What Is a Solar Champion?

A Solar Champion is someone who helps us spread the word about the benefits of clean solar electricity–and who “walks the talk” by connecting us to people who want to go solar. Solar Champions earn $500 for each referral they make when their referee goes solar with Third Sun!

We want you to know we appreciate you for investigating clean solar power. Wouldn’t it be great if others followed your lead and went solar too?

Why Are Referrals Important?

Since 2000, we have been building our business one clean solar energy system at a time. We now have a large roster of successful projects and satisfied customers, and we are seeing strong growth from word of mouth—customers telling friends about their experience in going solar. Here is one recent example:

“We can’t describe adequately what a great crew we found you all to be. The guys at the house were so professional, efficient, tidy, and friendly. We have enjoyed meeting ALL the staff at Third Solar—feel like we made new friends! Thank you for the great service.” — C.R., Ohio solar homeowner

Since referral business is helping us grow, we have decided to begin rewarding our friends and customers for those referrals—AND to reward the referrals with a discount off their system cost.

How Does It Work?

If a friend of yours has shown interest in your solar energy system, and might be a good candidate for their own solar energy system, please give us their contact information and help make an introduction—call or email them in advance, telling them we’ll be contacting them.

If you do this, we can offer each of your referrals a $250 discount on their system in your name, AND reward you with a $500 Visa Gift Card upon their installation.

“We have recommended your business to everyone we speak with, and I know at least one of our friends has met with Tim Dunning (Third Sun employee). It is a rare and most valuable thing and we appreciate all you have done for us. Please share our kudos with all your staff that have so ably served us.” —C.Y. and P.Y., Ohio solar homeowners

What Are the Rules? 

  • Referrals must not already be registered with Third Sun to be eligible. Fill out the Submit Referral form on this page or call our office to register a referral.
  • Rewards for referrals will be paid upon customer payment of the final invoice, after completion of the installation.
  • There are no limits to the rewards you can earn, but expansion projects are only eligible if we were NOT the original installer.
  • You do not need to be a customer of ours to be a Solar Champion

What makes a good referral?

A good solar referral prospect:

  • This person has expressed interest in your solar energy system
  • Has ample south-facing roof space (or southeast- or southwest-facing)
  • Their house has minimal shading
  • Pays high electric bills, above $100 a month
  • Is adding more electric usage—like an electric vehicle, a swimming pool, or a hot tub

There is no limit to the number of referrals you can give us—we will reward you for each one, and provide the discount in your name to each referral who installs a Third Sun Solar system on their home.
