Recent talk with Creative Solar USA’s CEO, Russell Seifert: Q1 and beyond!
With the state expansion rollout plan emerging, what’s the first thing CSUSA hopes to accomplish?
We want to make sure that we incorporate the best practices, customer service, installation quality all while maintaining great client relations at all times. Our goals are to acquire 200-215 new customers in the 2nd quarter in the Carolinas and state of Florida.
Are there any new product rollouts that we can plan on seeing in the near future?
Established solar companies are rolling out a new way of solar cells to be wired, making them much more efficient. Because of this progression of efficiency, we are excited to be able to offer the best of the best products to our current and future solar clients. Secondly, with LG’s new plant in Alabama, we can make new LG systems from LG solar panels to LG batteries to an LG inverter. That means, that we will have the highest quality system that consumers can purchase in the solar market.
Why are more businesses going solar this year?
Businesses are going solar because they’re realizing that solar energy makes great economic sense and provides great ROI. Plus, with this being the last year to take advantage of the ITC tax credit, solar panels are already almost sold out for the entire year due to consumers trying to get their projects in for the end of the year! This is really helping push businesses to get the ball rolling.
How has our recent Solarize Middle Ga campaign been performing? What about the solar tour?
The recent Solar tour in middle Ga has had a great impact. We reached several hundred people over the last couple of weeks and were able to educate consumers on the benefits of solar. Because of the media and press efforts surrounding the Solarize Campaign, we have received many inquiries from Middle Ga consumers and we could not be more thrilled!
Tell us more about the panel and speaking event that took place on February 28th, 2019.
It was a very interesting discussion and many people from municipalities and elected officials attended, so it made for a very good and open discussion. I spoke on the topic of solar regulations in Georgia, what needs to change and how I would like to see our elected officials make our state more stable economically when it comes to the renewable energy sector.
