Energy By Choice has announced that it has been selected as a Sunpower Premier Dealer by Sunpower Corp., a manufacturer of high-efficiency solar cells, solar panels and solar systems.
Energy By Choice is a full-service renewable energy company that designs and installs solar energy systems, including solar electric, solar hot water, solar pool heaters and geothermal systems for homes and businesses on Long Island. Energy By Choice is owned and operated by R. Sail Van Nostrand.
Mr. Van Nostrand is very active in promoting the solar industry on Long Island and New York, as chairman of LISEIA (Long Island Solar Energy Industries Assoc.) and as Vice President of NYSEIA (New York Solar Energy Industries Assoc.). He is NABCEP certified as well as Sunpower certified. He is working hard to instill a code of ethics in the solar industry, helping consumers reduce their energy costs while preserving our beautiful environment for future generations.
The Premier certification isn't provided to just any installer; SunPower Premier Dealers must adhere to a stringent set of performance standards that cover service, quality of installation and a post-installation site inspection. Installations completed by Premier Dealers are inspected at random according to SunPower's 85 point inspection process. All Premier Dealers have also completed SunPower's certified training programs, so they can provide a superior experience to match SunPower's superior products.
"Sunpower dealers are selected for their commitment to providing customers with superior service and the best available solar technology," said Jason Stout, Regional Sales Manager. "We are very pleased to recognize the hard work of Sail, and are happy to elevate Energy By Choice to Premier Dealer within our network. Together, Energy by Choice and Sunpower are raising the bar in the solar industry with higher value products and services. "
Premier Dealers are authorized to offer residential customers SunPower's exclusive financing program, which can make solar energy an even more affordable investment.
Mr. Van Nostrand added, "I am very proud of this new designation. It reflects the quality work and attention to detail that Energy By Choice exhibits on every job."
