our NASS member Solar Stores have is that our crews are already very adept at many types of sophisticated installations. Since each member has a long-standing business in the Hearth & Home, Alternative Energy or HVAC industry their technicians are already familiar with many of the same disciplines needed in solar system installations having used them for years with appliance installation, roof top work and top notch service work.

Skill sets include mechanical, carpentry, electrical, plumbing and logistical capabilities positioning NASS crews as the best choice for solar installations. The trucks, the tools and the experience that NASS brings to your table will add a peace-of-mind and satifaction-guaranteed factor to the solar buying equation that separates NASS from the rest.

Each of our Solar Stores have had installation crews for many years and have certified design and installation personnel on board and ready to serve solar energy customers. Every member has membership or certifications from multiple industry organizations and associations. Many of our Solar Stores have been installing solar for many years and have certified design and installation personnel on board.

Product warrantees are quite good with solar components, many times running from 20 to 25 years in duration. But the more important side of the warrantee equation is whether the company that is chosen to complete the solar installation will be there to stand behind the product and the workmanship. At NASS every Solar Store has an extensive track record of "satisfaction guaranteed" projects that have been completed over many years in business.
