Hi, I’m David Hosking
I am one of the owners of Abundant Energy Solar. I love teaching people about solar because I feel like I don’t have to sell anything, the benefits and saving of solar speak for themselves.
I started my career in the solar industry six years ago, working as a sales representative for a national solar company. Unfortunately, I felt like their motto was to get as many deals in as possible and we’ll figure out the customer service later; customer service is a bonus.
And I just got tired of that. I saw home owners who should have been taken care of better. I believe that you can create a lot of business by just taking care of people. I wanted to be able to sell a product that I knew I could stand behind and so, I created a business, with nothing but the shirt on my back.
I talked to my friend Jacob, who was working as an engineer for another company, and we created a solar company founded on the principle that if we took care of our customers, they would take care of us. I no longer wanted to have to worry about if my customers were going to be taken care of or not. Jacob ended up deciding to join me, and we knocked on a lot of doors and talked with a lot of people and found out what people really wanted to see in a solar company and we found a better way to do it.
We exceed people’s expectations on jobs that we do. And we strive to make our customers pleasantly surprised in what we do, and we show them that we care as much as if it were our own house. For example, we spend a lot of extra time hiding wires on the roof and painting any exposed pipe to match your house.
We also use high quality components – our competitors don’t do this, but we do, because we care. We don’t get as much profit per job, but our systems are better and they last longer and our customers get the savings they need.
And we believed that if we built a company like this, that the business would be there to support it. We live off the motto that when you take care of your customers they take care of you. And that’s what we ask; that when we do the exceptional job that we promise to do, that you’ll tell your friends and family about us.
And that has been our experience. As we do great work for people, they share it with their friends and as a result we have thrived as a business. We have helped over a hundred home owners and business’ break free from the utility company and start putting electricity savings directly into their pockets and save any where from $40,000 to $400,000.
And we felt like that was good, but it wasn’t enough and so we developed our 21-point audit for creating an energy efficient home where you can learn one of the biggest questions that people have; “is solar worth it?”
We’ve found that some people are interested in solar but still aren’t quite ready to make a decision so we’ve also created a free guide called 5 Things You Should Do Before Spending Money on Solar. You should get this and spend a little time considering if any of these efficiency upgrades make sense for you and your home.
