Privacy Policy

The details of our privacy policy are below. But here are our 3 Golden Rules when it comes to collecting personal information:

" If you ask for 3 quotes, your information will only be provided to the top 3 solar power installers in your area. Each installer is only allowed to use your information to give you a solar hot water quote.

We hate spam as much as you do. We will never pass your information on to anyone except the 3 solar installers unless you give us your explicit permission to do so.

We will send you emails walking you thorough the solar buying process, and asking you for feedback. Every email will have a prominent unsubscribe link if you don't want to receive them any more."

And here's the full monty:
