2. How do I determine the appropriate system size for a customer?

Analyze their electricity bills, understand their energy needs, and recommend a system that meets their requirements while maximizing savings.

Provide case studies, testimonials, and data-driven projections to alleviate their concerns. Additionally, offer a money-back guarantee or performance guarantees to build trust.

5. How can I leverage social media platforms like TikTok for lead generation?

TikTok is a powerful platform for reaching a wide audience.
