THEY HAVE NOTHING UNIQUE. ANY COMPANY CAN COME AND START INSTALLING SOLARS.
Some tech companies have unique product plus patents. This company has nothing. If this business will ever become profitable, hundreds of companies will come in and compete. Tesla has unique product, although not worth the price. This company just has the same owner. They install somebodies panels, what a big deal, anyone can do that.
They have contracts that don't have holes in them that make the customer pay through the nose if anything goes wrong like "any company" that you refer to so fondly. Zep solar (who they just bought) has the patents that you refer to...oh and by the way-they are an energy company with patents. They install panels not solars.
