The main way we make money is by providing a free 'Get 3 Quotes' service. You - as a potential solar customer - get the service for free, but the solar companies in the SolarQuotes network pay us a small fee if we send them your quote request. We get paid whether you choose to buy solar from them or not. That’s how we stay independent.
Two other minor ways we get income are:
1) If you click a green 'GO TO SITE' link on our energy retailer comparison tool and then sign up for an energy plan we get a small commission. You'll notice that most of the plans do not have these links - and we don't push the 'promoted' plans to the top.
2) If you ask to be referred to our finance partner, Parker Lane, and sign up for a financial product through them, we get a commission on that loan/product. Parker Lane will explicitly advise you of this if you choose to use them.
