My name is Joshua Cardoza, I am a lifelong resident here in Southeastern CT. I have been blessed with a wonderful wife that has a career as a teacher in New London. Together we have a boy and girl and I have a 22 year old son from before I was married. He is in his senior year at Eastern Connecticut and he also plans to become a teacher. My career in solar allows me to have time to coach my son’s soccer team and then in the spring, I get to coach my daughters Football team. I do feel very lucky and blessed to have such a great family. Currently, I live downtown Niantic and we opened an office under the Spice Club on Pennsylvania Ave which is just a few blocks from home.
I have been in sales and service most of my adult life. From being a partner in a few cell phone stores back when Nextel was a thing. Then I worked my way up in the car business to management, but that didn’t feel right. Then, a little over 2 years ago, I found Solar, and I have not been this happy in a long time. It is an honor to work with the best Solar Panels on the market, so it is a great feeling to know that I am truly helping people save a lot of money, and I know they have the best product available for a worry free future. I know I will not have a bunch of not happy Homeowners in 10 or 15 years. I am confident they have a solar system that will last longer than I will be here….
I can offer Commercial Solar for the Small Business, but the majority of my relationships are with Homeowners.We are at a transition time when it comes to how we power our homes. For years, the utility has held a monopoly over the homes here in Connecticut.For the 1st time, us homeowners have an option, and when we introduce competition to an industry, we need to have a less expensive and better product. With Solar, we offer Cleaner, Cheaper, Price-Protected Power.My homeowners are replacing a bill that fluctuates and it has to be paid, with a level and consistent payment that is less than that home’s average electric bill.Plus, the utility, for the past 30 years, has been increasing at an average of 4% a year, and most feel this will increase when electric vehicles are the norm. So predicted savings over the term of my 25 year warranty can be $20,000 to $100,000 depending on how much power each home consumes. I have one homeowner with predicted savings over $120,000 over 25 years.
SunPower’s Warranty and the quality of the Solar panels and how they are made are many people and 8 of 10 fortune 500 companies choose SunPower. SunPower is the only manufacturer that is also the installer. Every other solar company has to provide 4 separate warranties, SunPower has the only All-In-One Warranty. The panels are the only panels made with Copper and Aluminum, therefore we are the only warranty that will not void a warranty over rust. When it comes to power production, our warranty includes the predicted production for 25 years. SunPower’s warranty states that the panels will still be producing at 92% efficiency in 25 years from now. Every other panel will be at 70% to 85% or less in 25 years.
In short, we offer a better panel that produces more power on Day 1 and even more 25 years from now, protected by 1 simple warranty that is ranked #1 by independent Solar Sites. In today’s world, you get what you pay for, and when it is cheaper, you are giving up something. The good news is, because our panels produce more power per panel, if a competitor needs 30 panels, we will need 24 and that will often make our price cheaper than the others….
